Masturbation is pretty common especially among teenagers and most adults.
I won't start giving and going into details about what it is and ways it's done...we sha know what's up.
Anyways I had a discussion with some friends as to if it's a sin to masturbate. It was very much conflicting because even as some frowned and damned the conversation, there were some other valid points made. Some people believed since it wasn't hurting anyone it was all good and fine, others said it's not listed in the commandments....let's talk though.
The truth is, the Bible never explicitly labeled masturbation as a sin. However, we know, whether we choose to accept it or not, that masturbation is as a result of lustful or sexual stimulation and pornographic images. So it's sinful abi?
But there are cases,in marriages where one of the persons involved can't attain the climax or orgasmic state without masturbating. So it begs the question "is it sinful to masturbate alone or it's ok when you do it with your partner?"
Here's my take on it. Under such circumstances, if the person masturbates to deny his/her partner sex, then according to Paul in the book of Corinthians,it's wrong. And if it's due to fantasies from extra-marital affairs, well it fits with the lust Jesus spoke about. Nevertheless, in a marriage where one can't be satisfied normally, I don't see anything wrong with it. People have physiological differences. It may take a guy 10 minutes to get there and his wife will still be trying to get her groove on. So there's no issue with that. Even some married couples resort to masturbation when they can't be together due to work or some other reasons..I still find no problem with that. It's actually no biggie. But whichever context you present to the average society with very judgemental religious views, trust them to condemn you to hell straight up.
This is just my point of view. Let me know yours. Talk with Krystal :)
