Sri Krsna’s beauty

The gopīs said to Kṛṣṇa,

Within these three worlds there is no distinction between men and women in relation to You because both men and women belong to the marginal potency, or prakṛti. No one is actually the enjoyer, or male; everyone is meant to be enjoyed by You. There is no woman within these three worlds who cannot but deviate from her path of chastity when she is attracted to You because Your beauty is so sublime that not only men and women, but cows, birds, beasts, and even trees, fruits, and flowers — everyone and everything — become enchanted, and what to speak of ourselves? [Kṛṣṇa, p. 252]
