Sexual experience, on the other hand, was supposed to give girls dark, large, downward-pointing nipples. The signs of chastity are as follows: shame, modesty, fear, a faultless gait and speech, casting eyes down before men and the acts of men. Some women are so clever, however, that they know how to resist detection by these signs, and in this case a man should turn to their urine.
