Both narratological and anthropological tools are utilized in the textual analysis. Stone interestingly notes the link between sexual activity, gender and prestige structures- the emphasis on male contest and female chastity discussed by anthropologists of honour and shame- and the role of the exchange of women in relations between men.

In each story, sexual practice is primarily related to male struggles for honour and power.
