Śukadeva Gosvāmī said: Hearing that Lord Kṛṣṇa had killed Narakāsura and had alone married many brides, Nārada Muni desired to see the Lord in this situation. He thought, “It is quite amazing that in a single body Lord Kṛṣṇa simultaneously married sixteen thousand women, each in a separate palace.” Thus the sage of the demigods eagerly went to Dvārakā.”  (source)

Siva said:- There will be 16,000 wives of Krisna in the Yuga mentioned before. When once, in the spring time, those ladies, having decorated themselves with ornaments, would be drinking together on the banks of a pond studded with full budded lotus flowers, dancing with the wind and resounding with the melodious notes of the cuckoo and musical tunes of the big black bee, they will see Lord Samba, beautiful like Cupid, having eyes handsome like those of a gazelle, and wearing the garlands of malati, passing by. They will cast on him amorous glances, their hearts being fired with lustful feelings and they being targets of the arrows of Cupid. Lord Krishna will come to know all that with his mental vision, and will curse them as follows: ‘Because you cherished the desire of amorous pastime during my absence, all of you will be taken away by bandits.”  (source)

📚Padma Purana 1.23.78-87a📚
Samba, Jambavatl’s son, adorned with all (kinds of ornaments), going along with the path nearby, really of the form of Cupid, will be longingly seen by the ladies and passion will be aroused in the hearts of them who will be tormented by the arrows of Cupid. He, the lord of the world, the omniscient master, having perceived it with his eye of contemplation, will say to them: “The evil being will kidnap you, since you have thus entertained the passion of love (for Samba) in my presence.” Then the revered lord, the cause of beings, the holder of the bow made of horn, being propitiated (by the ladies) tormented with the curse, will say this: “(You will observe) the vow, beneficial in the future, which sage Dalbhya, emancipator of the fishermen living in the north and of an unlimited (generosity of) mind will tell you.” Saying so and leaving them, the lord vanished. Then after a (long) time when the burden (on the earth as a result of the great Bharatawar) will be lightened and when the fight with clubs (among the Yadavas) will be over, when Kesava will have come back to the heaven, when the entire Yadu-family will be no more, when even Arjuna will be defeated by the thieves, when Krsna’s wives will be kidnapped and will be enjoyed by the fishermen for a hundred million years and when they will be (thus) tormented, a devout soul, Dalbhya by name, with great penance (to his credit) will come there.”  (source)

5. Krishna with his concubines 

📚Vishnu Purana 5.13.55-61📚
The Gopīs repeatedly exclaimed, “Bravo, Kṛṣṇa!” to his song. When leading, they followed him; when returning, they encountered him; and, whether he went forwards or backwards, they ever attended on his steps. Whilst frolicking thus with the Gopīs, they considered every instant without him a myriad of years; and, prohibited in vain by husbands, fathers, brothers, they went forth at night to sport with Kṛṣṇa, the object of their affection.”  (source)

📚Shrimad Bhagavatam 10.33.16-17📚
In this way Lord Krsna, the original Lord Närãyana, master of the goddess of fortune, took pleasure in the company of the young women of Vraja by embracing them, caressing them and glancing lovingly at them as He smiled His broad, playful smiles. It was just as if a child were playing with his own reflection.- Their senses overwhelmed by the joy of having His physical association, the gopis could not prevent their hair, their dresses and the cloths covering their breasts from becoming disheveled. Their garlands and ornaments scattered, O hero of the Kuru dynasty.”  (source)

📚Shrimad Bhagavatam 10.29.45-46📚
Śrī Kṛṣṇa went with the gopīs to the bank of the Yamunā, where the sand was cooling and the wind, enlivened by the river’s waves, bore the fragrance of lotuses. There Kṛṣṇa threw His arms around the gopīs and embraced them. He aroused Cupid in the beautiful young ladies of Vraja by touching their hands, hair, thighs, belts and breasts, by playfully scratching them with His fingernails, and also by joking with them, glancing at them and laughing with them. In this way the Lord enjoyed His pastimes.”  (source)

📚Skanda Purana📚

📚Shrimad Bhagavatam 10.30.33-34📚
Certainly Kṛṣṇa sat down here with His girlfriend to arrange Her hair. The lusty boy must have made a crown for that lusty girl out of the flowers He had collected. [Śukadeva Gosvāmī continued:] Lord Kṛṣṇa enjoyed with that gopī, although He enjoys only within, being self-satisfied and complete in Himself. Thus by contrast He showed the wretchedness of ordinary lusty men and hardhearted women.”  (source)

📚Brahma Viavarta Purana Krishna Janma Khanda 52.27-32📚
Thereafter Janardana multiplied himself into many forms and enjoyed the love-sport with the cowherdess which are liked by the passionate damsels. Thereafter, passionate Krsna holding the hand of Radha reached in the pleasure-chamber which was built by Visvakarma and had the fragrance of sandal-paste, aguru, kasturl and saffron. He then enjoyed the company of Radha on the bed of campaka flowers. Krsna was well-versed in the love-sports and the Scriptures on love and he enjoyed the conjugal pleasures in many ways. O sage, thus both of them were engaged in each other companies for a long time. At that point of time their attraction towards the conjugal-pleasures could not be subsided. Thus Krsna was always anxious for love-sport and he in many forms enjoyed the company of the cowherdesses.”  (source)

📚Brahma Viavarta Purana Krishna Janma Khanda 29.1-10📚
Some passionate milk-maid said to Krishna, the lord of her life, “Krsna, wrap me in your yellow dress.” Someone said to Krisna, the Lord of the universe, “Lord, apply vermillion to my forehead.” Someone arrived there soon and said, “Lord, arrange the lock of my hair and bind my chignon.” Some milk-maid bent on her toilet deputed Krisna to fetch sandal foliage for her ear-rings. Someone by mysterious signs explained to him what was passing in her heart and with a face beaming with smiles looked at him soliciting sexual intercourse. Some milk-maids dragged him by force, snatched from his flute, took away his yellow dress, made him naked and smiled. Some dignified girl said to the conqueror of Madhu, “Lord, paint the nails of my feet with lac-dye.” Someone said affectionately to him, “O Lord of my life, paint my cheek and breast with lines of cosmetics of various colours.””  (source)

📚Brahma Viavarta Purana Krishna Janma Khanda 28.114-117📚
Lord Krsna enjoyed love-sports as is prescribed in the Kama-sastra, Whatever types of make-up was requited in the beginning, in the middle or the end of the love-sport by the cowherdesses, the lord used much more than that. With the scratches of the armlets of the cowherdesses and the paint of the feet, the body of lord Krsna looked quite beautiful like the charm of the mountain of red orchard. Thus with the completion of the divine dance all the gods together with their attendants end families reached the Rasamandala with curiosity. They were mounted over the chariots of gold and were surrounded by their attendants.”  (source)

📚Brahma Viavarta Purana Krishna Janma Khanda 46.61-71📚

Thereafter in seclusion, she offered the sandalpaste and garland then dragged Radha towards himself and placing her on the chest, he kissed her over her various limbs of the body. Radha also repeated similarly and embracing his beloved dragged him on the body. Thereafter, both of them started enjoying conjugal pleasure described in the treatises of love. All the limbs of the body of Radha were injured after which Radha was over-powered with sleep. After enjoying all the pleasures she was fainted. She was just breathing and her eyes were closed.”  (source)

📚Brahma Viavarta Purana Krishna Janma Khanda 28.137-143📚
Thereafter the lord unrobed Radhika…The lord embraced the unrobed Radhika and went beneath the water and enjoying the water sport again emerged over-the water. Radhika who was bending because of love-sport and was smiling getting unrobed, was dragged by Krsna an the water and displaying her reflection in the water of Yamuna, he took her out of it. The Radhika also caught hold of Krsna forcefully with a jump and snatching away his flute, she dragged him in anger for a long distance. She also unrobed him taking away his pitambara and also broke away the vanamala. She then started splashing water over him again and again. Thereafter Radhika dragged Hari in the deep water who was drowned there.”  (source)

📚Brahma Purana 81.39-40📚
At that time Krsna sported himself together with the cowherd lasses. Even when he was away from them for a moment they felt that period of time equal to acrore of years. Though prevented by their fathers, husbands and brothers the cowherdesses who were fond of sexual intercourse delighted Krsna during the nights.”  (source)

6. Krishna with his wives

📚Shrimad Bhagavatam 10.90.10-11📚
Under the drenched clothing of the queens, their thighs and breasts would become visible. The flowers tied in their large braids would scatter as they sprayed water on their consort, and on the plea of trying to take away His syringe, they would embrace Him. By His touch their lusty feelings would increase, causing their faces to beam with smiles. Thus Lord Kṛṣṇa’s queens shone with resplendent beauty. Lord Kṛṣṇa’s flower garland would become smeared with kuṅkuma from their breasts, and His abundant locks of hair would become disheveled as a result of His absorption in the game. As the Lord repeatedly sprayed His young consorts and they sprayed Him in turn, He enjoyed Himself like the king of elephants enjoying in the company of his bevy of she-elephants.”  (source)

📚Brahma Viavarta Purana Krishna Janma Khanda 112.32-34📚
The Brahmanas were served with food adoring Parvati at the same time. Thereafter in an auspicious time he married seven damsels named Kalindi, Satyabhama, Satya, Nagnijiti, Sati, Jambavati and Laksmana; several sons were born to them, ten sons and a daughter were born of each one of the queens.”  (source)

📚Brahma Viavarta Purana Brahma Khanda 4.23-25📚
Thereafter because of the arrows of love, the semen of Lord Krsna also fell but he placed the same in the water that assembly. After a thousand years it emerged in the form of an egg. From that egg a gigantic universal form came out, which happens to be the base of the entire Universe. His single hair-pit could accommodate a complete universe. It is harder than the hardest and nothing else is bigger than it.”  (source)

8. Krishna’s intercourse with the hump-back lady

📚Brahma Viavarta Purana Krishna Janma Khanda 72.56-69📚
Instead of waking all the attendants of Kubja, lord woke her up alone and spoke to the chaste lady. Lord Krsna said, ”O virtuous one, O beautiful one, wake up and let me enjoy the love-sport with you because in earlier birth you happened to be Surpanakha, the sister of Ravana. O damsel, during my incarnation as Rama you had performed the tapas for me. Influenced by those tapas I have taken to this form and have come to you as your beloved. Therefore, you serve me. Presently you enjoy all the pleasures with me and then proceed on to Goloka which destroys birth and death. Thus speaking lord Krsna embraced her and unrobing her, enjoyed her passionate advances. With a serene smile on her face, the passionate damsel felt shy at the first union but implanted a kiss on the lord. The lord took her in his lap like Laksmi. O Narada, the lord was well-versed in the art of making love and both of them did not rest during the physical union and they enjoyed the love-sport in various ways. Lord Krsna scratched her breasts and the pelvic region with the nails and also sucked her nectar-like lips. At the end of the night the lord implanted the semen in her womb after which the beautiful damsel fainted. In the lap of lord Krsna she lost the consciousness about day and night, heaven or earth, water or earth.”  (source)

📚Shrimad Bhagavatam 10.48.6-10📚
Calling forward His beloved, who was anxious and shy at the prospect of this new contact, the Lord pulled her by her bangled hands onto the bed. Thus He enjoyed with that beautiful girl, whose only trace of piety was her having offered ointment to the Lord. Simply by smelling the fragrance of Krsna’s lotus feet, Trivakrá cleansed away the burning lust Cupid had aroused in her breasts, chest and eyes. With her two arms she embraced between her breasts her lover, Sri Krsna, the personification of bliss, and thus she gave up her long-standing distress. Having thus gotten the hard-to-get Supreme Lord by the simple act of offering Him body ointment, unfortunate Trivakra submitted to that Lord of freedom the following request. [Trivakra said:] O beloved, please stay here with me for a few days more and enjoy. I cannot bear to give up Your association, O lotus- eyed one! Promising her the fulfilment of this lusty desire, considerate Krsna, Lord of all beings, paid Trivakra His respects and then returned with Uddhava to His own supremely opulent residence.”  (source)

📚Vishnu Purana 5.13📚

10. Krishna stole Gopis’s garments

📚Shrimad Bhagavatham 10.22.9-17📚
Taking the girls’ garments, He quickly climbed to the top of a kadamba tree. Then, as He laughed loudly and His companions also laughed, He addressed the girls jokingly. [Lord Krsna said:] My dear girls, you may each come here as you wish and take back your garments. I’m telling you the truth and am not joking with you, since I see you’re fatigued from executing austere vows. I have never before spoken a lie, and these boys know it. Therefore, O slender-waisted girls, please come forward, either one by one or all together, and pick out your clothes. Seeing how Krsna was joking with them, the gopis became fully immersed in love for Him, and as they glanced at each other they began to laugh and joke among themselves, even in their embarrassment. But still they did not come out of the water. As Sri Govinda spoke to the gopis in this way, His joking words completely captivated their minds. Submerged up to their necks in the cold water, they began to shiver. Thus they addressed Him as follows. [The gopis said:] Dear Krsna, don’t be unfair! We know that You are the respectable son of Nanda and that You are honored by everyone in Vraja. You are also very dear to us. Please give us back our clothes. We are shivering in the cold water. O Syamasundara, we are Your maidservants and must do whatever You say. But give us back our clothing. You know what the religious principles are, and if You don’t give us our clothes we will have to tell the king. Please! The Supreme Personality of Godhead said: If you girls are actually My maidservants, and if you will really do what I say, then come here with your innocent smiles and let each girl pick out her clothes. If you don’t do what I say, I won’t give them back to you. And even if the king becomes angry, what can he do? Then, shivering from the painful cold, all the young girls rose up out of the water, covering their pubic area with their hands.”  (source)

Along with learned Brāhmaṇas, he entered the lying-in-chamber and made them recite the Svastika prayers and the girl was duly named Rukmiṇī. O descendant of Bharata, she was proclaimed Rukmiṇī by the Brāhmaṇas then because she had a freckle golden in colour congenitally. As time passed on she became a girl of eight years. The king recollected the words of the unembodied being and became worried. ‘To whom shall I give this daughter? Who will be the four-armed one?’ In the meantime Damaghoṣa, the chieftain of Cedi came there from the excellent mountain Raivata.

Let prayer and offerings then be addressed to the mountain Govarddhana, and kill a victim in due form. Let the whole station collect their milk without delay, and feed with it the Brahmans and all who may desire to partake of it. When the oblations have been presented, and the Brahmans have been fed, let the Gopas circumambulate the cows, decorated with garlands of autumnal flowers. If the cowherds will attend to these suggestions, they will secure the favour of the mountain, of the cattle, and also mine.” When Nanda and the other Gopas heard these words of Krishńa, their faces expanded with delight, and they said that he had spoken well. “You have judged rightly, child,” exclaimed they; “we will do exactly as you have proposed, and offer adoration to the mountain.” Accordingly the inhabitants of Vraja worshipped the mountain, presenting to it curds and milk and flesh; and they fed hundreds and thousands of Brahmans, and many other guests, who came to the ceremony, even as Krishńa had enjoined: and when they had made their offerings, they circumambulated the cows and the bulls, that bellowed as loud as roaring clouds. Upon the summit of Govarddhana, Krishńa presented himself, saying, “I am the mountain,” and partook of much food presented by the Gopas; whilst in his own form as Krishńa he ascended the hill along with the cowherds, and worshipped his other self. Having promised them many blessings, the mountain-person of Krishńa vanished; and the ceremony being completed, the cowherds returned to their station.”  (source)

The high-souled descendants of Yadu, intoxicated by drinking wine, fought against each other and were extirpated in the presence of Kṛṣṇa and Balarām. Balarām then quitted his mortal coil; the lotus-eyed Bhagavān Kṛṣṇa quitted his life, struck by the arrows of a hunter, to pay respect to a Brāhmin’s curse. Vasudeva heard of Hari’s quitting his mortal coil, and meditated the Goddess of the Universe within his heart and left his holy life. Arjuna became very sorry; he went to Prabhāsa and performed the funeral obsequies of all duly. Seeing the dead body of Hari, Arjuna collected fuel and burnt his body together with his eight principal wives; he burnt also Balarām’s body with that of his wife Revatī. Arjuna, then, went to the Dvārakā city and removed all the inhabitants of the city when the whole Dwārkā city of Vāsudeva was drowned in the waters of the ocean. While Arjuna was taking all the persons with him after getting out of Dwārkā, he felt himself very weak on the way; and therefore a band of robbers, known by the name of Ābhīras plundered all the wealth and all the wives of Kṛṣṇa. Arjuna, of indomitable valour, after his arrival at Indraprastha made Vajra, Aniruddha’s son, the king of the place.”  (source)

📚Linga Purana 1.69.86-87📚
Kṛṣṇa abandoned the human form under the pretext of the arrow of the hunter Jaraka, and after blessing that hunter he returned to heaven. Due to the curse of Aṣṭāvakra as also due to his own Māyā (power) the wives of lord Kṛṣṇa were abducted by thieves.”  (source)

📚Devi Bhagavatam Purana 4.25.58-64📚
The good-looking S’amkara saying these words remained silent; then S’rî Krisna bowed down at the feet of Girijâ, the wife of S’amkara. Then the Goddess Pârvatî addressed repeatedly to Vâsudeva and said:– O mighty armed! O Krisna! O best of human beings! You will be the typical exemplary householder; (all people will try to follow you). When one hundred years will pass away, your race will be extinct, due to the curse of the Brâhmana and Gândhâri. Your sons and the other Yâdavas will lose their senses on drinking liquor; they will kill each other in the battle field and thus will be extirpated. You should know that there can be no remedy to what will inevitably come to pass; therefore no one is to grieve for them; this is all along my view. O Madhusûdana! After Your death, due to the curse of Astâvakra Muni, your wives will be forcibly stolen away by indomitable robbers. There is no doubt in this.”  (source)

Whilst the other 8 wives were immolated on Krishna’s funeral pyre,

📚Vishnu Purana 5.38.1-11📚
The eight queens of Kṛṣṇa, who have been named, with Rukminī at their head, embraced the body of Hari, and entered the funeral fire. Revatī also, embracing the corpse of Rāma, entered the blazing pile, which was cool to her, happy in contact with her lord. Hearing these events, Ugrasena and Anakadundubhi, with Devakī and Rohinī, committed themselves to the flames.”  (source)
