You did not quote that verse properly. Thay verse explicitly talks about sex. sex is promised to those who die in the cause of Allah (whatever that may be). That promise is repeated in several koranic passages and several Hadith.

51 Surely those who guard (against evil) are in a secure place,

52 In gardens and springs;

53 They shall wear of fine and thick silk, (sitting) face to face;

54 Thus (shall it be), and We will wed them with Houris pure, beautiful ones.

Again in Surah 56 the Prophet gives the glad tidings of the paradise to his followers and says

63 In both of them are two springs gushing forth.

64 Which then of the bounties of your Lord will you deny?

65 In both are fruits and palms and pomegranates.

66 Which then of the bounties of your Lord will you deny?

67 In them are goodly things, beautiful ones.

68 Which then of the bounties of your Lord will you deny?

69 Pure ones confined to the pavilions.

70 Which then of the bounties of your Lord will you deny?

71 Man has not touched them before them nor jinni.

72 Which then of the bounties of your Lord will you deny?

73 Reclining on green cushions and beautiful carpets.

74 Which then of the bounties of your Lord will you deny?

75 Blessed be the name of your Lord, the Lord of Glory and Honor!

In Surah 56 , there is promise of houris as well as youths that never age for the gratification of Muslim men.

11 These are they who are drawn nigh (to Allah),

12 In the gardens of bliss.

13 A numerous company from among the first,

14 And a few from among the latter.

15 On thrones decorated,

16 Reclining on them, facing one another.

17 Round about them shall go youths never altering in age,

18 With goblets and ewers and a cup of pure drink;

19 They shall not be affected with headache thereby, nor shall they get exhausted,

20 And fruits such as they choose,

21 And the flesh of fowl such as they desire.

22 And pure, beautiful ones,

23 The like of the hidden pearls:

24 A reward for what they used to do.

I believe this should suffice to prove that not only Allah promises "virgin houris" to the righteous Muslims but also "never-aging boys" as white as pearls.

There are also several hadith that confirm sex in paradise. Hadith are the sayings of the Prophet. The following are few of them

Sahih Bukhari Volume 6, Book 60, Number 402

Narrated Abdullah bin Qais:

Allah's Apostle said, "In Paradise there is a pavilion made of a single hollow pearl sixty miles wide, in each corner of which there are wives who will not see those in the other corners; and the believers will visit and enjoy them. And there are two gardens, the utensils and contents of which are made of silver; and two other gardens, the utensils and contents of which are made of so-and-so (i.e. gold) and nothing will prevent the people staying in the Garden of Eden from seeing their Lord except the curtain of Majesty over His Face."
