The law does not consider 18 year olds "boys" and for 18, 19 and 20 year olds, younger ages may be an "acceptable" consent age. I haven't looked at the source of the footnote, but I suspect they included 18 year olds since it added weight to the statistic they were trying to portray. We could also look at the age of the questioned when the activity tookplace. It may be possible that this response included acts committed before the men questioned were 18 as there is no time frame established for the act.
I only highlight this, since purposely skewed statistics, will be sighted by others to debunk the entire content.

Jay and Young are both Gay men with a pro-gay agenda. If even the pro-gays report this number the truth isprobably much more than that.
BIG GAY AL is coming for your child, and this statistic PROVES IT!
Who cares whether your "child" is in the military or votes, or is in a University. Old men want to have sex with that "boy".
Never let facts interfere with one's agenda..
There are other very suspect statistics in this piece: for example, the claim that the average homosexual man dies at 42 years. This is flat out wrong; this claim was originally made by the discredited researcher Paul Cameron, who based his results on obituaries printed in gay publications with a young readership, a research method with an obvious flaw. The truth is represented by a study that was done in Ontario recently: the average homosexual has between 7 and 20 years cut off their life expentancy (so they will probably live until their late 50s on average). This compares, by the way, with the statistics for heavy smokers, who also lose 20 years of life expectancy.
