jailbait
American and Australian English

->Meaning: someone below the legal age of consent

-For example:

-He claims he had no idea the girl was jailbait, and insists that she told him she was nineteen years old.

-One of the greatest novels in the English language is about a man who falls for a girl even though he knows she’s jailbait. It’s called “Lolita”.

-Origin: From the fact that in many countries an adult having sexual contact with an underage partner can be given a jail sentence. The underage partner is “bait” that could lead to jail.

-Variety: This slang term is typically used in American and Australian English but may be used in other varieties of English too.
