Are you trying to say "sensual" Tis really a big mith. We are all hot hot hot!!!
I would say sensual is quite a different matter. Surely, any person, from any walk of life can be sensual, but sensual for some is a private matter for others quite public. Not to put words in southern's mouth but I believe he is speaking about emotions displayed in public. Could be wrong but that's how I understood his question.
German history is not very stable.
I said relatively. I would say, that Germany, while often at war, is most often the actor in those disputes, as opposed to being the one acted upon. That is to say, that the Germans have long been the controllers of their own destiny, like the British and the Americans. That would be fair to say, I think.
