HMMMM, I feel a little left out as a heterosexual female. I don't lust after my neighbr's wife.

I've seen some pretty sexy pictures of Jesus and his half naked, buffed out, sweaty bod. It can't be a sin if I'm think aout those penetrating eyes and tricked out set of six pack abs of Jesus' is it?

What if I use a cucifix instead of vibrator?

this thread is rather funny.
i cant understand why god would give people certain urges then place it in the sin pile.


like a previous poster put' Does anyone else think that sex being a religious taboo is mainly due to the texts being written by jealous old men bitter because they couldn't get any? ''
i think this is the hole reason for it.

look at all the religious leader and representives that have been found out over pedophilia and abuse ie magdalene laundries in ireland.
i sometimes onder if all the sexual frustration is the cause the nuns might have been so wound up they took there frutrations on innocent women same for those poor young boys and girls.

also im curious are there any mention of female matibation in the bible or koran.
just curious, not being crude or anything but would be interesting to find out as women generally dont 'spill' anything unle you ee some crazy porn

Lust is a desire that borders on animalistic


This is a problem how exactly? You are aware that human beings are animals right?



And Christ tightens that by saying "how can you love your neighbour if you aspire to sleep with his wife?"


Quite easily actually. I see no reason why someone cannot fantasize about anything they want to fantasize about and still love each other without issue. What Jesus is setting up here is very reminiscent of the commandment which states that we shouldn't covet our neighbors wife/slave/goods. It is a thought crime in other words, it puts restrictions on what we are allowed to desire and I feel that that is fundamentally immoral



if we lived in a truly barbaric society, where honour and respect had no place, and all that mattered was self pleasure and biological reproduction, sentiments such as you opine would be reasonable.


All I'm saying is that the mere act of fantasy should not be a sin. There is something wrong with actually sleeping with someone else's spouse but to suggest that mere lust is the equivalent of being unfaithful is absurd. That's like saying a guy standing in a bank fantasizing about robbing it might as well have already robbed it.

From a biological perspective reproduction or replication is the main function of any organism. We humans happen to have big brains which means that we have a larger range of behavior, we can and do choose to spend our time doing other things. The point is that sexual desire is crucial to the survival of the species, without lust NONE of us would be here.



Christ's words would have meaning


I don't think so. Maybe Jesus has a point in passing that if you respect someone you probably shouldn't be thinking about their wife all the time but to suggest that if you do think of the wife you're somehow committing a sin or doing something as serious as adultery is absurd.

Excellent post, you said everything that I really don't have the time or energy to put into worlds, but either way spot on.

If people could masturbate and think of steaks, monster trucks, or power tools then no, it would not be a sin.



Mhhhhhhhhhh, monster trucks...brb


Is it a sin to masturbate while thinking of someone else's monster truck? Does the monster truck have leather seats? What kind of mileage? Is it a "hemi"? Is it a "dirty" monster truck? Or was it freshly washed and waxed? Not that I'm into that, just truck curious. Well, there was that one time back in college........


Sir, back away away from the KY jelly.


I said that out loud? Sorry! By the way, that's not KY, it's Turtle Wax. I'm just sayin'.

Misinterpretations? The information I provided is very clear. If you think it's misinterpreted, that's your opinion. I've read all of the websites and the book is clearly flawed. Excuses don't justify the errors that are evident in the babble.

Males do not need to think of any real person to masterbate.

Get it females. No matter what that males tastes, they do not need to think of any real person.

I tried the monster truck thing, didn't do the trick for me...I'm more into tall, slim automobiles like limos.


"Not that there's anything wrong with that!"

But wait, are you saying I now have to buy a monster truck so I can fantasize about it??


No, you can do an Elliot Spitzer and rent one. I know, I've given this too much thought.

Either that or theres always monster trucks
