Jumping into Harry Potter Meta|
Oh yes, I didn't mean the actual 1930s or 1950s, just the one presented in books! I grew up reading boarding school stories, mostly published in this era and snaffled from second-hand bookshops, so I have to really think about it before the sexlessness of the stories becomes odd.
But otherwise, yes, the characters really do behave like adolescents, so I have to think that this is all a deliberate, possibly nostalgic, choice. It's not as if YA books leave the sex out any more!

Yes, nostalgic. That's the feel of it.
