embrace." 

 

(2). When a woman in a lonely place bends down, as if to pick up 

something, and pierces, as it were, a man sitting or standing, with her 

breasts, and the man in return takes hold of them, it is called a 

"piercing embrace." 

 

The above two kinds of embrace takes place only between persons who do 

not, as yet, speak freely with each other. 

 

(3). When two lovers are walking slowly together, either in the dark, or 

in a place of public resort, or in a lonely place, and rub their bodies 

against each other, it is called a "rubbing embrace." 

 

(4). When on the above occasion one of them presses the other's body 

forcibly against a wall or pillar, it is called a "pressing embrace." 

 

These two last embraces are peculiar to those who know the intentions of 

each other. 

 

At the time of the meeting the four following kinds of embrace are used, 

viz.: 

 

_Jataveshtitaka_, or the twining of a creeper. 

 

_Vrikshadhirudhaka_, or climbing a tree. 

 

_Tila-Tandulaka_, or the mixture of sesamum seed with rice. 

 

_Kshiraniraka_, or milk and water embrace. 

 

(1). When a woman, clinging to a man as a creeper twines round a tree, 

bends his head down to hers with the desire of kissing him and slightly 

makes the sound of sut sut, embraces him, and looks lovingly towards 

him, it is called an embrace like the "twining of a creeper." 

 

(2). When a woman, having placed one of her feet on the foot of her 

lover, and the other on one of his thighs, passes one of her arms round 

his back, and the other on his shoulders, makes slightly the sounds of 

singing and cooing, and wishes, as it were, to climb up him in order to 

have a kiss, it is called an embrace like the "climbing of a tree." 

 

These two kinds of embrace take place when the lover is standing. 

 

(3). When lovers lie on a bed, and embrace each other so closely that 

the arms and thighs of the one are encircled by the arms and thighs of 

the other, and are, as it were, rubbing up against them, this is called 

an embrace like "the mixture of sesamum seed with rice." 

 

(4). When a man and a woman are very much in love with each other, and 

not thinking of any pain or hurt, embrace each other as if they were 

entering into each other's bodies, either while the woman is sitting on 

the lap of the man or in front of him, or on a bed, then it is called an 

embrace like a "mixture of milk and water." 

 

These two kinds of embrace take place at the time of sexual union.
