The Yanomami, discovered around 1630 by the Spanish in the Amazon jungle, suffice a simple lumbar cord without apron as clothing. However, the penis is tied up with a loop around the foreskin to the lumbar cord. Only in this state, the men feel properly "clothed" – otherwise they feel deeply ashamed when seen with the penis hanging freely.
