Actually, I take that back. Those idiots that were offended by Janet's boob do not represent me. The majority of people didn't think it was a big deal. Which begs the question was it the boob itself or who the boob belonged to. But I'm not going there.
We have our brothels, strip clubs, sex clubs, BDSM clubs, fetish clubs, escort services, etc. The only difference I've seen from traveling through Europe and such is that the open viewing of naked bodies, i.e. showing naked bodies on broadcast TV is seen as normal. There's no shame attached.
Americans still have a lot of Victorian ideas when it comes to nudity and sex but it has no effect on the birth rate or any other signs that people have a problem with having sex. Sex is selling freaking body spray. The "repression" label is a myth, pure and simple.
