18 and 14, that's not unreasonable nor unrealistic and 100 years ago it was common. What wasnt common 100 years ago was people having multiple partners at 1 time. And for those who think the 14 year old didn't have multiple partners wellllll you're being awfully naive.

Lots of 14 and 15 year olds are actively looking to hook up. But if one half of the couple is 18 or older, that's a felony. I could never convict an 18 y/o male who succumbs to the solicitations of a 16 y/o girl on a sexual assault or rape charge.
