devo ’devan jaghanatah
ta enam lolupataya
devah—Lord Brahma; adevan—demons; jaghanatah—from his buttocks; srjati sma—gave birth; ati-lolupan—excessively fond of sex; te—they; enam—Lord Brahma; lolupataya—with lust; maithunaya—for copulation; abhipedire—approached.
Lord Brahma then gave birth to the demons from his buttocks, and they were very fond of sex. Because they were too lustful, they approached him for copulation.
Sex life is the background of material existence. Here also it is repeated that demons are very fond of sex life. The more one is free from the desires for sex, the more he is promoted to the level of the demigods; the more one is inclined to enjoy sex, the more he is degraded to the level of demoniac life.
