South Africa has a somewhat complex regulation when it comes to the legal age of consent for sex or any related sexual act.Generally the legal age of consent is considered to be age 16 and above for all genders and sexual orientations, but certain exceptions apply, including that of sex with someone with a mental disability and other factors.
It is illegal to have sex with a child under the age of 12, and for a child under the age of 12 to have sex with any person (regardless of age), even if the sex is consensual between the two persons.
The Act governing the age of consent, and other related sexual matters and offences in South Africa are the Criminal Law (Sexual Offences and Related Matters) Act 32 of 2007, as amended.
A Facebook page cropped up in April called Blesser Finder Mzansi to facilitate contact between women responding to the messages sent in by eager men.
An early post reads: "Are you a Blesser looking to bless a Blessee? We have hundreds waiting to be blessed." A recent post on the Blesser Finder Facebook Page.
Consensual sex is also allowed between children where one is below 16 and the other one above 16, provided that the age difference between them is not more than two 2 years.
