Data Dog, you mention stroking of genitals. My mother-in-law once said that this was one method used to put young children to sleep. Then, surprise! My grown son informs me that he was molested as a child. He wouldn't say by whom, but I think I can put 2 and 2 together.
Was this actually in print? I thought my MIL had simply brought some European thing to the conversation. She's dead now or I would ask her.
