"I have observed," Captain Cook wrote, "that our friends in the 

South Seas have not even the idea of indecency, with respect to 

any object or any action, but this was by no means the case with 

the inhabitants of New Zealand, in whose carriage and 

conversation there was as much modest reserve and decorum with 

respect to actions, which yet in their opinion were not criminal, 

as are to be found among the politest people in Europe. The women 

were not impregnable; but the terms and manner of compliance were 

as decent as those in marriage among us, and according to their 

notions, the agreement was as innocent. When any of our people 

made an overture to any of their young women, he was given to 

understand that the consent of her friends was necessary, and by 

the influence of a proper present it was generally obtained; but 

when these preliminaries were settled, it was also necessary to 

treat the wife for a night with the same delicacy that is here 

required by the wife for life, and the lover who presumed to take 

any liberties by which this was violated, was sure to be 

disappointed." (Hawkesworth, op. cit., vol. ii, p. 254.) 

 

Cook found that the people of New Zealand "bring the prepuce over 

the gland, and to prevent it from being drawn back by contraction 

of the part, they tie the string which hangs from the girdle 

round the end of it. The glans, indeed, seemed to be the only 

part of their body which they were solicitous to conceal, for 

they frequently threw off all their dress but the belt and 

string, with the most careless indifference, but showed manifest 

signs of confusion when, to gratify our curiosity, they were 

requested to untie the string, and never consented but with the 

utmost reluctance and shame.... The women's lower garment was 

always bound fast round them, except when they went into the 

water to catch lobsters, and then they took great care not to be 

seen by the men. We surprised several of them at this employment, 

and the chaste Diana, with her nymphs, could not have discovered 

more confusion and distress at the sight of Actaeon, than these 

women expressed upon our approach. Some of them hid themselves 

among the rocks, and the rest crouched down in the sea till they 

had made themselves a girdle and apron of such weeds as they 

could find, and when they came out, even with this veil, we could 

see that their modesty suffered much pain by our presence." 

(Hawkesworth, op. cit., vol. ii, pp. 257-258.) 

 

In Rotuma, in Polynesia, where the women enjoy much freedom, but 

where, at all events in old days, married people were, as a rule, 

faithful to each other, "the language is not chaste according to 

our ideas, and there is a great deal of freedom in speaking of 

immoral vices. In this connection a man and his wife will speak 

freely to one another before their friends. I am informed, 

though, by European traders well conversant with the language, 

that there are grades of language, and that certain coarse 

phrases would never be used to any decent woman; so that 

probably, in their way, they have much modesty, only we cannot 

appreciate it." (J. Stanley Gardiner, "The Natives of Rotuma," 

_Journal of the Anthropological Institute_, May, 1898, p. 481.)
