lust by summerfield


Lust, or lechery (carnal "luxuria") is an intense desire. Lust could be exemplified by the intense desire of money, food, fame, power or sex.

In Dante's Purgatorio, the penitent walks within flames to purge himself of lustful thoughts and feelings. In Dante's Inferno, unforgiven souls of the sin of lust are blown about in restless hurricane-like winds symbolic of their own lack of self-control to their lustful passions in earthly life.

in greek mythology, the beautiful leda was seduced by the god zeus, transforming himself into a swan. swans "are among the very few birds that have an intromittent organ similar in function to the male reproductive organ". that zeus was a horny lot as he had children with leda as well as with other lesser goddesses.

sorry, no selfstories about lust. :-D
