The Difference

Posted to Action Poetry

I suppose my first stumbling block is that I see a lot of those as completely different concepts. There's nothing poetic about manipulating someone by abusing their trust, but there's something wonderfully ironic when someone is tricked into getting what they deserve. Sex in and of itself is not a sin to me, but I see it as something different from fornication, which seems so detached and different. Lust is need I suppose, and need is beautiful, it's like a confession of dependency. So while lust is wrong, what it represents can be beautiful. I have very specific views I suppose. I think a lot ties to justice and implied consent (which by the way is generally the line between pornography and erotica--in erotica, there is implied consent).--violet9ish
