What's wrong with it on a basic level is lack of healthcare and a lot of antibiotic resistant bacteria. Urinary tract infection from early sexual contact cost a friend of mine a kidney. We did not used to be fertile till our 20's and UTIs were not caused by such aggressive infections. Dealing with the biological realities of sex is something our society really does not want to do.

this is demonstrably false. at no point in human history in ANY major civilization have an average age of fertility in the 20's. the average age of first birth for humans is between 13 and 14 years old if we consider all of humans in all of human history. it wasn't until the last hundred and fifty years where it became uncommon to have your first child at this age.

The average age of first birth during medieval times was 24. How can you conceive at 13 if you don't menstruate (or ovulate) till 16? How do you plan to deal with the UTI issue? Everyone cannot run out and get a new kidney like Selena Gomez.
