Since P had never truly been a daily thing for me, although describing it as weekly or biweekly over the last couple years would be accurate, I usually have rather good control over whether or not my thoughts are of a sexual nature when looking at a girl or a picture thereof. Like all other heterosexual guys however, I still find the female physique, especially the face of an attractive woman, a beautiful thing to behold. My question is, if thoughts remain nonsexual, is it ever a bad thing (feel free to elaborate on personal definitions of "bad") to admire such beauty? Cause it seems no worse than, say, marveling at a Lamborghini, or taking in the magnificence of the Grand Canyon, except that it appeals to a much more forceful and base attraction. [EDIT:] Upon rereading the above, I noticed how the last sentence was worded. The problem usually encountered when admiring women is objectification, and by the comparisons made it would certainly seem like that's what I do. I think in a way it might be true, sometimes I allow myself to get lost in admiration of a certain person's physical beauty, but it doesn't seem like this should be an inherently bad thing. However, I wanted to clarify that I don't view women as impersonal objects such as cars or land formations. In fact I often actively wonder what they're like as a person, especially if I have some romantic interest in them.
