Angel, I was just kidding. Anyway, what would you attribute the fact that the age is higher?
“In England, Scotland and Wales, the age of consent for gay men was the subject of debate for many years. The age of consent is the age at which it is legal for a man to have sexual intercourse with another man of the same age or older. Finally, on the 8th January 2001, the Sexual Offences (Ammendment) Bill came into effect. This resulted in the age of consent being reduced from 18 to 16. This brought the homosexual age sex of consent into line with the heterosexual age of consent.”
