"Sexual Society" | Mahatma Das



so today I want to talk about social influence on all of us and we've been talking the last few days about the social influences sexual I was just call it sexual frequencies that are being spit out everywhere around us yesterday I heard something perhaps you know this is very alarming there's a picture of a baby and the baby has about twenty logos on its body and it was said by the time a child is six months old they recognize logos that's pretty scary they recognize the brand and the color so we are being programmed to be consumers we are no longer citizens but we are consumers we often if you listen to the news sometimes you see we're often referred to as consumers and as we've been talking about briefly we mentioned yesterday sex sells and therefore it's always been used in advertising at least for the last 40 50 years has been used predominantly in advertising and now it's it's come to such an extreme that what have would have been considered pornography previously is commonly used in ads to sell products that have nothing to do with women and nothing to do with sex but sex sells so that means we're all growing up in a society in which were programmed to think about others in relationship to them as sexual partners especially women so the way women are raised now they're raised seeing these images of other beautiful women that actually are not that beautiful butter Photoshop you know in Photoshop you can become thinner every limb of your body can become thinner your face can change your waist can change everything can change so there's one famous model her name is Cindy Crawford a famous American model and she once said I wish I could look like Cindy Crawford in other words the way she was four graph the way she was made up the way she was photoshopped there's nothing to do with actually the way she looks and so she said I wish I could look like Cindy Crawford that's pretty funny so women grow up seeing these images of these beautiful women that actually don't exist and men grow up seeing these images of beautiful women that don't exist and this becomes their ideal of a woman this is what they see when they're looking for a woman and of course when women are made to look this way and not clothed well naturally the man thinks of sex so in our society a woman's Worth has become predominantly her physical attraction and her physical attraction of course relates to sex the pleasure she can give a man so this is what we've come to now what's so interesting about this is that within Vedic society there's this extreme separation of men and women to prevent this and control of what the public can see and hear which practically is gone in our society some of music some of the music videos are simply pornography but it's available everywhere and as you know pornography pornography is available on any smartphone so we've never been in a situation like this in the entire history of the world where we've become so sexually crazed and this is having a huge effect on relationships because men do not want to commit they'd rather just live with the woman enjoy sex with her and then dump her if they become tired of her or find a more beautiful woman now one time Sheila prophet said something very interesting he told the story of bilvamangala talk or going to visit the prostitutes and hominy and he said actually she wasn't a prostitute she was his girlfriend but within Vedic society if an unmarried man is having sex with an unmarried woman Pross to a girlfriend it's the same thing something very funny happened about ten years ago on the talk show it's a very conservative religious talk show host Jewish not Christian but a girl called in and was having trouble with her boyfriend and so they this lady's name is dr. Laura so she said are you having sexual relations with him she said yes she said are you married to him she said no and then dr. Laura threw her off and said well how much are you charging him and that of course threw the girl off and the girl said what do you mean he said well you're you're his prostitute so if you're going to be his prostitute at least get paid for it because if you're not married why are you having sex so this is a woman about my age were raised in another generation no if you say that today people think well there's something wrong with you why are you singing these things but the reality is where sexual constraints are not made there will be an increase in divorce there will be increase in a loss of chastity cheating on it's just it's like common sense anybody can understand a boy is raised a girl is raised sexualized they're thinking about sex from an early age they have many many boyfriends and girlfriends before they get married and how are they going to be chased of that one woman and there's pornography all around them and even if you're not looking at pornography it's still all around you in the advertising and having it on billboards magazines social media you really can't avoid it so this is actually destroying us so so interesting to look at this in relation to the principles in Vedic society where marriages are arranged a girl has one boy that's it because we they arranged marriages so many problems and yes yeah okay there may be so many problems but the principle is she has one man in her life she it's not going around sleeping with men dating men she has one man that's it and it were so is something to think about I thought it was interesting when we see where society is going today even though if we look at the Vedic and think well the Vedic is very conservative maybe outdated but when you actually see what's going on in society today then the Vedic makes it makes complete sense because Vedic sadhus understood that unless there is sexual control unless there is chastity unless there is separation of the sexes to a healthy degree within society there's going to be unwanted pregnancy there's going to be divorced there's going to be men and women living together there's going to be venereal disease that's going to be a controllable mess and we're seeing the mess and it's just getting worse
