ON SEX AND LUST
Sex is a necessary instinct and function. The sexual instinct or LIBIDO as outlined
by Freud understands no social norms, criminal code or preformed ideologies. So you see homosexuality, lesbianism, incest,
pedophilia rampant in society.
So all that man tends to eventually think of is to court, cohabitate and fornication.
This instinct is what tends to direct human life. Eventually of course everything is governed by Cerebral Cortex. You have
to learn to make your Cortex dominant over your Hypothalamus.
Sex is one of the most natural cravings, unlike a desire for owning a BMW. Ape mans
only hobby was to fornicate. The leader of the pack did not have the maximum assets or own maximum companies, but courted
the maximum women in the pack. He could do so because he was strongest one in the pack and dominated others.
Today sexual repression is a unseen force that many a time drives individuals to achieve.
The competitive urges, the desire to top and win all are manifestations of repressed sexual instincts. Many women binge and
gain weight substituting sexual instincts with food cravings.
When sexual desire becomes overwhelming and tends to destroy ones sanity and threatens
to take away peace, it may be termed as Lust.
Sexual desire must be identified, and may be temporarily treated by a) Moderation in
desire b) Satisfaction with what one has c) Self satisfaction. Permanent therapy
is contemplation and understanding of ones mind and behavior.
