I'm really glad Penny said she loves Aggie with such conviction. She didn't force it, or plead, or anything like that. She stated it as a simple fact. That's a great sign; she probably means it. That said, I think Aggie has the right to be worried. She's had these concerns for a while, and I had to wait 'til she expressed them specifically before posting.

Bolded for your convenience. Having heard Aggie say she didn't like it at all, Penny recognizes that it's not good sex if one partner loves it and the other hates it, or is scared by it. Again: not backpedalling.
Exactly. Aggie didn't hate the sex, but I think it helped her solidify that "out-of-place" feeling she's been having for a bit. Now they've stopped "playing house" and are in real relationship territory.

ETA: Call this manipulative if you want, but Penny knows she doesn't really have the power to keep Aggie in a relationship against her will, and that Aggie's too smart to be kept by trickery. All Penny's trying to do-- all she thinks she CAN do-- is prevent an impulse-based decision.
Which is probably a good idea. Justified though they can be, impulse decisions don't usually work out well in this comic.
And now that all that's out of the way...Aggie has a nice ass. There. I said it.
