Food for thought
Whenever you feel sexual attraction towards someone, jealousy can arise because you are not in love. If you are truly in love, jealousy never appears. You are afraid because sex is not actually a real relationship, you are afraid that the other person may go to someone else. This fear becomes jealousy. If there is a genuine relationship it is impossible to find that wealth somewhere else.
