: He might feel very insecure because he's
: wearing something he's not accustomed to?
in the "boy scouts" there was ceremony of passage at some summer camps, for earning a merit badge for primitive camping techniques,,,and studying local indian tribes such as the huron......
everyone wore loincloths.moccasins, and war paint... it was a proof of your being part of the tribe when you were painted,,,and named as a warrior...certainly made the event exotic,,and a different culture twist...so the boys becoming warriors felt the growth into manhood...
some tribes nited the transition from boy... when they were naked,,,and then as they matured the loincloth siganl maturity, growth and man hood....
of course our modern american society still has many taboos,and severe discomfort with viewing male bodies naked or in loincloths.... fear of ? what
accepting,and enjoying the body was part of ancient cultures
