the effect of [urethral] sub-incision, assent being given only 

after dismissal to a distance of the women and young children. As 

to the women, it was nearly always observed that when in camp 

without clothing they, especially the younger ones, exhibited by 

their attitude a keen sense of modesty, if, indeed, a 

consciousness of their nakedness can be thus considered. When we 

desired to take a photograph of a group of young women, they were 

very coy at the proposal to remove their scanty garments, and 

retired behind a wall to do so; but once in a state of nudity 

they made no objection to exposure to the camera." (_Report of 

the Horn Scientific Expedition_, 1896, vol. iv, p. 37.) 

 

In Northern Queensland "phallocrypts," or "penis-concealers," 

only used by the males at _corrobborees_ and other public 

rejoicings, are either formed of pearl-shell or opossum-string. 

The _koom-pa-ra_, or opossum-string form of phallocrypt, forms a 

kind of tassel, and is colored red; it is hung from the 

waist-belt in the middle line. In both sexes the privates are 

only covered on special public occasions, or when in close 

proximity to white settlements. (W. Roth, _Ethnological Studies 

among the Northwest-Central-Queensland Aborigines_, 1897, pp. 

114-115.) 

 

"The principle of chastity," said Forster, of his experiences in 

the South Sea Islands in their unspoilt state, "we found in many 

families exceedingly well understood. I have seen many fine women 

who, with a modesty mixed with politeness, refuse the greatest 

and most tempting offers made them by our forward youths; often 

they excuse themselves with a simple _tirra-tano_, 'I am 

married,' and at other times they smiled and declined it with 

_epia_, 'no.' ... Virtuous women hear a joke without emotion, 

which, amongst us, might put some men to the blush. Neither 

austerity and anger, nor joy and ecstasy is the consequence, but 

sometimes a modest, dignified, serene smile spreads itself over 

their face, and seems gently to rebuke the uncouth jester." (J.R. 

Forster, _Observations made During a Voyage Round the World_, 

1728, p. 392.) 

 

Captain Cook, at Tahiti, in 1769, after performing Divine service 

on Sunday, witnessed "Vespers of a very different kind. A young 

man, near six feet high, performed the rites of Venus with a 

little girl about eleven or twelve years of age, before several 

of our people and a great number of the natives, without the 

least sense of its being indecent or improper, but, as it 

appeared, in perfect conformity to the custom of the place. Among 

the spectators were several women of superior rank, who may 

properly be said to have assisted at the ceremony; for they gave 

instructions to the girl how to perform her part, which, young as 

she was, she did not seem much to stand in need of." (J. 

Hawkesworth, _Account of the Voyages_, etc., 1775, vol. i, p. 

469.) 

 

At Tahiti, according to Cook, it was customary to "gratify every 

appetite and passion before witnesses," and it is added, "in the 

conversation of these people, that which is the principal source 

of their pleasure is always the principal topic; everything is 

mentioned without any restraint or emotion, and in the most 

direct terms, by both sexes." (Hawkesworth, op. cit., vol ii, p.
