« Thus I have heard. On one occasion, the Blessed One was dwelling at Savattthi in Jeta's grove, Anathapindika's park. There the Blessed One addressed the monks: "Bhikkhus!"
"Venerable sir!" those monks replied.
The Blessed One said this: "Bhikkhus, I do not see one other form that so obsesses the mind of a man as the form of a woman. The form of a woman takes hold of the mind of a man."
Aṅguttara Nikāya 1.1 (i.e. very first sutta of the Numerical Discourses)
