 The Azande “take a little girl and rub the paste on her vulva and then pinch the eleusine [a riverside shrub dug up and sun-dried in] with it, saying: “You are medicine of eleusine. Eleusine, you expand like a woman’s vulva which, be it ever so small, is sufficient for any man. Eleusine, you expand in the granary like a woman’s vulva. Eleusine, you expand like susu. May not eleusine lessen. Let it be sufficient” (Evans-Pritchard, 1937:p457).

 Among 21 sites studied, in 2 it was said that a majority did it, a few do not; in 7 some do, some don’t, in 4 nobody did, and in one there is insufficient data. In Banko, “some mothers stroke little babies’ penises and make them stiff and laugh at the boys”. At the same time, they did not allow masturbation. In sixteen sites, it was said that everyone gives special attention to genitals when bathing.

Weeks stated: “Above the age of five years it is impossible to find a girl who is a virgin, and it has been difficult to find a word for virgin in the Congo languages”. Also note Weeks (1910:p416) in Upper Congo: “Boys and girls from an early age until puberty have free intercourse with each other, and I believe that later there is no public condemnation if the girls are not betrothed. […] Premenstrual connection is desired by men because they like it, and also because they can indulge freely and there is no palaver, and it is not until the beginning of the periods that girls are guarded from promiscuous intercourse”. See Weeks, J. H. (1910) Anthropological Notes on the Bangala of the Upper Congo River. (Part III), J Royal Anthropol Instit Great Britain & Ireland 40:360-427]. Among the Congo Ba-huana, sexual indulgence is not checked (Torday, E. & Joyce, T. A. (1906) Notes on the ethnography of the Ba-huana, J Anthropol Institut 36:[235 et seq.]).

 Weeks, J. H. (1914) Among the Primitive Bakongo. London: Secley [etc.], p172. Weeks stated: “The unbetrothed girls from an early age up to puberty had free ingress to these houses [adolescent bachelors’ clubs] at night, and their parents encouraged them to go, as it “showed they had proper desires, and later in life they would bear children” ”. Access to the bachelor’s huts is customary for boys aged 12.

 The introduction of the Christian rite of confirmation as an alternative to puberty rites produced an anomaly, since confirmation was not always delayed until puberty was reached. This was said to relax sexual standards, producing a high incidence of young unmarried mothers.

 “The absence of reflection […] on same-sex behavior in what Africans mean by “age sets”—initiation groups and circumcision classes—is particularly unfortunate, given their significance in African societies. Unlike the comparisons [with ancient Greece and Latino and Arab cultures], these are peer groups that are bound, not differentiated, by age. Extended periods of shared rites and experiences often permit same-sex exploration, and sometimes lead to longterm pair bonding”. Brockman, N. C., Africa Today 47(2000),1:153-5
 In Tanzania, young girls not infrequently report having older men or Mshefas (those who provide) as sexual partners (Fuglesang, M. (1997) Lessons for Life - Past and Present Modes of Sexuality Education in Tanzanian Society, Soc Sci & Med 44,8:1245-54).

 Leshabari, M. T. & Kaaya, S. F. (1997) Bridging the information gap: sexual maturity and reproductive health problems among youth in Tanzania, Health Transition Rev, Suppl. 3 to 7:29-44: “ `Sugar daddies' have often been blamed for observed coital relationships between single girls and older men, where financial or material gain for the girls is implied (Lema and Kabeberi-Macharia 1992; Lwihula, Nyamuryekung'e and Hamelmann 1996). However, the `sugar daddy' phenomenon may be too simplistic an explanation for the dynamics of sexual relations in Africa, particularly with respect to the youth population. In a study conducted in Dar es Salaam for example, a large proportion of 200 teenagers with abortion complications, the majority of whom were single, reported their partners to be men above the age of 45 years (Mpangile, Leshabari and Kihwele 1993). Almost 40 per cent of these partners lived in the same poor neighbourhoods as the girls and were not perceived to be better-off financially. Thus financial and material benefit for the girls may not have been the only reason for their relationships with the older men. Often when the `sugar daddy' phenomenon is discussed, a shift from established cultural rules which governed sexual morality and sexual partnership in the African context is implied”.
