God and Lust?

I can’t find the answer to what should be an important but simple question. Does god know what lust feels like? It is important to me because logic demands that either god feels lust and is therefore not perfectly good/pure OR god does not know what lust feels like and therefore not omnipotent. Any help?

‘Adventurous’ Woman Needed as Surrogate for Neanderthal Baby
Are you an adventurous human woman? Adventurous enough to be a surrogate mother for the first Neanderthal baby to be born in 30,000 years?
Harvard geneticist George Church recently told Der Spiegel he’s close to developing the necessary technology to clone a Neanderthal, at which point all he’d need is an “adventurous human woman” — einen abenteuerlustigen weiblichen Menschen — to act as a surrogate mother.
It’s not out of the question at all. As MIT Technology Review’s Susan Young points out, scientists cloned an extinct subspecies of ibex in 2009. It died immediately, sure. But they still cloned it.
What would that entail? According to a 2008 study of a Neanderthal infant skeleton (from which the above image is taken), “the head of the Neanderthal newborn was somewhat longer than that of a human newborn because of its relatively robust face,” and Neanderthal women generally had a wider birth canal than human women. Neanderthal birth was simpler than human birth, because Neanderthal infants didn’t have to rotate to get to the birth canal, but otherwise the processes were very similar. (Even so, I imagine all but the most adventurous of human women would opt for a C-section in this case.)
Once the baby’s out, though, you’re in good shape — Neanderthal babies are thought to have grown much more quickly than their human counterparts. And Church seems to think that there’ll be a Neanderthal craze, as he told Bloomberg Businessweek last year:
“We have lots of Neanderthal parts around the lab. We are creating Neanderthal cells. Let’s say someone has a healthy, normal Neanderthal baby. Well, then, everyone will want to have a Neanderthal kid. Were they superstrong or supersmart? Who knows? But there’s one way to find out.”

Q
Hi! I read your opinion on the importance of an orgasm and I completely agree. I seldom reach orgasm with a partner and it's never bothered me but it does seem to bother them a lot and it also seems to bother others when they ask me why I have sex when there is no orgasm. How would you respond to that? They just don't see the intimacy as being "good enough".

Hello, Missaat!

I wouldn’t worry too much about getting others to understand that you can have pelasant sex without orgasm. Many people I have encountered treat sex like a chore. They act as though it is something that they have to do and they fail unless both partners climax. I think it is most important for you to make sure that your partner(s) to understand that you are satisfied even without an orgasm. Since they may feel guilty or below par if they believe they aren’t satisfying you. It may take some convincing, but hopefully they will see that you can enjoy simply being touched intimately and feeling connected even if an orgasm is never reached. Best of luck!

This was put on my facebook wall. I did not write it, but I very much agree with the man who did. I am not going to give his name in order to respect his privacy.

This is from an outstanding documentary called Life After Porn After Porn Ends. I’m pretty sure it’s on Netflix, and I know that it’s in the Google Play and iTunes stores.

This is a fantastic documentary. It touches on the fact that our society makes these people’s careers, then shuns them for giving us pleasure. Very worth a watch.

I love this book. I recently got a popup version of it with all the artwork. I look forward to rereading this sweet story a few thousand more times.
