I honestly don't think that's the case, you can get aroused because that's perfectly normal, it's acting out in that arousal where the problem kicks in, or if you're viewing a person only for sexual gratification.

Remember, God doesn't hate sex, he created it!! We have it for a reason, but we must be wise when we choose to do so.

Those who are not married are not to be seeking to get aroused or consenting to sexual pleasure.
Those books will explain God's plan for human sexuality which is what the OP seems to be confused about.

(One note though on this reading...I would note that when they say "as soon as he begins to enjoy.." under "pure intent"... it would mean before knowing consent...)
this will help --it is a good summary of principles for the unmarried.

Is there any conflict between what you said there and the Baltimore Catechism?
384. Q. What is forbidden by the ninth Commandment?
A. The ninth Commandment forbids unchaste thoughts, desires of anothers wife or husband, and all other unlawful impure thoughts and desires.

385. Q. Are impure thoughts and desires always sins?
A. Impure thoughts and desires are always sins, unless they displease us and we try to banish them.

So tired of all this....Nearly every single thing that makes a Catholic a Catholic today are the types of SEX they reject. SEX SEX SEX. It's always, always all about SEX. Nothing else...it all comes back to SEX.

Aren't there other things Christianity covers??? Or is it all about friggin semen being in the right friggin place at the right friggin time?? That's friggin disgusting. I have bigger issues to work on. Sometimes I think about doing things because it helps me cope with not doing it in real life, and I'm not just talking about sex. I many times entertain thoughts of beating the **** out of my little brother so that I don't do it for real.

It comes down to charity. What we do in thought then may also become word or action. To live like Christ we must be charitable in thought, word, and deed.
