A long while ago (2007) I did a post on skills a good prostitute ought to have per Vatsyayana. At the time my score was 23/64. Just came upon it by accident and decided to re-check, since MBA+motherhood+experience=profit, right? Sooo:

OK, but what's the point?

"A public woman endowed with a good disposition, beauty, and other winning qualities and also versed in the above arts obtains the name of a Ganika, or public woman of high quality , and receives a seat of honor in an assemblage of men. She is, moreover, always respected by the king, and praised by learned men, and her favor being sought for by all, she becomes an object of universal regard. The daughter of a king, too, as well as the daughter of a minister, being learned in the above arts can make their husbands favorable to them, even though these may have thousands of other wives besides themselves. And in the same manner, if a wife becomes separated from her husband and falls into distress she can support herself easily, even in a foreign country, by means of her knowledge of these arts. "

I barely score a B-, 43/64=67.2%. Tell me o Vatsyayana, is my case hopeless?
"Even the bare knowledge of them gives attractiveness to a woman, though the practice of them may be possible only according to the circumstances of each case."

Yay! But what about equal opportunity?
"A man who is versed in these arts, who is loquacious and acquainted with the arts of gallantry, gains very soon the hearts of women, even though he is acquainted with them for only a short time"


And now you know. Go forth and improve yourselves!
For [livejournal.com profile] cema i pr. zhelajuschix.

Первый играющий произносит строку/стихотворение. Второй должен произнести строку/стихотворение начинающееся на последнюю букву предыдущего. Строки могут быть откуда угодно, но если играющий придумывает их сам их должно быть как минимум две, рифмованных, и с различимым размером. Каждый играющий обязан ответить если спросят откуда стих. Можно делать ход на любом языке, если буквы совпадают, но обязательно давать перевод по требованию любого из играющих. Например на "За морями за лесами" можно ответить "in the darkness of every night"

28. A game which consists of repeating verses and as one person finishes another person has to commence at once repeating another verse beginning with the same letter with which the last speaker's verse ended. Whoever fails lost and must pay a forfeit of some kind.
As promised to [livejournal.com profile] cema, here's a list of the sixty-four practices that forma part of the Kama Shastra, the study of which Vatsyayana strongly recommends to females in his Kama Sutra:

Sooooo, friends of mine - how many of the above do you know? Are any of you worthy of the name of a public woman of high esteem? Tell me!
