eruvin 18

like partitions enclosing a spring, Adam surrounded himself with a belt of fig-leaves. but it didn't stop demons springing from his sperm. perhaps he shouldn't have separated from Eve, and should have followed her instead.

(on this page the type and number of partitions to enclose a well and spring is discussed and quotes R. Yirmeya b. Elazar. The talmud continues to quote various statements from R. Yirmeya. He discuss the the creation of Adam & Eve. and describes that after exile from Eden, out of shame Adam wore a belt of fig-leaves and separated from Eve for 130 years. during that time he 'fathered' demons from his semen. this page also discusses that men should not walk behind their wives...)
