"When one thing is practiced & pursued, ignorance is abandoned, clear knowing arises, the conceit 'I am' is abandoned, latent tendencies are uprooted, fetters are abandoned. Which one thing? Mindfulness immersed in the body." -AN 1.230

To counter the perception to sensual pleasures (especially sexual one) which is very strong in all of us, the Buddha provided an effective antidote, which is the contemplation on the impurity of the body's 31 components mentioned in the Satipatthana Sutta: http://www.accesstoinsight.org/tipitaka ... .than.html
