A beautiful young woman makes a wonderful “object” of study for a practicing Buddhist like myself. First one is struck by the beauty of the human form itself, and quickly reminded of its wonderful value for development. These are then replaced by less wholesome thoughts of desire, sexual arousal and even fantasies of possession. But one does not turn away. One simply does not add to these thoughts. They mean nothing and are quickly replaced by others such as admiration or even jealousy. If one does not attach to these and realises they are merely delusions, one’s mind then begins to analyse the object. The woman is self-confident or perhaps over confident, a make-up artist at least, with good or bad taste. One has started to become judgemental. One returns to mindfulness, accepting the object as a living being and as such one automatically takes over the suffering of the woman and all women and brings her and indeed all living beings into our field of compassion. Oh that we could all live without attachment and desire and realise the ego is simply an illusion. One realises this wonderful “object” will soon become a corpse, just as our own body will. We quickly realise that we are subject to rebirth according to the laws of karma. We quickly realise the immensity of samsara and we commit ourselves again to overcome it and retake our Bodhisattva vows, making dedications of our practice to all sentient beings.

WHAT IF THE BEAUTIFUL OBJECT WANTS TO HAVE SEX WITH YOU ?
IF YOU DO NOT COMPLY, YOU ARE AGAIN MAKING A MISTAKE OF BREAKING THE BODHISATTVA VOW BY NOT HELPING A SENTIENT BEING....

This is a non-sense. Is having sex with someone necesserily helping that being? Do not take your desire for reality...

The Bodhisattva vows are absolutely not saying to answer the "desires" of the others, but their "needs".
The later requires, by the way, enough wisdom in order to discern the difference between desires & needs, otherwise we might just be following our own projections!

You shall get a correct explanation of the Bodhisattva vows, and about Bodhicitta, before spreading such wrong ideas...
