Mahavira said:

Put an end to luxury. Luxury is absolutely unnecessary.
Control it fully. Exercise control over it.

This may sound to be harsh, but it is an imperative.

Savvam vilviyam geeyam, savvam nattarn vidambit,
Savve abhama bhara, savvey kama duhavaha

The songs that arouse passion are not songs - these are lamentations.
Dances and plays that arouse passion are a mockery.
The ornaments and decorations that provoke exhibitionism are a drag.
Unrestrained passion increases unhappiness.
