Gandhi was bizzarre not saintly when it came to sex
Wednesday, 27th January 2010
Gandhi despised his own sexual desires, and despised sex in any context except for procreation. He preached that the failure to control carnal urges led to complaints including constipation.
He believed that sex was bad for the health of an individual, and that sexual freedom would lead Indians to failure as a people. He sought to consign his nation to what Martin Luther called "the hell of celibacy".
He took his own celibacy vow unilaterally, without consulting his wife.
