Like I said the majority of you here defending masturbation are wicked sinners, for surely the ones making jokes and thinking something is funny. Masturbation falls in to the category of sexual immorality...those following Christ repent and flee from it! Ask God for deliverance from it, cause it can become a stronghold. Um, all the rest of you heathens here...kick rocks if you choose to remain in you stiffnecked rebellion unto God...you serve no purpose here whatsoever!!!

So let me ask everyone this, do these rules apply to pre bible writings or just after the bible was written? Marriage is a human concept,if we weren't meant to have sex for pleasure, why would woman have a clitoris? It serves no other function except for pleasure, so rationalize that for me please!

Many other species engage in self pleasure,Dolphins, apes, dogs, etc. To be so arrogant and think that it is a sin just because we are "human" is nieve, if we weren't meant to experience pleasure then we wouldn't have the ability. Children play with themselves long before they are ever taught it is "wrong", and the fact that they are taught that is WRONG! I do agree with the fact of overindulgence, just like alcohol or anything else it is meant to be enjoyed in moderation. Not everyone has the good fortune to be married or even have someone in their lives to share the experience with, and I honestly don't think that a just and fair God would expect us to have these feelings or urges and not be able to release them. When it comes down to it its all about you, don't let anyone else tell you have to live your life,this is just my opinion and beliefs, this is why you are given a conscience, its up to you to decide.I think that is the greatest gift God gave us, free will and the ability to think for ourselves, use it wisely and good luck on your journey of life!:)

It's simply amazing that anyone would think that masturbation is a sin......if one doesn't know what it is that pleases them sexually, how can they share that information with their spouse, partner or anyone they have intimate relationships with?

Masturbation is a healthy part of our sexual development process. It's also answers some of our curiosity questions while exploring our own bodies.

So you think that this forum is simply a place for like-minded people to come together and reaffirm one another's ignorance and lies? Without someone else of a different opinion to come in and make you think about what you're saying?
Once again, it's people like you who are the reason that others are leaving the constraints of organized religion, and it's people like you that the Republicans need to disassociate themselves from if they ever want to be a respected Party again.

YES..its a sin..lack of self control

Lack of discipline of Christ in keeping thoughts on things in heaven and focusing on things on earth.

A man has self control ...

Sorry, but it is NOT a sin to explore one's own body and discovers what pleases them.......another fundie who obviously ISN'T getting any!!!

Really, a man has self control? Then you obviously know little about men, just as you do about pleasure......lol!!!

I like to do it with a crusifix just like on The Exorcist. And with The Exorcist theme song playing. My husband likes to watch so I guess it isn't a sin since he's there too,huh?

I do not see a problem with something that is a natural thing to do. I feel it would be better to masturbate than it would be to go out and screw someone and catch a deadly disease.
