excite her, partly from his small penis, partly from his rapidity of 

emission; the black man, on account of his blunter nervous system, takes 

three times as long to reach emission as the white man. Among the 

Mohammedan peoples of West Africa, Daniell remarks, as well as in central 

and northern Africa, it is usual to suckle a child for two or more years. 

From the time when pregnancy becomes apparent to the end of weaning no 

intercourse takes place. It is believed that this would greatly endanger 

the infant, if not destroy it. This means that for every child the woman, 

at all events, must remain continent for about three years.[213] Sir H.H. 

Johnston, writing concerning the peoples of central Africa, remarks that 

the man also must remain chaste during these periods. Thus, among the 

Atonga the wife leaves her husband at the sixth month of pregnancy, and 

does not resume relations with him until five or six months after the 

birth of the child. If, in the interval, he has relations with any other 

woman, it is believed his wife will certainly die. "The negro is very 

rarely vicious," Johnston says, "after he has attained to the age of 

puberty. He is only more or less uxorious. The children are vicious, as 

they are among most races of mankind, the boys outrageously so. As regards 

the little girls over nearly the whole of British Central Africa, chastity 

before puberty is an unknown condition, except perhaps among the A-nyanja. 

Before a girl is become a woman it is a matter of absolute indifference 

what she does, and scarcely any girl remains a virgin after about 5 years 

of age."[214] Among the Bangala of the upper Congo a woman suckles her 

child for six to eighteen months and during all this period the husband 

has no intercourse with his wife, for that, it is believed, would kill the 

child.[215] 

 

Among the Yoruba-speaking people of West Africa A.B. Ellis mentions that 

suckling lasts for three years, during the whole of which period the wife 

must not cohabit with her husband.[216] 

 

Although chastity before marriage appears to be, as a rule, little 

regarded in Africa, this is not always so. In some parts of West Africa, a 

girl, at all events if of high birth, when found guilty of unchastity may 

be punished by the insertion into her vagina of bird pepper, a kind of 

capsicum, beaten into a mass; this produces intense pain and such acute 

inflammation that the canal may even be obliterated.[217] 

 

Among the Dahomey women there is no coitus during pregnancy nor during 

suckling, which lasts for nearly three years. The same is true among the 

Jekris and other tribes on the Niger, where it is believed that the milk 

would suffer if intercourse took place during lactation.[218] 

 

In another part of Africa, among the Suaheli, even after marriage only 

incomplete coitus is at first allowed and there is no intercourse for a 

year after the child's birth.[219] 

 

Farther south, among the Ba Wenda of north Transvaal, says the Rev. R. 

Wessmann, although the young men are permitted to "play" with the young 

girls before marriage, no sexual intercourse is allowed. If it is seen 

that a girl's labia are apart when she sits down on a stone, she is 

scolded, or even punished, as guilty of having had intercourse.[220] 

 

Among the higher races in India the sexual instinct is very developed, and 

sexual intercourse has been cultivated as an art, perhaps more elaborately 

than anywhere else. Here, however, we are far removed from primitive 

conditions and among a people closely allied to the Europeans. Farther to 

the east, as among the Cambodians, strict chastity seems to prevail, and 

if we cross the Himalayas to the north we find ourselves among wild people 

to whom sexual license is unknown. Thus, among the Turcomans, even a few 

days after the marriage has been celebrated, the young couple are 

separated for an entire year.[221] 

 

All the great organized religions have seized on this value of sexual
