I am a Mangaian from Tamarua Village and completely against this false facts. I have never in my life or grown up heard of this nonsense. A big disgrace for whoever made this up or falsely supplied this information. Being a proud Cook Islander I'm disgusted, my family and ancestors never practiced or encouraged this.

Don't worry. This is written by Americans who have very weird ideas about everybody else and more sexual hang-ups than of the rest of the world put together! (The preceding unsigned comment was added by 82.64.93.14 (talkcontribs) 19 November 2015‎)

This all comes from a textbook called "Understanding Human Sexuality" (Sixth Canadian Edition) on page 10. This is almost word for word. --134.87.132.52 (discuss) 18:40, 25 January 2016 (UTC)

The descriptions given here are based on the observations of anthropologists from nearly a half century ago. --mikeu talk 18:31, 27 January 2016 (UTC)

Check out https://books.google.com/books?hl=en&lr=&id=H4qQPfYEWNQC&oi=fnd&pg=PA95#v=onepage&q&f=false. At page 108, Harris discusses the description of Mangai sexual prowess, and discovers that the description on this page may have originated from a group of drunk friends bragging to the anthropologist. This page is quoting a passage using a source, Harris, that directly contradicts the meaning of that passage later on. --Silver202 (discusscontribs) 15:33, 5 September 2016 (UTC)
