What is the pleasure principle?

Per the APA Dictionary of Psychology it is - the view that human beings are governed by the desire for gratification, or pleasure, and for the discharge of tension that builds up as pain or “unpleasure” when gratification is lacking. In the classical psychoanalytic theory of Sigmund Freud, the pleasure principle is the psychic force that motivates people to seek immediate gratification of instinctual, or libidinal, impulses, such as sex, hunger, thirst, and elimination. 

This great resource is available to anyone - the dictionary that is - but there is much more to the 'principal' than meets the eye.
