The Buddha teachings are meant to tell the exact dharma-gates to liberation

If we were to discuss about airplane, all the high speed rails or the most expensive sport cars would not qualify to fit in, because they lack the basic require to fly, they cannot take off.
Perhaps such statement is not the best example, what I try to explain is that the final goal in Buddhism is to transcend the Three Realms 三界 or attain Buddhahood. The practitioners should have the correct dharma-gate 法門 to cultivate to attain liberation, otherwise they simply just stay in the Three-Realms. The "taking off" (transcendence) power in Buddhism refers to the prajna wisdom.
Buddhist cultivation is in daily life, and the prajna wisdom is to lead an individual to be freed from reincarnation within the Three Realms 解脫輪迴 through daily life. The Buddha teachings are meant to tell the exact dharma-gates to liberation.
Everyone knows well that the result of sexuality is to have new life, and it means "go on living" within the Three Realms; so why should one intend to practice for liberation and still hold on to a method of "go on living"?
