Strīsaṅga (स्त्रीसङ्ग) refers to “association with women”, according to the Śivapurāṇa 2.3.24 (“Śiva consents to marry Pārvatī”).—Accordingly, as Śiva said to Viṣṇu: “O Viṣṇu, O Brahmā, O gods, all of you please hear with attention. I am going to say a specific thing in a suitable manner. Marrying is not a proper thing for men. Marriage is a great fetter that binds firmly. There are many base bondages in the world. Association with women [i.e., strīsaṅga] is the toughest of all. One can free oneself from all bondages except that of women. [...]”.
