That's taking prurience a bit far.
This forum's also open to Americans and they're a bit... let's call it slow, in a cultural-development sense.
Guilty as charged. I tried to broaden my "cultural-development" in the European sense so to speak when I was in Germany. I really did. I was totally accepting of the topless sunbathing regardless of gender - I thought that was absolutely fine, marvellous in fact, in almost every case with a few exceptions. But then the Speedo thong get up sooooo many grossly overweight European men seemed to prefer kind of muted my enthusiasm in my endeavour to embrace the cultural-development of which you speak.

And what is with the dress socks with sandals?

Hey, there's a reason the rest of Europe avoids Germany for the summer holidays...

That is not just a European thing, go to Miami or any southern Florida beaches. But then again, that might not be a bad thing. Somehow, we got off topic with these fashions discussion.

They all came down to Kriti when I was living there. Bare breasted grannys, shudder. Sometimes bring a granddaughter, so the contrast says, "What is before, and what will be after."

Don't have friends named Dick loan you their tools, and don't misspell prostrate, or adservers will add that together and come up with wrong conclusion.

Hey Spear it's OK - it's the price we pay - being American (i.e. USA) is like being the prettiest girl in the class, all the other girls hate you. :D

We don't hate you. We just point and giggle, saying "there goes that girl who thinks she's the prettiest girl in class." :-)

Or about the Belgians, for that matter, but that doesn't concern you as a German.... :wink:

Not bad actually . . . . although the pantiehose can be uncomfortable in hot weather.
