I have a friend who likes to look at images of muscular and athletic women. When I brought up to him that he may be committing the mortal sin of lust, which I have fallen for, he told me that he wasn’t being lustful, he was just admiring how beautiful and athletic they were and how he wished he had a girlfriend like one of them so they could work out together.
He did say that he acknowledges that there are some accounts that, yes, are inappropriate and sexual in nature. He stays away from those, and only follows the accounts where the girls wear somewhat modest gym clothes, and either flex in the mirror or show you how to workout.
He also asked me if it was lustful if he dreamed about his crush. He doesn’t know if she is already taken, and he tells me that the dreams are never sexual, the only thing that is even close to that would be that they hug and kiss each other every once in a while. Nothing naughty right?
Any tips to avoid the sin of lust or anything like that would help him a bunch. I don’t feel that my explanations answered his questions.
