Very good question. According to Wikipedia:
A sex offender (sexual offender, sex abuser or sexual abuser) is a person who has committed a sex crime. What constitutes a sex crime differs by culture and legal jurisdiction. Most jurisdictions compile their laws into sections, such as traffic, assault and sexual. The majority of convicted sex offenders have convictions for crimes of a sexual nature; however, some sex offenders have simply violated a law contained in a sexual category. Some of the crimes which usually result in a mandatory sex-offender classification are: a second prostitution conviction, sending or receiving obscene content in the form of SMS text messages (sexting), relationship between young adults and teenagers resulting in corruption of a minor (if the age between them is greater than 1,060 days; if any sexual contact was made by the adult to the minor, child molestation has occurred). If sexual conduct occurred, unlawful sexual conduct involving a minor has occurred. Other serious offences are sexual assault, statutory rape, child sexual abuse, rape, sexual imposition and pandering obscenity. A 19 year old may have consensual sex with a 16 year old and be considered a sex offender.

In my opinion is a necesary law, but one of those laws that needs much improvement; and in a society that is afraid of discussing openly anything related to sex, it is unlikely to get fixed.
