  1. A comparative study of deviations from sexual moresBrown, Julia - American Sociological Review, 1952 - 4 Hypotheses

    This article investigates which sexual behaviors are tabued (tabooed) and the frequency and severity of their punishments. Results indicate that incest, abduction, and rape are more frequently tabued, and that frequent tabuing is associated with more severe punishment. Human and supernatural agency in punishment is also examined.
