Rational Desire

Men feel remorse for their lust because their will wants something else too, a loyal wife or a secure reputation, that their reason, their perception, realizes is at risk if they take the object of their lust. But that is not to say that their reason is governing them. They are governed by the desire for the wife or the reputation. Their reason after all will do everything it can to assist in the satisfaction of their lust, when they do not have the other desires to restrain them.
