Re: Age of Consent in US

I wholeheartedly agree with the consensual idea. The thing is, people aren't always thinking about it enough (pregnant teenagers?) when they have "consensual" sex. I know that when my ex-gf and I had sexual relations (at 15/14) we understood the pregnancy concept, but not how sex would be ...

Pretty sure this is a different kind of courage. She's a decently good friend, a year younger (and I'm just 16) and I would just hate to lose the friendship or hurt her.
