Lingam. Miscellaneous Experiments and Receipts
INTRODUCTORY
- Chapter I
- Chapter II
If a man is unable to satisfy a Hastini, or Elephant woman, he should have
- Chapter III
- Chapter IV recourse to various means to excite her passion. At the commencement he
- Chapter V 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.
q PART II: ON SEXUAL
UNION
- Chapter I
Or, he may make use of certain Apadravyas, or things which are put on or
- Chapter II
around the lingam to supplement its length or its thickness, so as to fit it to the
- Chapter III
yoni. In the opinion of Babhravya, these Apadravyas should be made of gold,
- Chapter IV
silver, copper, iron, ivory, buffalo's horn, various kinds of wood, tin or lead, and
- Chapter V
should be soft, cool, provocative of sexual vigour, and well fitted to serve the
- Chapter VI
intended purpose. Vatsyayana, however, says that they may be made according
- Chapter VII
to the natural liking of each individual.
- Chapter VIII
- Chapter IX
The following are the different kinds of Apadravyas:

q PART III: ABOUT THE q `The armlet' (Valaya) should be of the same size as the lingam, and should
ACQUISITION OF A have its outer surface made rough with globules.
WIFE
q `The couple' (Sanghati) is formed of two armlets.
- Chapter I
q `The bracelet' (Chudaka) is made by joining three or more armlets, until they
- Chapter II
come up to the required length of the lingam.
- Chapter III
q `The single bracelet' is formed by wrapping a single wire around the lingam,
- Chapter IV
according to its dimensions.
- Chapter V
q The Kantuka or Jalaka is a tube open at both ends, with a hole through it,

outwardly rough and studded with soft globules, and made to fit the side of the
q PART IV: ABOUT A
yoni, and tied to the waist.
WIFE
- Chapter I
- Chapter II When such a thing cannot be obtained, then a tube made of the wood apple, or
tubular stalk of the bottle gourd, or a reed made soft with oil and extracts of
plants, and tied to the waist with strings, may be made use of, as also a row of
q PART V: ABOUT THE
soft pieces of wood tied together.
WIVES OF OTHER
PEOPLE
- Chapter I
The above are the things that can be used in connection with or in the place of
- Chapter II
the lingam.
- Chapter III
- Chapter IV
The people of the southern countries think that true sexual pleasure cannot be
- Chapter V
obtained without perforating the lingam, and they therefore cause it to be
- Chapter VI
pierced like the lobes of the ears of an infant pierced for earrings.
q PART VI: ABOUT
COURTESANS Now, when a young man perforates his lingam he should pierce it with a sharp
- Introductory Remarks -
instrument, and then stand in water so long as the blood continues to flow. At
Chapter I
night, he should engage in sexual intercourse, even with vigour, so as to clean
- Chapter II
the hole. After this he should continue to wash the hole with decoctions, and
- Chapter III
increase the size by putting into it small pieces of cane, and the wrightia
- Chapter IV
antidysenterica, and thus gradually enlarging the orifice. It may also be washed
- Chapter V
with liquorice mixed with honey, and the size of the hole increased by the fruit
- Chapter VI
stalks of the simapatra plant. The hole should also be anointed with a small
quantity of oil.

CONCLUDING REMARKS
- Introduction


q PART I:
Thus ends, in seven parts, the Kama Sutra of Vatsyayana, which might
INTRODUCTORY
otherwise be called a treatise on men and women, their mutual relationship,
- Chapter I
and connection with each other.
- Chapter II
- Chapter III
- Chapter IV
It is a work that should be studied by all, both old and young; the former will
- Chapter V
find in it real truths, gathered by experience, and already tested by themselves,
while the latter will derive the great advantage of learning things, which some
q PART II: ON SEXUAL perhaps may otherwise never learn at all, or which they may only learn when it
UNION
is too late (`too late' those immortal words of Mirabeau) to profit by the
- Chapter I
learning.
- Chapter II
- Chapter III
It can also be fairly commended to the student of social science and of
- Chapter IV
humanity, and above all to the student of those early ideas, which have
- Chapter V
gradually filtered down through the sands of time, and which seem to prove
- Chapter VI
that the human nature of today is much the same as the human nature of the
- Chapter VII
long ago.
- Chapter VIII
- Chapter IX
- Chapter X
It has been said of Balzac the great, if not the greatest of French novelists, that
he seemed to have inherited a natural and intuitive perception of the feelings of
q PART III: ABOUT THE men and women, and has described them with an analysis worthy of a man of
ACQUISITION OF A science. The author of the present work must also have had a considerable
WIFE
knowledge of the humanities. Many of his remarks are so full of simplicity and
- Chapter I
truth, that they have stood the test of time, and stand out still as clear and true
- Chapter II
as when they were first written, some eighteen hundred years ago.
- Chapter III
- Chapter IV
As a collection of facts, told in plain and simple language, it must be
- Chapter V
remembered that in those early days there was apparently no idea of
embellishing the work, either with a literary style, a flow of language, or a
q PART IV: ABOUT A
quantity of superfluous padding. The author tells the world what he knows in
WIFE
very concise language, without any attempt to produce an interesting story.
- Chapter I
- Chapter II From his facts how many novels could be written! Indeed much of the matter
contained in Parts III, IV, V and VI has formed the basis of many of the stories
and the tales of past centuries.
q PART V: ABOUT THE
WIVES OF OTHER
PEOPLE
There will be found in Part VII some curious recipes. Many of them appear to be
- Chapter I
as primitive as the book itself, but in later works of the same nature these
- Chapter II
recipes and prescriptions appear to have increased, both as regards quality and
- Chapter III
quantity. In the Anunga Runga or `The Stage of Love', mentioned at page 85 of
- Chapter IV
the Preface, there are found no less than thirty-three different subjects for
- Chapter V
which one hundred and thirty recipes and prescriptions are given.
- Chapter VI


As the details may be interesting, these subjects are described as follows:
