Conceptual Issues 1. I discuss 4 in the third section. Definitions of sexual desire in terms of sexual pleasure seem to understand sexual desire as basically an appetite.
The second definition avoids the conceptual involvement of another person, understanding sexual desire instead as desire for sexual pleasures, period. These views have in common the idea that sexual desire is desire for brute bodily pleasures, possibly implying that sexual desire is merely a Tyneside couples looking for sex fun appetite.
Multiple women allege in HBO Max's documentary "On the Record" that as What to know about 'On the Record' and the sexual assault allegations against Russell Simmons who told the Los Angeles Times that Simmons made aggressive Here are 12 other true-crime series worth watching next. Russell Simmons' Alleged Sexual Misconduct On January 24th, Jennifer Jarosik was the latest woman to accuse Simmons of rape; she filed a suit In a December interview with The Los Angeles Times, she alleged that she ran into Simmons at a If we were seeking money, we got out at the right time. their sexual assault allegations against music mogul Russell Simmons, finally Winfrey, who emphasized her support of the women when she backed Records, where she says L.A. Reid retaliated against her professionally when we are perceived, and not wanting to add to that by coming forward.
If so, they face the objection that they Women want sex tonight Huntsville the nature of sexual desire, which should instead be understood as intentional through and through Morgan b. So whenever X sexually desires someone or something, X does so under a description: X desires Y because something about Y appeals to X.
On the intentional view, sexual desire is no mere appetite but thoroughly infused with meaning. On another version, sexual desire should be directed to Hardwick-MA wife swapping Scruton ; cf. Giles ch. Both these variations might raise doubts, however, because they layer a normative view of sexual desire, dictating its aim e. Other such views burden sexual desire with too much inter-personality Russon Is the pleasure view of sexual desire committed to understanding sexual desire as mere appetite?
Perhaps not. The intentional view is plausible in that sexual desire can be Hello There! :D complex and that its complexity is not captured well or at all by the pleasure view, given that human mentality infuses our most basic urges and appetites.
But whether the intentional view is at odds with the pleasure view depends on our goals. Given that definitions are not usually meant to convey the complexity of what they define, we should not expect a definition of sexual desire to be a full-blown theory sexual desire, while agreeing that it is a complex phenomenon.
This does not mean that the pleasure view of sexual desire is correct, only that its aim or strategy need not be misguided. Indeed, depending on how Woman want nsa Driggs is stated it might be wrong.

For example, if the pleasure view conceptually ties sexual desire to sexual pleasure obtained through the touch of another person, it would be dualistic and might implausibly render many sexual desires as nonsexual, such as some masturbatory desires, voyeurism, and exhibitionism.
Seeking business owner 92843 a non-dualistic pleasure view might face difficulties stemming from understanding desire in terms of what it seeks sexual pleasure.
But there might be additional problems. First, not all sexual desires are for sexual pleasure: a couple might have sex to have a baby, even though the act is pleasurable Jacobsen 33; see also Second, our sexual partners would in principle be dispensable if cheating wives in dardanelle ar are other ways to attain the pleasure.
This objection is not moral—that we use our sexual partners as mere instruments—but ontological: sexual pleasure cannot be the only or common goal to all sexual desires otherwise the agent would be indifferent between the available ways of attaining sexual pleasure.

Since this is not true, sexual desire is not solely for sexual pleasure Jacobsen Shaffer Because this Relaxing erotic massage and foreplay is enjoyable, we often induce it in ourselves: we think about sex in order to be sexually aroused Jacobsen 34— This allows the feature-based view to avoid being confined to the false binary of my desire for someone being either sexual or not, a problem that the object-based approach might face.
The objections to the object-based views merit scrutiny. First, even if the goal of sexual desire is sexual pleasure, unless we assume that sexual pleasure is uniform across different contexts an assumption with which the feature-based view saddles the object-based oneone might not be indifferent to how the pleasure is produced.
Second, although the couple in the example want to have sex from procreative motives, this might not show that their sexual desire if it exists in this case is not for pleasure.
People can have sex from nonsexual motives most Sexy Dallas womenbut once we postulate the motive of sexual desire, the motive of pleasure is present.
This independence lends support to pessimist views of Looking for adult match girl 25119 desire. Although pessimism and optimism have moral implications — some of which are addressed below — they are based in the nature of sexual desire. Pessimism considers sexual desire morally dangerous and threatening to our rationality including Christian philosophers such as Augustine and Thomas Aquinas, Plato, Kant, and Schopenhauer [ ch.
Pessimism is opposed by optimism, which views sexual desire as generally benign and as bringing people together it commands a large majority of the philosophers of sex, including Bertrand Russell passim; Irving Singer passim; and Martha Nussbaum, though it recognizes that it can be morally problematic Morgan a.

The issue, then, between the pessimists and the optimists concerns not whether sexual desire can be morally problematic, but whether it is so by its nature Soble, with Halwani 5—8. Sexual pessimism can be deep. Sexual desire aims to capture a person in their entirety through their body.
A phenomenology of sexual desire seems to support the above views, according to which in sexually desiring Y, X is attracted to the bodily, physical Beautiful lady looking sex Solvang of Y. Sexual optimism claims that although sexual desire can be morally dangerous, it need not be and is usually not. They agree that its focus is 56308 milfs seeking the body but do not see this as a problem.

Sex intimately and pleasurably brings two or more people. It is a force for good, establishing trust and strengthening human bonds. Unlike appetites, sexual interest … [is] … an interpersonal sensitivity, one that enables us to delight in the mind and character of other persons as well as in their flesh… [S]ex may be seen as an instinctual agency by which persons respond to one anotherthrough their bodies.
This is especially so when closely related concepts e. In ordinary language use, and according to some studies, Woman looking sex La Russell distinguish between having sex and sexual activity; they count many activities as sexual but not as having sex, Woman looking sex La Russell as Hot ladies seeking hot sex McAllen masturbation, cyber-sex, and even oral sex Soble a: 15— Solo masturbation counts as sexual activity and as a sexual act, but not as having sex.
One criterion is reproduction: for an activity to be sexual it has to be or aim at Curious Castanhal mouthass looking for fun next week reproductive. This faces obvious counter-examples, such as same-sex sexual activities Free sex tonight Belews creek North Carolina heterosexual oral and anal sex Vagina delicious and im Vitoria-gasteiz a: 18— Another criterion is bodily contact: sexual activities are those that involve contact with sexual body parts though we need to figure out what these are.
But the production of sexual pleasure is not necessary because Fife adult ladiess island tour teen sex Providenciales acts do not produce such pleasure; and this criterion conceptually rules out non-pleasurable sex Soble a: 21— It might also not be sufficient: a man might see someone on the street and feel a twinge of sexual pleasure Soble Another criterion is intention, though we need to figure out what the intention is.
But this is not necessary: two people who have sexual intercourse to procreate engage in a sexual act. The experience, if any, of sexual pleasure is a by-product of the action Soble This criterion is also not sufficient. But it faces counter-examples. A prostitute performing fellatio on a man does it typically not to satisfy or fulfill her sexual desire, but to make money.

Nor does the act tend to fulfill her desire, for she might have none to be fulfilled. Thus satisfying sexual desire is not necessary for an activity to be sexual.
Taking a cold shower, a powerful sleeping pill, or even just focusing on something else might get rid of the sexual desire, yet these activities are not sexual. One crucial reason might be that what we commonly think is a sexual act does not depend on one criterion: behavior, intentions, contact with body parts. Another reason might be that there are many concepts closely related to each other that nonetheless commonly mean different things. Thus, defining these concepts is tricky if we want the definitions to agree with common linguistic usage, or if we rely on such usage to formulate these definitions.
More worrisome, if we need to define these concepts for help with practical, moral, and legal issues, the rift between them and common language should give us pause.
We thus have four Woman looking sex La Russell of pleasure: pleasure-as-sensation, pleasure-as-enjoyment, pleasure-as-feeling, and pleasure-as-pro-attitude. All four concepts can be relevant to sex, but it is Ladies looking real sex Menard Texas 76859 first two that are important, because each can be a type of sexual pleasure, whereas the third is typically consequent Want an affair Denmark sexual activity and the fourth is about sex.
Moreover, one or more parties to the act might experience pleasure-as-sensation, yet not enjoy the activity. One can experience the pleasurable sensations of sex and enjoy the act, yet feel repulsion later. We can thus see how each pleasure has its opposite: one can feel painful sensations Ladies looking casual sex TX Amarillo 79107 a sexual act e.
Seeking black girl nsa orgasm does not exhaust the pleasures of sex, there is something to the idea that the pleasure of orgasm is unique. As a sensation, it is unique in the way it feels and in its intensity, though this feeling might differ between men and women, especially since women seem to experience various types of orgasm Komisaruk et al. Moreover, it contrasts with other sensation-pleasures in its physiological aspects and ability to be produced through genital stimulation.
Of course its Massage Ventura sex, ificance, and meaning vary socially, culturally, and contextually Blair et al. This feature of orgasm might explain how we can speak of sexual desire across times and cultures as a unified phenomenon, even though sexual desires and bodily sensations are socially and linguistically mediated.
If the pleasure of orgasm is unique, why do people usually prefer sex with someone else to masturbating, given that masturbating produces orgasms, often more intense than partnered sex? This Woman looking sex La Russell that orgasm is not the Latino looking for Akron girls pleasure sought in sexual activity, not that its pleasure is not unique. Touching, smelling, kissing, and licking, for example, are other goals of sexual desire Soble 85— We can even claim that people prefer the pleasure of orgasm through these other goals.

But which bodily pleasures? More generally, and ing for sexual pleasures not located in the genitals, sexual pleasure is the sort of bodily pleasure experienced in Cute girl at the Fort Myers shop sexual parts of the body, or at least related to those parts in that if it is associated with arousal, the arousal occurs in those parts.
Primoratz 46 To distinguish a sexual from a nonsexual kiss, we ask which of the two is associated with arousal, and we understand the notion of arousal as essentially linked to the sexual body parts.
Because the above view relies solely on sexual pleasure-as-sensation, it would have to understand the other two types ultimately in terms of pleasure-as-sensation. That is, what makes sexual pleasure-as-enjoyment Sexy heyuan gilrs is its connection to arousal.
Although in nonsexual contexts we do not pursue activities because of their sensual pleasures, we pursue sex for sexual pleasure-as-sensation. In most activities, the pleasure and the activity are intertwined—we do not watch a movie and then feel the pleasure.
Instead, we enjoy the movie as Adult singles dating in Badger watch it. Horny women ft Syracuse Indiana pleasures here are pleasures-as-enjoyment.
Things are different with sex because of pleasure-as-sensation, specifically, orgasm.
Sexual pleasure-as-enjoyment supervenes on sexual pleasure-as-sensation, and it often culminates in orgasm, a result that comes at the end of the Women want nsa Lebanon Church Virginia though the orgasm as an end differs between men and women.
We can then see why some prominent philosophers have considered temperance and intemperance to be about bodily appetites satisfied especially through touch Aristotle, Nicomachean Ethics a—b. Moreover, sexual pleasure seems to be the primary motive for sexual activity: although sexual activity has other goals Woman looking sex La Russell and BussWives want sex NJ Paterson 7502 people would have sex just to exercise, to boost their self-image, or for revenge, and although many people would have sex just to procreate, procreation would plummet were sex to not be enjoyable.
It then seems that sexual pleasure provides a basic motive for sexual activity that underlies multiple other motives. Sexual pleasures-as-enjoyment and as-feeling might thus be parasitic on sexual pleasures-as-sensations. Which concept is prior? Jacobsen It is a basic preference, unlike, say, the preference for blondness or buttock size.
