Morals and Masterbation!!!!Page 2 of 4    (1, 2, 3, 4)

Yeah you really should alternate hands...otherwise you look like the Hunchback of Notre Dame...:)


LMAO

On topic, I'm not religiously affiliated to anything, and if I had to choose something close, it would be Agnostic. I don't see anything wrong with masturbating. I don't feel guilty about the money I spend on batteries at BJ's Wholesale Club, I do not feel guilty that I could actually have the real thing and don't, don't feel guilty about not feeling guilty, the thought never crossed my mind.

I've always wondered why we learn to masturbate rather early without ever seeing or hearing about anyone doing it. I've always wondered why our hands land there automatically. If it were wrong, wouldn't it be complicated to do?

I was wondering, is masterbation against religion?


I can tell you that is against the rules of spelling thus the correct term should be masturbation not masterbation.

Masturbation is not addressed in the Bible directly. Best to read Liviticus and what it has to say about sex in general. Only the high priest is supposed to marry a virgin (as a virgin). There's also a host of other things in there about food etc. You will also find that in many cases, modern "mainstream church dogma" has little to do with Biblical principles.

Many of the same religious authorities that say you will burn in hell for eternity think it is okay to look the other way when a grown man rapes a child.

so,apparently the story about spilling the seed was about a "money shot" ? :)

Much of the Bible was a historical tract--the Ten Commandments, for example, is a great way to keep crime down in a time where there were no cops and court pretty much was a noble passing judgement--no jury, little evidence, much hearsay. When people didn't live so long, and one soldier couldn't mow down many with a machine gun, it would help a tribe to have more warriors (so long as it could feed them. otherwise, well, that would lead to war in order to get more), more farmers or food gatherers, and more to carry on the line.

so, "wasting the seed" wasn't seen as a great way for a teenager--old enough to marry back then--to relieve himself of his sexual heat. better to marry so that the inheritance couldn't be questioned, and procreate often.

times, obviously, have changed. sometimes the Church does, too.:) I believe most Churches have decided, there's bigger problems in the community needing solving than jerkin' the Gherkin'. Considering overpopulation, its probably a better way to "treat the Garden" by not adding to the population.

The story about "spilling the seed" was not so much about masturbation, as it was about the man's defiance of God commanding him to find a woman and procreate. He chose not to. Spilling his seed was just a side note, and a reinforcement of his act of defiance.

It is estimated that 94% of the population advise that they masturbate.
It is estimated the remaining 6% of the population are complete liars. ;-)

The sad reality is the amount of guys who give up easily because they have the " forget it, I'll just go home and rub one out, that way I won't embarrass myself " mentality

If masturbation was as difficult as giving oneself a bj perhaps more shy guys would be more motivated to get out and get the real thing

Well, judging by the response of most of the women on here, if more of the shy guys were going out to get the real thing, it would just end up annoying the crap out of women even more than they already are.

sigungq was close when he writ large this post:
The story about "spilling the seed" was not so much about masturbation, as it was about the man's defiance of God commanding him to find a woman and procreate. He chose not to. Spilling his seed was just a side note, and a reinforcement of his act of defiance.


Yes, God commanded and He was defied, but it wasn't just because the one spoke to did not procreate with just any woman; no, Onan was commanded by God to continue his brother's lineage by taking his brother's wife. Onan did not want this to happen to the benefit to his brother hence the spilled seed.

As to the original post: scripture is pretty specific about some of your questions. Sex outside of marriage is wrong. Premarital sex is wrong. When you get around to the question of masturbation the waters get a bit more murky. If you are "spilling your seed," and/or what ever the equivalent for women would be, and using porn or other similar material for the mental imagery you are on the wrong side of righteous.
In a marital relationship mutual masturbation is OK and solo adventures may be OK, when apart, so long as it doesn't harm the relationship.

So masturbation is not the sin......it's what you're thinking or looking at WHILE you're doing it that's the sin. : /

Unless you think self-pleasuring and sexual fantasy are perfectly normal, healthy and delightful, and beneficial for body and mind. Then they’re not sin. They're prayers of thanksgiving. God likes it (grins).

Anyone called Hitchens with the name of Peter or Christopher have no claim whatsoever to being the least bit "sensible"!

^^^ well then. i guess that requires me to quote Christopher Hitchens.

Masturbation:

"That’s the short note about celibacy in the Catholic Church, now we get to the rules and regulations that were created by sex deprived, possible child molesters for you to follow or else it is a sin and may be responsible for you going to Hell...............

If we gave in to our every base instinct every time, civilization would have been impossible and there would be no writing in which to continue this argument. However, there can be no question that a human being, whether standing up or lying down, finds his or her hand resting just next to the genitalia. Useful no doubt in warding off primeval aggressors once our ancestors decided to take the risk of going erect and exposing the viscera, this is both a privilege and a provocation denied to most quadrupeds (some of whom can compensate by getting their mouths to the same point that we can reach with our fingers and palms)."


..... or maybe

"God made masturbation a sin but put man's arms within reach of his cock, what a moron he must be."



lol. thanks be to Hitch.

Of course, otherwise it's no more a sin than scratching an itch

if you believe that intercourse ( sex) is only for pro-creation
then biblically speaking, spilling your seed is frowned upon

I don't believe there are too many Christians that would openly admit
to doing this

does that mean they don't do it?

"You deserve a good whack for that one…. Maybe they should yank you outta here."

>>>hey, don't jerk us around, say how you really feel.

What can I say in my defense, it felt so good to release.


(I wish I had a better come-back, but we're going to have to wait a few minutes)

Yes, Chuck, I do have a mirrored ceiling. Its from a fun-house, however. makes any girl skinny :) lol
