God created sex as a gift to the MARRIED couple, and when God creates something, there is always power behind it.
Sex isn't just a physical act that is pleasing to the body, it is also a spiritual act. 
God created sex so that a married couple becomes a spiritual bound. 
It creates a spiritual bond that ties around the two, bringing them into unity as one flesh, just as God intended. (Mark 10:8 - And the two will become one flesh. So they are no longer two, but one). 

This is why when a woman has sex with a man, she finds it hard to detach from him after they break up because she has become spiritually connected to him. God doesn't bless the bed of the unmarried. THAT form of sex will be full of emptiness, hurt and heartbreak, because anything OUTSIDE of God only comes from the enemy. 

When you are not married, the devil is trying to get you into bed, and when you are married, he is trying to get you out! 
So how can we overcome our sexual desires and temptations? 

Romans 8 says, "A mind that is ran by the flesh leads to death" 
Our MINDS.
A thought is given birth to, we then ponder on that thought, that thought begins to take root, it becomes a strong hold and then that thought turns into an action. 

We can never be tempted by something we don't think about! Thoughts WILL turn into actions if we don't immediately take it captive and cast it to God. 
2 Corinthians 10:5 - "And we take captive every thought and make it obedient to God" 

If you are battling with sin, that means your mind is set there. 
Change your thought pattern! 
The Holy Spirit will help renew and alter your mind if you allow Him to. 

Philippians 4:8 - "Whatever is true, noble, right, pure, lovely, admirable, if anything is excellent or praiseworthy, THINK on such things."
