It's not that creepy you are both adults 18 years old is pretty old you are a grown adult woman.
There is nothing creepy about it whatsoever. Age is just a number. I was never very mature when I was 25, yet I have met people who did some astonishing things at 18 I could not have done at that age.
You aren't interested in the guys attentions. Make that plain to him and tell him the sexual references need to stop, or you will report him. That is unacceptable in any modern workplace.
Just ask him to stop and say you arent interested and its making you feel uncomfortable. You arent going to ask again. If he doesnt then report him.
ps i dont find the age thing creepy, maybe a bit inappropriate. No person should have to put up with unwanted attention and the point here he seems to think its acceptable. If you laugh it off he will continue, hence you need to get across the idea its not acceptable and you will report him. If you dont want to go direct to a manager then ask one of the more experienced workers to have a word with him.
His defence will be its no harm/ banter or you encouraged him. hence the need to be clear.

Although that's a big age gap, it's not the problem here. That sort of predatory behaviour would be awful coming from anyone, regardless of their age it's just worse in this situation considering how you've described your body type as only making you look a bit younger (so a child) rather than your actual age or even older.
If you don't feel comfortable talking to him directly, which would be understandable, speak to a supervisor/manager you trust and ask if you can be given tasks which don't mean you're spending an extended amount of time with this guy. If that's not possible, ask if you can have opposing shifts.

What? Why are people talking about the age? It's irrelevant.
Speak to HR or your manager immediately. They've got a duty to protect you from this as it's a professional work environment where you shouldn't feel threatened.
