Yes, still illegal; parents are not empowered to break the law nor to allow their kids to do so. And if they do give that ?permission,? they could be charged as a principal in the unlawful sex act that ensues.

Consent is useless. That's why it's called statutory rape. If a parent allow her 12 year old to perform in adult films, do you think that "consent" would make it legal?
