[1] This have I heard: On one occasion the Blessed One was living near Savatthi, in Jeta's park, staying in Anathapindika's monastery. There indeed the Exalted One called upon the Bhikkhus: 'Bhikkhus!'. 'Venerable Sir!' answered the Bhikkhus. The Blessed One then explained this:

Bhikkhus, I see no other single form, that even so keeps captivating a man's mind as the form of a woman. The male mind, Bhikkhus, remains obsessed with the female form.

Bhikkhus, I perceive no other single sound, that even so remains entrancing a man's mind as the sound of a woman. The male mind, Bhikkhus, remains overwhelmed by the female voice.

Bhikkhus, I know of no other single smell, that even so persists tempting a man's mind as the fragrance of a woman. The male mind, Bhikkhus, remains enslaved by the female scent.[2]

Bhikkhus, I cannot think of any other single taste, that even so continues to entice a man's mind as the flavour of a woman. The male mind, Bhikkhus, remains ensnared by the female savour.

Bhikkhus, I cannot comprehend any other single touch, that even so keeps overpowering a man's mind as the soft touch of a woman. The male mind, Bhikkhus, remains addicted to the female sensation.

Bhikkhus, I see no other single form, that even so keeps captivating a woman's mind as the form of a man. The female mind, Bhikkhus, remains obsessed with the male form.

Bhikkhus, I perceive no other single sound, that even so remains entrancing a woman's mind as the sound of a man. The female mind, Bhikkhus, remains dominated by the male voice.

Bhikkhus, I know of no other single smell, that even so persists tempting a woman's mind as the fragrance of a man. The female mind, Bhikkhus, remains enslaved by the male scent.

Bhikkhus, I cannot think of any other single taste that even so continues to entice a woman's mind as the flavor of a man. The female mind, Bhikkhus, remains ensnared by the male savor.

Bhikkhus, I comprehend no other single touch, that even so keeps overpowering a woman's mind as the touch of a man. The female mind, Bhikkhus, remains addicted to the male sensation.
