    ut these four latter kinds of Nayikas do not differ much from the first four kinds of them, as there is no separate object in resorting to them. Therefore Vatsyayana is of opinion that there are only four kinds of Nayikas, i.e., the maid, the twice married woman, the public woman, and the woman resorted to for a special purpose.

    The following women are not to be enjoyed:—

    A leper.
    A lunatic.
    A woman turned out of caste.
    A woman who reveals secrets.
    A woman who publicly expresses desire for sexual intercourse.
    A woman who is extremely white.
    A woman who is extremely black.
    A bad-smelling woman.
    A woman who is a near relation.
    A woman who is a female friend.
    A woman who leads the life of an ascetic.

    and the arts and sciences subordinate thereto, in addition to the study of the arts and sciences contained in Dharma and Artha. Even young maids should study this Kama Sutra along with its arts and sciences before marriage, and after it they should continue to do so with the consent of their husbands.

    Here some learned men object, and say that females, not being allowed to study any science, should not study the Kama Sutra.

    But Vatsyayana is of opinion that this objection does not hold good

    Moksha, i.e., release from further transmigration
