In other words, what you expect sex to be like, to go like, to require of you and a partner at this age is probably a bit more off base than your expectations two years from now, a lot more off-base than your expectations will probably be four or five years from now, and way, way more off-base than your expectations will probably be ten years from now. In your teens and twenties, a lot of development happens pretty fast sometimes, so even just a difference of one year can be a lot bigger than it seems like it might be. You also might not be ready to handle even some outcomes you think you might want , like your boyfriend winding up very attached to you… maybe too much for your comfort. Or your own feelings being stronger…but him not reacting well to that and running scared. I think you should enjoy and value those feelings.

The Health ministry has objected to a proposal by the Court of Appeal that calls for the lowering of the sex consent age to 16 years. In its submission, the ministry states that teenagers are in a transition period, which raises their risk of suffering psychological and physical harm. Appellate judges Roselyn Nambuye, Daniel Musinga and Patrick Kiage had ruled that time was ripe for the country to consider changing the Sexual Offenses Act, citing the lengthy jail terms imposed on young men convicted of defilement. They made the observation in a case where they reversed a year sentence slapped on a man who had impregnated a year-old girl. According to the judges, the country should discuss challenges of maturing children, which include morality, autonomy, protection of children and the need for proportionality in punishing sex pests. The judges referred to the jail sentences as an unfolding tragedy. Maturing adults According to the judges, it is unrealistic to assume that teenagers and maturing adults do not engage in sex. But the Health ministry says although minors engage in sex, adolescent girls lack the skills to negotiate safe sex.
