Similar in content to the Kama Sutra, but doused with stories and hence reminiscent of 1001 Arabian Nights. It's also noticeably misogynistic.

The most informationally~oriented chapters:
Chapter 8 : around 68 euphemisms for the male member, with a mid~chapter discussion on dreams.
Chapter 9 : Ditto vi

So far, the most enjoyable, luscious, lascivious, erotic, hard-core, improper, lecherous. lustful, naughty, pornographic, racy, risqué, sexually explicit and '50 Shades Of Grey' '15th century Islamic' book I've read so far.

Its is, after all, the Arabic cum Islamic Kamasutra, with a lot of raunchy st

كسابقه " الروض العاطر في نزهة الخاطر " لنفس الكاتب الشيخ العلامة سيدي محمد النفزاوي حديثه عن النكاح ويتحفنا بنوادر عصره الجنسية.. الكتاب مسل على كل حال، على الرغم من ' فضاحة ' الكتاب إلا انه يعطيك فكرة عن الجنس في هذا العصر والطرق التي يتناولها بها الناس ويفكرون إزاءه.. ولا غرابة ان نجد نفس العقلية
