Potentially. The age of consent to any form of sexual activity is 16 for both men and women. The age of consent is the same regardless of the gender or sexual orientation of a person and whether the sexual activity is between people of the same or different gender.
It is an offence for anyone to have any sexual activity with a person under the age of 16. It is an offence for a person aged 18 or over to have any sexual activity with a person under the age of 18 if the older person holds a position of trust (for example a teacher or social worker) as such sexual activity is an abuse of the position of trust.
There really isn’t much more to say. The law is very clear and your friend is simply wrong. You have asked me the question and I have confirmed it.
Yes, it is legally.
Your friend is wrong unless there is a breach of a position of trust which is not the information you have given.
We can only give you the legally correct answer as opposed to the one you want.
