    Yes. But Jesus is the only candidate on the ballot.

    As a teenager i'd say physical however.. I am a teenager. I can see how emotional would be great but there's (probably) far more potential for my understanding. For now, ecstacy ecstacy ecstacy....... :banana: :D

    I'd go emotional - sounds like being perpetually happy as opposed to an everlasting massage.

    What a bizarre poll.

    Everlasting orgasm or insanely happy?

    I said you'd be forever in ecstasy, not forever in pain. MobBoss, I gotta break it to you; you have an annoying habit of tring to rewrite the OP.

    Also, it puzzles me how you think if you go to hell you would be in eternal physical pain, but god couldn't make eternal physical pleasure possible.

    Your interpretation of what I said was wildly inacurate.

    I get both when I'm with Fifty, why can't I get both in heaven?

    Does that mean I can't be with Fifty? :cry:

    That's exactly how I felt. I like pizza, prime rib, orgasms, hot tubs, massages, and cashmere, but I find the idea of being on methylenedioxymethamphetamine for eternity a little repulsive.

    Basically yeah. But if you choose physical you also get food, maasage, etc. If you choose emotional you also get excitment, love, and pride.

    What? By adding some sense to it? Puh-lease. Again, if my opinion is that some teenage fantasy of being forever in ecstasy would most likely be more of a painful realization, then whats the harm in that? Are you that opposed to thinking outside the box?

    Because heaven isnt a physical place....and where did I ever say hell was a physical place in which you suffered physical pain? Methinks you assume much here.

    Ditto.

    No, but come on man! I ask a simple hypothetical question and you're adding side effects to it that I say never happen. Which I can do because the question is HYPOTHETICAL! Just awnser the question you see okay?

    I prefer physical. Emotional would just interfere with my thinking and who I am.

    You can't have 1 without the other. If you have no food you'll be miserable, no matter if how much love/pride/etc you're experiencing.
    Conversely, if you're emotionally unhappy (say you're on death row awaiting your execution) no amount of hot sex can make you feel good.

    As my kids say to some folks "you're not the boss of me". I retain the posters right to offer my opinion as well as my vote. :lol:

    Not all hypotheticals are created equally. If you alter the physical experience (i.e. no pain due to things like prolonged erection, etc.) to equal the spiritual experience; then whats the point of choosing between them?

    You may as well toss coins and ask 'heads or tails'. :lol:

    My point invalidates your begging of the question, anyway.

    It entirely depends on how you define either ectasty. Physical could be eternal orgasm, endless binging on awesome food, to being pampered by German supermodels. Emotional could be anything from the connection you get from your best friend(s), connection with your family, connection with your God, to that feeling you get when you sit next to a girl that you have a crush on.

    The question is obvious nonsense, and most of the posts have proved it so.

    I am still not clear on the difference. Don't we experience both physical and emotional pleasure in our minds anyways?

    Do you honestly consider the question: Would you rather get a foot maasage while eating a steak or play catch with your son, to be the same as "heads or tails."
