In common law jurisdictions, statutory rape is nonforcible sexual activity in which one of the individuals is below the age of consent the age required to legally consent to the behavior. The terms child sexual abuse or child molestation may also be used, but statutory rape generally refers to sex between an adult and a sexually mature minor past the age of puberty , and may therefore be distinguished from child sexual abuse.

A NEW BILL to protect children from sexual abuse online also includes a clause aimed at teenagers who are a couple of years apart and have had consensual sexual relations. The purpose of a Romeo and Juliet law is to prevent a sexual act that occurred between individuals who are just a few years apart in age being considered a criminal offence. At present images of child pornography must be downloaded to be an offence but the Bill criminalises viewing of such material alone.
