How does Hinduism view human sexuality ?

The purpose of sexual union of husband and wife is to express and nurture their intimate love for each other, which draws them closer for procreation.  Hinduism does not dictate special code for  sexual behaviour  except that abortion and adultery, except to save the mother’s life, are prohibited  by scriptures. Hinduism neither condones nor condemns, birth control, sterilization, polygamy, homosexuality or masturbation. The only rigeid rule is the wisdom guided by virtues and tradition.
Hindu tradition  and wisdom demands that intimacies of sexual intercourse remain within the confines of married life. Hindus believe in marriages that are free of pre-martial and extra-martial sex seldom end in separation or divorse. Hindu parents parents strongly advise their children to value and preserve their chastity as a sacred treasure for their spouse.
Traditional, Hindus do not practise polygamy, which is forbidden by law in India.
