CONCLUDING REMARKS

of India from a very ancient time. The "Shushruta," a work on medicine 

some two thousand years old, describes the wounding of the lingam with 

the teeth as one of the causes of a disease treated upon in that work. 

Traces of the practice are found as far back as the eighth century, for 

various kinds of the Auparishtaka are represented in the sculptures of 

many Shaiva temples at Bhuvaneshwara, near Cuttack, in Orissa, and which 

were built about that period. From these sculptures being found in such 

places, it would seem that this practice was popular in that part of the 

country at that time. It does not seem to be so prevalent now in 

Hindustan, its place perhaps is filled up by the practice of sodomy, 

introduced since the Mahomedan period.] 

 

 

 

 

 

 

CHAPTER X. 

 

OF THE WAY HOW TO BEGIN AND HOW TO END THE CONGRESS. 

 

DIFFERENT KINDS OF CONGRESS AND LOVE QUARRELS. 

 

 

In the pleasure-room, decorated with flowers, and fragrant with 

perfumes, attended by his friends and servants, the citizen should 

receive the woman, who will come bathed and dressed, and will invite her 

to take refreshment and to drink freely. He should then seat her on his 

left side, and holding her hair, and touching also the end and knot of 

her garment, he should gently embrace her with his right arm. They 

should then carry on an amusing conversation on various subjects, and 

may also talk suggestively of things which would be considered as 

coarse, or not to be mentioned generally in society. They may then sing, 

either with or without gesticulations, and play on musical instruments, 

talk about the arts, and persuade each other to drink. At last when the 

woman is overcome with love and desire, the citizen should dismiss the 

people that may be with him, giving them flowers, ointment, and betel 

leaves, and then when the two are left alone, they should proceed as has 

been already described in the previous chapters. 

 

Such is the beginning of sexual union. At the end of the congress, the 

lovers with modesty, and not looking at each other, should go separately 

to the washing-room. After this, sitting in their own places, they 

should eat some betel leaves, and the citizen should apply with his own 

hand to the body of the woman some pure sandal wood ointment, or 

ointment of some other kind. He should then embrace her with his left 

arm, and with agreeable words should cause her to drink from a cup held 

in his own hand, or he may give her water to drink. They can then eat
