The Inuit are a group of culturally similar people who inhabit the arctic regions of Greenland, Russia, Canada and Alaska. In the US, we call them Eskimos. Eskimos are known for having very open marriages and interesting sexual habits. Keep in mind modern day Eskimos don’t practice these traditions nearly as often. But the facts are still juicy and intriguing so here’s a quick history lesson:
Eskimos participated in what is known as sex hospitality, where a wife or widow would offer herself to a visitor in her home as a form of good etiquette. The wife was free to choose whether she would offer herself; it was not the husband’s decision. Wife exchange also took place as a means of changing the individual’s identity and confusing the evil spirits during a catastrophe. Seed raising was popular, when a father had intercourse with his underage son’s wife and raised the resulting offspring as his own. If a man came into contact with a menstruating woman, that may cause him to drown at see. Multiple wives (and sometimes husbands) was practiced and my very own favorite, the belief of the vagina dentata myth.
