pretty much every politician :-( Believe it or not, at the opposite of all the stereotypes, French people are much more about love than sex.
Sex is not taboo in France as it is in the US, and it is much more present in humor, art, tv and everyday life than in the US…
If sex between consenting adults is very much socially accepted, most French people won’t rush into it, and get to know each other before jumping into bed.
In France, it’s very common for a girl to go out to dinner with a male friend.
Even for a married woman to go out with a male friend who is single: I often travel to Paris by myself, Leyla and Olivier stay in Paimpol, and have dinner with one (or several) of our good male friend(s), single or not.

And if you like this article, you’ll probably enjoy my “French women beauty secrets” article.
and so is nudity: children are often naked on the beach, women can go topless (although it’s less frequent now than when I was young)… I wrote an article about French Sex Vocabulary if you are curious – watch out, it is explicit and written for an adult audience.
Many of my French friends – men and women alike – have waited to meet someone special for their first time, didn’t just want to get rid of their virginity, and have never had one night stand.
I guess since there is no set protocol, French women are pretty obvious, and often more direct than other women. It’s unlikely they’ll refuse to take it further, but not unheard of.
