When Gensha Shibi, a Chinese Zen master, and a general
were eating cakes together,

Quote: ""The problem with sex according to Buddhism... Is not the activity of sex, but the desire for sex? The sexual desire of a human being will never be ultimately satisfied through sexual activity." MU" .........
Isn't it rather the opposite: sex without desire is problematic and unnatural? Why should bodily desires be problematic for Buddhism?
Sex, drugs and rock & roll: they we drive you crazy, they drive you insane. It has not been my observation that there is any problem with humans having a lack of desire. The problem is that desire causes attachment which makes one wish for permanence. There is no permanence therefore suffering is the result. Having sex is good, enjoying sex is better but to chase the smoky dragon of sexual desire causes suffering. MU
