By 1947 around 70,000 British war brides had arrived in the US to be with their husbands, and in Canada the figure of arriving brides was around 16,000. Of course a lot of sex takes place during wartime even without trinkets and favors from post exchanges, and in Picadilly Circus in London, standup sex with prostitutes and Americans went on all night once the bars closed, so they say. I was never there. And we sailors from Liberty ships never had a post exchange to furnish us with ammo for love making. The best summation I've seen is: The Americans were a breath of fresh air to British women.
