Yanni: I was ready to explore the world much closer. The idea of sex in itself was not a mystery to me. My father was very liberal and open. My father had no problem with mild bad language. My mom was a little more uptight than my father, but although she giggled and turned red in the face, she didn't reprimand my dad for talking that way. In Europe, sexuality is much more accepted than in all of America. Which frankly, was a big shock to me when I came to the United States, because in my experience Americans at least on holiday abroad had always seemed so uninhibited.
