Going from there, where casual/intentional nudity is nothing, to the States where simply seeing a low cut top sends mothers and politicians aflutter.....no, our culture really could use a good helping of nudity.

Plus, in the age of Google, any kid the age of 8 has already seen porn, and probably gay/lesbian porn as well. So, it stands to reason, why bother, honestly, with the whole "protect the children" line of idiocy? Kids come into the world breastfeeding, but suddenly after the age of small the sight of a woman's breast will corrupt them for all time and turn them into incorrigible rapists, philanderers, and adulterers? Or whatever reason d'jour. It does not make sense. People. Are. Stupid. Politicians are worse.

Cliffs for the lazy: No, we don't have enough sex, drugs, nor cursing in popular culture mediums such as TV.
Thank you for saying everything I would have said except I spent less time in Germany. I'm sure everyone here who has been to or is in college knows what happens when the people who were sheltered their entire life go to a party. In fact just last Saturday, I met a person like that, her first time drinking, she couldn't stand on her own and we threw a guy out for trying to "walk her home" without anyone who she knew. So ya, good thing her parents sheltered her so she could almost get raped when she left her bubble of safe things.
