Being religious, do you still masturbate?

Most religions condemn masturbation but how many guys ACTUALLY follow through on that?

Examples. "Nowhere in the Bible is masturbation explicitly forbidden. There is good reason for this because the problem does not come from masturbation, which is in itself neither good or bad, but the adulterous sexual fantasies that accompany it, as Christ makes clear in Matthew 5:28."

Thessalonians 4:3-6 says, “It is God’s will that you should be sanctified; that you should avoid sexual immorality; that each of you should learn to control your own body in a way that is holy and honorable, not

  • I think that any "Religion" that says masturbation, male or female, is just WRONG!!
    For example, in Catholicism, you cannot masturbate, without "Sinning" and you cannot have sex, outside of marriage, without sinning. Yet this one religion, has the MOST cases of child sexual abuse, of any? WTF?

  • The more you stigmatize something, and single it out for scrutiny, ... and the more you make it verboten, or wrong, or tell people to stay away from it, it almost ALWAYSSSSSS has the opposite effect.
    Religious (morons) basically are a perfect example of this -- Those who were repressed, restrained, and hindered from such things always go overboard off the walls in the extreme other direction when they rebel, and to get to my answer, I think religitards masturbate MORE than anyone.

  • See, this is what I don't understand. Religion asks you to stay celibate until marriage but also doesn't allow you masturbate. How does that work? lol.

  • Religions condemn masturbation? What the heck do they worship LOL

    • Update: Good references to the Bible. Masturbation is not wrong by itself, but your point about getting into immorality is a good observation. There's also a scripture about desire, once it has reached a certain point, brings sin. (James 1:15)

    • lol I just googled it, I myself don't have that knowledge retained. But yeah I just hear about so many people, more so men, that still masturbate even though it's (in a convoluted way) considered wrong. Like the actual act of it isn't but the whole lust part is. It's just interesting to see if anybody would change or how they'd try to justify it otherwise.

    • In this day and age, you have people wanting abortion, gay marriage, war, more money, etc. Do you honestly think masturbation is going to be given up, even if it was wrong?

  • Well that’s another good reason for not being religious…

  • Not me

    Or my religious friend either

    • Oh really? Never, not even once? I don't want to seem too inappropriate but have you never had the urge or do you just fight it off? I mean good on you though for persisting so long, I assume you'd like to wait for marriage?

  • Lets face the facts all young guys masturbate frequently... they just will never admit it It is normal, healthy, good for you and it feels great!!!

  • Yes, I do. Maybe it is a sin, maybe not. But I can't help it.

  • I used to be a religious fanatic, but never had a problem with masturbation. Did it at least once a day. Now I'm an atheist and pansexual and love 3 ways!

  • I still masturbate and have all my life. I was married for a while too.
    I don't think masturbation is going to ruin your chance to get to heaven. I don't think the Good Lord works that way. It is what is in your heart - Do you Love God? Do you appreciate the Universe He has created. Just a Thought.

  • Yeah

  • I am not religious! I have been masturbating every day for over 50 years now!
    I love to play with my hard cock!
    I really really love to shoot my hot load of cum all over my hard cock!

  • Most? Many Christian denominations and some Jewish traditions do not. I'm not sure about Islam, Hinduism, and Buddhism.

    • I updated the question with some examples.

    • "control your own body in a way that is holy and honorable" Any why is masturbation neither of these? God endowed people with a powerful sex drive and the ability to experience pleasure. Why should this be forbidden?

    • I'm not saying it should but it just seems like it's such a "no no" topic religiously.

  • I'm Hindu and yes..

  • Absolutely, sexual liberty is celebrated

  • Everyone I know masturbates

  • really can't control and do sext and masturbate

  • If I do it right I see God

  • Yes. Everyone masturbates except for little children, extreme elderly and mentally handicap.

    Like your body demands food and water, our bodies demand sexual release and orgasms or we become very tense and mentally and emotionally frustrated.

    God created us as sexual beings and when we need sexual release of some sort we have to get it.

    • Well you're wrong on some parts, children quite early on usually will naturally touch themselves and mentally handicapped people can also masturbate, it's just never talked about because of the already taboo nature of being disabled coupled with sexuality. Did you read my examples? Isn't lust part of masturbation? Creating an image inside our minds of doing "immoral" things to your partner, using them a sexual tool to get you off?

    • When the Bible talks about lust/desire its talking about fornication/sleeping around or lusting after someone's else spouse or if you are married lusting after someone else but your spouse. Single people can desire each other which is normal but they can't get sexual except in marriage.

  • Thats not true I got to church every Sunday and I masturbate

  • Priests most definitely

  • God NEVER told ANYONE NOT to masturbate! 🙏

    • But he also never told anyone TO masturbate!

    • I updated the question with some examples.

  • Yeah.
