The leg transport describes the sexual stimulation of a man by the friction of his penis between the thighs of another person . Thigh intercourse is technically also referred to as femoral intercourse , or in Latin as coitus inter femora or coitus in femoribus , "intercourse between the thighs", from Latin femora (singular femur ) for the "thighs". The term intercruraler or intercruraler intercourse is often used , from inter- for “between” and crura (singular crus ) for the “lower leg”, often also for the whole legs and especially in medicine for other “thighs”.
Thigh intercourse can be a preparatory or integral part of a sexual encounter or serve as a substitute for vaginal or anal coitus.
Thigh intercourse is more often practiced by adolescents and young adults in order to "practice" not to destroy the hymen and to remain virginal and as an unsafe method to avoid getting pregnant, as is anal intercourse less often . The Tubu, a Bantu people, reported in 1937 that the intercourse between the sexes, called Metsha , was practiced from around the age of ten, even if the mothers advise the girls against it. In 1962, it was reported among the Zulus that premarital thigh intercourse - called soma or ukusoma - was not uncommon and allowed until people were converted to Christianity , in contrast to traditional environments, they no longer learned any rules of conduct about sexual relationships and practiced penetrative coitus in sexual relationships . Little is generally reported about heterosexual intercourse between adults. Among prostitutes, there is sometimes the practice of faking penetration ( pushing a trap ), with the hand being helped to complete the illusion.
In Japan Sumata ( Japanese 素股 "naked step", even English. Pussy job ) used because there explicitly Prostitution is illegal with vaginal intercourse. In Sumata, the penis is stimulated by friction with the hips and labia without penetration. The woman sits or crouches on the man.
Thigh intercourse between male children or adolescents has been reported historically and in ethnological reports.
In some past and present cultures there are - in some cases institutionalized - sexual relationships between young boys and older men. Thigh traffic often plays a role. The institution is called mahu in Tahiti , bukhontxana ("wives of the mines") by miners in South Africa , and pederasty by the ancient Greeks . With the latter, thigh intercourse was mostly embedded in a teacher education, and it is assumed that mostly thigh intercourse was practiced, which was more honorable for Eromenos , since he was not penetrated like a woman. In contrast to anal intercourse, it is also shown pictorially on antique vases.
Thigh intercourse is also practiced among men. Since anal intercourse among men was frowned upon or forbidden in the three Abrahamic religions , thigh intercourse was a less bad alternative. It was partially allowed and if not, there were often much shorter penalties or penalties. Furthermore, in the past it was seen by some strict Muslim scholars as only a slight sin. In 1631 Mervyn Tuchet, 2nd Earl of Castlehaven, was beheaded, although he only had thigh intercourse, but this was not the rule at the English courts.
Pederasty predominant pictorial representation in ancient Greece
Two motifs are particularly common in the pictorial representations of pederasty . In addition to the so-called top-bottom position of courtship, the other motif relates to the fulfillment of the relationship, whereby almost exclusively thigh intercourse is depicted in a specific way: The Erastes embraces the boy's hip, lays his head on or under the shoulder and pushes his penis between the thighs of Eromenus. This stands upright and always appears unaffected. His body corresponds to the Greek ideal of beauty: athletically built with quite large buttocks and large thighs and a rather small penis.
Legal classification in Germany
In Germany , under Section 175 StGB, thigh intercourse between men was punishable for a long time as "unnatural fornication" (also an act similar to sexual intercourse), but it was hardly possible to provide evidence, especially if the intercourse was consensual. In 1935, Section 175 of the Criminal Code was tightened by replacing the term “unnatural fornication” with “fornication”, which in this case was already given by naked bodies huddling together and making the previously compulsory evidence of sexual intercourse obsolete . Section 175 of the Criminal Code was only toned down in 1969 and 1973 and finally abolished in 1994.
