Europeans, correct me if I'm wrong....but unlike America where sex of almost any kind is taboo to an extreme on prime TV (what a game they play of
playing the edges on that one too) yet...violence of any extreme nature is pretty much okay. I haven't seen an accurate depiction of a gunshot to the
head on prime TV yet...but it'll come, I'm sure.
In Europe though? Isn't it just the opposite? Sex is more a natural part of life and not something to get all giggly and taboo about while extreme
violence isn't on TV, on some prime channel, almost 24/7.
