Christian Masturbation Mass-debate


Kim's Story: I a fifteen year old girl, and I just started masturbating three days ago. I haven't actually come yet, and the second night I tried, I gave up in yet another failed attempt. After I lay down to go to sleep, I felt a tremendous amount of guilt. To put it bluntly, I was horrified. I am a die-hard Christian, and I was shocked that I had done such a thing. I cried silently for hours. The next day I got on the net and found some Christian/masturbation web-sites. I soon found out that the question on whether it is right or wrong to masturbate is totally up for debate. No one really knows. I felt a lot better.

Then yesterday at work, I started thinking about my W.W.J.D. band. What would Jesus do? I was clueless. But I soon started thinking some more. Jesus was created in human form, right? Right. He WAS actually a HE. So HE had HIS own equipment. I started to wonder if Jesus himself ever masturbated, (as bad as it may sound.) I wondered if he EVER once got excited. He was a male, with all human feelings. He had to! I feel a lot better now about what I'm still trying to do. --Kim

Christian Masturbation

I've read the many submissions regarding Christians and masturbation, which seem to reflect mostly how a person feels regarding the practice. The average person seems to think that masturbation is something that, in their own estimation, would be unpleasing to God. Centuries of over-zealous Christians have taken this line, thereby making themselves and others feel a strong sense of guilt.

I personally believe that what the Bible says is true, and I will not go beyond that. To add to what the Bible says is basically putting human words in God's mouth, and human opinions in God's mind. So we have to take what the Bible says at face value and make the appropriate applications.

We can be assured that men (I've chosen to deal with my own gender here) have been masturbating ever since the beginning. As long as men have had penises and hands and have been horny, you can be assured that they have masturbated. It is not an innovation of the 20th century. And it doesn't take an Einstein to figure out that if you rub your penis with your hand, you will ejaculate. In fact I would speculate that young men of yesteryear probably did it more, since there weren't all of the other activities to occupy their time (T.V., Sega, Videos, etc.).

Regardless of how much or little men have masturbated over the last several thousand years, we know it happened; furthermore God knew it happened and that it will continue to happen. So how has God chosen to deal with this?

There is only one section in the Bible that could even remotely be applied to the physical act of masturbation. In Leviticus 15, 16-18 we read: When a man has an emission of semen, he must bathe his whole body with water, and he will be unclean till evening. Any clothing or leather that has semen on it must be washed with water, and it will be unclean till evening. When a man lies with a woman and there is an emission of semen, both must bathe with water, and they will be unclean till evening.

It's always a tricky subject...especially for Catholics! I once dated a Catholic who would masturbate but did not believe in sex before marriage... Oh, and oral sex was ok...

Many Christians can be hypocrites, but they have to make sense of the book they go by. The Bible "as is" is no way to live one's life by!

I've noticed how many different Christians have varying beliefs about touching themselves. Men tend to make more excuses (I think because society hasn't pushed the normality of female masturbation - maybe starting to).

And hot image, BTW! :)

I still think you are jsut tryong to justify you touching yourself to pics of batman...

Eek said...

Lol, more like fake-boobed porn stars wearing pseudo-superhero outfits.

Yep, I have a feeling Moth is more likely to masturbate to superhero porn than simple images of batman. Robin maybe, but not Batty.

I guess everyone has their vice lol.

OH... AND LOOKSEE... FIREFOX WORKS!!! woot!

Hehehe, Dog's true confessions here. After I got 'saved' I was really caught up with being this 'new man' and immersed myself so much that I pushed aside these urges with all my strength. Then after about 5-6 weeks, I thought I should go thru the motions to at least express the fluid. So whilst doing my best to avoid naughty thoughts, I did the piston thing. Man! I just about EXPLODED! I literally came close to fainting with the deluge, and felt like I'd been turned inside out!!!

Dogma free said...

but to think about it, if Jesus never married or had sex with others (IF) yet was a man subject to common desires, it stands to reason that he had at least the occasional wank. A lot of christians may be uncomfortable with this thought, but why should they? If he had some extraordinary powers of constraint, (and never did) that would make him weird!

pmsl... yep, ya either have to come clean or wet dream.

Jesus had to have offloaded or he wouldn't have been human, and being human was part of the deal.

I don't believe what the bible says...

but I'm curious..

this piece refering to the bible and how it doesn't mention 'masturbation'...reads like a fundamentalists wet dream. Why the heck do 'wankers' care what the bible says & if it gives them permission to do whatever? Why fucking look in a 'book'?

Do you know what I mean...looking for bible verses...to me, shows a fundamentalist mindset.

silly...?

Just look at how badly your Krixstianity has f-u-c-k-ed you up!!! Masturbation is a normal Human endeavor, and a very satifactory substitute when no live person is available to make love to.... or at your young age, to put you in-touch with your developing sexuality. Instead of feeling guilty where there should be no guilt associated with the activity... you should go out in your back yard and burn your destructive book, the pathetically useless bible, and then go enjoy your life guilt free. GUILT is used to CONTROL YOUR MIND, and once that is done... the rest is easy for the CONTROLLERS!

No i never masturbated or "wanked" when i was in human form. I am perfect. Masturbation is caused by lustful thoughts. Wanting to give 'self' pleasure. I have never been about satisying 'self' or getting any self gratification while on earth. I had one purpose and that was to sacrifice my perfect and holy self in order for you porn perving wanking sinners to be allowed in to Heaven. So next time you masturbate. Spare a thought for me on the cross. And stop wanking off!
Love J.C

If you believe that there is a God, a God that made your body, and yet you think that you can do anything with that body that's dirty, then the fault lies with the manufacturer.

Why should we take advice on sex from the Pope? If he knows anything about it, he shouldn't!

Religion is probably, after sex, the second oldest resource which human beings have available to them for blowing their minds.

Atheism would be like masturbation – you know you’re there by yourself, but hell, you’re having a good time!
Religion would be like masturbating with a happy face drawn on your hand – it’s still only you, but you like pretending that you’re not alone.

Religion is against masturbation because, unlike religion, masturbation has a purpose, makes you feel good, gives you something to rub other than beads and actually delivers kingdom come at the end.

until you mentioned the word jesus it sounded like a creepy penthouse forum. lol. but on a serious note the bible itself is manmade, though inspired by god- moses broke the tablets and had to rewrite it himself. the new testament is a compilation of accounts of jesus' life BY PEOPLE (put together centuries after his death) furthermore, every forum, every blog, and article was written by a person, none of whom have any greater connection to god than you do. there is no reason to let them dictate your life or what you do with your body. i could tell you that masturbation is perfectly normal, especially for a girl your age but thats only opinion. so rather than giving into the pressure and repression of so many "religious experts" or listening to bloggers and nutcases, you should forge your own connection with god and come to your own decision.
