Im 25 yrs old, and I've had numerous 16 and 17 yr old females trying to "hang out". And I need to know if its legal to engage in sexual relations with them?
It might not be illegal on the surface, but it's definitely a bad idea. You could wind up charged with other crimes, ranging from corruption of a minor, to kidnapping, to unlawful restraint, to transporting a minor across state lines for immoral purposes. Don't take them up on their requests.
