During the practice of sexual alchemy, kama which is not contrary to dharma, what is meant by having sex without attatchment? i understand that it refers to sex without the attatchment to sensation ( lust) , but what i do not understand is This: is the adoration of my spouses beautiful body, and magnetic attraction to her qualify as attatchment? Although we never spill the cup ever, and would avoid doing so at all costs, and work tremendously to eliminate all psychological impuitys ( and are suceeding at doing so) we have become like two inseperable magnets: this must be attatchment, right?

Is adoration of your spouses physical landscape lust?

By attachment is indicated the tendency of indulgence, the desire to repeat, to indulge, saturate. In other words, when we like the feeling of something, we want to grasp on to it so that it continues to give us the feeling we like, whether that feeling is physical, emotional, mental, spiritual, etc. So, we become attached to those feelings and the object or circumstance that produces those feelings. This kind of attachment is based in desire for sensation (again, not just physical). Attachment / desire is the basis of suffering.

It is necessary to comprehend this mechanism and rise above it, to instead be capable of experiencing the feeling but not craving for it to remain. This is only possible by eliminating desire.

Only you know if your adoration is lust. But know this: love and lust are totally incompatible.
