May 5, at 1: I agree, the gods of the Hindu Pantheon had full sexual lives, for which I am glad. My definition of God-hood is the achieving of balance with all of that we are.
But the question that plagues me is that they didnt seem in balance so why were they the Gods? They all had some really weird quirks, very much like us, humans. As for Moral Codes, I try not to wrap my head around it.
They change as the needs of our lives change, so it cant be written on stone. At the most, they can only serve to keep harmony in certain circumstances.

Love in the Mahabharata
Krishna loved Arjuna so much, he actually helped him abduct his own sister!! Some of the most beautiful maidens of the age lost their hearts to him and he must have resisted their charms as best as he could but wound up marrying them anyways.
Draupadi, Uloopi — the Serpent Princess, Chitrangada, and Subhadra were the lucky ladies whom he married. At her swayamwara an ancient practice whereby ladies of royal blood got to choose their grooms from an assortment of men of equally distinguished birth from all over the country who would gather and pray for the honor of being the one garlanded by the Princessit was Arjuna disguised as a poor Brahmin who performed a near impossible task to win her hand. However, thanks to her mother — in — law who being annoying in the manner of mothers — in — law across the ages put paid to her chances of a happily ever after with him by unknowingly please!
And so it came to be that the bride Arjuna won was to become the wife of his brothers as well. Draupadi nursed her forbidden love for Arjuna in the innermost recesses of her heart and pined away for him for the duration of her natural life.

It was said that her hotness was such that even those sages who practiced the harshest of austerities and had gained renown for their mastery of the senses were transformed into quivering masses of lustful desire in her presence.
However when this exquisite creature decided to indulge her desire for Arjuna and condescended to offer her carnal skills to him for the duration of a night, he spurned her.
Arjuna refused to sleep with her because he felt their union would be incestuous since Urvashi had been married to an ancestor of his and she was in effect his great many times over grandmother. A lesser known skill is his expertise in dance and music. It served him in good stead during his stint as the eunuch, Brihannalla.
