Question: Can an 18 year old kiss a 16 year old in Tennessee?

Re: Adult Kissing a Teenage Minor Unless it can be shown that the adult is attempting to engage in sexual activity then there is nothing that directly prohibits kissing. Although it could certainly be argued that the kissing itself is an attempt to persuade the minor to engage in sexual contact, which is illegal.
