The Sambia: the Semen Ingesting Tribe of Papua New Guinea

The History of Gay Sex

22-02-2022 • 1 hr 1 min

The Sambia tribe of Papua New Guinea practiced a ritualized form of homosexuality as a male rite of passage. Except these rituals heavily surrounded one act: semen ingestion.  The tribe believed that puberty was impossible unless boys started consuming semen at a young age and that mothers could not gestate a child without semen ingestion as well. We cover all of this and more with guest host Mike for this episode!
