16

The age of consent for both heterosexual and homosexual relations in Maine is 16. This is the age at which a person may legally consent to sex with someone over the age of 21. In many cases, Maine law permits sexual relations between adolescents, as long as both are aged 14 or over and the age difference is no more than 5 years.
