Even if things are far from perfect, they have a much healthier and more casual approach to sex.In France, there is no such thing as wondering after how many dates it’s OK to have sex, no such thing as “no sex on the first date, that means you’re easy” and so on…I say , because it’s really rare that the woman asks the man out in France. Please note that in France, you rarely meet your future date in a bar or a club… A big difference between both countries is the bar scene.In France, it’s really rare that you talk to strangers in a bar, unless it’s a very lively bar, it’s late at night and everybody is very drunk and happy.OK, it doesn’t work for everything (even in France, telling your girlfriend she looks fat in that dress is a big no no), but overall, French people are much more open and upfront than Americans.
Now, here are a few important points where things are quite different between France and the US (sorry for the non-Americans among you, but I’m sure you can compare to your own culture): In the US, there are all those strange rules about calling; who’s calling who, when, how much time between two calls, etc, etc. And, usually and contrarily to the US, the more the guy calls, the better.
But early in the night, when people are still quite sober, it’s really rare.
As an (almost) rule of thumb, if a guy talks to you (a girl) in a bar, chances that he’s sketchy are extremely high.
In France, the rule with sex is simple: it can happen anytime after the first kiss… It’s that first kiss that will trigger the “ok for sex” option in your relationship.
Hence the importance of the timing of that kiss regarding to where you want to go and what you want to do with that person.
