Talk:Research: Intergenerational Relationships in History
I remember someone saying that Rind knows about this. If it's that important, he's still answering firstname.lastname@example.org. The Admins 00:15, 16 February 2009 (UTC)
Not sure where this fits
- Haeberle, Erwin J. (1983). The Sex Atlas. The Continuum Publishing Company.
- "As mentioned earlier, our Western civilization has not always believed that children should be protected from all sexual contact. In medieval Europe, children were still freely touched, caressed, and fondled by every member of the household. Particularly in rural areas, parents, nurses, or servants were accustomed to masturbating small children to please them or to keep them quiet. (This practice is also found in many non-European societies. In the United States today, it is still alive among the Hopi Indians.)"

- "Visionaries cite anthropological findings on primitive tribes such as the Pukapukas, Trukese, and Lesu, where all household members sleep in the same room so that children normally observe adult sexual activi- ties (Ford & Beach, 1951). They point out that among the Hopi, Siriono, Kazak, and Alorese, as well as in Western cultures as late as Medieval times in Europe, children were openly touched, caressed, and sexually fondled by all members of the household. Even in recent Western history, particularly in rural areas, parents, nurses, or servants have masturbated small children to please and quiet them (Haeberle, 1978)." http://www.ipce.info/ipceweb/Library/nelson.htm The Admins 13:34, 17 July 2009 (UTC)
