    From my view of the European media, I get the feeling that males are open sexually to both females AND males. Or they are open to the idea of at least kissing another man. Do you think this might be true, at least in comparison to the US?

    I tend to think Europeans are also more progressive with sexuality and aren't as prudish about nudity as we are in the US.

    MuchMoreThanMuscle said Many Italian men from Europe are so closeted and have a lot of shame. I find them to be worse than American men.

    Really? I've always thought a lot of western Europeans were more comfortable with sexuality than Americans.

    I knew an Italian exchange student in college and I'm sure he was at least bi and didn't seem that homophobic at all. In fact I he seemed pretty comfortable with his sexuality and was actually pretty flirty. Thus began my thing for Euro guys.icon_smile.gif Maybe it's the fact that he was born and raised in the city though.

    The big difference is religion.

    Italy notwithstanding, Europe seems to place far less emphasis on religion than does the US. I've had interactions with many music industry people in Europe, and not once has religion come up. The last time I flew to Nashville, the record exec sitting next to me on the plane asked -- within a few minutes of meeting -- what church I belonged to.

    Without religion to dictate what's right and what's not, people become much more accepting.

    One of my most enjoyable nights in Europe was at a club in Ibiza called Space. What I loved about it was that the crowd included all types: straight, gay, male, female, young, old, pretty, not so much. And everyone accepted everyone else. Just as I would be telling a young women how hot I thought she looked, her boyfriend would be telling me how much he admired my body. Very cool.

    I can't imagine a party like that happening in the US. A shame.
