If a man is unable to satisfy a Hastini, or Elephant woman, he should have
recourse to various means to excite her passion. At the commencement he
should rub her yoni (vagina) with his hand or fingers, and not begin to
have intercourse with her until she becomes excited, or experiences pleasure.
This is one way of exciting a woman.
Or, he may make use of certain Apadravyas, or things which are put on or around the lingam (penis) to supplement its length or its thickness, so as to fit it to the yoni. In the opinion of Babhravya, these Apadravyas should be made of gold, silver, copper, iron, ivory, buffalo's horn, various kinds of wood, tin or lead, and should be soft, cool, provocative of sexual vigour, and well fitted to serve the intended purpose. Vatsyayana, however, says that they may be made according to the natural liking of each individual.
The following are the different kinds of Apadravyas (Sex Toys / Sexual Aids / Dildos):
'The armlet'(Valaya) should be of the same size as the lingam, and should have its outer surface made rough with globules.
'The couple' (Sanghati)is formed of two armlets.
'The bracelet' (Chudaka) is made by joining three or more armlets, until they come up to the required length of the lingam.
'The single bracelet' is formed by wrapping a single wire around the lingam, according to its dimensions.
The Kantuka or Jalaka is a tube open at both ends, with a hole through it, outwardly rough and studded with soft globules, and made to fit the side of the yoni, and tied to the waist.
When such a thing cannot be obtained, then a tube made of the wood apple, or tubular stalk of the bottle gourd, or a reed made soft with oil and extracts of plants, and tied to the waist with strings, may be made use of, as also a row of soft pieces of wood tied together.
The above are the things that can be used in connection with or in the place of the lingam.
The people of the southern countries think that true sexual pleasure cannot be obtained without perforating the lingam, and they therefore cause it to be pierced like the lobes of the ears of an infant pierced for earrings.
Now, when a young man perforates his lingam he should pierce it with a sharp instrument, and then stand in water so long as the blood continues to flow. At night, he should engage in sexual intercourse, even with vigour, so as to clean the hole. After this he should continue to wash the hole with decoctions, and increase the size by putting into it small pieces of cane, and the wrightia antidysenterica, and thus gradually enlarging the orifice. It may also be washed with liquorice mixed with honey, and the size of the hole increased by the fruit stalks of the simapatra plant. The hole should also be anointed with a small quantity of oil.
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.

of Space and Motion and the Wave
Structure of Matter (WSM). What is the most Simple
Science Theory of Reality? Describing Reality from One
(with properties of a nearly rigid continuous wave medium) rather than Many
Things (Matter). i. e. From Matter as discrete Particles
generating continuous Spherical Fields in Space-Time
to Matter as Spherical Standing Waves in Space (see diagram below).

Physics (and thus all human knowledge) evolved from Newton's concepts of particles and forces in Space and Time, which assumes the existence of four separate things. This causes many problems for Humanity because the necessary connection between these things is unknown. Einstein failed to solve this with his unified field theory of matter which describes reality in terms of matter-energy (fields) in space-time. The Metaphysics of Space and Motion and the Wave Structure of Matter (WSM) solves these problems by describing Reality in terms of One thing, Space, existing with the Properties of a Wave Medium. Matter is formed from Spherical Standing Waves in Space which cause the 'particle' effect at their Wave Center. Time is due to the Wave Motion (activity) of Space. Forces / fields are caused by the interaction of the Spherical In and Out Waves with other matter in Space which changes the wave velocity and thus location of the Wave-Center (and which we 'see' as a 'force accelerating a particle').

Geoff and Karene
(George Berkeley, 1710) Nothing seems of more importance, towards erecting a firm system of sound and real knowledge, which may be proof against the assaults of skepticism, than to lay the beginning in a distinct explication of what is meant by thing, reality, existence: for in vain shall we dispute concerning the real existence of things, or pretend to any knowledge thereof, so long as we have not fixed the meaning of those words.
