“Here’s to you, Mr. Robinson”: Men who have sexual relations with male minors

David F. Greenberg

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


    H istorical and comparative studies of sexual relations between same-sex partners in different times and places first appeared more than a hundred years ago (Symonds, 1883, 1891; Carpenter, 1904). The genre continues to attract research and readers (Greenberg, 1988; Murray, 2000; Crompton, 2003; Neill, 2009). This body of work has found that the extent of participation in homosexual relations has been much greater in some societies than others and that the opprobrium visited on participants in the Christian world is not a transhistorical or transcultural universal. Attitudes and social responses have been highly variable.
