    No, lust is fantasizing about a desire, which is usually a sexual one, but it is not sex.

    Sex could be the end result of lust. Lust is dreaming of having a passionate night of sex with the object of one's desire, often a member of the opposite sex. Sex, of course, is the realization of the imaginal act.

    Who knows?  Jesus said some stuff on the topic,  so did God.   It's probably a matter of the heart.
    Jesus said if you look at a woman lustfully then that's just as bad as having sex, which is impure and stuff.  God wants his people to be pure, and Jesus helps purify them after he saves them. 
    It's hard to say that's the truth though when so many people claim Jesus power and then have promiscuous sex, but eh, it doesn't make him any less real in my life. 
    good day and good luck with your sex endeavors.  haha

    Lust is the intense desire for something. You could have lust for money, sex, a particular car, whatever.
    Sex is a physical act between organisms. For humans, it is meant for both reproduction and pleasurable satisfaction.

    There is difference between lust and sex.Lust means the desire for something,Desire can be for sex or for something else like new iPhone, new home, money etc.
    But the sex is directly a act between two physical organisms for pleasure or enjoyment.

    No, Lust and Sex are not the same thing. There is a big difference between being "hungry" and "eating".
