CONCLUDING REMARKS

sweetmeats, or anything else, according to their likings, and may drink 

fresh juice,[40] soup, gruel, extracts of meat, sherbet, the juice of 

mangoe fruits, the extract of the juice of the citron tree mixed with 

sugar, or anything that may be liked in different countries, and known 

to be sweet, soft, and pure. The lovers may also sit on the terrace of 

the palace or house, and enjoy the moonlight, and carry on an agreeable 

conversation. At this time, too, while the woman lies in his lap, with 

her face towards the moon, the citizen should show her the different 

planets, the morning star, the polar star, and the seven Rishis, or 

Great Bear. 

 

This is the end of sexual union. 

 

Congress is of the following kinds, viz.: 

 

Loving congress. 

Congress of subsequent love. 

Congress of artificial love. 

Congress of transferred love. 

Congress like that of eunuchs. 

Deceitful congress. 

Congress of spontaneous love. 

 

(1). When a man and a woman, who have been in love with each other for 

some time, come together with great difficulty, or when one of the two 

returns from a journey, or is reconciled after having been separated on 

account of a quarrel, then congress is called the "loving congress." It 

is carried on according to the liking of the lovers, and as long as they 

choose. 

 

(2). When two persons come together, while their love for each other is 

still in its infancy, their congress is called the "congress of 

subsequent love." 

 

(3). When a man carries on the congress by exciting himself by means of 

the sixty-four ways, such as kissing, etc., etc., or when a man and a 

woman come together, though in reality they are both attached to 

different persons, their congress is then called "congress of artificial 

love." At this time all the ways and means mentioned in the Kama Shastra 

should be used. 

 

(4). When a man, from the beginning to the end of the congress, though 

having connection with the women, thinks all the time that he is 

enjoying another one whom he loves, it is called the "congress of 

transferred love." 

 

(5). Congress between a man and a female water carrier, or a female 

servant of a caste lower than his own, lasting only until the desire is 

satisfied, is called "congress like that of eunuchs." Here external 

touches, kisses, and manipulations are not to be employed. 

 

(6). The congress between a courtezan and a rustic, and that between 

citizens and the women of villages, and bordering countries, is called,
