CONCLUDING REMARKS

satisfying the desire of their women, though they perhaps have no desire 

of their own. Others enjoy with great affection only those wives that 

they particularly like, while others only take them according as the 

turn of each wife arrives in due course. Such are the ways of enjoyment 

prevalent in Eastern countries, and what is said about the means of 

enjoyment of the female is also applicable to the male. 

 

By means of their female attendants the ladies of the royal harem 

generally get men into their apartments in the disguise or dress of 

women. Their female attendants, and the daughters of their nurses, who 

are acquainted with their secrets, should exert themselves to get men to 

come to the harem in this way by telling them of the good fortune 

attending it, and by describing the facilities of entering and leaving 

the palace, the large size of the premises, the carelessness of the 

sentinels, and the irregularities of the attendants about the persons of 

the royal wives. But these women should never induce a man to enter the 

harem by telling him falsehoods, for that would probably lead to his 

destruction. 

 

As for the man himself, he had better not enter a royal harem, even 

though it may be easily accessible, on account of the numerous disasters 

to which he may be exposed there. If however he wants to enter it, he 

should first ascertain whether there is an easy way to get out, whether 

it is closely surrounded by the pleasure garden, whether it has separate 

enclosures belonging to it, whether the sentinels are careless, whether 

the King has gone abroad, and then, when he is called by the women of 

the harem, he should carefully observe the localities, and enter by the 

way pointed out by them. If he is able to manage it, he should hang 

about the harem every day, and, under some pretext or other, make 

friends with the sentinels, and show himself attached to the female 

attendants of the harem, who may have become acquainted with his design, 

and to whom he should express his regret at not being able to obtain the 

object of his desire. Lastly he should cause the whole business of a 

go-between to be done by the woman who may have access to the harem, and 

he should be careful to be able to recognize the emissaries of the King. 

 

When a go-between has no access to the harem, then the man should stand 

in some place where the lady, whom he loves, and whom he is anxious to 

enjoy, can be seen. 

 

If that place is occupied by the King's sentinels, he should then
