Pleasure: A definition


Pleasure

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Pleasure is a positive sensation, which by analogy to pain, can be physiologically described as either peripheral or central (euphoria). It is commonly conceptualized as somehow opposed to pain, though it has received much less scientific attention. From a gross physiological approach, peripheric pleasure could be related to the nociceptive sense, which "detects" pain or noxious stimuli, or be considered an entirely new realm of sense, largely unexplored.

It also refers to "enjoyment" related to certain physical, sensual, emotional or mental experience.

Pleasure also means (as a starting point to quote [[1]]): " Etymology: Middle English plesure, alteration of plesir, from Middle French plaisir, from plaisir to please 1 : DESIRE, INCLINATION (wait upon his pleasure -- Shakespeare) 2 : a state of gratification 3 a : sensual gratification b : frivolous amusement 4 : a source of delight or joy "

Pleasure may also be defined, at least in some contexts, to be a significant reduction in discomfort.

Pleasure is what one makes of it....
Pleasure can go from the simple touch of the sun laying upon one's face, to the fingers of the wind running through one's hair....
Pleasure can be a laughter created from the mouth or action of a young child...
Pleasure can be the seeing the reward of hard work when your child has succeeded at doing what they sort forth to accomplish....
Pleasure can be the touch of the small of the back, a light kiss on the back of the neck...
Pleasure can be being tied up and restrained by a loved one...
Pleasure can be sweet nothing wispered into your ears, or "naughty" thougths provoked into one's mind through the ear of a mate
Pleasure can be any, all, or even none of these...
For pleasure is as life....
It is what you make of it.....
And of course you get from pleasure what you take from it....
