Sensual (not sexual) enjoyment?
New to Buddhism. I was inspired to start this thread because I was just enjoying a bowl of peach butterscotch pudding (at least it was vegan :D) and it got me wondering- where does Buddhism stand on enjoying things like sweets, music, movies, alcohol, even sex...?
I'm a little confused. Some Buddhists seem to enjoy these things just fine without it compromising their practise, others advocate almost total asceticism and frown upon engaging the senses more than necessary.
