"Americans are very influenced by movies," Jean Benoit-Dunckel adds. "The way they behave is linked to movies and to the cinema. Movies resonate in their daily lives and in the way they speak. That is true for sex as well. America produces 10,000 triple-X movies a year. Pornography is very important here. But when you watch TV in America there is no sex at all. It's hidden. In sexual relationships, pornography is really important in America."
And that's a good thing? "Maybe," Benoit-Dunckel responds. "But maybe they're so into pornography it kills the poetry of sex. There are incredible examples of sex on the internet. It's really hard to compete with that, so maybe it makes for strange sex in the beginning of a relationship."
"In Europe, sex is something good you do for someone," Godin adds. "If you have sex with someone, it's like you cooked for them. You do something good. It's a pleasure. It's not something bad. You don't hurt someone if you make love to them. It's good."
Godin also offers a less-than-obvious pleasure booster. "It really has something to do with the religion," he explains. "In France, we are Catholic and it makes the sex really exciting. In countries like Italy and Spain and France, it's all about Christianity but for some reason, they're hot people. People make love and it's incredible. I don't know if religion is bad or good; I come from a Catholic country and we have some spice in the sex. It's like when your parents don't want you to smoke -- you smoke. It makes it exciting and cool. It has to do with the sun too. California is very sexy because of the sun. And in the south of Europe it is very erotic everywhere. But not in Germany. Germans are not sexy."
