The Perfumed Garden is a classic Arabic manual and a piece of literature. Muḥammad ibn Muḥammad al-Nafzawi probably wrote The Perfumed Garden sometime during the twelfth century somewhere around today’s Tunisia. The book is interesting because of its no-tabu approach, amusing stories, and somewhat naive assumptions about human physiology. The Perfumed Garden lists opinions on how men and women should behave and dress in order to be attractive, it gives advice on sexual techniques and warnings about health, and even recipes to remedy maladies.
