Another article says: "The effects of climate on the physiology of black women were used to support theories about the sexual promiscuity and fertility of black races, exemplified in the description by J. J Virey, of the 'degree of lascivity unknown in our climate' among black women 'for their sexual organs are much more developed than those of whites.'
