hellenmia, that’s so interesting that you’ve seen that trend in Europe – as an American, I feel like I had the bias that Europeans were more sexually open culturally (the French in particular come to mind). I hadn’t considered the influence of Catholicism in Europe and how so many European countries are religious in a way that’s similar to the American south. It sounds like the whole world over we just need to be seeing more and more messaging around real sexual facts and healthier communication in general that sex – and ESPECIALLY sexual health issues like getting gynecological exams and using tampons – aren’t morally wrong. I hope the next generation sees us as prudish and are far more open about these topics because it would save so many women so much pain and shame!
