    Care to elucidate? Your post as is isn't much fodder for discussion.

    Hmmmm..

    As a Brit I would say we are too behind doors about sex. I am lucky as here in Europe is very easy to get to other really different places quickly, easily and relatively cheaply. I love Northern Europe best. Have spent some time in Holland, Finland and Denmark and it is way different.

    Teen girls openly leaf through hard porn mags in the supermarket [saw on first day in Helsinki], some girls on our campsite in Holland were asking us really graphic questions after only a few hours. One asked me and my mate Neil about oral sex is if she asking about buses or trains...no inhibitions.

    I love the UK but just wish we could lean a little more towards the Dutch or Danes...

    As for America, I don't really know. Been three times but some time ago [ten+ years]. Sex didn't really come up.

    Most Aussies are also pretty comfortable with talking about sex and it is no longer the taboo subject or even big deal that it used to be.
    We do still have some ultra conservatives cranks (even politically) but now they are very much marginalised.

    That's the point: in Australia it's a fact and you can do it whichever way it pleases you (except non-consensual or underage). But in America sex still seems a sin with lots of artificial boundaries around what is and isn't acceptable. A lot of the opinions of Americans on this site remind me of an era before I became sexually active (and that's a long time ago).

    In Britain we're a lot more open about sex than people realise, even those living in our fair land. But the Dutch and Germans take it to a new level.

    In MY world it's a desire and a pleasure.
