With respect, I think your forgetting any country writes history to their liking, including individual authors, so your information is actually no more true than mine; America is not the only country that does this, if anything we are only following a trend started ages past.
I never said sexual amorality was not around even during the strict periods, but it was squashed and rare; fear is a powerful deterrent, no can deny the power fear has over the masses. I also know full well that post Catholothism and before that Christianity, societies were highly hedonistic. I know this quite well, one reason I mentioned Rome; poster boys/girls of hedonism.
In regards to the boarding schools, I never said they did not exist, but when people go missing someone always says something, and many times they do come to light, its a simple fact. Yes, they do not always come to be exposed to the light, that is true too. But to say I am flat wrong is also not true. Be ware of popularized history, as I noted in the above, not just nations blur the truth, many authors do as well. Its called popularized media, its not a trend America started, I can guarantee you that.
History is something no one, no matter how real they believe it is, can be certain of with 100% accuracy. Especially concerning time periods where writing can be mis-translated and or incomplete; which means this basically includes times even back to the early 1800's, as English let alone other languages was much different than it is today; which inevitably leads to misinterpretation. None of this even includes malicious intentional changing of history to suit a country or individuals needs.
So, with me basically throwing my own arguments into the grinder as well, its basically up to Ark to do as he likes. Thats basically what this was about from the get go, we just provided the ideas.
And Ark, I was not out to debate your idea further, your correct it does add drama and the like, I merely meant to give information which I was not sure if you knew or not.
Also I like the ideas of putting spells on the girls and some such to control them, that would actually be an effective means of control I had not considered, forgetting all about magic actually -chuckles-.
