Dating during 1960s Sexdatinginbangalore
My parents, who presumably had sex in order to have me, were totally reticent about sex.
They rarely, if ever, hugged in front of me, and if ever the subject did come up they zipped their mouths.
Attitudes to a variety of issues changed, sometimes radically, throughout the decade.Even in the 'liberal' sixties, conservative, traditionalist views were widely held, and many modern historians and social scientists are beginning to think that 'revolution' is too much of an overstatement.Despite this, there were changes in sexual attitudes and practices, particularly among the young.It’s the people who follow afterwards who have the easier time, sauntering along the trodden path, picking roses along the way. It’s difficult to understand sex in the 60s without understanding what life was like before the 60s. At Woman magazine, where I worked a decade later, the journalists weren’t ever allowed to use the word ‘bottom’ – not even in ‘bottom of the garden’ or ‘bottom of the saucepan’.They couldn’t print the word ‘menstruation’, and if a reader wanted to know anything about sex she had to write in to the agony aunt who might suggest she wrote in again enclosing a stamped addressed plain brown envelope into which, but only if you were married of course, she would insert a leaflet explaining the Facts of Life.
