There are few customs about dating to restrain “hooking up” and, revealing clothing has been taken to its limit, with girls in fact going topless. on the other hand, although everybody is having sex whenever they want, premarital meal-sharing is a big no-no. You’re not supposed to go out for dinner together until after you get married.

  The Nepalese: A community where brothers share a wife – The Himalayas

Polyandrous societies practice what anthropologists call fraternal polyandry, where a group of brothers share a wife.” This is the case in the Himalayas, where there is little land available for farming and agriculture, and families with more than one son would be faced with dividing up their land were each son to start his own family.
The result? locate one wife for all of their sons so that they can live jointly as one family and remain their family plot unbroken. This arrangement works best when the wife is proficient at “scheduling” time with each brother.

In the Wodaabe tribe of Niger in West Africa, men are acknowledged to filch each other’s wives. The Wodaabe’s first marriage is approved by their parents in childhood and must be between cousins of the same ancestry. However, at the yearly Gerewol Festival, Wodaabe men wear elaborate makeup and costumes and dance to astonish the women – and with a bit of luck steal a new wife. If the new couple is able to steal away undetected (especially from a current husband who may not want to part with his wife), then they become socially recognized.

The Sambians: Papua, New Guinea, The semen-drinking tribe

To become a man in this ancient ethnic group, boys are distant from the presence of all females at the age of seven, living with other males for ten years. all through the ten years, the skin is pierced to remove any infectivity brought upon by women. For the same reason, they also regularly incur nose-bleeding and vomiting caused by consuming large amounts of sugarcane. To eliminate it, they are required to swallow the semen of their elders, which is thought to sustain growth and strength. When they are finally introduced back into the tribe, they continue to engage in nose-bleeding at the same time as their wives’ menstrual cycles.

  Ancient Greece: Where homosexuality was completely out of the closet

Greek society did not differentiate sexual desire or behavior by the gender of the participants, but to a certain extent by the role that each participant played in the sex act, that of the active penetrator or the passive penetrated. This active/passive division corresponded with dominant and submissive social roles: the active (penetrative) role was linked with manliness, higher social status, and adulthood, while the passive role was connected with womanliness, lower social status, and youth.
