CONCLUDING REMARKS

hunting, the love of drinking, the love of gambling, etc., etc. 

 

(2). Love which is felt for things to which we are not habituated, and 

which proceeds entirely from ideas, is called love resulting from 

imagination, as for instance, that love which some men and women and 

eunuchs feel for the Auparishtaka or mouth congress, and that which is 

felt by all for such things as embracing, kissing, etc., etc. 

 

(3). The love which is mutual on both sides, and proved to be true, when 

each looks upon the other as his or her very own, such is called love 

resulting from belief by the learned. 

 

(4). The love resulting from the perception of eternal objects is quite 

evident and well-known to the world, because the pleasure which it 

affords is superior to the pleasure of the other kinds of love, which 

exists only for its sake. 

 

What has been said in this chapter upon the subject of sexual union is 

sufficient for the learned; but for the edification of the ignorant, the 

same will now be treated of at length and in detail. 

 

FOOTNOTES: 

 

[Footnote 33: High unions are said to be better than low ones, for in 

the former it is possible for the male to satisfy his own passion 

without injuring the female, while in the latter it is difficult for the 

female to be satisfied by any means.] 

 

[Footnote 34: The strength of passion with women varies a great deal, 

some being easily satisfied, and others eager and willing to go on for a 

long time. To satisfy these last thoroughly a man must have recourse to 

art. It is certain that a fluid flows from the woman in larger or 

smaller quantities, but her satisfaction is not complete until she has 

experienced the "spasme genesique," as described in a French work 

recently published and called "Breviare de l'Amour Experimental par le 

Dr. Jules Guyot."] 

 

[Footnote 35: This is a long dissertation very common among Sanscrit 

authors, both when writing and talking socially. They start certain 

propositions, and then argue for and against them. What it is presumed 

the author means, is, that though both men and women derive pleasure 

from the act of coition, the way it is produced is brought about by 

different means, each individual performing his own work in the matter, 

irrespective of the other, and each deriving individually their own 

consciousness of pleasure from the act they perform. There is a 

difference in the work that each does, and a difference in the 

consciousness of pleasure that each has, but no difference in the
