    Why not just Google the age of consent wherever you're from..

    In some jurisdictions but not others.

    Laws vary everywhere.  In a majority of US states, the answer would be yes except to sex with someone in position of authority, such as employer, teacher, coach, pastor/priest etc.

    In almost every US state, Canadian province, European state, Australia and practically everywhere in the world that would be legal EXCEPT California.

    Depends on WHERE.  And may depend on the age of the other person or if they hold any position of authority over the minor.

    In most of the US, a 17 yr old can, as long as the adult isn't in a position of authority

    Depends on where you are.  In the majority of the US, yes.

    You need to check your State laws on "age of consent".

    It's an easy Google search.
