okay so im dating this boy hes 18 and i wanna have sex w him but he doesnt wanna catch a case so i dont know what to do because i really like him sexually
If he doesn't want to "catch a case" tell him to wait until you're 17.
The 18 year old can get arrested because you cannot legally consent to sex until you are 17.

As my colleagues have said, if your boyfriend doesn't want to get charged with a crime because he has sex with you, then he should wait until your 17.
You cannot consent to sexual contact until you are 17. Your boyfriend can be prosecuted if any sexual contact takes place.
