Europe vs. America

lukas24 lukas24
Everytime I visit Europe I notice that nakedness is not nearly as taboo as it is in the US, yet here people are way more obsessed with sex. (I have lived in both places, so it's not just because I'm a visitor I think) Do you think there's a correlation?

I think it’s our puritanical roots.

If you put something such as nudity out in the open then it just gets treated as normal. If you force it behind close doors and make it seem somehow "naughty" then as a consequence you'll make people desire it more and create obsessions. There's a clear and definite correlation.

The Puritans were quite nutty for sex, actually (link)

I do think there's a correlation between these things, yes. Treat sex, and nudity, as normal and people will be less obsessed.

The Puritans were nutty for sex, but they had a different attitude towards being nutty for sex

It's probably the fact that it's forbidden. It's why more kids have problems with drinking in the US, since it's forbidden fruit

I agree with this. When people have a more casual attitude towards something it becomes more common place, less of a novelty you could say. It's fun to break rules but as much fun can't be had when the rules are more lax. That's the only reason why I like christianity, as an atheist it gives me "rules" to break.
