Hi Jim, Well, I don't either, but I have a pretty good theory why that is. If we consider that the U.S. is largely made up of Christians of one denomination or another that's obviously going to reflect on the public outlook on sex. Let's not forget in the 2000 and 2004 elections most Republicans got elected by getting on the God, gays, and guns compeign platform. Afterwards we had very stupid discussions of ammending the constitution to define mariage as a union between a man and a woman. As though passing a law can stop homosexual couples from having a relationship which it couldn't. Personally, I feel what a couple, same sex or not, does in the bed room is none of the government's business. The churches can mind their own business, and stay out of peoples lives. They have no business trying to tell everyone else what kinds of movies, games, etc people should watch or play. However, they do have an incredible sway over American politics and to some degree over public opinion. In countries where Christianity is not the mainstream religion, such as Japan, you find much more relaxed views of sex, and much more sexual content. I know the Japanese have adult oriented cartoons and games where sex is quite previlent. Obviously, they don't have a problem with that kind of content, but we certainly do here in the U.S.
