    Humans have hair.. pigs are just about naked.

    But why should i be forced into a nudist colony because some men can't control their lust at what is a natural state?

    The human body is not sex, if you want to know the difference please PM me

    Do you think men have less control of their lust than women?

    Those verses don't address this question.

    I don't know about you but my body does not grow its own clothes. :p

    You haven't seen mine at 75. :eek:

    Where you might hear "Hey, is that Dick Brown over there?".

    Been there, done that, and my wife and I even got caught once on a beach at night in Canada. OK, so I wasn't a saint.:( But I am now!:rolleyes:

    Fat, thin, young, old, human bodies are beautiful... twisted limbs, wrinkles, scaring add character and tell a story.

    Reminds me of a passage from Robert Heinlein's book A Stranger in a Strange Land". If I have the time and ability I might see if I can quote from it.

    Which is why men (and some ladies far past the point) need to be able to hold women in rightful indignation when they cause such a reaction in us:rolleyes: It is all your fault:p Oh, and lets not forget us poor old farts who are merely jealous.

    One merely has to shop for the "right" judge:rolleyes:

    At least that was the way that it used to be. It is getting so hard to find appropriate judges these days. Well unless one lives in Alabama:D

    I was just going by your list...

    I wouldn't relegate lust to just men (as I have mentioned before). The issue, in my view, is age appropriate. We don't let a 14 year old drive for a reason. We don't let our 10 year old drink alcohol for a reason. We don't show naked bodies to 12 year olds for a reason. As a married man, I don't go around naked for a reason.

    What has age to do with it? You were born naked

    And whats with the sex link, the body is not sex, its the mind that drives that

    This is going to be in a spoiler for TMI...and possible child abuse cuz I dont know if it was child abuse or not?
    When I was 7 my granddad used to watch porn all the time where me and my 3 siblings could see it. He would watch it on the tv while we were in the room.I dont know if this is considered child abuse or not but many years later when I was living with my aunt and uncle both of my brothers were removed from my aunts care as they were caught screwing each other. When this supposedly started my younger brother was 6 and my older brother 8. I dont think porn is healthy for children to consume for this reason.

    This is true. The body is not sex.

    You will have the think about that especially in today's cultural context.

    Yes... I would call it child abuse. In today's society, however, it is becoming the norm and it is messing the minds of our children. Unsupervised internet capacity has open the floodgates. People who promote porn actually try to bypass firewalls to reach children.

    That really makes no sense at all. Porn sites need money. Kids do not have money and if they get caught stealing Daddy's credit card it is only a nightmare for the porn companies. Catering to children is simply not in their best interests. And trust me, boys will find out about porn sites no matter what. They do not need to try to recruit anyone.

    Precisely what i was saying, some people just cannot control themselves, probably due to thousands of years of religious indoctrination

    I think it is more "people" than religious. Religion tries to stop lust (though unsuccessful) - it isn't the cause of it.

    Thousands of years of repression is what bottles it up and turns it into what it has become.
