I'd be very grateful if anyone could point me in the direction of Arabic or earlier sources that describe how to judge horary questions on (or, possibly, elections for) sexual intercourse: how pleasurable it would be/have been, etc.

I hasten to add that I'm not looking to apply the rules personally, Very Happy but rather to find the origin of certain Indian statements on the matter.

Hi Martin,

You do have a way of making electional astrology more attractive! Very Happy

fwiw... Al-Biruni has two Arabic parts for intercourse:

Asc + Venus - Sun
Asc + Mars - Moon

hi martin,

ben dykes newest book which was translated by eduardo j. gramaglia has a passing mention on page 90 under the chapter "on a request for favors". hopefully that is along the lines you are looking for.

Thanks, James. Unfortunately I haven't got 'round to getting a copy of that volume. If you could give any more details, that would be much appreciated.

hi martin,
here is a direct quote page 90 - top of page.

<Chapter>On a request for favors 328

1 For those who ask for faors it is needful to watch the Moon to ensure she is on the Hour-marker or in its triangle ( even better if she happens to be in her own house), increasing in light and numbers, and configured with Mercury, Jupiter, Venus, and with those (stars) that are well-posited. Let her as well be kept away from the testimony of the malefics. 2 With this figure, it is favorable for women and men to have intercourse.329

328 - Charis. Or, "gratifications, delights," etc. This word can also have a sexual meaning, as in 2(EG)

329 -Entuexis. This word can also refer simply to meeting and conversing; i.e. "social" intercourse.(EG)

Thanks again. This is not specific enough to be the source of the Indian material I've been looking for, so I'll just have to keep looking.
