CONCLUDING REMARKS

it. After gaining this point he should touch her private parts, should 

loosen her girdle and the knot of her dress, and turning up her lower 

garment should shampoo the joints of her naked thighs. Under various 

pretences he should do all these things, but he should not at that time 

begin actual congress. After this he should teach her the sixty-four 

arts, should tell her how much he loves her, and describe to her the 

hopes which he formerly entertained regarding her. He should also 

promise to be faithful to her in future, and should dispel all her fears 

with respect to rival women, and, at last, after having overcome her 

bashfulness, he should begin to enjoy her in a way so as not to frighten 

her. So much about creating confidence in the girl; and there are, 

moreover, some verses on the subject as follows:-- 

 

A man acting according to the inclinations of a girl should try and gain 

her over so that she may love him and place her confidence in him. A 

man does not succeed either by implicitly following the inclination of a 

girl, or by wholly opposing her, and he should therefore adopt a middle 

course. He who knows how to make himself beloved by women, as well as to 

increase their honour and create confidence in them, this man becomes an 

object of their love. But he, who neglects a girl thinking she is too 

bashful, is despised by her as a beast ignorant of the working of the 

female mind. Moreover, a girl forcibly enjoyed by one who does not 

understand the hearts of girls becomes nervous, uneasy, and dejected, 

and suddenly begins to hate the man who has taken advantage of her; and 

then, when her love is not understood or returned, she sinks into 

despondency, and becomes either a hater of mankind altogether, or, 

hating her own man, she has recourse to other men.[48]
