In this incident, it points out an interesting view of the view between America and France. The North America has a problem with sex that comes from its Protestant legacy. While in France, it really didn’t have strict conception about sex, on the contrast, in America, they do care about this because of their religion, just like when Bill Clinton had an affair with a White House assistant. It not only aroused a great sensation in society, but also he was sanctioned because he lied.
“In France, an extra-marital affair is better understood than in America where it seen as nothing less than a crime.” When America produces so many adult videos but they say they couldn’t accept adult videos pop up in their lives, isn’t it strange and meaningless?
It is the different between America and France’s view when talking about adult videos. In my opinion, adult videos are not that bad. People may worry about the influence. However, I love the Batman, when it comes out, it leads to some people died under the gun shot due to the imitation of the plots. Isn’t it more serious when we are talking about human’s life? Influence exists everywhere, not only happens in adult videos.
