It probably means to not generalize your own difficulty with sexuality what should and should not be. Celibacy is not for everyone and to take the Catholic stance that every act of coition must be open to the possibility of conception is to be insensitive.befriend wrote:whats that mean?

as i think sex for recreation is as buddha said a low act performed by common people. didnt he say that.
modern medicine views sex as being healthy, and a great release of stress.
this is because no one practices voluntary celibacy in our society.
the health benefits of voluntary celibacy are vast. your intelligence your well being your energy, your health. yogis for thousands of years have thought celibacy to be a main staple of there spiritual and physical well being.
so ive also noticed the less i look at girls cleavage or whatever the less lust arises. where does lust come from? focusing on beauty. ive stopped looking at womens bodies even when i watch tv i look away, its like i stopped feuling the fire.
so i come back to my initial point. why do you think there are so many STD's?
is this not the universe telling us something about recreational sex?
wouldnt the world be a better place, if we all had sex only for procreation.
this would stop aids pretty much.
i dont know its incredibly good karma to refrain from sexual activity, the same cant be said for having sex.
thoughts? metta, befriend.
