CONCLUDING REMARKS

above may also be made with the nails, for the ancient authors say, 

that as there are innumerable degrees of skill among men (the practice 

of this art being known to all), so there are innumerable ways of making 

these marks. And as pressing or marking with the nails is independent of 

love, no one can say with certainty how many different kinds of marks 

with the nails do actually exist. The reason of this is, Vatsyayana 

says, that as variety is necessary in love, so love is to be produced by 

means of variety. It is on this account that courtezans, who are well 

acquainted with various ways and means, become so desirable, for if 

variety is sought in all the arts and amusements, such as archery and 

others, how much more should it be sought after in the present case. 

 

The marks of the nails should not be made on married women, but 

particular kinds of marks may be made on their private parts for the 

remembrance and increase of love. 

 

There are also some verses on the subject, as follows: 

 

"The love of a woman who sees the marks of nails on the private parts of 

her body, even though they are old and almost worn out, becomes again 

fresh and new. If there be no marks of nails to remind a person of the 

passages of love, then love is lessened in the same way as when no union 

takes place for a long time." 

 

Even when a stranger sees at a distance a young woman with the marks of 

nails on her breast,[37] he is filled with love and respect for her. 

 

A man, also, who carries the marks of nails and teeth on some parts of 

his body, influences the mind of a woman, even though it be ever so 

firm. In short, nothing tends to increase love so much as the effects of 

marking with the nails, and biting. 

 

FOOTNOTE: 

 

[Footnote 37: From this it would appear that in ancient times the 

breasts of women were not covered, and this is seen in the painting of 

the Ajunta and other caves, where we find that the breasts of even royal 

ladies and others are exposed.] 

 

CHAPTER V. 

 

ON BITING, AND THE MEANS TO BE EMPLOYED WITH REGARD TO WOMEN OF 

DIFFERENT COUNTRIES. 

 

 

All the places that can be kissed, are also the places that can be 

bitten, except the upper lip, the interior of the mouth, and the eyes. 

 

The qualities of good teeth are as follows: They should be equal, 

possessed of a pleasing brightness, capable of being coloured, of proper 

proportions, unbroken, and with sharp ends. 

 

The defects of teeth on the other hand are, that they are blunt,
