We need Lust to Create Love
Love and lust are often seen as two opposite ends of a spectrum. While love is associated with commitment, trust, and emotional bonding, lust is often portrayed as a primal, physical desire that is more focused on pleasure than emotional connection. However, the truth is that lust and love are closely intertwined, and one cannot exist without the other. I strongly believe that lust is, in fact, the very being of love, and we need lust to create love.
At its core, lust is a powerful biological drive that motivates us to seek out physical pleasure and reproduction. It is an instinctual response that is deeply ingrained in our evolutionary makeup. When we feel lust towards someone, we are drawn to their physical appearance, their scent, and their body language. We want to touch, kiss, and have sex with them. This primal urge is what leads us towards the initial stages of a romantic relationship, without it the attraction can’t happen in the first place.
However, lust alone is not enough to sustain a relationship. As humans, we crave emotional connection and intimacy. We want to feel understood, valued, and cared for. This is where love comes in, we were discussing it with my close friend and we both agreed without lust then we can’t have love, especially in romantic relationships. Love is the emotional and psychological connection that forms when two people are drawn to each other beyond just physical attraction. It is a deep, meaningful bond that can only be formed through sustained emotional investment and commitment.
Love cannot exist without Lust
But here’s the catch: love cannot exist without lust. When we feel lust towards someone, it creates a powerful emotional charge that draws us towards them. This physical attraction can spark an emotional connection that grows into love. Lust is what drives us to initiate and sustain a relationship, and it is what keeps the fire burning even when the initial infatuation wears off.
In other words, lust is the fuel that ignites the flame of love, I can’t even imagine not being lustful towards my partner, it’s the juice of the relationship. It provides the initial spark of attraction that draws us towards someone, and it keeps us engaged and invested in the relationship. Without lust, love can become stagnant and unfulfilling. We need the physical desire that lust provides to keep our relationships alive and thriving.
Of course, it is important to note that lust alone is not enough to sustain a healthy relationship. When we fight and even behave badly in the relationship, love keeps a couple together, so love is critical in a relationship. A relationship must be balanced with emotional connection, trust, and commitment. But without lust, love can become dry, passionless, and unfulfilling. Lust is not just a physical desire; it is an essential component of our emotional and psychological makeup. It is the very being of love.
In conclusion, lust and love are not two opposing forces, but rather two sides of the same coin. Lust is the driving force that leads us towards love, and it is the foundation upon which our relationships are built. We need lust to create love, and we need love to sustain our relationships. By embracing both of these powerful emotions, we can create deep, meaningful, and fulfilling connections with the people we love.
