But I have to admit it was not to make a baby and become closer to her, it was because she was a real fox and I wanted to "be with" her! Is it wrong that I think lustfully of my wife (12 years this March) this way? I think I read in Christopher West's book that I need to crucify my lustful thoughts? That sex is for unity and babies but not really just to scratch an itch? I love my wife and she is a babe, but maybe I am wrong in thinking this way?
You're kidding, right? I see you're a new poster. This wouldn't be a bait post would it? If it isn't I hope you got in the shower too. If it is, well I won't say because I'll get a red flag from the umpire.

Get a grip girls!

I need to ask you something.

David Beckam is gradually covering himself in tattoos. As a man I find tattoos very disfiguring. Interesting, but disfiguring. And I have these horrible visions of tattooed people in old age, not looking so tough any more and with their tattoos hanging down around their ankles. It always makes me wonder whether a person who gets so many actually likes themselves. After all, if you like your own God given body, why spoil it by covering it with inked pictures? And I gotta say, a woman with tattoos sets off alarm bells in my head. Her attractiveness is diminished.

Don't tattoos spoil David Beckam's look?

Haha, I'll have to agree about tattoos. I'm not a huge fan of them either, but to each their own I suppose!

My late father-in-law was in the navy in WWII sitting on some scow out in the Pacific for about 23 months. He and his fellows got ashore somewhere and he got a tat of a Fighting Seebee on his left forearm. When I first met him in 1971 it was clearly discernable. When he passed away 4 years ago it was a blue blob. In other words, the ink migrated over time into a non-discernable ink blot.

By the time Beckham reaches 80 his skin will be a blob of ink. Of course, he may not care what he looks like by then.

John, your not jealous here are you? You seem to wanna distract the ladies from the fact that someone is good looking..

anyway.. I don't like pictures of anyone wearing underwear in public, unless they are on the beach - and the beach is not for people who don't know how to concentrate on faces instead of peoples private parts.. The body should only be seen by one self and the spouse alone.

I think the OP's best point of reference is to go speak to a priest who may help him discern what kind of thoughts he was having. I would also like to point out, however, that having a thought is not sinful accepting and lingering on it is.

I think it's good to question the morality of our actions, and that a spirit cannot grow without questioning the motives and nature of their actions, however it is important not to become scrupulous.

I'm not a big tattoo fan, but he's still really cute. I've been a fan of his since Man United

I thought Megan Fox was gorgeous until she had plastic surgery. Now she just looks...well...plastic and fake.

Kate Upton...now I am super jealous of her!!!

I guess I see what you mean...



Though I must say she was gorgeous then and she's gorgeous now, IMHO. Lol, I have no complaints on her looks, only that she makes me so jealous!
