I read about it as part of the initiation in soeme Papuan New Guinea tribes.


That feature seems to be quite detrimental to group survival, so I would expect evolution to weed it out...

I can't see why it would be detrimental to group society. The scheme was, as I remember that young girls would be initiated by village elders before moving on to their husband to be (much the same a seigneurial rights in Europe) the assumption being that elders being elder had survived the longest and therefore had genes most fitted to survival.
