    CHAPTER II
    Of the means of exciting Desire, and of the ways of enlarging the Lingam. Miscellaneous Experiments and Receipts


    In the hole made in the lingam a man may put Apadravyas of various forms, such as the `round', the `round on one side', the `wooden mortar', the `flower', the `armlet', the `bone of the heron', the `goad of the elephant', the `collection of eight balls', the `lock of hair', the `place where four roads meet', and other things named according to their forms and means of using them. All these Apadravyas should be rough on the outside according to their requirements.

    The ways of enlarging the lingam must be now related.

    When a man wishes to enlarge his lingam, he should rub it with the bristles of certain insects that live in trees, and then, after rubbing it for ten nights with oils, he should again rub it with the bristles as before. By continuing to do this a swelling will be gradually produced in the lingam, and he should then lie on a cot, and cause his lingam to hang down through a hole in the cot. After this he should take away all the pain from the swelling by using cool concoctions. The swelling, which is called `Suka', and is often brought about among the people of the Dravida country, lasts for life.

    If the lingam is rubbed with the following things, the plant physalis flexuosa, the shavara-kandaka plant, the jalasuka plant, the fruit of the egg plant, the butter of a she buffalo, the hastri-charma plant, and the juice of the vajrarasa plant, a swelling lasting for one month will be produced.

    By rubbing it with oil boiled in the concoctions of the above things, the same effect will be produced, but lasting for six months.

    The enlargement of the lingam is also effected by rubbing it or moistening it with oil boiled on a moderate fire along with the seeds of the pomegranate, and the cucumber, the juices of the valuka plant, the hastri-charma plant, and the eggplant.

    In addition to the above, other means may be learnt from experienced and confidential persons.

    The miscellaneous experiments and recipes are as follows:

    If a man mixes the powder of the milk hedge plant, and the kantaka plant with the excrement of a monkey and the powdered root of the lanjalika plant, and throws this mixture on a woman, she will not love anybody else afterwards.

    If a man thickens the juice of the fruits of the cassia fistula, and the eugenia jambolana by mixing them with the powder of the soma plant, the vernonia anthelmintica, the eclipta prostata, and the lohopa-jihirka, and applies this composition to the yoni of a woman, and then has sexual intercourse with her, his love for her will be destroyed.
