Sex and Morality

Sex and Morality

The laws regarding dress and morality are severe. Kissing in public is forbidden and carries a substantial fine. The fact that it happens in a dark lonely place makes no difference. Brief shorts and swimming togs may not be worn anywhere except on beaches'. One cannot, for example, wander through the streets of a seaside village barefooted or in shorts without causing quite a stir. Bikinis and two-piece swimming togs are illegal and may not be worn even on the beaches. It is also regarded as indecent for a girl to wear slacks or matador pants. Films are horribly mutilated. Anything up to 500 feet of film is likely to be cut out in any one place.
