Strong sexual desire
Nature

Concupiscence (from Late Latin noun concupiscentia, from the Latin verb concupiscence, from con-, "with", here an intensifier, + cupi(d)-, "desiring" + -escere, a verb-forming suffix denoting beginning of a process or state) is an ardent, usually sensual, longing. In Christianity, particularly in Roman Catholic and Lutheran theology, concupiscence is the tendency of humans to sin.

There are nine occurrences of concupiscence in the Douay-Rheims Bible and three occurrences in the King James Bible. It is also one of the English translations of the Koine Greek epithumia (ἐπιθυμία), which occurs 38 times in the New Testament.

Involuntary sexual arousal is explored in the Confessions of Augustine, wherein he used the term "concupiscence" to refer to sinful lust.

Claim 
1. Research suggests that most men think about sex five to 15 times an hour.

2. Ludicrous efforts are made to extend sexuality to include both young children and people of advancing age. In fact, the genital sex act causes untold stress, creates hormonal chaos, stifles the intellect, and weakens the body's resistance to illness. Where sex steps in, there is little room for social activity and personal development. Like drug use, sexual acts lead the user not to satiety, but to the longing for more. Sex is more dangerous than other addictions in that it requires the cooperation of another person, be they willing, coerced or bought. Intense sexual desire accompanied by lascivious imagination or wanton behaviour is a vice that promotes irrational, immoral, and frequently criminal, actions. It is a direct cause of prostitution, pornography, illegitimate children, adultery, marriage breakups and sexual offences.

Counter-claim 
1. Thinking about sex is not the same as lust or sexual arousal. 2. It is a man's choice to mentally massage a sexual cue into lust.
