I am 17 and I am wanting to know if (in Texas) I can have SEX with anybody OVER the age of me (17-99) even though my parents may not approve of it without the person I'm having SEX with getting charged with anything ?
You do not want to hear the answer because it is not a legal response. Listen to your parents who have your best interests at heart. What difference does it make to you if it is legal if you are ready to ignor your parents and their good advice? They have more reason to care about your and protect you then the man or woman with whom you are contemplating sex.
