  4. Polygynous societies that engage in a long postpartum sexual taboo will be positively associated with male segregation at puberty when the factor of living-quarter arrangements is controlled (206)Kitahara, Michio - Polygyny: insufficient father-son contact and son's masculine identity, 1976 - 4 Variables

    The purpose of this article is to examine circumcision and segregation of males at puberty. It is suggested that when the son has insufficient contact with his father due to the separation caused by polygynous relationships, the son may develop a feminine personality. The significance of this is compared with the significance of a close mother-son relationship.

  6. "There is a significant correlation between living quarter arrangements for co-wives in polygynous societies and the frequency of circumcision of males at puberty when the factor of the length of the postpartum sexual taboo is controlled" (10).Kitahara, Michio - Significance of the father for the son's masculine identity, 1975 - 3 Variables

    The significance of the son's insufficient contact with his father during infancy in regard to circumcision and segregation is examined. This article suggests that it is not the long postpartum sexual taboo but the separation of each co-wife that is instrumental in bringing about circumcision and segregation. Expands on Kitahara 1974.

    This study suggests that animals' avoidance of human menstrual odor could be a factor affecting menstrual taboos in societies that depend on hunting. Results indicate a significant, positive relationship between dependence on hunting and menstrual taboos.

  10. Societies in which the mother and son sleep in the same bed and the father sleeps separately in the same hut will be more likely to have male circumcision; societies in which the mother and son sleep separately but in the same hut with the father will be less likely to have male circumsion (279).Kitahara, Michio - Social contact versus bodily contact: a qualitative difference between fathe..., 1978 - 2 Variables

    This article draws on psychoanalytic theory and a previous study by Whiting (1964) to test the relationship between parent-child sleeping arrangements, particularly the implied social distance of fathers, and the presence of circumcision for males. Circumcision is assumed to be a social correction for mother-oriented personality in sons.
