[Footnote 77: It is a custom of the courtesans of Oriental countries to 

give their daughters temporarily in marriage when they come of age, and 

after they have received an education in the Kama Sutra and other arts. 

Full details are given of this at page 76 of "Early Ideas, a group of 

Hindoo stories, collected and collated by Anaryan. W. H. Allen and Co., 

London, 1881."] 

 

[Footnote 78: From the earliest times Oriental authors have occupied 

themselves about aphrodisiacs. The following note on the subject is 

taken from page 29 of a translation of the Hindoo Art of Love, otherwise 

the Anunga Runga, alluded to in the preface of this work, Part I., pages 

3 and 5:--"Most Eastern treatises divide aphrodisiacs into two different 

kinds: 1., the mechanical or natural, such as scarification, 

flagellation, etc.; and 2., the medicinal or artificial. To the former 

belong the application of insects, as is practised by some savage races; 

and all orientalists will remember the tale of the old Brahman, whose 

young wife insisted upon his being again stung by a wasp."] 

 

 

 

 

CHAPTER II. 

 

OF THE WAYS OF EXCITING DESIRE, AND MISCELLANEOUS EXPERIMENTS, AND 

RECIPES. 

 

 

If a man is unable to satisfy a Hastini, or elephant woman, he should 

have recourse to various means to excite her passion. At the 

commencement he should rub her yoni with his hand or fingers, and not 

begin to have intercourse with her until she becomes excited, or 

experiences pleasure. This is one way of exciting a woman. 

 

Or, he may make use of certain Apadravyas, or things which are put on or 

around the lingam to supplement its length or its thickness, so as to 

fit it to the yoni. In the opinion of Babhravya, these Apadravyas should 

be made of gold, silver, copper, iron, ivory, buffalo's horn, various 

kinds of wood, tin or lead, and should be soft, cool, provocative of 

sexual vigour, and well fitted to serve the intended purpose. 

Vatsyayana, however, says that they may be made according to the natural 

liking of each individual. 

 

The following are the different kinds of Apadravyas. 

 

(1). "The armlet" (Valaya) should be of the same size as the lingam, and 

should have its outer surface made rough with globules. 

 

(2). "The couple" (Sanghati) is formed of two armlets. 

 

(3). "The bracelet" (Chudaka) is made by joining three or more armlets,
