Let's pause there. You're drunk and there's an attractive person voluntarily waiting in your bedroom. In that scenario, I think a reasonable person would think they were there for sex, or to rob you.
Current New York law has the age of consent at 17. But what was it in 1986 when this happened? (I looked online, but can't find that info before getting bored)
One more thing worth noting is that age of consent laws are not consistent for straight people and gays in most states. And unless it's been changed recently, a 14yo could get married in the state of New York under certain conditions.
I've been drunk. I was in a band in the 80s and finding an attractive lady in my room was not necessarily unusual (I preferred to invite ladies in whom I was interested back to my room on my own. Damn that road crew! ). However, there were always some questions (from me): "What are you doing here? Who let you in? Why are you here?" presumption doesn't equal a pass for me, either.
When I was growing up in New York, the age of consent was 18 up until the late 70s (like '78 or '79). Keep in mind: New York State and New York City often have "conflicting" laws. When I was growing up, 17 was the age to drive (Full license; not permit) in New York State. In the city, we had to wait until 18. Likewise, it's not impossible to get a permit to carry in New York State, but the Sullivan Laws in the City specifically enjoin you from carrying in the city, even with a state CCW.
I am not aware of any discrepancy between gay or straight ages of consent, but I never really paid much attention. As far as marriage age, I NEVER remember 14, but I remember 16. The "certain conditions" were parental consent or emancipation (no longer legally a minor).
