Sex is a blissful experience when it is performed as an extension of love for the other person, but when it is done just to derive gratification out of it then it creates problems. The desire to feed the lust is a never-ending process, and it makes a person addicted to sex.
The knowledge about sex is essential for everyone. There are many misconceptions prevailing in the society about sex. Sexual harassment, rape, infidelity and of the same prevails in the society due to lack of sex knowledge.

However, the pleasure obtained through spirituality is always going to remain with the person throughout their lives.
Spirituality is not about killing the sexual desire, which is essential for the reproduction of human being. Spirituality does not intend to make human being extinct.
Love is the core of sex and spirituality. Sex is the lower nature of love whereas spirituality is a highest form of love. Both give the sensation of pleasure. However, the pleasure obtained through sex is transitory in nature whereas the joy of spirituality never ends.
The path of spirituality advancement is an unending. There is no limit to grow and evolve as a spiritual being. Here the seekers keep on growing every moment. The desire to move on and enjoy the blissful experiences of life never goes to end on the path of spiritual development.
