Italians sex xx
We keep on living it with freedom, just as with freedom we think about and talk of our bodies, yet, our youth seem to be less responsible than their parents were.
Again, though, this is far from being a typically Italian thing: it appears to be an unfortunate, international trend. Let’s come to that one stereotype we Italians love to embrace, that one stereotype about us that ends up on t-shirts and we are happy to say it’s true: Italians do it better. Recent statistics collected in the Rapporto Coop 2017 show that, in the last 15 years, there has been a decrease in sexual activity of about 10%, across all age brackets.

Italian women have a reputation for beauty, sensuality, and sexual openness and are thus lusted after to star in adult films.
In the 80s, fear of venereal diseases, and especially of AIDS, put a heavy damper on those flower-power dreams of sex, peace and bell bottoms: all of a sudden, we were left, just like the rest of the world, with a tremendous fear of contagion, which slowed things down for a while. Today, things have settled, or so it seems: Italians are more careful and mindful about the risks of unprotected sex, yet, they remain fond of it.
The average age for the first sexual experience is currently 17 for girls and 14 for boys in Italy.
Even in times when we wouldn’t openly talk about our bedroom activities, we never had, on average, the unnervingly negative attitude towards intercourse the Puritans of the Mayflower or your stereotypical Victorian had.
Sex was natural, but better kept within the very private walls of the bedroom. Especially if you had to keep up appearances in society.
Not only has the age for our first experience changed, but so has the context.One thing Italians always had on their side is a positive, natural attitude towards their bodies and body contact in general: it may be because we like to hug and kiss one another a lot, but one thing we would never be accused of is certainly of being frigid.
