Ohio age of consent?

Hello I am male and 16 years of age. The age of consent is 16 years old in Ohio. So does that mean I can legally have sex with someone over the age of 18? example. someone who is 26.

    That's what the age of consent MEANS. You can legally have sex with anyone else over the age of consent.

    Ohio is also one of the states where it is legal to have sex under the age of consent provided that the other person is not too much older - in Ohio's case, it is legal if you are over 13 as long as the other person is under 18. The age of consent itself is when it becomes possible with anyone else over 16, however much older they are.

    Needs to be 4 or fewer difference in age so you can only go as high as 20

    Yes, once you're 16 you can have consensual sex with anyone else over 16.
