Africa, Where Masturbation and Homosexuality Do Not Exist

"When sex means reproduction, certain proclivities may simply not be part of cultural models of sexuality."

Barry and Bonnie Hewlett had been studying the Aka and Ngandu people of central Africa for many years before they began to specifically study the groups' sexuality. As they reported in the journal African Study Monographs, the married couple of anthropologists from Washington State University "decided to systematically study sexual behavior after several campfire discussions with married middle-aged Aka men who mentioned in passing that they had sex three or four times during the night. At first [they] thought it was just men telling their stories, but we talked to women and they verified the men's assertions."

In turning to a dedicated study of sex practices, the Hewletts formally confirmed that the campfire stories were no mere fish tales. Married Aka and Ngandu men and women consistently reported having sex multiple times in a single night. But in the process of verifying this, the Hewletts also incidentally found that homosexuality and masturbation appeared to be foreign to both groups.

Aunk's commentary:
This is a remarkable read that I recommend to all my readers. In many African Cultures there is no word for Masturbation and Homosexuality. They think of sex as a kind of night work looking for children. Wow!

Cultural Literacy Minute: When Westerners say something is just "human nature", their own science now indicates that the statement should be corrected to Western nature. We should not confuse social nature, "human nature" and natural law.

This is a good time to remind ourselves of the three major worldviews i.e. the  central worldview (African), the Eastern worldview (Asian) and the Western worldview (Caucasian) in the order of their coming into recorded history. The cosmological orientation and resulting Values, Interests and Principles (VIP's) as Dr. Jeffries points out must be understood if one is to be considered a Culturally Literate global citizen.

To reach reasoned conclusions about man one must have the facts from all three worldviews leaving any worldview out of any fact finding mission by definition calls any resulting conclusions into question.

Living according to natural law seems to work just fine.

Does anyone know the three purposes of Sex?

Classical African Civilization, kemet (Ancient Egypt) had heard of these proclivities and did not support homosexuality as consistent with cosmological law. I do not know their position on masturbation. But I will be sure to keep a sharp eye.

It is interesting to note that when sex functions naturally it is fun healthy and other things do not even come to mind. Most remarkable indeed.
