Sorry, no etymologies found.
Edmond de Goncourt, who found 'ce Jordaens moderne' too vulgar for his taste, his nudes 'untrue,' and who after attending a joint private view in 1867 of Courbet's tribadic Le Sommeil and Ingres's Bain antique (both painted for Khalil Bey) dismissed the two painters as idiots populaires, was won round by The Origin of the World.
Africanus in the same century mentioned the tribadism of Moorish women and the formal organization of tribadic prostitution in Fez.
