“A prude is a person who thinks that his own rules of propriety are natural laws.”

Robert A. Heinlein

Science fiction writer Robert A. Heinlein (born July 7, 1907) wrote Stranger in a Strange Land, which took place on Mars. In that book he coined the word grok, described as a Martian word that means, “to understand so thoroughly that the observer becomes a part of the observed.”
