Google Ah, American society and sex. For the number one producer of pornography, American society sure doesn't tolerate sex. We already have Steve Jobs going the 'think-of-the-children' route, and now it seems Google has similar problems - Google is banning so-called "cougar" dating sites from advertising via its network, while on the other hand, it does not have a problem with ads where older men can seek younger women. Hypocrisy, thy name is society.

A majority of people in the United States see things differently, and have a lot of trouble openly dealing with sexuality; 'nipple-gate' really confirmed that one. As such, American companies know how to score big bags of brownie-points by taking a stance against anything even remotely related to sex; the well-known 'think-of-the-children!' approach.

Not a majority, but as another said, a vocal, rich, majority. Money is what makes the rules sadly, and nothing else. Now granted I live in the "bible belt" area of the US, where there are more churches than people. These areas are a minority in the US. I moved here for work, and still can't believe how backwards a good chunk of these people are.
