CHAPTER IV. 

 

ABOUT THINGS TO BE DONE ONLY BY THE MAN, AND THE ACQUISITION OF THE GIRL 

THEREBY. ALSO WHAT IS TO BE DONE BY A GIRL TO GAIN OVER A MAN, AND 

SUBJECT HIM TO HER. 

 

 

Now when the girl begins to show her love by outward signs and motions, 

as described in the last chapter, the lover should try to gain her over 

entirely by various ways and means, such as the following:-- 

 

When engaged with her in any game or sport he should intentionally hold 

her hand. He should practise upon her the various kinds of embraces, 

such as the touching embrace, and others already described in a 

preceeding chapter (Part II. Chapter 2). He should show her a pair of 

human beings cut out of the leaf of a tree, and such like things, at 

intervals. When engaged in water sports, he should dive at a distance 

from her, and come up close to her. He should show an increased liking 

for the new foliage of trees and such like things. He should describe to 

her the pangs he suffers on her account. He should relate to her the 

beautiful dream that he has had with reference to other women. At 

parties and assemblies of his caste he should sit near her, and touch 

her under some pretence or other, and having placed his foot upon her's, 

he should slowly touch each of her toes, and press the ends of the 

nails; if successful in this, he should get hold of her foot with his 

hand and repeat the same thing. He should also press a finger of her 

hand between his toes when she happens to be washing his feet; and 

whenever he gives anything to her or takes anything from her, he should 

show her by his manner and look how much he loves her. 

 

He should sprinkle upon her the water brought for rinsing his mouth; and 

when alone with her in a lonely place, or in darkness, he should make 

love to her, and tell her the true state of his mind without distressing 

her in any way. 

 

Whenever he sits with her on the same seat or bed he should say to her, 

"I have something to tell you in private," and then, when she comes to 

hear it in a quiet place, he should express his love to her more by 

manner and signs than by words. When he comes to know the state of her 

feelings towards him he should pretend to be ill, and should make her 

come to his house to speak to him. There he should intentionally hold 

her hand and place it on his eyes and forehead, and under the pretence
