The link with the forbidden
The temptation is a complex sensation that imply the existence of an important desire access to that which is forbidden. Precisely, the prohibitive character bearing some of the objects, people, actions or acts is what awakens to the temptation and in this sense is that temptation can become a certainly dangerous attitude resulting in the majority of cases in feelings of guilt once the individual gave or transgressed that desire.
What is forbidden, and thus the temptation will be too, is linked with the danger and is precisely that combo of danger-forbidden what attracts some people who just are more permeable to these issues.
Forbidden love and relationships, to mention one of the most common examples are great temptations in which people committed to someone or something usually fall in their lives.
However, once it transcends the temptation it is usual that the person rendered a sense of guilt which will be difficult to overcome. Not all act similarly to blame, there are some who decide to confess his action thus feel relieved and less obviously guilty but there are also others who cannot do so for fear that got lost and then decide to fall on the lie, something that will also fill them with remorse and more feelings of guilt.
The opposite behavior, that can remain immune to the temptation, requires in all cases a significant share of willpower and consciousness. By this we mean that when someone presents a temptation of some kind you will have to invest much value and effort to not fall in front of it. It is usually difficult to not give in to it, but it can also happen that he has avoided succumbing to the same but return the individual feels sad, depressed.

According to the biblical tradition, the temptation is one of the first mistakes where the fall Adam and Eve as representatives of mankind to accept the Apple forbidden part of the malicious snake he shared with them the paradise. The temptation is then designated as an element of weakness before a possible desire for something forbidden, although you could also say that the temptation is specifically the time prior to the obtaining of that forbidden element or to the realization of the Act in question.
The temptation as a social phenomenon has always had different modes to be represented throughout history. In this sense, current societies establish certain tantalizing elements that may be related to attitudes or specific practices of the time, while many of them related with consumerism and the unrestrained acquisition of goods.
