CHAPTER III. 

 

EXAMINATION OF THE STATE OF A WOMAN'S MIND. 

 

 

When a man is trying to gain over a woman he should examine the state of 

her mind, and acts as follows. 

 

If she listens to him, but does not manifest to him in any way her own 

intentions, he should then try to gain her over by means of a 

go-between. 

 

If she meets him once, and again comes to meet him better dressed than 

before, or comes to him in some lonely place, he should be certain that 

she is capable of being enjoyed by the use of a little force. A woman 

who lets a man make up to her, but does not give herself up, even after 

a long time, should be considered as a trifler in love, but owing to the 

fickleness of the human mind, even such a woman can be conquered by 

always keeping up a close acquaintance with her. 

 

When a woman avoids the attentions of a man, and on account of respect 

for him, and pride in herself, will not meet him or approach him, she 

can be gained over with difficulty, either by endeavouring to keep on 

familiar terms with her, or else by an exceedingly clever go-between. 

 

When a man makes up to a woman, and she reproaches him with harsh words, 

she should be abandoned at once. 

 

When a woman reproaches a man, but at the same time acts affectionately 

towards him, she should be made love to in every way. 

 

A woman who meets a man in lonely places, and puts up with the touch of 

his foot, but pretends, on account of the indecision of her mind, not to 

be aware of it, should be conquered by patience, and by continued 

efforts as follows: 

 

If she happens to go to sleep in his vicinity he should put his left arm 

round her, and see when she awakes whether she repulses him in reality, 

or only repulses him in such a way as if she were desirous of the same 

thing being done to her again. And what is done by the arm can also be 

done by the foot. If the man succeeds in this point he should embrace 

her more closely, and if she will not stand the embrace and gets up, but 

behaves with him as usual the next day, he should consider then that she 

is not unwilling to be enjoyed by him. If however she does not appear 

again, the man should try to get over her by means of a go-between; and 

if, after having disappeared for some time she again appears, and 

behaves with him as usual, the man should then consider that she would 

not object to be united with him. 

 

When a woman gives a man an opportunity, and makes her own love manifest 

to him, he should proceed to enjoy her. And the signs of a woman
