Should single Christians have sexual/romantic fantasies?

So every week I host a “Let’s Talk with AWalk” a young adult meet-up in my town. It’s basically about 15 of us, between the ages of 21 – 35, that come together to socialize over a bite to eat and talk about various topics. When we got on the topic of dating and relationships, things got really interesting. One of the questions that went unanswered, because it was getting late was, “Is it okay for single Christians to have sexual/romantic fantasies in lieu of having sex? Or is having fantasies just as bad?” Inquiring minds wanted to know! LOL

If you’re a single Christian virgin or single practicing celibacy, things can get a little steamy. It appears sometimes that masturbation and fantasying are the only two options to really satisfy that “itch”.  Now I have heard both sides of this argument. Some say fantasying is still fornication and it’s a sin. While others argue that it is better to fantasize than engage in sexual intercourse.

#takemyfoolishadvice the heart is willing but the flesh is weak. I personally believe that the act of sin first takes place in your mind.

So what do you guys think? Do you think Christian men and women should be fantasizing? I’m curious to know what you do if you’re single. Do share in the comment section below.
