I think it could be doable if you were a woman writing a girl, but I don't think it'll fly as a male writing a girl. YA self-discovery can be received very well, even with a tricky subject like sex, but you're going to run into problems when you're a grown man writing about a teenage girl's sexual self-discovery. Namely, how on earth could you possibly know a single thing about it?

A lot can be forgiven if you write it particularly well, but you're fighting an uphill battle when it comes to the demographics here. You're not drawing from your own experiences for this story. You're an outsider, but you're also a grown man philosophizing about a young girl's sexuality. It's a discomforting premise.
