Sexy ? or Erotic ? - 07-07-2017, 02:49 PM

I had been believing that there is no difference between sexy and erotic.

The other day, Japanese TV show told me "In western culture, sexy is one factor of beauty and erotic is a behavior to temptate another gender".

It is true ?

If it is true, when western girl wears sexy clothes in Japan, Japanese people will misunderstand she is erotic.

Language makes Culture and Culture makes Language.
