However, german girls from the same sample of intelligence are probably as slutty as what I've experienced at my US HS. One thing I did notice though- on the outside they were more prudish than here but I had many things happen to me where I just had to blush (bags with underwear; girls asking me to do very private things to them straightforward; etc.).
Honestly though, I thing this is an issue of social values within a social strato and has little to do with countries.
What stupidity. As if intelligence has anything to do with how sexual someone is. In fact, I'd say that an intelligent woman realizes far better than some bimbo daddy's girl that sex is actually not a big deal, and if it's done safely it's far healthier than drinking. Most guys like to call girls sluts because they're pissed they're not getting any. To me "classy" (a word that in and of itself is an oxymoron), is someone who is cultured but at the same time unique, and interesting. I think the European education system lends itself moreso to that end than we do in America. Frankly, most career women, like 28 year old investment bankers are the most boring, consumeristic, trump wannabe morons in the world. There's nothing classy about this 80s revival you find at B and law schools. To me there's nothing sexy or classy about being engrossed in a meaningless career... if it's your means to an end, great, but I have to disagree that just a woman with an education makes them "classier". And before anyone says that I'm chauvinist, take into account that I despise male Gordon Gekko worshippers too.
