Sex Within Marriage and Evil Inclination
The first book of Tanya repeatedly discusses the obligation for a person to overcome his evil inclination, whether it is for food or for sexual desire. However, how is sexual relations sanctified upon two people getting married? If a man is to have intercourse with his wife, is he not still arousing his lust, thus empowering the evil inclination? How does one ever hope to become righteous, if he should have that as his goal, when the Torah commands him to take on the obligation to please his wife?
