Theoretically passion requires.....

Question (as posed by my philosophy teacher in class tonight):

If passion does require desire - Can you truly desire anything when all of your psychological and physical needs are being met?

What do you think????

And, taking it into the context of the bedroom....

Are you passionate in your lovemaking b/c all of your psychological and physical needs are not being met???? And, if those needs are met, would you be just as passionate????

Just curious....

If I desire something, but my psychological and physical needs are met, I will still desire the thing I desire. There is always room to improve on something if you want that desire to be satified.

That goes the same in the bedroom. There can always be some way to improve on giving satisfaction to you partner, and vice-versa.

I'm just as passionate in my lovemaking, because my gal still need full gratification ALL the time; not just SOME of the time.

Sounds like about that time the good married folks ought to be trying new things in the bedroom (or outside it) to bring the passion back to their love lives!

*trying: exploring, learning, giving, asking...

Is that why even "good" marriages get boring? All their "needs" are being met, so away goes the passion? GOD FORBID I am ever in that kind of a situation again!

I do think passion is something that can be cultivated by various means: exploration, learning, giving, asking,etc.

A classic Maslow of heirachy question. Maslow sees the peak of the pyramid as self actualisation, but I could replace it with passion. Down the bottom of the scale are basic needs like hunger, basic bodily functions, pain.

There are certainly instances where passion for a cause has replaced fundemental needs. There were the Irish hunger strikers, fighting off hunger for the pursuit of a cause, a higher level need.

I know for me I am so grateful to be performing the act of lovemaking, pretty much all else goes out the window. How I would be when the nuts and bolts of living together, stress of a mortgage and other earthly worries, its hard to say.

I can say that I am normally a piping hot pit of passion. Both in the bedroom and out.

Just some thoughts.

kind of like if you are full, are you hungry?
But you can always eat something else when full-
dessert etc....change taste.
No I don't think we ever get full...
its temporary passion and needs to be refilled...and refueled...
