Ilaria Perrone, sex columnist for Grazia.it, the go-to magazine for the “It” girls of Milan, has given up on dating. But if you want to see him again, you have to wait. I know in New York you do the other things first, then sex after, but here we think blow jobs are more private than sex.“Italian men are romantic but they are also liars,” she told New York sex columnist Maureen O’Connor in the latest entry in Italy in 30 Days’ Exchange Rates conversation series. ” And don’t even get her started on the shortage of cunnilingus slang. It can be very difficult, because in Italy men date because they want to have sex. If you go with a boy in Milan, you know 90 percent of the time, you will be with him that night. I used to talk with friends who lived in USA, and they tell me, “We go on real dates. You can have sex with a condom on a first date, but oral sex is more complicated. When you live with your parents, when you live with the Pope and the church, it’s difficult to change your mind so quickly. In this country, men can do whatever they want because they are men, they are like this, they need sex, they need affairs. K., girls use Tinder, so here in Milan they get dates with Italian men that way. In Italy it is totally different, we have sex first.I think we are now changing ages, but men have had the most change.

This may also be what makes Italian men so self-assured when approaching foreign women.Skyping from Milan, Perrone explained the hazards of dick-centric dating and swearing. I meet him on Tinder and we go out to dinner.” And the men would say, “The American girls are so free! If those women never give oral sex, do they still receive it? But it doesn’t have its own word, I think because it’s taboo. I think there are two kinds of men, one that thinks this is not macho and doesn’t like it, and one that really likes it. Italy had protest and revolutions in the ‘60s, just as they did in the USA and U. Particularly in the south, you would hear people say about Berlusconi, “He had a lot of women and that’s good! I have friends who tell me it’s not so easy to get Italian girls to go on dates with Tinder; they have to be pushed.

I apologise to my male readers, this is dating from a girl’s perspective, however, at least it may give you an idea of what you’re competing with when you’re trying to woo a local girl.
As a foreign girl in Rome it’s not hard to get a date, in fact, the real art is in choosing your company with discernment.
In fact, calling this a ‘fantasy’ degrades what is, in my opinion, a brilliant and feasible plan for your time here in Italy. Have fun discovering the answer to this question for yourself.
But to help you in your Roman courtships, I thought I’d share a few personal experiences that perhaps you can learn from.
