Yes, there is,specifically on this topic. The purpose of sex is to
bring children into the world.

As one who is trained in modern psychology there is no such
demonstration. For physical intimacy to be valid it must be concordant
with the agreement to have children.

The Mahatma's are perfected human beings and understand all of our
true needs perfectly. Modern psychology is beginning to understand the
relation of sex to the human psyche.
