Age of consent generally deals with vaginal sex. Although some states (and countries, I just noticed you're from the UK) classify oral and anal sex under this category, I'm confident in saying that age of consent deals with vaginal sex.

That being said, it's not necessarily illegal where you live. However, you may want to consider the social and emotional consequences of sexual intimacy before you start engaging in them frequently. If you're worried about it from a legal standpoint, I would guess you'd be worried about it from other standpoints too.

But to answer your question directly, I doubt it. I'm not familiar with the UK's laws on sexual consent.

Hope I could help. [Smile]

Kate,

I see that you're from the UK. So, first let me state that you really should research this topic yourself, or with the help of a friend, a parent, the school nurse, a lawyer, or anyone else who can give you a certain answer.

I am from the USA and I am a lawyer. My state has an age of consent. It's 16 years of age. A person who is under the age of 16 cannot legally consent to sex.

Your question deals with "fingering," which is legally defined as Digital Penetration. Digital Penetration is sex under the law in my state. Thus, "fingering" a girl who is under the age of 16 is against the law.

Vaginal, anal, oral, digital and/or manual sex are all forms of sexual activity.

PLEASE, do the research before engaging in any sexual activity that could result in the criminal prosecution of you or your partner.

It's better to be safe, than sorry.
