Difference between sex thought and sexual attraction


#1

Hello everyone.

Is thinking about how a women's hormones smell good and holding her hand a bad thought? Of course when thoughts of being sexual with her come up, those are to be shunned. But, is it sexually perverted to think of kissing her on the side of the cheek, or is that not possible without thinking pervertedly? These are shunned and fought against just to be sure. Of course these thoughts tend to be in the morning and some consent is lost because of the brain being tiered. But when sexual thoughts came up those were shunned.
