View Full Version : Teens & Sex in Europe

I often stumble upon the really huge differences in perception in regard to nudity and sexuality between my part of the woods and specially the USA, where apparently a nipple on tv is enough to create a national frenzy.

Also what is considered 'pornographic' is geographically subject to different perceptions I noticed, where you find advertising billboards with naked boobs in our cities a naked boob is already considered pornographic in other countries, apparently our whole approach to sexuality is different. Here's a documentary which addresses these issues, enjoy;

Hey, we have nothing on the muslim countries...

Be all out war if perchance a nipple is ever shown on Al Jezeera....

That would be worse than some freaking cartoon of muhaaaamed. (who probably was an ugly looking camel toe sucker to begin with).

But yes, the USA is a flip flopper when it comes to nudity or partial nudity.

Why we have cable tv and adult theaters and now the intranets.

GREAT video... wow... I think back to my schooling and I remember having NO sex education... zilch... plus, the group of teenagers I hung out with were too embarrassed to even talk about sexuality apart from "I nailed Becky." My first sex education came from a medical library book I happened to pick up while killing time between classes. I didn't dare talk to anyone about it.

When I compare myself to the european teens in that video, I realize what a sexually messed up society I live in. We're strange.

The American dad of 3 teens made an interesting point: "We think we have high standards with having sex outside of marriage. The europeans go one up from us. For them sex outside of a meaningful relationship is stupid."

Then there is the teen who's mother bought him his first condoms at 14, but he ended up using them as water bombs.
