Lust is an emotional and passionate feeling that you experience for someone. When you experience lust for someone, you fantasize about that person, usually in a sexual way. Lust is an erotic desire for someone. The word lust is phonetically similar to the ancient roman word, “lustrum”. The word “lust” was first used in the 16th century in the Protestant Reformation phase.
In the words of Baroness Orczy, “A surging, seething, murmuring crowd of beings that are human only in name, for to the eye and ear they seem naught but savage creatures, animated by vile passions and by the lust of vengeance and of hate.”
Lust has several meanings. It means having a personal inclination or longing for someone. It means unbridled sexual desire or lasciviousness. In the words of Tori Amos, “In our minds, love and lust are really separated. It's hard to find someone that can be kind and you can trust enough to leave your kids with, and isn't afraid to throw her man up against the wall and lick him from head to toe.” Lust should not drive you towards something that is morally or ethically incorrect.
