INFANT AND CHILD SEXUALITY
 
 
 
 
 





Fellatio

 



When I was eight years old a boy at the age of puberty enlisted my aid in forming a 'club'.... Each meeting had to be brought to order by rubbing the blunt edge of a knife along each other's penis. Following this we engaged in fellatio, for him to orgasm, for me, there was no apparent purpose.


Sodomy


I (eleven years old) had become friendly with a boy five years younger than myself, and soon started thinking of sex. We began by fondling each other's genitals and soon proceeded to playing games involving our sex organs. This relationship went on for a month; we attempted to engage in penal-anal intercourse.


Intercourse


In the following case the girl was eight years old and "not very mature" while her cousin was sixteen and "sort of left with the respon sibility of baby-sitting." The uncommon composure of the parents in the face of an assault on their young daughter is a striking element to this case. He had me undress in his room and he began to fondle me and investigate the various unfamiliar parts of my body. Then he laid me on the bed and he also took off his clothes before lying down on the bed with me. He continued to caress me and soon became quite excited and then he attempted to have intercourse with me, but the pain was too great for me and I began to cry and there was also some bleeding in the vaginal area. I ran to the bathroom and stayed there crying until my parents returned a short time later.


When my parents returned my cousin was hys terical and running around gathering clothes and food in preparation for running away from home. My mother came into the bathroom and talked to me. She spoke quietly and comfortingly, at the same time asking questions about what had hap pened. In the meantime my father was with my cousin talking in the same manner. Then my mother left me and she and my father both talked to my cousin and somehow calmed him down and convinced him that the best thing everyone could do would be to treat the whole occurrence as something very normal.


Sex Instructions


Older girls are a common source of information about menstruation, pregnancy, et cetera for younger girls. The first three cases indicate that they are not always the best sources of sexual information. The last case concerns a boy who does quite an adequate job of informing his younger brother about sexual matters. By the time I reached fourth grade, still not having been told about menstruation by my mother, I was approached by some of the older and more knowledgeable girls who were eager to impress the younger girls with their newly acquired information. They filled me in, with all the lurid details, on the bleeding that women had to go through. It (fourth grade girl being told about menstruation by older girls) sounded perfectly awful and terribly messy.


I (seventh grade girl having been taught 'the facts of life' by older girls) was stunned, bewildered, and awestricken by the repulsiveness, yet the attractiveness with which they spoke of intercourse. I remember once our family was out for a ride and my young brother who was about eight years old at the time, came up with the question, "If babies are in mothers' stomachs, how do they get out?" It seemed like an amusing question at first. Neither of my parents gave him a direct answer. This made me angry that they didn't do so. I tried to explain to him the best I could how it happened so that he'd understand.
