K: Sex plays an extraordinarily important part in our lives because it is perhaps the only deep, firsthand experience we have. Intellectually and emotionally we conform, imitate, follow, obey. There is pain and strife in all our relationships, except in the act of sex.
K: Thought, as we have said, sustains pleasure by thinking about something that has been pleasurable, cultivating the image, the picture. Thought engenders pleasure. Thinking about the sexual act becomes lust, which is entirely different from the act of sex. What most people are concerned with is the passion of lust. Craving before and after sex is lust. This craving is thought.
So - is act of sex/masturbation - an actual freedom from ‘pain’?
Whenever we are down (i.e. suffer) in our life - we think about ‘sex’ - and this thinking is called ‘lust’. In this feeling - we tend to watch porn or search for a partner - and also try to watch or indulge in a new type/category/fetish - and we feel it as ‘creativity’.
Is it a real creativity?
Is this craving - which happens for thousands of years (i.e. evolution from animals and from stone age) - brings the real miseries in our world? - (miseries like sexual harassment and seeing other person as a sexual object)
- controlling this lustful feelings, or
- diverting this by making an aim/going out for movie,etc…/spending time with friends,
