Of all kinds of suffering and bondage arising from various attachments, none
is greater than the suffering and bondage arising from attachment to women
and intimate contact with those attached to women.
One should make a great endeavor to give up intimate contact with women and
those fond of women. A learned gentleman will automatically be on guard if
placed in intimate contact with lusty women. In the company of lusty men,,
however, the same man may engage in all kinds of social dealings and thus be
contaminated by their polluted mentality. Association with lusty men is
often more dangerous than association with women and should be avoided by
all means. There are innumerable verses in the Bha-gavatam describing the
intoxication of material lust. Suffice it to say that a lusty man becomes
exactly like a dancing dog and, by the influence of Cupid, loses all
gravity, intelligence and direction in life. The Lord warns here that one
who surrenders to the illusory form of a woman suffers unbearably in this
life and the next.
