How do you say "Fucking yuck!" in Catholic?
Vatican State has its own criminal system based on the former Italian criminal code (called "Zanardelli Code", issued in 1889). Art 331 (1) of this code provides that the age of consent is set at 12 years old, but according to Art. 331 (2) when there is a relationship of dependence (like teacher/student/ etc.) the age of consent is 15 years.
But, c'mon, let's not be so quick to protest! It's not like you can just have sex with any ol' not-even-teenage child in Vatican City. If he's your student (or, um, maybe your alter boy), you have to wait till he turns 15. That seems fair.
Just make sure you don't use a condom, 'cause that's a sin.
