History of Pompoir

Also known as the Singapore kiss, Shanghai kiss, Shanghai squeeze or the Shanghai grip and "playing the flute", it is possible that the word 'pompoir' originated in India. A technique referred to as kabbazah (Pompoir) in a 16th century Indian text is considered an important part of woman's training before she becomes a wife:

"She must... close and constrict the Yoni until it holds the Lingam as with a finger, opening and shutting at her pleasure, and finally acting as the hand of the Gopala girl who milks the cow. This can be learned only by long practice, and especially by throwing the will into the part affected, even as men endeavor to sharpen their hearing... Her husband will then value her above all other women, nor would he exchange her for the most beautiful queen in the Three Worlds..."

Among some races the vaginal muscles may be abnormally developed whereby a woman can contract her muscles so as to cause pain to a man and is fully able to induce her partner's orgasm without moving any other part of her body.

A woman such as this is known as a Kabbazah (which literally means 'a holder'), and in history it was known for slave dealers to pay large sums for such an artist.
