@NumbFaint,
I always found it would be an issue which, however slight would eventually tale off, IE: not the really adult thing to do... The counter opinions in the world chip away at resolve due to relevance of it as worry seeming slight, though always in hindsight I kick myself mentally, it got incredibly rare in the last few years for me due to this.

Im not a religious person but I feel negative about masturbation.
A few of my friends are Mormon and their religion totally shuns masturbation as an evil sin. 

What are your guy's views on masturbation?

I get over it because it's an addiction I can't control.

****. I thinking to myself.

I would lay in bed with my partner and masturbate. while they slept or tended to whatever they tended to. Not my intent for it to be known while doing so.

I honestly used to think something along the lines of. evil. But actually evil. No. I don't think actually evil. I look at masturbation as I shouldn't but can't keep myself. feeling guilty at times afterwards. Till this day.

@anonymously99stwin,
Masturbation is the answer when you have no one to have sex with.

Or when you are refused sex.

Reason(s) to masturbate:

Denial. Denied.
Rejection. Rejected.
Patience. Patient.
Loyal. Loyalty.
Addiction. Addicted.
Depressed. Depression.
Yes. Depressed. Depression.
Stress. Stressed.
Anger. Angry.
Bored. Boredom.
Etc..

@NumbFaint,
I think it's evil in the sense that , when you are busy at it, you definitely not thinking about jesus except unholy thoughts.and it's a selfish form of sex for self gratification. But sex isn't about you alone,it should be about both you and your partner pleasing your selves, that's if you are married of course. if you are a christian I suppose you know it's written in Phillipian 3vs8 that we shouldn't think impure thoughts.my two cents

I always find it funny that in the US sex is so taboo but violence isn't. You can watch shows with people being shot in the head, kicked, stomped on bashed with objects, ect, ect ect but you can't show two people having sex.

Just goes to show how christianity has sexually oppressed the culture to make sex taboo. But of course christians love violence because their god always demands violence. If a god is fine with violence then of course christians will promote it and do.

At least you thought to use lower case 'c'. Straw man avoided. Good work.

Strawman! oo oo! strawman! Is this the only logical fallacy that you are aware of?

@Krumple,
You apparently have missed my oft written distinction between christians and Christians. Your observation about christians is quite true. Sadly, the world is full of christians who bear no resemblance to Jesus' words at John 13:35

Oh you are right, I'm sorry. Let me make sure I got this right.

Christians = morons

and

christians = lower case morons

Sound about right? Thanks for clearing that up for me..

Is that the best you can muster for rhetoric? Even Romeo throws better ad hominums.

Wilso without the profanity.

Alright, wait hold on a second I'm still laughing. Okay I'm better now.

First of all, calling christians or Christians morons is NOT an ad hominem. You really need to take a refresher course on logical fallacies. But you won't so I will have to educate you.

If I had said, christians or Christians are wrong because they are morons. That would be an ad hominem.

But if I say christians or Christians are morons that is NOT an ad hominem.

There is a difference. One is an attempt of a reason to explain a characteristic. While the other is a fact.

So I can say you are an idiot. Which would be factual and is NOT an ad hominem.

But if I said you are wrong because you are an idiot. That would be an ad hominem.

So you do understand the difference now? Or does it need to be explained again?

@Bella Dea,
Hello Bella,
I new to this forum. But somehow I'm looking for people I can share some personal feelings, thoughts and experiences with.
Sometimes I sit at my pc browsing porn sites and masturbating even though I'm in a relationship. I don't feel bad about it but I'd like to talk about it with others.
Moreover I don't know how this forum works. But I'd look forward to a reply.
Thanks in advance.

@NumbFaint,
Google 'health effects of masturbation' There are many. So unless something which reduces the chance of a few kinds of cancers, UTIs, makes our sperm cells more viable and likely to result in procreation, etc. is 'evil' no it's not.

Isn't even forbidden by Scripture. Onana's thing was coitus interuptus (that is, withdrawing the penis from the vagina at or before climax to prevent a prgenancy.) Masturbation is totally different.

Christian theologians in fact say masturbation in and of itself isn't sinful. Sin comes in if you're fantasizing about people you're not married to. But if you're fantasizing about your spouse, it isn't sin.

Where did you find this?

Jeez. It's getting so that you cannot make stuff up on the Internet without someone calling attention to it!
