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
