I dont think that it is bad nessacarily. I think that you should resist such thoughts, but acting upon the urge is its falling into temptation, are you so weak minded that if you see a gurl thats bad beyond all that you can't keep your eesh in ya pants and just have a conversation with her?

Side: yes

It depends on if said person is your spouse or not. If he/she is, then it is fine.

Yes it's wrong. Ofcourse it's wrong.

I do it all the time. It's like drinking alcohol or smoking or something. We all know it's bad for us and the world would be a better place without it... but fuck it ehh??

Yes it's wrong. Ofcourse it's wrong.

Why?

I do it all the time.

Unrequited I imagine.

It's like drinking alcohol or smoking or something.

Are you implying that it is somehow bad for one's health?

We all know it's bad for us and the world would be a better place without it

If by "better" you mean devoid of humans then you are correct.

but fuck it ehh?

There is nothing to "fuck it ehh?" about. One should not apologise for following a biological imperative.

There is nothing "bad" about human nature. Why do religious people hate people so much?

Side: No

No, it is not bad to lust for a man or woman because, simply put, it is human nature. It is perfectly normal for an individual to be attracted to someone physically and express them in a passionate manner. That physical attraction without emotional attachment is what makes this lust and not love. However, I feel it's only acceptable if the individual isn't committed to someone else, because that would make it cheating, which is a whole different story.

Side: No

I think the debate creator is talking about lusting for another person in the biblical sense, whereby you don't actually do anything, you just look at somebody and think to yourself...oh yeah (and that of course is the same thing as adultery in the Bible, so after you do that, you can look forward to the fiery lake and torture forever, etc).

Side: No

i like how you distort things from the bible. the lusting talking about in the bible is like looking at pornography or having sexual fantasies over some one you saw. like you want the girl you saw to do sexual things for you. things like that. there's nothing wrong with being attracted to some one and admitting their pretty.

Lust (in homo-sapiens at any rate) is the driving force behind reproduction, without such a strong ingrained need to lust after the opposite sex (or the same sex, as it may be, although that doesn't really aid reproduction) we most likely wouldn't be here today - we are all, nearly every one of us the product of lust. So, in my opinion, the question is a little absurd. I think the only things that can really be classed as 'bad' are those that harm, take advantage of or deprive others - greed, hate, irresponsibility, selfishness - can, I think, all be classed as 'bad' (although bad, good, evil etc. are all such implicitly subjective terms I much prefer to refer to such things as undesirable).

So short answer: no, it is perfectly natural to lust over others and we, as a species, wouldn't be around today if it weren't for such urges.

So obviously animals have lust

Also gays having lust kind of defeats the whole reproduction concept.

Side: yes

So obviously animals have lust

They also move, respire, eat and sleep. Are we to refrain from doing these things?

Also gays having lust kind of defeats the whole reproduction concept.

The morality behind Homosexuality is a separate issue.

No,I don't think it's bad to lust for a man/woman. It's natural,as humans,we are going to do it. Even if it's a person you eventually end up marrying,you still lusted for them at one time or another. Chances are,you're physically attracted to that person,and that is considered lust,believe it or not. So go on and lust away,just try to avoid doing it too much,then it becomes not so good

What's wrong with something that's going to motivate you to create more babies?

Side: No

Are you seriously asking whether it is wrong for humans to act like humans? I think anybody who would suggest that sexual attraction (and the inevitable fantasies) is wrong is a self-repressed, religious freak. Why do people place such limits on themselves? I think that a human who feels no form of attraction to other humans is wrong.

Side: No

I think i should retract my statement in the debate on Bin Laden about you belonging in a more unawakened time, i have to admit i was wrong, and i couldn't agree more with what you just wrote.

I think lust is very important for any kind of sexual relationship. if there isnt any lust then you guys aren't going to want to get it on with each other. and if you are one of those "hit it and quit it" types then being lustful can lead to very hot, kinky, sweaty, amazing sex

Side: No
