oh yes of course, I agree, the European cultures are much more liberally open than the US. Britain is on a par with you. We here in Oz are quite prudish believe it or not as a society and it drives me batty. Why? Because as with the US and Britain, we know sex goes on as anywhere else, but it’s repressed artificially. Ironically it is used to SELL stuff, but woe upon the poor soul who just wants to express their sexuality more openly (within reason). And of course the MEDIA can just do what it likes and most often just tries to dictate what we “should” be doing as “normal”.
