Nbsp Most will meet new people. Yet, this scenario illustrates a larger paradox in Senegalese society.

Young people in Senegal are all about America. While they might disprove of Americans, American politics, and American global attitudes, American music, American clothing, and American movies are prevailingly popular. The issue is that stereotypically modern American culture comes with a lot of sexuality. American movies are sexual, American songs are sexual, Americans dress fairly provocatively, etc. However, despite how much these cultural elements are embraced in Senegal, the overwhelmingly Muslim population will very clearly and definitively tell you that they do not approve of promiscuity, marriage without the purpose of having children, or homosexuality.

A good analogy is the acceptable dress code for women in Senegal; despite such a strong presence of Islam, the veil is not prevailingly common. Women wear both traditionally styled long wrap skirts, but also jeans.

They saw this as morally flawed. However, they said that if the couple had wanted to conduct such behavior in the same location, later on in the evening once all the children had gone, or even inside a private hotel room, that would have been acceptable. I find this attitude very confusing, as an American for whom sexuality and promiscuity is somehow linked with alcohol, considering that these same boys will go out to a club, dance very sexually until all hours of the night, while all the time sipping on some apple juice, because, under Islam, one is not supposed to drink.
