It's copied straight out of Vaishnavism. Of course, the BKs being the BKs claim the Vashnavites copied them.
The BKs make no mention of this because it embarrasses their "everything is a memorial of what happened in the Confluence Age" theory but the entire Krishna (Lekhraj Kirpalani) saga is wrought with steamy eroticism. When Lekhraj Kirpalani was bathing with half-naked followers, lying around, massaging them and nibble food from their lips ... he was playing out some Krishna fantasy of his (and theirs). The archetype would have been ingrained within their mind. It's worth loosely listen through the video below and matching it with the facts we know; and working out from it what was going through Lekhraj Kirpalani's mind and why, in the absence of Shiva within the religion, why he called them his "gopis" and brides and why there was all the take of "husband". It's from the Śrīmad Bhāgavatam 10.22.
- Never mind "remembering God, what about Lekhraj Kirpalani remember his wife?
Krishna, knowing the minds of the unmarried young gopis, blessed them with their desired objective. They had prayed for Krishna to become their husband and Krishna wanted to fulfil their desires.
Taking the girls' garments, He quickly climbed to the top of a kadamba tree. Then, as He laughed loudly and addressed the girls jokingly.
My dear girls, you may each come here as you wish and take back your garments ... Therefore, O slender-waisted girls, please come forward, either one by one or all together, and pick out your clothes.
Seeing how Krishna was joking with them, the gopīs 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.
