http://www.ageofconsent.com is a good site, and should answer your question.

I would go there and cut and paste it for you, but my computer's messing up. ;[

Hope that helps you.

From what I can see, the AOC in Virginia is 18, unless the partners are both under 18 but older than 15.

I'd recommend that you try to check your laws locally, if you call your local sexual health clinic I am sure they can help you locate resources.

Yup, as it's already been said, it seems like it would be illegal from that link.

This is off-topic, but the really weird thing about the chart on that link is that is has the consent ages for male/female relations, male/male ones, and female/female ones. There are quite a few places though where same gender sexual relations are ILLEGAL. I didn't know that...
