14... that is the age that legally the government thinks that a young male of female is ready to make the decision to have sex. i personally at that age wasnt thinking about having sex. i didnt even kniw how i was at that point let alone if i was ready to have sex. if anyone else sees any fault in my logic feel free to point it out... if you agree with me please sign my petition to have the legal age for consensual sex raised to 16 years of age... every name counts! thank you so much for your support everyone!
