    We can go back to the Old Testament and we can see prescriptions for physical pain as discipline for building strong moral character. Proverbs 23:13-14 “Withhold not correction for the child, beat him with a rod and he shall not die.  Beat him with a rod and you shall save his soul from hell”.  Anyone who was brought up in the Western Judeo Christian religious tradition knows that pain, suffering, deprivation are morale virtues and a path to salvation. And the opposite is also true, that body pleasure, and predictably sexual pleasure is evil, immoral, sinful, and will lead to damnation.
