Modern Taboos?

“I think moral ideals loosened up in ’68, but the new generation has become more staid again.

The ideal that you have to have sex with at least 20 people before you commit to one person is now stale and embarrassing. The youth of today wants to have fewer sex partners and commit earlier, it’s just the stuffy parents who say “Nooo! You are much too young! Don’t act out until you’re 30!”

One particular taboo that probably wasn’t as much of an issue in the past as it is today is large age gaps. But it is difficult to write something new about it, the books you could buy 30 years ago were full of stories about old guys with young things.

Stories where women are heroes or victims are very fashionable. Indiana Jones only as a woman.”
