Lasciviousness, is a state of indicating sexual interest or expressive of lust or lewdness.

Lasciviousness is a gross form of wickedness that has sexual overtones in many situations.

It starts in a sinful heart and manifests itself in carnal actions.

The word of God connotes several attitudes or actions with reference to sexual matters. Lasciviousness embraces the concepts of excess, unbridled lust, suggests a disregard of public decency.

Lasciviousness connotes the idea of a person who is so far gone in lust and desire that he or she ceases to care what people say or think. 

Thayer connected the term lasciviousness with such things as wanton acts or manners, filthy words, indecent bodily movements, and unchaste handling of males and females.

It is a comprehensive term for sexual immorality.

A lascivious individual is one who knows no boundaries, in whatever form of sexual immorality he/she indulges in.

The use of sexually explicit media materials is a form of lasciviousness. This would include pornographic material, such as porn videos, books or magazines, movies, audio tapes, et cetera.  

Lasciviousness is a growing trend in the world even among some who profess to know God. 

Lasciviousness occurs frequently in work places where men and women are constantly thrown together in close contact.

Flirting, suggestive touching, sexual conversations, provocative dressing for example miniskirts, tight skirts, tight trousers, transparent clothing, and the like are all forms of lascivious conduct that very often lead to fornication and adultery.

Lascivious communications are common on some websites. One of the most prominent used by youngsters is known as Facebook. It is prolifically punctuated with filthy language and indecent photographs.

Amazingly, these acts are done by those who profess to be born again Christians, though they obviously have no understanding of the significance of that term. 

Christian parents should show their children the right way to go. It is appalling that many parents or guardians allow their sons and daughters to engage in various forms of lascivious conduct be it indecent attire, visual entertainment, vulgar language, et cetera.

Such behavior is sweeping their children down the road to destruction.

Those who take the scriptures seriously will personally abstain from lascivious conduct and train their children to be morally upright. A Lascivious individual will not inherit the kingdom of God.
