Other unmarried youths in both town and country ritualized their conduct, but more often it was through sexual violence. Even in the villages of the valleys of the Ariege such as Montaillou, girls ran high risks, and in the smaller cities of Haute-Provence in the early 14th century studied by R. Lavoye, rape accounted for 25 per cent of sex-related cases brought before the courts. In urban centres during the 14th century the behavior of males was not very different from that of the young men of Dijon in the 15th century or the boisterous ‘hunting parties’ in Venice described by Elisabeth Pavan. Gang rape committed by youths goes practically unpunished. 
Furthermore, habits contracted in adolescence were not easily shaken off: ‘Even in marriage, young people commit many nasty excesses.’ Gerson advises confessors to put the same questions to older men and women. He accuses masturbation (according to Jean Louis Flandrin, on this point Gerson once again agrees with modern sexologists) of encouraging other sorts of abnormal behavior: ‘And he who becomes accustomed to it and is obstinate in it, the devil lightly makes him stumble into several other villanous and terrible sins, which no one should name or write.’
If men of the late 14th century trembled as they caressed the whores, as Georges Duby has said, their grandsons in the 1450s had a steadier hand. Young working men in Lyons, Burgundy or Provence tell us that they go to the bordello ‘to have a good time’; they do so because ‘nature moves them’ or ‘nature impels them’.
