Sex Crime: Like usury, sex defied doctrinal certitude, except for the agreed upon principle that any sexual practices contrary to the arrangements and ends “ordained by nature” was sinful. The covering term was sodomy, which meant not only homosexuality but any use, with the same or opposite sex, of the “unfit” orifice or the “unfit” position, or spilling the seed according to the sin of Onan, or auto erotic emission, or intercourse with beasts. All were sodomy, which, by perverting nature, was rebellion against God and therefore counted as the “worst of sins” in the category of lechery.
Whoever fornicates with an effeminate male or with another man or with an animal must fast for 10 years. Elsewhere it says that whoever fornicates with an animal must fast 15 years and sodomites must fast for 7 years….
If he defiles himself (masturbates), he is to abstain from meat for four days. He who desires to fornicate (with) himself (i.e., to masturbate) and is not able to do so, he must fast for 40 days or 20 days. If he is a boy and does it often, either he is to fast 20 days or one is to whip him….
Whoever ejaculates seed into the mouth, that is the worst evil. From someone it was judged that they repent this up to the end of their lives.
While it was permitted to have sex with your spouse, only one type of position – the Missionary – was allowed, on the basis that this provided the least pleasure for the couple.
Penitentials gradually fell out of favour during the Middle Ages, and were rarely produced after the twelfth century.
Thomas Aquinas makes the memorable and terrible statement that ‘the victim of forcible seduction, if she is not wed by the seducer, will find it more difficult to marry. She may be led to give herself to debauchery, from which her modesty, intact up to then, had kept her.’ These women tricked into providing momentary pleasure and mocked by all the males about provided pitiful figures for bawdy tales. In the 13th and 14th centuries, secular and ecclesiastical morality seemed in total agreement on the need to punish female adultery severely, since it was held to be a public crime. The most humiliating strictures remained on the books and were on occasion applied: running the town and public flogging occurred in Ales, Villeneuve lez Avignon and Manosque. In salon de Provence, those who had knowledge of a case of adultery and who failed to report it risked heavy fines.
All the sex related crimes are enumerated here: Saignet denounces those who spill their seed on stone and not in the earth (coitus interruptus? Masturbation?); those who make the woman used abortifacients (submergunt); others who neither irrigate nor cultivate the seeded earth, but abandon the land to birds (fornicators who make use of common prostitutes, the birds being the other lovers); others who neglect to harvest or who harvest too soon (abortion) or who burn the grain (infanticide?); others who do not bother to take in the harvest of ripe grain (who abandon the mother and child?); others who throw out the grain shaken from the stalk (infanticide? Masturbation?); others who leave their grain in a putrid granary and thus spoil it (sodomites); others who store their grain but fail to make flour of it, and even less, good bread (who fail to supervise the upbringing of their offspring).
