This article offers a broad perspective on child and adolescent behaviors, which are seen by different Western definitions as associated with sexual/erotic implications. This article also demonstrates that basic definitions or meanings that many modern Western societies consider important are viewed as unimportant in other societies. Topics such as masturbation, child-adult sexual activities or cross-generational marriages, same-sex activities, and sexual indoctrination are viewed differently among many groups.”

    Seems as if an individual who is not associated with an institution or university, and who is not a professional, cannot request the full article and is thus restricted to the abstract.

      This is something I also notice, far too often…

      I cant guarantee anything…but we could search some of the more “information wants to be free” type websites.

      As I said a tiny bit earlier in this series…I find it kind of scummy, that anyone makes a profiteering venture out of this type of content.

      I also find it crazy, that anyone would need to have rare connections, just to access this sort of thing.

      This is only the first of a number I am about to share. They might be able to be found elsewhere, for free.

      Quite slick, really.

      To be clear…I don’t know if these kinds of websites are, strictly speaking, legal…though it’s probably not that likely anyone would get into legal trouble, for merely accessing what the website owner has made available [research studies]…Normal legal practices are to charge/sue the publishing website owner…Some such owners live in jurisdictions, which don’t care about copyright laws…especially those of other countries.
