The Perfumed Garden
Chapter 17 - Prescriptions for Increasing the Dimensions of Small Members and for Making Them Splendid
Know, O Vizir (God be good to you!), that this chapter, which treats of the size of the virile member,
is of the first importance both for men and women.
For the men because from a good-sized and vigorous member there springs the affection and love of women;
for the women, because it is by such members that their amorous passions are appeased,
and the greatest pleasure is procured for them. This is evident from the fact that many men,
solely by reason of their insignificant members, are, as far as coition is concerned, objects of aversion to women,
who likewise entertain the same sentiment with regard to those whose members are soft, nerveless, and relaxed.
Their whole happiness consists in the use of robust and strong members.
A man, therefore, with a small member, who wants to make it grand or fortify it for the coitus,
must rub it before copulation with tepid water, until it gets red and extended by the blood flowing into it,
in consequence of the heat; he must then anoint it with a mixture of honey and ginger, rubbing it in sedulously.
Then let him join the woman; he will procure for her such pleasure that she objects to him getting off her again.
Another remedy consists in a compound made of a moderate quantity of pepper, lavender, galanga, and musk,
reduced to powder, sifted, and mixed up with honey and preserved ginger.
The member after having been first washed in warm water, is then vigorously rubbed with the mixture;
it will then grow large and brawny, and afford to the woman a marvelous feeling of voluptuousness.
A third remedy is the following: wash the member in water until it becomes red, and enters into erection.
Then take a piece of soft leather, upon which spread hot pitch, and envelop the member with it.
It will not be long before the member raises its head, trembling with passion.
The leather is to be left on until the pitch grows cold, and the member is again in a state of repose.
This operation, several times repeated, will have the effect of making the member strong and thick.
