CHAPTER VIII
About women acting the part of a man; and of the work of a man
q PART I:
INTRODUCTORY
- Chapter I
When a woman sees that her lover is fatigued by constant congress, without
- Chapter II
having his desire satisfied, she should, with his permission, lay him down upon
- Chapter III
- Chapter IV his back, and give him assistance by acting his part. She may also do this to
- Chapter V satisfy the curiosity of her lover, or her own desire of novelty. There are two
ways of doing this, the first is when during congress she turns round, and gets
on the top of her lover, in such a manner as to continue the congress, without
q PART II: ON SEXUAL
obstructing the pleasure of it; and the other is when she acts the man's part
UNION
- Chapter I from the beginning. At such a time, with flowers in her hair hanging loose, and
- Chapter II her smiles broken by hard breathings, she should press upon her lover's bosom
- Chapter III with her own breasts, and lowering her head frequently, should do in return the
- Chapter IV same actions which he used to do before, returning his blows and chaffing him,
- Chapter V should say, `I was laid down by you, and fatigued with hard congress, I shall
- Chapter VI
now therefore lay you down in return.' She should then again manifest her own
- Chapter VII
bashfulness, her fatigue, and her desire of stopping the congress. In this way
- Chapter VIII
she should do the work of a man, which we shall presently relate.

CHAPTER IX
Of the Auparishtaka or mouth congress
q PART I:
INTRODUCTORY
- Chapter I
There are two kinds of eunuchs, those that are disguised as males, and those
- Chapter II
that are disguised as females. Eunuchs disguised as females imitate their dress,
- Chapter III
- Chapter IV speech, gestures, tenderness, timidity, simplicity, softness and bashfulness.
- Chapter V The acts that are done on the jaghana or middle parts of women, are done in
the mouths of these eunuchs, and this is called Auparishtaka.1 These eunuchs
derive their imaginable pleasure, and their livelihood from this kind of congress,

and they lead the life of courtesans. So much concerning eunuchs disguised as

- Chapter II
- Chapter III
Eunuchs disguised as males keep their desires secret, and when they wish to do

anything they lead the life of shampooers. Under the pretence of shampooing, a

eunuch of this kind embraces and draws towards himself the thighs of the man
- Chapter VI
whom he is shampooing, and after this he touches the joints of his thighs and
- Chapter VII
his jaghana, or central portions of his body. Then, if he finds the lingam of the
- Chapter VIII
man erect, he presses it with his hands and chaffs him for getting into that
- Chapter IX
state. If after this, and after knowing his intention, the man does not tell the
- Chapter X
eunuch to proceed, then the latter does it of his own accord and begins the
congress. If however he is ordered by the man to do it, then he disputes with

him, and only consents at last with difficulty.

INTRODUCTORY
- Chapter I
- Chapter II
In the pleasure-room, decorated with flowers, and fragrant with perfumes,
- Chapter III
- Chapter IV attended by his friends and servants, the citizen should receive the woman,
- Chapter V who will come bathed and dressed, and will invite her to take refreshment and
to drink freely. He should then seat her on his left side, and holding her hair,
and touching also the end and knot of her garment, he should gently embrace
q PART II: ON SEXUAL
her with his right arm. They should then carry on an amusing conversation on
UNION
- Chapter I various subjects, and may also talk suggestively of things which would be
- Chapter II considered as coarse, or not to be mentioned generally in society. They may
- Chapter III then sing, either with or without gesticulations, and play on musical
- Chapter IV instruments, talk about the arts, and persuade each other to drink. At last when
- Chapter V the woman is overcome with love and desire, the citizen should dismiss the
- Chapter VI
people that may be with him, giving them flowers, ointments, and betel leaves,
- Chapter VII
and then when the two are left alone, they should proceed as has been already
- Chapter VIII
described in the previous chapters.
- Chapter IX
- Chapter X
Such is the beginning of sexual union. At the end of the congress, the lovers
with modesty, and not looking at each other, should go separately to the

washing-room. After this, sitting in their own places, they should eat some betel

cause her to drink from a cup held in his own hand, or he may give her water to

- Chapter IV
likings and may drink fresh juice,1 soup, gruel, extracts of meat, sherbet, the
- Chapter V
juice of mango fruits, the extract of the juice of the citron tree mixed with

- Chapter II this time, too, while the woman lies in his lap, with her face towards the moon,
the citizen should show her the different planets, the morning star, the polar
star, and the seven Rishis, or Great Bear.

This is the end of sexual union.

When a girl of the same caste, and a virgin, is married in accordance with the

precepts of Holy Writ, the results of such a union are the acquisition of Dharma
- Chapter III
- Chapter IV and Artha, offspring, affinity, increase of friends, and untarnished love. For this

parents are alive, and who is three years or more younger than himself. She
should be born of a highly respectable family, possessed of wealth, well

- Chapter I of a good disposition, with lucky marks on her body, and with good hair, nails,
- Chapter II teeth, ears, eyes and breasts, neither more nor less than they ought to be, and
- Chapter III no one of them entirely wanting, and not troubled with a sickly body. The man
- Chapter IV should, of course, also possess these qualities himself. But at all events, says
- Chapter V Ghotakamukha, a girl who has been already joined with others (i.e. no longer a

maiden) should never be loved, for it would be reproachable to do such a thing.
