A man is called a man of small passion whose desire at the time of 

sexual union is not great, whose semen is scanty, and who cannot bear 

the warm embraces of the female. 

 

Those who differ from this temperament are called men of middling 

passion, while those of intense passion are full of desire. 

 

In the same way, women are supposed to have the three degrees of feeling 

as specified above. 

 

Lastly, according to time there are three kinds of men and women, viz., 

the short-timed, the moderate-timed, and the long-timed, and of these as 

in the previous statements, there are nine kinds of union. 

 

But on this last head there is a difference of opinion about the female, 

which should be stated. 

 

Auddalika says, "Females do not emit as males do. The males simply 

remove their desire, while the females, from their consciousness of 

desire, feel a certain kind of pleasure, which gives them satisfaction, 

but it is impossible for them to tell you what kind of pleasure they 

feel. The fact from which this becomes evident is, that males, when 

engaged in coition, cease of themselves after emission, and are 

satisfied, but it is not so with females." 

 

This opinion is, however, objected to on the grounds that if a male be a 

long-timed, the female loves him the more, but if he be short-timed, she 

is dissatisfied with him. And this circumstance, some say, would prove 

that the female emits also. 

 

But this opinion does not hold good, for if it takes a long time to 

allay a woman's desire, and during this time she is enjoying great 

pleasure, it is quite natural then that she should wish for its 

continuation. And on this subject there is a verse as follows: 

 

"By union with men the lust, desire, or passion of women is satisfied, 

and the pleasure derived from the consciousness of it is called their 

satisfaction." 

 

The followers of Babhravya, however, say that the semen of women 

continues to fall from the beginning of the sexual union to its end, and
