VENEZUELA / República
When Afro-Venezuelan children get older, girls and boys are
segregated; then the father may develop some pedagogic interest in his sons,
who are taught the values of the macho world, while the girls remain under
the influence of their mother. The transition from childhood to
adulthood takes place “very quickly” and is not marked by initiation rites.
Havelock Ellis cites Ernst in the observation of early
masturbation among Spanish creoles.
