Can I have sex with anyone above 17 in the state of Missouri when I’m at the age of consent?

Hi I’m a gay 17 year old in Missouri, I was wondering since I’m off age of consent that means I can have sex with anyone of any age above 17 right? I was wondering how it all works

Yes anyone over the age of 16 subject to other restrictions including incest. However, sex with a minor can be tricky and family members have been known to get the minor to cry rape. Try sticking with your own age bracket.
