Could you give an explanation to this quote, please?

"A wise man should avoid married life as if it were a burning pit of live coals." -Buddha

Why did the Buddha say this? Did He speak about this openly and Did He speak about the sexual alchemy just for a few in secret?

A wise man should avoid (unchastity in) married life as (he would avoid falling into) a burning pit of live coals.


Therefore, if unable to lead a married chaste life (sexual alchemy), he should first practice Pranayamas during Brahmacharya and avoid married life.

For I would that all men were even as I myself. But every man has his proper gift of God, one after this manner, and another after that......
Now concerning virgins I have no commandment of the Lord: yet I give my judgment, as one that has obtained mercy of the Lord to be faithful.
I suppose therefore that this is good for the present distress, I say, that it is good for a man so to be.
Are you bound unto a wife? seek not to be loosed. Are you loosed from a wife? seek not a wife.
But and if you marry, you has not sinned; and if a virgin marry, she has not sinned. Nevertheless such shall have trouble in the flesh: but I spare you.
But this I say, brethren, the time is short: it remains, that both they that have spouses be as though they had none. 1 Corinthians 7: 7, 25-29


“Inmisio membri virili in vagina feminae sine ejeculatium seminis.”

Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah,
the Root of David, has prevailed to open the book,
and to loose the seven seals thereof. - Revelation 5: 5
