OLIVOS (Spain)


Price and Price (1966a,b)[1] describe that courtship among the Olivos, a traditional pueblo, is staged in three compartments, the middle with two subcompartments: informal, transitional, and formal. The first begins with puberty, when brothers and sisters no longer share a room.


A later study on Andalusian young people (Olive, Serra and Vallejo, 1993)[2] offers data on masturbarche and sources of sexual education.
