I spent some of my most formative years (17 to 20) in the Army in Germany.
I lived off base and had several German freinds. They were uniformly mystified at how uptight Americans were about sexuality. I thought I was enlightened and experienced about sex and sexuality...as most 17 yr. olds do. I knew nothing.. it was an education and eye opening experience that I have carried throughout life and has made me who I am.

What did they know that made them wise beyond their years?

It is just a more sexually open culture. More open about a lot of things.
