Downing Street has rejected a call from a leading public health expert to consider lowering the age of consent for sex to 15. Professor John Ashton, president of the Faculty of Public Health has called for a national debate, saying society sends “confused” signals about when sex is permitted. But No 10 was swift to pour cold water on the idea. A spokesman said: “We reject the call to lower the age of consent. The current age is in place to protect children and there are no plans to change it.” Professor Ashton’s intervention follows official figures which suggest up to a third of teenagers have sex before the present age of consent of 16. He said lowering the age by a year would make it easier for 15-year-olds in sexual relationships to obtain contraception or sexual health advice from the NHS.

Every household in the UK is to have pornography blocked by their Internet provider unless they choose to receive it, in a government decision that has been commended as a victory for Premier Christian Media’s Safetynet campaign. The campaign to protect children’s innocence online presented a 120,000-signature petition to Downing Street and has been credited by Claire Perry MP as having been instrumental in the government decision. As a result of the victory, porn-blocking filters will be automatically selected for new Internet customers – although they will be able to choose to switch them off.

It seems mother was right after all. Relationships that start slowly are more satisfying in the end. A study of hundreds of couples found those who waited to have sex were happier in the long run. Women particularly benefited from not leaping into bed at the first opportunity. Marriage also seemed to make them happier than co-habiting. The researchers said delaying sex gave couples time to get to know each other and work out just how compatible they were. Without this period of courtship, judgment can be clouded, leading to couples falling into unfulfilling long-term relationships. The study's authors said: 'Precocious pre-marital sexual activities may have lasting effects on relationship quality. Courtship is a time for exploration and decision-making about the relationship, when partners assess compatibility, make commitments and build on emotional and physical intimacy. The rapid entry into sexual relationships may, however, cut short this process, setting the stage for "sliding" rather than "deciding" to enter co-habiting unions.'

When it comes to regrets, there's nothing like a failed romance to reveal the emotional gulf between the sexes. For while it seems a man can walk away from a relationship with barely a second thought, his lover may worry for years about what she did wrong. More than twice as many women as men in a study said they had made mistakes with ex-partners - 44 per cent compared to 20 per cent. The most common disappointment was romance, with nearly one in five of those questioned saddened that a relationship hadn't worked. In second place were family problems, with 16 per cent wishing they had not argued with loved ones.
