Not many people can attain jhanas
Desire for sense pleasures there are many types of sense pleasures which includes sexual desire, it is one of the 5 hindrances and I think it is the hardest one to avoid and as long as there remains even a latent craving (including that for sex), according to the Buddhist teaching rebirth will inevitably continue to take place. and and even attaining the first Jhana will be impossible until the desire for sex eliminated. The Buddha was a superhuman being
Do you think if a human being is able to eliminate the five hindrances completely which includes sexual desire and becomes celibate for the rest of his life is truly superhuman just like the Buddha?
