Supplement to Marshall Sahlin's Voyage Around the Islands of History (Tahiti 1768, Samoa 1787)

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

    Abstract

    The focus of this contribution¹ is the apparent sexual offers that Polynesian women made to the first Europeans who arrived in Polynesia. If we go back to some journals written during the early voyages, which have still not been studied in as much detail as they deserve, we discover an unexpected aspect of these apparent sexual offers: the “girls’ very young” age and their “weeping.” This leads us toward a hypothesis.
