Re: The Art of Attraction (Sex Thread)
Where do you draw the line between sexual attraction and lust?
I actually agree with Mr. Fish here. Sexual attraction becomes lust when you dwell on what sexual thoughts sporadically enter your mind. A shorter way to put it would be sexual indulgement.
Is porn wrong?
I think of it as conditional:
- If you don't plan on entering any type of long-term relationship for the rest of your life, whatever. You're only watching people who agreed to it, anyway.
- Otherwise: One of the essentials to ensuring a successful relationship is commitment. And the best way of establishing a habit that shows commitment is by avoiding acts of lust (i.e. indulgement), which includes watching porn.
I emphasize that the reason I make two cases is that I don't believe the first case is harmful. With no intention of having a long-term relationship, you're not harming your relationship with any future partners. And again, what porn is done is done by those who agree to it. Of course, it'd be different if the porn watched involved someone who was tricked/forced into a sex act (e.g. children).
