Christians on Masturbation.

Hey y'all all you wonderful Interferencers!

The topic speaks for itself really. Is Christianity against masturbation? You see, I am a Christian. Not an incredibly religious Christian, I do not go to Church but do pray to God at times and generally try to lead a sound life being helpful to others and hopefully being a positive influence on those who are close to me.

However, I do masturbate. I'm not one of those addicted, three times a day type though. On average I'd say around three times a week. Is this permitted in the Bible? I know that Catholics generally are more dismissive and against masturbation given that previous Popes have condemned it. But is the bible? I have heard some verses are interpreted as being against it, such as Adam being punished for 'spilling his seed.'

Anyway, this wasn't an easy topic to make but I'd love to hear the opinions of any other Intereferencer's, masturbators or non-masturbators.

As a Christian I always ask myself...

What would Jesus do?

And then I try and do it.

God would've give you a penis if He didn't want you to use it.

Everything in moderation.

as far as I know the bible does not handle this topic.
Of course in the old testament their was a guy called "Onan" - where we get out word "Onanie" from - similar to masturbation - but that guy did not pratice masturbation he did "coitus interruptus" - that was disliked.

The bible is not very sex-friendly by the way -
their is always a war against the flesh - esspcially in the letters from Paulus and these guys. For example 1.Korinter 9:27.

But apart from that 92 % of men jerk of it's completly normal. Enjoy....but don't forget the real deal about it.

I was always taught it was a sin in the same way that using a condom is. I don't know if it's changed since I was in school though.

So if using a condom is a sin, and masturbating is a sin, that leaves those in search of, er, satisfaction, with the choice of abstinance (can't get no satisfaction) or unprotected sex.

Brilliance!



...

wack away.

The only thing I was taught about it was that I'd go blind. I'm 36 now and still have 20/20 vision, so, yeah.

They believe you should wait until marriage and then use natural family planning to get your "satisfaction."

"The Roman Catholic Church is against unnatural means of birth control such as condoms and the birth control pill. Roman Catholicism feels a married couple needs to be open to having children. Artificial birth control takes Jesus Christ out of the factor. The birth control pill can cause women to abort without even knowing it. Sex is a beautiful act, and when artificial birth control is used, sex is cheapened."

Not that I agree with it, but that's what they say.
