I wonder why people are attracted to flesh? If one will look at it objectively, skin is skin, flesh is flesh, bone is bone. And yet, people are so obsessed over them.
What makes the smoothness of the skin attractive? What makes the redness of the lips so appealing? What is it about the general goodness of the body that makes us all fools for it?
Does it somehow give us grounds for exploration? Maybe when exploring someone else, it gives us a sense of fulfillment, a sort of conquest. Perhaps it's a primal need to "own" or to "take over" another being to make us feel superior, like winning a trophy.
On the other hand, there are those who prefer to be on the receiving end of the said "conquest". Maybe it is a form of flattery that someone would make an effort to win them over; that their bodies were enticing enough to be regarded as a prize for their "conquerors".
Either way, it shows how human beings need or at the very least, want to be with other people, regardless of the depth or shallowness of this need or want, though I don't mean to imply that physical attraction is shallow. I believe that even that has its own significant purpose. The human body is a superficial thing, at least that's how most of us are led to view it. Still, we can't deny that a great part of our minds, hearts and own bodies are held by the yearning for it.

My favorite song.
Wanted to be near you
But somebody owns you now."
