    On biting, and the means to be employed with regard to women og different countries


    All the places that can be kissed are also the places that can be bitten, except the upper lip, the interior of the mouth, and the eyes. The qualities of good teeth are as follows: They should be equal, possessed of a pleasing brightness, capable of being coloured, of proper proportions, unbroken, and with sharp ends.

    The defects of teeth on the other hand are that they are blunt, protruding from the gums, rough, soft, large, and loosely set.

    The following are the different kinds of biting:

  • The hidden bite
  • The swollen bite
  • The point
  • The line of points
  • The coral and the jewel
  • The line of jewels
  • The broken cloud
  • The biting of the boar
