Drop of Dhamma Delight!

Friends:

Sex addiction obsesses and enslaves the mind...


This have I heard: On one occasion the Blessed One was living near Savatthi, in Jeta's park, staying in
Anathapindika's monastery. There indeed the Exalted One called upon the Bhikkhus: 'Bhikkhus!'.
'Venerable Sir!' answered the Bhikkhus. The Blessed One then explained this: Bhikkhus, I see no other
single form, that even so keeps captivating a man's mind as the form of a woman. The male mind, Bhikkhus,
remains obsessed with the female form. Bhikkhus, I perceive no other single sound, that even so remains
entrancing a man's mind as the sound of a woman. The male mind, Bhikkhus, remains overwhelmed by the
female voice. Bhikkhus, I know of no other single smell, that even so persists tempting a man's mind as the
fragrance of a woman. The male mind, Bhikkhus, remains enslaved by the female scent. Bhikkhus, I cannot
think of any other single taste, that even so continues to entice a man's mind as the flavour of a woman.
The male mind, Bhikkhus, remains ensnared by the female savour. Bhikkhus, I cannot comprehend any other
single touch, that even so keeps overpowering a man's mind as the soft touch of a woman. The male mind,
Bhikkhus, remains addicted to the female sensation. Bhikkhus, I see no other single form, that even so keeps
captivating a woman's mind as the form of a man. The female mind, Bhikkhus, remains obsessed with the male
form. Bhikkhus, I perceive no other single sound, that even so remains entrancing a woman's mind as the sound
of a man. The female mind, Bhikkhus,remains dominated by the masculine voice. Bhikkhus, I know of no other
single smell, that even so persists tempting a woman's mind as the fragrance of a man. The female mind remains
enslaved by the male scent. Bhikkhus, I cannot think of any other single taste that even so continues to entice
a woman's mind as the flavour of a man. The female mind, Bhikkhus, remains ensnared by the male savour.
Bhikkhus, I comprehend no other single touch, that even so keeps overpowering a woman's mind as the touch
of a man. The female mind, Bhikkhus, remains addicted to the sensation of a male.
