Physiologically, in adolescence we are walking sex hormones, bubbling over and barely in control.
To all my more “mature” readers…come on now…think back…you can remember being exactly like that too, even if you were forced to repress these feelings and NOT act on them.
I am British and am interested in Persian culture / language and Iran itself.
My problem is that time and again I meet men who think Oh, she’s easy because she is ‘English’ and they then revert back to marrying Persian girls. I hope that many members of our community write in and share their thoughts as well, and I hope that some of them serve to provide evidence contrary to your assumptions.
Whether or not we establish barriers (social, cultural, familial), teenagers will be teenagers and they will do what they want to do, often without our knowledge.
The times are changing in ALL cultures and the younger generations across the world are probably becoming more alike than they ever were in the past because of technology, the internet, ease of travel, and so forth.Furthermore, there are just certain human factors that no culture can overcome.I, too, have heard many times from Iranian men (or men from any of the middle-eastern cultures for that matter) that they are happy to date American or non-Iranian women, but that they would never marry one.I believe that some of this is related to the perception that they will more likely find a virgin in the more conservative and traditional of the two cultures (the middle-eastern one), but that it also relates to cultural similarities.Now, perhaps if you were able to get statistics on the numbers of girls who were virgins in each culture, the numbers might be skewed in the direction of the more liberal culture.
However, I would also imagine that these statistics would be questionable unless obtained through physical exam since solely self-report would likely yield inaccurate data from the middle-eastern side.
