CONCLUDING REMARKS

decorates her so as to show her love, and instructs her how and when to 

be angry, or to pretend to be so, and then, having herself made marks of 

the nails and teeth on the body of the wife, gets the latter to send for 

her husband to show these marks to him, and thus excite him for 

enjoyment, such is called the go-between of an innocent young woman. In 

such cases the man should send replies to his wife through the same 

woman. 

 

(6). When a man gets his wife to gain the confidence of a woman whom he 

wants to enjoy, and to call on her and talk to her about the wisdom and 

ability of her husband, that wife is called a wife serving as a 

go-between. In this case the feelings of the woman with regard to the 

man should also be made known through the wife. 

 

(7). When any man sends a girl or a female servant to any woman under 

some pretext or other, and places a letter in her bouquet of flowers, or 

in her ear ornaments, or marks something about her with his teeth or 

nails, that girl or female servant is called a mute go-between. In this 

case the man should expect an answer from the woman through the same 

person. 

 

(8). A person, who carries a message to a woman, which has a double 

meaning, or which relates to some past transactions, or which is 

unintelligible to other people, is called a go-between who acts the part 

of the wind. In this case the reply should be asked for through the same 

woman. 

 

Thus end the different kinds of go-betweens. 

 

A female astrologer, a female servant, a female beggar, or a female 

artist are well acquainted with the business of a go-between, and very 

soon gain the confidence of other women. Any one of them can raise 

enmity between any two persons if she wishes to do so, or extol the 

loveliness of any woman that she wishes to praise, or describe the arts 

practised by other women in sexual union. They can also speak highly of 

the love of a man, of his skill in sexual enjoyment, and of the desire 

of other women, more beautiful even than the woman they are addressing, 

for him, and explain the restraint under which he may be at home. 

 

Lastly a go-between can, by the artfulness of her conversation unite a 

woman with a man, even though he may not have been thought of by her, or 

may have been considered beyond his aspirations. She can also bring back 

a man to a woman, who, owing to some cause or other, has separated 

himself from her.
