    Do LPSG members think there is a difference between US and European attitudes to sexual matters in general. And in particular the free attitudes found on the LPSG where our US friends discuss the consequences of being "hung" with welcome openness.
    I sense that in Europe we are more reserved at first but hot underneath when relationships are established.
    The three women I have known intimately in the USA (from NY, The Bay area, and Atlanta) were more open from the start. I loved them all!!

    I think that, as in most things, Europeans are in the middle and Americans at the extremes.

    The extreme sexual repression of the religious right in the USA keeps many repressed (until they explode in frustration or disgrace, of course). At the other end of the spectrum, in order NOT to be repressed, many Americans swing the other way on principle.

    Europeans have a bit more balanced view.

    (Except in Amsterdam, of course.)

    Philboy, you may be right about initial shyness but hot when the shyness wears off. However, your question is difficult to answer. European countries have differing attitudes to sex. The UK is one of the more conservative and inhibited. Similarly, in the US they may well be large differences between the Bible Belt and elsewhere or between a large metropolis and small town. My direct experience of the US is limited but my impression is that straight, vanilla penis-vagina sex may show less difference in attitudes. As a predominantly gay man I think that a significant part of the US is very uptight about gayness.

    Swings and roundabouts.

    When it comes to openly discussing matters sexual and endowment-related, I think Americans are more forthright and open than Brits. But you're right, this is down to different personality traits between British and American people, which doesn't represent true social attitudes. Underneath, society in the UK appears to be far more liberal. Our TV is far more risque with significantly relaxed broadcasting laws relating to nudity and sexual content, and the British public is significantly less homophobic than the American.

    So I think that you're right. Americans are more forthright and outgoing in their personality, but generally Brits have a more relaxed and accepting attitude overall...

    In Italy we are reserved at the beginning, especially in small cities (that make up about 75% of the population). For example, speaking about penis size between friends in quiet uncommon.

    Couples abstaining from sex until marriage are now a very slim minority: as others said about europeans, we are very open once in a relationship.

    There are obiously the extremes: radical catholics that abhor sex by principle, and guys/girls that change a partner per day.

    There is no embarass about buying condoms or pregnancy tests, that are commonly sold in pharmacies and supermarkets, as well as in authomatic machines.

    Nor is pornography a taboo: almost all newsagencies have tons of material!

    I am form Europe, but now I live in USA (CA).
    I ca compare the American guy and European guy.
    Before when I was in Europe I thought American guys more open and free in sex than we - European.
    Now after 1 year my life in USA I ca say- American guys have inferiority comlex. They are afraid to show their penis in shower and steem (every time they take a towel) It is very stupid. In the sauna or steem... They are afraid to say good words to women (because the women are very free and every women can sue the gay for only looking - it is sexual harrasment in USA).
    I think American guy only show their sexual freedom in internet and talking, talking, talking.
    Sorry guys, but it is my opinion. I like everybody. I hope you guys will be more free.
    Now I am very proud of my Europen blood.

    i think the Eurpoeans are more matter of fact and take sex as just part of every day life, no big deal, arent as hung up about defining roles. Americans seem to have to make it some thing dirty and feel guilty about it, except for a growing segment of more enlightened "european like thinkers" who are getting tired of the far right retoric

    This question might possibly one for the biggest generalisation in the history of the site.

    In Europe we have differences North East South and West - in the UK we have differences between England Scotland Wales and Ireland and within these we have North South Highland Lowland differences.

    Having said all that, we are less egocentric - we don't take things for granted and expect everything on a plate - I think we work on things harder but are more chilled at the same time.

    I think many US guys get a hard time from some of the US women who seem to use their sexuality as a favour, but then compain if the world isn't moved - we expect sex to be completely two way - in fact I would say that we expect women to enjoy sex more than men.

    Now shoot me down.

    I dont think that English attitudes towards sexuallity reflects European attitudes...at least the French, Italians and Spanish...the best sex scenes for me belong to those 3 countries and their movies...they seems so hot and sensual and open and etc...i love to rent foreigner movies for this motive because they are familiar to me and a good exemple that i like to see.

    Dont get me wrong...people are people but between US and English i do not see much difference (yet)...and both are reserved in my views because i feel they do not let passion take over and etc...but for sure people are people and they born hot all over the place...:wink:

    I like hot, expressive and "dramatic" too....:biggrin1:

    I don't believe this is something that can really be answered with any degree of seriousness or absolute decree. People are people and they are different and varied no matter the country. Especially when dealing with societies that for all intensive purposes are equal. You will have variations on the sexual freedom front no matter where you go be it a European state or the different states of the Union. There will be further degrees of dif within those states and even within local communities. Any generalization beyond that is really a mute point.

    Great topic.

    I see the reverse philboy. Here in the States the undercurrent "hangover" from our Puritan foundations (especially here in Boston) do not sexual freedom make. I think, from my own experiences on the Continent, that the Italians in particular suffer from the denial piece around sexuality and esp. homosexuality. But the French are - well - the FRENCH! And I find those experiences I've had in the British Isles (England and Scotland only) have been more open and direct. The sex is better, generally, and the attitudes I've encountered in the general population seem to be less black and white about sex.

    I have found that the Brits and Europeans in general are just more open. Here in the States we are always having to look over our shoulders to protect our careers, reputations etc. We have background checks, credit checks etc. just to get a job at Mcdonald's. Sexuallity still seems taboo in a lot of the country, although things are always much more open in the large urban areas.

    Maybe its just me, but I have never been hit on in the UK. Going to bars in the states, I get comments, glances, smiles from people who are obviously interested. In the UK, people tend to stick in their own group of friends and never glance over their shoulders...which is the case with all of Europe (for me).

    I get the impression Europeans think Americans are sluts (insincere at least) and tend to steer away. This is my experience...

    I've found that people from the US and UK generally have slightly different accents.

    Oh, and British people smell funny.

    I am a gay American living in the UK presently and from my experience I think a difference- at least among gay men- is that Americans, as the ultimate consumerist society, tend to view sex in the early stages as a transaction. We tend to be more concerned about size, performance, etc., whereas the English tend to focus more on the experience, chemistry, etc. of a sexual encounter. I think because of these differences Americans may seem more open about sex because we will talk about the mechanics more readily, but we can also be more conservative because we shy away from focusing on the experience.

    Of course, this is a very broad generalization and should be taken as such.

    I found European guys (for the most part) to be more romantic. I also noticed that my "type" (beefy/muscular pretty boy) goes over much better in the US and Latin America. Skinny seems more popular on the other side of the pond. Every Frency guy I've met was a big slut. Did I set off the stereotype alarm?

    It might also have to do with the simple fact that Europeans are not as heavy as Americans. America's obsession with super-sizing now has moved to clothing, a European large t-shirt sells as a medium, in America.
