Not a good idea. Here is the law:
TITLE 18
CRIMES AND PUNISHMENTS
CHAPTER 15
CHILDREN AND VULNERABLE ADULTS
18-1506. SEXUAL ABUSE OF A CHILD UNDER THE AGE OF SIXTEEN YEARS. (1) It
is a felony for any person eighteen (18) years of age or older, with the
intent to gratify the lust, passions, or sexual desire of the actor, minor
child or third party, to:
(a) solicit a minor child under the age of sixteen (16) years to
participate in a sexual act, or
(b) cause or have sexual contact with such minor child, not amounting
to lewd conduct as defined in section 18-1508, Idaho Code, or
(c) make any photographic or electronic recording of such minor child.
(2) For the purposes of this section "solicit" means any written, verbal,
or physical act which is intended to communicate to such minor child the
desire of the actor or third party to participate in a sexual act or
participate in sexual foreplay, by the means of sexual contact,
photographing or observing such minor child engaged in sexual contact.
(3) For the purposes of this section "sexual contact" means any physical
contact between such minor child and any person, which is caused by the
actor, or the actor causing such minor child to have self contact.
(4) Any person guilty of a violation of the provisions of this section
shall be imprisoned in the state prison for a period not to exceed fifteen
(15) years.
