I don’t have time to find sources for what I said about peer relationships, sorry. But I do want to clarify that I never meant these relationships were openly lived out in the way that modern homosexual relationships are. It was far more similar to the so-called “swingers” culture of the 1970s. Everybody knew there were swingers, and it was somewhat socially acceptable as a thing to do, but few people would talk about being a swinger in public. At least that is the sense that I’ve gotten from the texts I’ve read.
Now we’re talking about pederasty, whereas I was talking about the passive part being shameful in peer relationships, and, indeed, I specifically had anal sex in mind as the activity in which one partner was “passive”. I absolutely agree that being the boy in a pederastic relationship wasn’t at all shameful.
