I think it really depends on the circumstances, which makes the concept of an "official age of consent" a weak concept in itself. I think that at 12 or 13, when most kids first experience any serious sexual attraction (that was it for me at least), the idea of sexual consent is more realistic. I think that any age younger than that there is no possibility of consent and that sort of activity is likely exploitative, similar to my view on beastiality since I don't think an animal can ever consent to sex with a human.
