If the children were to go to karmi school and watch television there are two things that they would be exposed to, namely sex and violence, and we all know what that exposure can do to young, impressionable minds. Whether or not we read the Bhagavatam, all children will ask these questions. But through the Bhagavatam they see a different perspective – sex for a higher purpose, for producing God-conscious children.
In the Bhagavatam there are many references to sex life, but all of them recommend sex only according to religious principles – for procreation . We have many examples of personalities who produced exalted children due to proper use of sex life. For example, the progenitors such as Daksa and Kasyapa Muni produced thousands of children in order to populate the earth. The Bhagavatam does not view sex negatively; rather it shows how to use everything in Krishna’s service.
