CONCLUDING REMARKS

means of her female friends, and the daughter of her nurse. The girl 

herself should try to get alone with her beloved in some quiet place, 

and at odd times should give him flowers, betel nut, betel leaves and 

perfumes. She should also show her skill in the practice of the arts, in 

shampooing, in scratching and in pressing with the nails. She should 

also talk to him on the subjects he likes best, and discuss with him the 

ways and means of gaining over and winning the affections of a girl. 

 

But old authors say that although the girl loves the man ever so much, 

she should not offer herself, or make the first overtures, for a girl 

who does this loses her dignity, and is liable to be scorned and 

rejected. But when the man shows his wish to enjoy her, she should be 

favourable to him and should show no change in her demeanour when he 

embraces her, and should receive all the manifestations of his love as 

if she were ignorant of the state of his mind. But when he tries to kiss 

her she should oppose him; when he begs to be allowed to have sexual 

intercourse with her she should let him touch her private parts only and 

with considerable difficulty; and though importuned by him, she should 

not yield herself up to him as if of her own accord, but should resists 

his attempts to have her. It is only, moreover, when she is certain that 

she is truly loved, and that her lover is indeed devoted to her, and 

will not change his mind, that she should then give herself up to him, 

and persuade him to marry her quickly. After losing her virginity she 

should tell her confidential friends about it. 

 

Here ends the efforts of a girl to gain over a man. 

 

There are also some verses on the subject as follows: A girl who is much 

sought after should marry the man that she likes, and whom she thinks 

would be obedient to her, and capable of giving her pleasure. But when 

from the desire of wealth a girl is married by her parents to a rich man 

without taking into consideration the character or looks of the 

bridegroom, or when given to a man who has several wives, she never 

becomes attached to the man, even though he be endowed with good 

qualities, obedient to her will, active, strong, and healthy, and 

anxious to please her in every way.[49] A husband who is obedient but 

yet master of himself, though he be poor and not good looking, is better 

than one who is common to many women, even though he be handsome and 

attractive. The wives of rich men, where there are many wives, are not
