Virgin Frontiers

Three-Tahitians

fr. the journals of John Williams

the first white missionary to reach Samoa

describing the sa`e the concluding

section of the poula or night dance

that the new church would keep

banning for decades:

                           “This scene concludes

by the men approaching the young virgins

& with their tongues perform what

one beast does to another.”

The Pacific Ocean covers 70 million

square miles of the earth’s surface.

One song that was sung in the sa`e

directed:

                        Untie your `ie and throw

                            it into the house

                        Then dance the sa`e naked.

                        When one side of the papaya

                            is golden

                        the whole papaya tastes sweet.

Less than 2% of that area is land.

The virgins have taunted the men for hours.
