Although we could not directly estimate and control for respondents' socioeconomic status, our analyses may have controlled for some characteristics that are broadly associated with socioeconomic status: The observed associations of race or ethnicity and of mother's educational level with the odds of intercourse are likely driven largely by socioeconomic factors. This issue is intertwined with more general questions about the modularity of mind and cognitive penetration. Finally, ambiguous figures like the Young Woman, Old Woman have been cited in debates about whether the nature of experience can be fully accounted for by appealing only to its representational content. When a female begins a relationship with a new partner, the relationship may either progress to sexual intercourse or end before the couple has engaged in intercourse. Thus, adverse effects of partner age difference may lessen as females mature. Scarce did he my body touch, Scarce sank he from the west Or found a subtetranean rest On the maternal midnight of my breast Before I had marked him on his northern way, And seemed to stand although in bed I lay.

Age gaps between partners also influence contraceptive use: An analysis of data from the National Longitudinal Study of Adolescent Health Add Health showed that adolescents with a sexual partner who was older by more than two years had a reduced likelihood of using condoms.

Among females who had had first intercourse between the ages of 13 and 15, having older partners was associated only with truancy.
To explain: on the hypothesis that the mind is modular, a mental module is a kind of semi-independent department of the mind which deals with particular types of inputs, and gives particular types of outputs, and whose inner workings are not accessible to the conscious awareness of the person—all one can get access to are the relevant outputs. Because despite all the ways in which sex has changed in the last hundred years, we persist in thinking of boys as randy little buggers who want sex, and girls as delicate little flowers who are victims. Health education programs for parents of adolescents might focus on improving parenting and communication skills, as well as on parents' knowledge, perceptions and beliefs about characteristics of appropriate romantic partners for their child, no matter the child's age.
