Buddhist quotes on Porn, Love, Sex and RelationshipsSun, March 14, 2010 - 8:44 PM
"Sex (without love), and ejactulation itself, is the cause of most discord between couples and the world (power struggles, arguments -emotions, our souls collective karma)"
I watch porn because i'm not with anyone right now and have lost my privacy, but it depends on your relationship, i'm not an advocate and IMO a detriment, Esp. men and ejaculation, can make us crazy, angry, animal dogs, violence, wars, etc. and could be addictive, to myself and others, and lose vital energy, a reactive reptilian brain (Below).
Let me first just say I think there's a difference between desire and passion, desire is a wanting and craving of the mind and can be of the body, body emotions collected in the soul of past memories and/or elation or trauma, emotional body craving of the soul can be balanced or unbalanced, triggered chemicals in the brain that can lead to addictions, and/or love.
passion is actions taken from the heart (will)
KMT teaches divine sexuality.
everything in moderation.
Men retain your semen retention

Sex is not the Enemy; Sex is not a Sin; A Loveless Relationship is the Sin
"Men there is no need to ejaculate; ejaculation can be totally forgotten."
Why? because can be a Lie,
NEUROCHEMISTRY OF SEX (GOOD)
and Esp. since the Internet, and of all that can be seen online today can become addicting and fleeting (a brain drug-addiction)
Sex (without love), and ejactulation itself, is the cause of most discord between couples (power struggles, arguments -emotions, our souls collective karma)
Porn can be a lie, because nice visual, but others forget emotions and soul are actually involved, sex to me is very sacred, and when you do have someone special to be with, can throw you off and what used to turn you on doesn't. (esp. men)
and why i think Viagra etc are so popular in today's culture,
You can get so caught up in a video that real people don't turn you on, just like Playboy magazines, the visuals get old quick, after the first couple of times, and then you need something new to turn you on, or to get you off - the videos i watched last month no longer turn me on, then on and on, trying to get that fix, creates tension anger, etc, then on to out do the last movie to find something new,
I've seen people turn bi after watching porn, (not that there's anything wrong with being Bi) and/or onto fetishes.
(there's nothing wrong with homosexual relations, just like other relationships...bring love into it)
It's like a drug and chemicals that are released / create our so called dogs.
So what was used as an outlet can effect us.
I think the greatest joy in life is intimacy, being in love and making love,
but just like everything else, there's a healthy way that we must each ascertain for ourselves.

Buddhist quotes on Love, attachment, Sex and Relationships
This is how we love, Buddha-style:
impartial to all, free from excessive attachment, false hope and expectation; accepting, tolerant, compassionate, and forgiving.
Buddhist nonattachment doesn't imply complacence/indifference, not having committed relationships, being passionately engaged with society, but rather has to do with our effort to defy change and resist the fact of impermanence and our mortality. By holding on to that which in any case is forever slipping through our fingers, we just get rope burn.
Lama Surya Das, “A Buddhist Valentine,” from Ask the Lama column at www.beliefnet.com
There's a famous quotation from the time the Buddha learned of the deaths of two of his greatest disciples: “It's as if the sun and the moon have left the sky.” From that quotation, I would guess that while the Buddha loved all beings everywhere, with no exclusion, he also had relationships that were special to him, and he felt their loss.
Sharon Salzberg, “The Open Heart,” Q&A at www.beliefnet.com
Don't give way to heedlessness
or to intimacy
with sensual delight--
for a heedful person,
absorbed in jhana,
attains an abundance of ease.
The Buddha, Dhammapada
The flaws of cyclic existence: Relatives at home, enemies, friends and possessions in the world are the causes of worry for the body and mind. Only virtuous actions can benefit others. Therefore, I will not be attached to these ties and I will cast them away as I would a snake in my lap.
Four Thoughts that Turn the Mind to Dharma (#4): Ngondro Practice text provided to students of Karma Kagyu Tibetan Buddhism
If one stays too long with friends
They will soon tire of him;
Living in such closeness leads to dislike and hate.
It is but human to expect and demand too much
When one dwells too long in companionship.
“The Song of the Snow Ranges”, Milarepa
There is pleasure when a sore is scratched,
But to be without sores is more pleasurable still.
Just so, there are pleasures in worldly desires,
But to be without desires is more pleasurable still.
Nagarjuna, "Precious Garland"
Sex according to Sangarakshita is rooted in the Lower Evolution and does not, in his experience, enhance communication between individuals. And sexual relationships, encouraging as they do neurotic dependence on one's partner, need to be kept at the periphery of one's life.
Sangharakshita, “An Introduction to the Friends of the Western Buddhist Order”
Free passion is radiation without a radiator, a fluid, pervasive warmth that flows effortlessly. It is not destructive because it is a balanced state of being and highly intelligent. Self-consciousness inhibits this intelligent, balanced state of being. By opening, by dropping our self-conscious grasping, we see not only the surface of an object, but we see the whole way through.
Meditation in Action, Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche
Some people live closely guarded lives, fearful of encountering someone or something that might shatter their insecure spiritual foundation. This attitude, however, is not the fault of religion but of their own limited understanding. True Dharma leads in exactly the opposite direction. It enables one to integrate all the many diverse experiences of life into a meaningful and coherent whole, thereby banishing fear and insecurity completely.
Lama Thubten Yeshe, Reprinted from "Daily Wisdom: 365 Buddhist Inspirations," edited by Josh Bartok, Wisdom Publications, 2001
It is precisely because our present life is so inseparably linked with desire that we must make use of desire's tremendous energy if we wish to transform our life into something transcendenta
