Opler (1963:p146-7): “Before puberty […] sex play and sex interest were sternly discouraged”. This is predominantly avoidance of sibling incest; however: “Immature boys and girls were openly warned against sexual intimacy even with non-relatives on the grounds that illness resulted from premature sexual relations. […] Between relatives of the same sex, however, a great deal of good-natured salicious banter occurred, usually directed toward younger relatives in conformity to the one-way respect attitudes of the Ute”.
