As a European I’ve always been very comfortable with bodily functions and sexuality in all its forms, and I raised my children in an open atmosphere of questioning and investigation. The US attitude to porn (either terror or uncritical embrace) is because the US has such antiquated notions about human interactions. As your article so correctly indicates, it’s this problem that needs to be addressed. Sadly I see no sign whatsoever that it’s going to happen anytime soon.
