Describe the British attitude towards sex and its consequences.
British feel quite strong about their privacy and do not like 'rude' questions about their personal life. They demand a very puritanical standard of behaviour for public figures. Politicians are supposed to keep their public role and private activities strictly separate. Although sex is talked about on TV quite openly nowadays, it is still considered a private matter at a personal level and too embarassing to talk about, which results in the highest rate of teenage pregnancies in Europe.
