    Hey guys, I'm 16 and I have a girlfriend who is 15. Is it illegal to be sleeping in the same bed together (like sleepover, no sexual activity)? I really need to clear the air, but I haven't found any articles or anything. I don't want answers saying "I think it's fine". I need certainty, with documents stating that it's fine, for example; from an official law documentation.

    Thanks! It will help me A LOT!

    Simply being in bed with no. You havent done anything.
    I dont believe any such document exists and cba to look for it.

    If you end up having sex then thats a different matter.

    Is it illegal for two people to go to sleep in the same bed? No. It's common sense and you don't need a legal document to prove it.

    Legal documents tend not to go "this is fine", they usually all revolve around listing things that aren't fine and what the courts can do to you if you do these not fine things. Simply being in bed with another person doesn't constitute any crime. Hell think about it, little kids sleep with their parents all the time. Are all parents who let that happen sex offenders? No.

    In short: keep the dicc away and it's legally fine.

    Age of consent is 16 so anything sexual is technically illegal. Anything non-sexual is fine. There's no age limit on friendship.

    Basically is is illegal for you to have sex with her, but even then it would be unlikely to be a huge issue because you are so close in age.
    If you aren't doing anything sexual you're basically just friends as far as legality is concerned so its totally fine, even if you're having a sleepover or calling yourselves bf and gf.

    .No, there is no law, statue or otherwise, that states simply being in the same bed as a person is illegal if you have sex, technically that is illegal, but the law do not prosecute you people who have sex if their ages are very close (it is deemed not to be in the public interest), I would air on the side of caution and just wait till she is 16 before you do anything sexual, but sleeping in the same bed is perfectly fine

    you sound like a pathetic geriatric. when you're in school, it's about losing your virginity as fast as you can. the race starts in Y8 btw and if you haven't by the time you finish Y11, then you literally have no social value.

    If you both just slept in the same bed then that is fine I guess. Any sexual activity would be illegal as the 15 year old is under the age of consent which is 16 within the UK.
