Morality in Indonesia is just like a fresh, crystal lake in the middle of Sahara desert...at least big towns are probably the places and people with less morality I have ever seen in 54+ countries so far...it looks like it is a big honour and advertising for their culture....
also in the guesthouse where I usually go, all the staff was asking me, everytime I was going out or coming back: "are you going to fuck some girls?" "did you fuck some girls today?"
Sometimes I wonder if they are really aware that this is not the best way to promote their culture. But it seems they like it so much, they know all the foreigners like it too and in general everybody is happy with that. Indonesians are very funny, happy and easy going people: being a culture fully immersed in casual and hyperactive sex seems really playing a big role in their culture, and they feel absolutely no shame or guilt or sense of sin in it. Of course with dramatic cons: hiv, abortions, rape violence, divorces, child mothers and in general marriages which are just simply coverages in front of the society.
Personally, I found it being too much excessive. Completely without any limit, without any limiy at all.
You can talk with people, you can say "yes, indonesians are very pretty"...they just look at one girl passing, they call her: "hey, this foreigner says that he loves indonesian girls, come here, fuck with him"....and they come, and surprisingly most of times they start talking and being serious about it....they really think i (or them) were serious about it....it's like they don't even have a slight idea of the meaning of "random and casual sex" and its consequencies.
One of the most popular drinks in Indonesia - and among indonesian immigrants in Malaysia is Jamu, a sort of drink made with herbs...it may have different purposes: one variant is working just like viagra. They drink it several times per day because, as one of my best indonesian friends said "it's always time to have sex...whenever you want you must be ready"....
and they are proud to say "we have the easiest women in the world and the horniest ones"... I talked with hundred of people, females, men, old, young, riches and poors, traditionals and modern, downtown and in suburbs, and at one point (quite soon) the question they ALL made to me was always one only: "do you wanna have sex with me?"
you should go to Jakarta or Bandung or Jogjakarta to see how sex occupies 99% of their daily thoughts (and practices)....may like it or not. I don't, to be honest. There is no limit, overthere. Absolutely no limits.
Maybe in countryside is a little bit different. But in town....funny people but absolutely with zero limit of sexual boundaries and even less morality.
And religion: officially 99% of indonesians are muslim. Officially. But in Jawa I saw a lot of black magic rites and animistic rites, they still believe in black magic and most of marriages are forced through threats of black magic (unfortunately this story involves my personal story with a girl that I liked so much, too....) and...well, islam is in huge areas of Indonesia just a coverage. People will never refuse to believe in their original traditions, their spirits, ghosts and devils. They are muslim because somebody told them to be muslim, but in their heart they still believe in the ancient rituals. And not only a few part of the population.
Strange, strange people indeed. Probably among the most "naive", pure, innocent and instinctive people you can ever find on the face of earth
