I think Asian culture and attitudes toward sex are very similar to Latin American mores. The family unit is powerful, rather traditional in nature, and has a very strong influence over the younger members of that unit. Ancestors are worshiped (tomb cleaning ceremonies are prevelent in both cultures, except in Latin America people booze around the tombs). I also believe both cultures have similar attitudes toward sex. In Latin America, you may fornicate like a tomcat before marriage, but moving in is taken as a huge responsibility. It is the same in Asia - that is why so many people still live with their parents. In Protestant cultures, common law or independent living is no big deal. Granted, sexuality is more in your face in Latin America (just take their dances for example- they are full of sexuality) Of course there is the Catholic double standard in Latin Ameria. Sin six days a week and ask for forgiveness on Sunday. In Asia, sexual attitudes are conservative as a society, but very liberal on a personal basis. In my opinion, the place drips in sexuality. Its just more guarded than in the West. I think the whole world (Europe, Latin America Asia etc) have always mixed business with pleasure. It is a WASPish phenomina to draw distinctions between work and play…Just my simple two cents worth.
