  1. "The extensiveness of menstrual taboos observed in a primitive society is determined to a significant extent by the average intensity of castration anxiety felt by men [measured by frequency of all kinds of physical injury in folktales]" (69, 89)Stephens, William N. - A cross cultural study of menstrual taboos, 1967 - 2 Variables

    This study tests the relationship between menstrual taboos and castration anxiety. The author posits that the extensiveness of menstrual taboos is determined by the average castration anxiety. Using various measures of castration anxiety, the author finds significant support for this hypothesis.

  4. "Extensiveness of menstrual taboos is correlated with intensity of sex anxiety" (94)Stephens, William N. - The oedipus complex: cross-cultural evidence, 1962 - 2 Variables

    The author attempts to test the "Oedipus-complex" hypothesis--the psychoanalytic idea that under certain conditions (such as the long-post partum sex taboo) males are sexually attracted to their mothers and as a consequence certain fears and anxiety are generaated. The hypothesis is tested at the societal-level using ethnographic data.

  5. "If menstrual taboos reflect castration anxiety, we would expect a positive correlation between scores on this composite predictor of castration anxiety and extensiveness of menstrual taboos" (113)Stephens, William N. - The oedipus complex: cross-cultural evidence, 1962 - 2 Variables

    The author attempts to test the "Oedipus-complex" hypothesis--the psychoanalytic idea that under certain conditions (such as the long-post partum sex taboo) males are sexually attracted to their mothers and as a consequence certain fears and anxiety are generaated.
