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

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
