CONCLUDING REMARKS

should also pay her long visits openly under the pretence of being 

engaged with her on business, and one business should lead to another, 

so as to keep up the intercourse between them. Whenever she wants 

anything, or is in need of money, or wishes to acquire skill in one of 

the arts, he should cause her to understand that he is willing and able 

to do anything that she wants, to give her money, or teach her one of 

the arts, all these things being quite within his ability and power. In 

the same way he should hold discussions with her in company with other 

people, and they should talk of the doings and sayings of other persons, 

and examine different things, like jewellery, precious stones, etc. On 

such occasions he should show her certain things with the values of 

which she may be unacquainted, and if she begins to dispute with him 

about the things or their value, he should not contradict her, but point 

out that he agrees with her in every way.

and has manifested her love to him by the various outward signs; and by

treated with the greatest delicacy, and the man should proceed with 

considerable caution, though in the case of other women, accustomed to 

sexual intercourse, this is not necessary. When the intentions of the 

girl are known, and her bashfulness put aside, the man should begin to 

make use of her money, and an interchange of clothes, rings, and flowers 

should be made. In this the man should take particular care that the 

things given by him are handsome and valuable. He should moreover 

receive from her a mixture of betel nut and betel leaves, and when he is 

going to a party he should ask for the flower in her hair, or for the 

flower in her hand. If he himself gives her a flower it should be a 

sweet smelling one, and marked with marks made by his nails or teeth. 

With increasing assiduity he should dispel her fears, and by degrees get 

her to go with him to some lonely place, and there he should embrace and 

kiss her. And finally at the time of giving her some betel nut, or of 

receiving the same from her, or at the time of making an exchange of 

flowers, he should touch and press her private parts, thus bringing his
