Thank you Jane.What you said here:

"For me, I see my lust as an element of my being. I accept it and on occasion give in to it so long as the spirit of my intent is neither harmful to myself nor another"

is exactly what i am talking about.

Lust is neither good nor bad. It just Is.What we do with it, how we respond to it, is the true issue.Will this cause harm, or benefit, or neither, or both???
