When teachers have sex with their impressionable students that's pretty much how it works.
A minor can not legally consent, hence it is rape.
if the miner is giving consent then that's not rape.But it's still wrong taking advantage of a young mind.
Both should be illegal but one is clearly worse.
Just because someone is young, doesn't mean they cannot consent.
If someone wants to have sex with an older person, its their choice. I never liked the term statutory rape, no rape was involved.
