    I think you should say something! Isn't this still statutory rape?

    I think you should grow up in all honesty. 16 year olds are above the age of consent for a reason, your mate can do who he likes, as can the other lad.

    Its their lives and 16 is the age of consent so he wasn't being taken advantage of.

    I imagine the 16 year old may have been pressured into it a bit. How long has he known his 23 year old friend? You should speak with your friend telling him you're worried and just trying to look out for him. If he was a good friend he would appreciate your advice and explain how great the 23 year old is. If he is not a good friend, he will say something like "mind your own business."

    Why would it be different if it was a girl? They're both over the age of consent.

    It's pretty childish to believe that unless people are exactly the same age then something must be wrong. Welcome to the real world where people aren't grouped by year of birth, and shock horror, people who aren't your exact age will become your friends and partners. 23 and 16? Not even worth mentioning, don't be so patronising to your friend (who, by the way, is not a young boy).

    If you were concerned not about this, but about them meeting online, why was this not even mentioned in your OP?
