The biggest problem here is surely Equality? If the age of consent is lowered for girls with men then it would also have to be applied to boys and men and I think any politician must be aware that large chunks of society would find that unacceptable. Breaking the Equality-link would be just as unacceptable to just as many more. I think countries like Holland and Canada have tackled this with an "age-range" system for folks until they are 21 or so. Thus notions of "exploitation" of youngsters by older folks are avoided.
