    Please forgive me if this has been discussed before. I've noticed many of the members here are from different contries. It seems some countries are more opened about sex than others. Sometimes I feel the US seems more "covered up" when it comes to sex in general than other countries. For example, I remember seeing some hot sex scene in a soap opera I saw in Puerto rico. I remember thinking, they would never showed this in the US. What examples do you know of ?

    I am from Denmark and we are definitely more liberal and open towards sex and nudity than in most of the USA (I say most, because I know there are differences between each state overthere). It surprises me that the USA still claims to be the land of freedom. I honestly donĀ“t see that much freedom in the American community...especially what concerns sex and nudity. From this point of view the Americans have a lot to learn from most European countries ;)

    Hello,
    I live in the netherlands where you have a red light district in each middle town or cities. Prostitution is legalized here. Prostitutes have union. There is sex theater too in Amsterdam. perhaps several i dont know. Lots of sex shops everywhere for the numbers of inhabitants. In the nite, lots of channels switch to erotic ads.

    So you may think woww it is open-minded. But we have a problem. The dutch people are as conservative as the american people when it comes to Sex. Sex in Netherlands is a BUsiness not a way of living. Girls here are REALLY shy and dont dare to speak about sex. Some people say in europe, it is related to the original religion of Netherlands which is Protestant.

    People are unable to think about sex to relax or to have fun. And this is more a sick-sex than other things. for instance, a woman proposed me to f**** her friend who was lesbian because she wanted a child.

    That s netherlands. I call it sick sex.

    In the movies that they make in Belgium, or even in televisionprograms/series, they aren't ashamed to show nudity in it. Could be sex or just plain nudity.
    You see a lot of butts, tits on tele here if you like Dutch programs lol.

    Like the movie 'Team Spirit', it's about a bunch of footballplayers that are friends since they were kids. Lockerroomnudity involved, sex, moaning, ... But good serie :biggrin:

    I am an American who has traveled extensively. Some places are more conservative than USA and some are more free. I would say in Europe that French, Belgium and Scandinavia are more accepting of nudity than us. But in France we would call the men predators. And only in Copenhagen can you play topless in a fountain and sunbathe topless in a park without fear or censure. The moment you step onto a sidewalk though, a top is called for. The line is as if hanging in the air.

    Topless in France is only at the beach. I haven't been to a Belgian beach. And in none of the other countries should you attempt it!

    There are countless variations worldwide from head to toe veils to penis sheaths and feathers. That's only in dressing! Taking a bath or using a toilet are whole other categories.

    I don't think that one should confuse the acceptance of "public" nudity with a more open attitude about sex or sexuality. In the time I lived in Paris, I saw lots of female nudity on billboards, TV and the movies (and some male ass here and there). But that didn't translate into a more liberated attitude toward sex among the actual Parisians I came into contact with: I found them more-or-less the same as the Bostonians and New Yorkers whom I knew back home.

    There's more to sexual openness than going topless. I'm from Australia and it's clear that we are more sexually liberal than the US. Films and television feature sex and nudity in context, for example the local television series Underbelly. Prostitution is legal here, with both brothels and women working from their own apartments, and some escorts with websites. Topless is like France, at the beach but not on the street, but the beach may be just a couple of kilometres from the city centre.

    On the relationship side of things, there are less sexual double-standards. Women are able to sexually express themselves whichever way they choose, and that's considered as normal for women as for men.

    I have been to Britain and Europe quite a few times, and I find European countries to be similar to Australia. I disagree with the point in relation to the French and sex, as it is generally acceptable for the French to be unfaithful in marriage, which is not the case in the US.

    In the more distant past, the French led the way in terms of mutual sexual pleasure, and in times where oral sex was taboo in Anglo countries, it was quite the norm in France. In times where Anglo women rarely or never had orgasms, French women had a much more enjoyable time.

    There seems to be more of a need for bathroom privacy in the U.S. than many other countries. In Europe and Asia, and most recently Canada, there are convenient street urinals for the guys to prevent street fowling.
    public OUTDOOR restrooms!
    There is a bare minimum of privacy depending on how close you stand to the opening, yet none of the locals give it a second thought. It's a matter of time before the portable street urinals show up in the U.S. They would be great for construction sites, 10K, cycling, and triathlon events, and concerts.
