Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document In this article G. N. Appell discusses the relationship between sex and aggression among the Rungus. According to Appell sex and aggression are sharply segregated. Rape is rare, almost non-existent. There are strict prohibitions against sex outside of marriage and within marriage sex is an act of mutual consent. There are few metaphors that describe sexual acts in terms of aggression. Appell attributes this absence of sexual aggression to the relative gender equality in Rungus society and the supernatural sanctions against aggressive behavior, in general.
