However this portion of the law has been amended by a controversial court ruling in the Pretoria High Court on the 15th of January 2013.Judge Pierre Rabie ruled that two sections of the Sexual Offences Act, which criminalises consensual sexual activity between children age 12 and 16, invalid and deemed them to be inconsistent with the South African constitution.
In South Africa a person is considered to be a child, when he or she is under the age of 18, however the Sexual Offences Act does allow consensual sex for persons 16 and older.
This creates a problem where the parents of a child between 16 and 18 do not consent to their child having sex.
It may in some cases be considered as ‘statutory rape’: If the parents are willing to go through the criminal procedure by opening a case and if the court can determine that the child did not possess the mental capacity to be considered “emancipated” or of a mental state to make decisions like an 18-year-old adult.
It can also be argued by the hands of Act 32 of 2007 that children under the age of 12, engaging in sexual activities with themselves (for example masturbation), is illegal as the act defines sex as any activity where sexual arousal or stimulation is induced, that includes (as per the act), by oneself.
In South Africa it is illegal to watch or participate in any form of pornography (‘porn’) if you are under the age of 18.
