Edited by D. F. Janssen, Berlin: Magnus Hirschfeld Archive for Sexology (Last revised: Aug 2005)

PREFACE

http://www.sexarchive.info/GESUND/ARCHIV/GUS/PREFACE.HTM

Welcome to the 0.2 edition of “Growing Up Sexually Volume I, World Reference Atlas”!

It contains thousands of footnoted references to practices and attitudes concerned with childhood and early adolescent sexualities worldwide. Approximately 150 countries and over 560 ethnographic communities are covered on separate web pages. The entire corpus is composed of over 900 fully cross-linked pages of ethnographic and historical information on indigenous sex education practices, sexual aspects of initiation rites, and local developmental sexologies. Together with the fulltext 4-volume International Encyclopaedia of Sexuality edited by Robert T. Francoeur (hosted elsewhere on this website), this makes the Magnus Hirschfeld Archive for Sexology an appealing point of departure for any student of the geographies of sexuality.
