Is it unethical to use another human being for self-gratification?

  • Yes, that is taking advantage of them.

    Yes, it is unethical to use another human being for self-gratification, because people should not take advantage of others. Each person has inalienable rights. No human being is created better than another. One human should not use another for their own purposes, simply because they have more power or influence. That goes against God's ways.

  • Using someone for your own gratification is the lowest behavior in man.

    Self gratification is the ultimate in self-servicing practices. The way that some men use women solely for their bodies is disgusting. But this is more than a sexual issue. Some people use friends for money, or favors, all of this just to be gratified in what they can achieve for themselves. Though it may be human nature to use people, I believe in a higher standard. I think it is wrong to use people for self gratification.

  • It depends on what is meant by "use"

    "use" is a vague term. You could say that when an employer hires somebody they are "using" them and you would technically be correct. You could also say that when you have sex with somebody that you are "using" them and indeed "using" them for "self-gratification" even if you care about them. The fact that you care about them and what they get out of it does not change the fact that you are technically using them for self-gratification. But you could say that for other activities to. Say you want to play a video game and invite a friend to play it with you. Technically you are using that person for your self-gratification.

    Now if by "use" you mean that you are in some way hurting the other person and are disregarding that in order to get your way, as the term "use" is often used to imply then I would say that's unethical.
