CONCLUDING REMARKS

other girls. He may also show her a ball dyed with various colours, and 

other curiosities of the same sort; and should give her dolls made of 

cloth, wood, buffalo-horn, ivory, wax, flour, or earth; also utensils 

for cooking food, and figures in wood, such as a man and woman standing, 

a pair of rams, or goats, or sheep; also temples made of earth, bamboo, 

or wood, dedicated to various goddesses; and cages for parrots, cuckoos, 

starlings, quails, cocks, and partridges; water-vessels of different 

sorts and of elegant forms, machines for throwing water about, guitars, 

stands for putting images upon, stools, lac, red arsenic, yellow 

ointment, vermilion and collyrium, as well as sandal-wood, saffron, 

betel nut and betel leaves. Such things should be given at different

various arts, he should show his own skill in them. When she is 

delighted with singing he should entertain her with music, and on 

certain days, and at the time of going together to moonlight fairs and 

festivals, and at the time of her return after being absent from home, 

he should present her with bouquets of flowers, and with chaplets for 

the head, and with ear ornaments and rings, for these are the proper 

occasions on which such things should be presented. 

 

He should also teach the daughter of the girl's nurse all the sixty-four 

means of pleasure practised by men, and under this pretext should also 

inform her of his great skill in the art of sexual enjoyment. All this
