How prevalent is the Machismo attitude in Brazil?  Do Brazilian men tolerate their women flirting with others?

Machismo and Feminismo are very much alive and well in Brazil, nevertheless, flirting has been elevated to an art form...  

Brazilian menīs attitude depends a lot on the object of their partnerīs flirtation.  They surely wouldnīt object to their women flirting with other women... when it comes to their women flirting with other men... the reaction can range from a tolerant shoulder shrug (very rare) to the decapitation of the other guy (more common).

On Machismo scale, I would place Brazil far ahead of the emasculated United States, but just as far behind of other testosteron-drenched overcompensating Latin American Cultures.

Machismo varies greatly from North to South, I think in the Southeast and big cities Machismo is lighter than the other places.
