Before the middle of the last century,sexuality was looked upon quite differently than nowadays. Namely,women were not supposed to be sexually aware, let alone sleep withwhoever they want to. Rather, sex was something biological and everyother concept of this was considered immoral and filthy, equal tosin. Men were also supposed to have this point of view but, being thedominant parts of societies, they often begged to differ, even thougha large majority followed social rules religiously.
However, with the onset of the 20thcentury and the birth of social revolution, people, especially women,found out about mysterious things like attraction, libido etc. Sexwas presented as something natural and normal, and thus suggested to be practiced as often as possible. This gave rise to the notion ofsexual energy and the importance of sex and sexuality in people'slives. Today, we accept and cherish sex and attraction related to itas one of our basic urges which have a great influence on ourpersonality and life as a whole.
