2. What if the underage girl herself consented to the sexual intercourse?

You will still commit an offence. Unlawful sexual intercourse offences with underage girls are concerned with the act of sexual intercourse and the age of the girl when the act occurred, not with whether or not the girl consented. If she did not consent, you could be charged with rape contrary to section 118 of the Crimes Ordinance.
