The reasoning is simple, from simple folk. If you penetrate someone against their will, that is rape. There is no other form of rape.

Some people have taken the age ranges in these consent laws as literal science. ... It's a gray area. Young teens can give consent, and they can be in mutual healthy love with an adult man/women. It's possible, it happens. Is that the norm though? Probably not, which is the real reason for the consent laws. ... I think it should be the average age teens actually become sexually active, and not the age they technically can. For the record I see no reason a 15yr old can't have consensual sex with someone 18+. My view.
