Matthew 5:27-30 (NIV) "You have heard that it was said, 'Do not commit adultery.'  But I tell you that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has already committed adultery with her in his heart.  If your right eye causes you to sin, gouge it out and throw it away.
It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to be thrown into hell.  And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better for you to lose one part of your body than for your whole body to go into hell.
Proverbs 5:15-21 (NIV) Drink water from your own cistern, running water from your own well.  Should your springs overflow in the streets, your streams of water in the public squares?  Let them be yours alone, never to be shared with strangers.  May your fountain be blessed, and may you rejoice in the wife of your youth.
 A loving doe, a graceful deer-- may her breasts satisfy you always, may you ever be captivated by her love.  Why be captivated, my son, by an adulteress? Why embrace the bosom of another man's wife?  For a man's ways are in full view of the Lord, and he examines all his paths.
What does that question really mean?
Proverbs 6:25-32 (NIV) Do not lust in your heart after her beauty or let her captivate you with her eyes,  for the prostitute reduces you to a loaf of bread, and the adulteress preys upon your very life.  Can a man scoop fire into his lap without his clothes being burned?  Can a man walk on hot coals without his feet being scorched?
 So is he who sleeps with another man's wife; no one who touches her will go unpunished.  Men do not despise a thief if he steals to satisfy his hunger when he is starving.  Yet if he is caught, he must pay sevenfold, though it costs him all the wealth of his house.  But a man who commits adultery lacks judgment; whoever does so destroys himself.
Lust is an unavoidable part of being human
Lust is a choice
You cannot keep the birds from flying over your head, but you can keep them from building a nest in your hair.
