I believe that is what the age of consent is all about, arbitrary though it is across the states. It is theoretically the age at which one is capable of deciding whether sexual activity is a wise decision with that specific person at that specific time. Corey had already questioned the wisdom of his decision and felt he had made a mistake. That seems a logical questioning for teens still in school and preparing for college. Risking a pregnancy at that point in time is not something to be taken lightly. Unwise decisions about sex and mistakes in making decisions can be made by adults also, and hopefully we all learn from our mistakes. It isn’t a matter of political correctness or of sex being a normal function. It is a matter of being mature enough to make the judgement call about whether it is a good choice for me at this point or with this person or for this reason.
