Sex life is compared to the rubbing of two hands to relieve an itch. Grhamedis, so-called grhasthas who have no spiritual knowledge, think that this itching is the greatest platform of happiness, although actually it is a source of distress. The krpanas, the fools who are just the opposite of brahmanas, are not satisfied by repeated enjoyment. Those who are dhira, however, who are sober and who tolerate this itching, are not subjected to the sufferings of fools and rascals.
There is no easy path when it comes to sexual purity. Strong commitment to purity, coupled with self-discipline and strong sadhana are essential. Otherwise, sexual attraction is insurmountable. Even great sages fall prey to its allurement.
Sex could be a gift of God but when it becomes an obsession, it blunders all intelligence and people are driven to abominable acts to satisfy their lust.
