Which desire is more powerful?
Hunger. if I'm seriously hungry and someone takes my chocolate, I will beat them senseless. but that's during PMS. lol
Have you ever heard of Maslow's hierarchy of needs? Your basic needs (food, water, shelter) have to be mostly met before you can strive for higher needs (love, sex, acceptance, sense of self).
Never seen someone get so lusty they ate one of their own limbs.
Eating your own limb seems a terrible way to cure hunger. Won't you most likely bleed to death before you were able to eat it, and even if not, your body would expend a ton of energy trying to heal up the wound.
Hunger. In the movie alive (true story based on the 1972 plane crash in the Andes), they ate the dead to stay alive. I'm guessing, in the event they all survived the initial crash, the weak pretty girls would have been eaten first.
Which does Hollywood, TV and the music industry appeal to?
Well, you can't live w/o food, so anyone who answered lust should try fasting for a few weeks. Their answer will probably change before the time is up.
Hunger. For me anyway.
Until last year it was lust.
Depends on the person.
In terms of Maslow, Lust is just another name for Hunger; higher up in the Hierarchy.
