Patrick posted to his blog “The Pursuit of Beauty” a series of very attractive guys wearing jeans. He asked an intriguing question: “Some people find men in jeans beautiful, or is it just lust.” Perhaps it all depends on where you think beauty lies. Lust is the arousal of the erotic spirit. That in itself seems to me to be an experience of beauty, of deep interior spiritual beauty, because the erotic is the beauty of sexual attraction.
It is all rather subjective but there are various flourishes that add to the attractiveness of one male to another. Beards, body hair, leather, jeans are just some examples. We should never despise what we call lust, because it is just the power of the erotic, a deep spiritual power, taking hold of us. It is the whole of our being responding to the magnificence of male beauty. It is the call of God to enter into deep communion with him our Creator. Wearing jeans is a sort of code of communication from male to male about our shared masculinity.
