We only held hands like 7 times

Visitor's Question from a 16-20 year old Male
I have a question about the topic "Under 18 / Minor Dating an Adult". In your text, it states "If an adult now touches them at ALL in a sexual manner including kissing, they are sexually harassing that minor." I am 18 and my girlfriend is 14. all we did that was considered "contact" was only holding hands and hugging. We only held hands like 7 times and rarely hugged throughout our 1 year together. Does that mean I am doing illegal?

RomanceClass.com Advice
The advice on the webpage is describing the most strict interpretation.

Different states have different laws.

The only way to find out for sure is to consult a lawyer. I imagine you don't want to or can't approach a lawyer. You can also get advice by calling a sexual abuse hotline. 1-800-856-4673 is a national hotline for sex abuse.

Good luck! George
