sex before marriage in Hinduism

Today I'll share a blog post on the topic of 

sex before marriage in Hinduism 

as it appears on 

speakingtree



I know within some religion sex before marriage is forbidden, but I have never seen or read anything within Hindu scriptures that sex is a bad thing. It may be a cultural thing perhaps. I draw the following points about sex in Hinduism.
- Hinduism gives great significance to sex.

- Having sex just for fun and pleasure is actually like unspiritual and immoral act  with a partner. But when you have sex with a being you love ...it takes the two of you to a totally different reality.

- According to Hinduism making love is the Union of souls / energy. More than the physical aspect of it..the mental, spiritual part is given much significance.

- It is said ... making love is one of the very few ways...a being gets to taste the bliss of becoming part of the great energy.

- Sex is also considered great power and great responsibility.

-It creates life / It opens a door for another being to experience reality through a physical body. The amount of love the couple had when preparing the creation of this new physical body...directly impacts the experience, the new being will have on earth or where ever they are born. So a couple's feelings for each other, their vibration level when they were mating directly impacts the child they are about to create.

The above are some of the stuff why Hinduism gives significance to sex.

- Hinduism....does not forbid ...pre marriage sex. But it says that... the life creating, greatest joy in the world.....becomes actually a joy and a great experience when you experience it with someone you love.

- Another reason why Hinduism doesn't support unnecessary sex (It doesn't say no though), is that according to Hinduism... energy used, released during sex contains great power. ( No wonder it creates life). It says that the energy used for sex / Tejas is something very powerful. The more you preserve it, the more your body and mind prepares itself, strengthen itself to find wisdom. That's why Indian Yogis practice sexual abstinence. This is also the reason why in the ancient India a couple who've completed all their duties, have adult kids..practice strict abstinence and meditation
