1. Sex is allowed only for begetting nice children

    Therefore the sastras enjoin that one may have sexual intercourse only if married and only for procreation. Otherwise it is illicit.

    Reverend Powell: Thank you. I take it from what you’ve just been saying, Your Grace, referring to illicit sex as being anything that’s not in marriage and not for procreation within marriage.

    Prabhupada: Only the sex allowed only for begetting nice children.

    Reverend Powell: Yes. You don’t feel that…

    Prabhupada: And beyond that, sex, that is illicit sex.

    Reverend Powell: And that is out.

    Prabhupada: That is not good.

    Guest (1): Well, in this present world I think, you know, sex is not for procreation, it is more for fun. I think ninety-nine percent of the couples who indulge in sex do not think of children at that time.

    Prabhupada: But that is sinful.
