(Adult / Slang)
1. A strong sexual urge, desire, or appetite, especially a self-indulgent desire to possess or enjoy; to crave. Saint Augustine (AD 353-430) associated sexual lust with the original sin of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden; lust had transformed the innocent procreative instinct, instilled in humanity by God, into sin. Following their fall from grace, Adam and Eve cloaked their nakedness with fig leaves. In the Renaissance, lustless meant impotent and a sudden urge of sexual excitement was called an insurrection of lust. In his humorous dictionary The Penthouse Sexicon (1968), Frederic Mullally defined LOVE: ' What makes the world go round.' versus LUST: ' What makes the heels go round.'
