It looks like you're new here. If you want to get involved, click one of these buttons!
I know I am harping on a bit about it but I do struggle with the idea that as a single person I should stop having sex.
I don't know that that is a recommendation or expectation.
It might be advice, but nobody (AFAIK) would force you to make that decision.
As I said (and as it has been explained to me) do nothing that would compromise the will or happy cooperation of any person involved.
If it feels good? Do it.
When in doubt? Don't.
The question is, is that the Buddhist teaching or just us doing what we want?
I can only reply by stating that it is as a Theravadin Buddhist Monk explained it in a Dhamma Talk to laypersons, at Amravati.
A Theravada monk said, "If it feels good, do it?" Really?
Oh yes, absolutely....!
No, silly.... I mean his explanation of the 3rd Precept!
(Or 'Grammar', even... )
Absolutely, you have sinned! It's called Chamomint!! I mean to say, really!!
I bloody hope so! Start stomping!
Mother, would you like a cup of tea to chew on....?
