I turn 18 soon is it still legal for me to date my boyfriend who will be 17 if there is not sexual activity
Dating is not illegal. "Sexual intercourse" (which includes penis-to-vagina intercourse, oral sex, anal sex, or insertion of any body part or object into the anus or vagina - penetration however slight) is illegal. Both parties to sex must be 18 years old or older in Wisconsin. "Sexual contact" (which includes touching of any breast, buttock, penis, vagina, or pubic area either over or under the clothes) is allowed if both parties are at least 16 years old. However, exposing genitals and possessing naked photographs is illegal, so be sure to avoid these potentially problematic activities.
