This being that men are encouraged to partake in sexual relations with multiple different partners, while females are discouraged from having coitus outside of marriage, and are even sometimes shunned. It is a phenomenon worldwide how people from complete different areas of the world can still follow the same protocols for sexual intercourse, without even being in the same realm.
