The Perfumed Garden Of The Shaykh Nefwazi
Translated by Sir Richard Burton

"The Perfumed Garden by Muhammad ibn Muhammad al-Nafzawi is a sex manual and work of erotic literature. The full title of the book is The Perfumed Garden of Sensual Delight (al-rawd al-'atir fi nuzhati'l khatir).

The book presents opinions on what qualities men and women should have to be attractive, gives advice on sexual technique, warnings about sexual health, and recipes to remedy sexual maladies. It gives lists of names for the penis and vagina, has a section on the interpretation of dreams, and briefly describes sex among animals. Interspersed with these there are a number of stories which are intended to give context and amuse." (Quote from

Moussa asked who the man was, she told him, This is my husband, and for him I would give my life ' This is a hard slavery, ' he said, to which you are reduced, and I am sorry for you. We belong to God, and shall return to him but what a misfortune it is that such incomparable beauty and such delightful forms as I see in you should be for such a man '
