The American male continues to use her sexually for one thing: a means to the end of his own ejaculation.
It doesn't seem to occur to him that she might be a worthwhile end in herself, or to see to it that she has a proper sexual release.
And, to him, sex appeal is directly proportional to the immensity of a woman's tits. I'm not saying that all American men are this way, but nine out of ten are breast-fixated, wham-bam-thank-you-ma'am cretins who just don't give a damn about anyone's gratification but their own.
