I will not kiss, hug, hold hands, cuddle, fornicate, shack, indulge in conversation with a man who isn't my husband! I'm not practicing just celibacy- I'm completely abstinence- when it comes to masturbation that depends on the covenant between you and God. Me personally, idc for it either, but have self discipline over my flesh.

  • I personally think true celibacy, in the spiritual sense, includes abstaining from masturbation as well.

    Although, that's would serve a very specific purpose between you and God, like a act of devotion.

    I don't believe masturbation is a sin unless you over indulge and let sexual desire become a priority. But I also belive that applies to all sinful things like the saying goes "everything in moderation"

    • Agreed! I'm under devotion by God ! Serious commitment! I'm not fond of masturbation, but everyone's devotion is defined by their commitment to God.

    • Exactly! Everyone is different and there are levels to spiritual devotion. It's entirely up to the individual how they choose to go about it. We were blesses with free will after all!

  • See you women just don't understand us men. If I stop masturbating then I would literally ejaculate in my sleep and I would be constantly restless with raging hormones and urgent horniness.

    Do you want me to treat you like a person or do you want me to eye you like a piece of meat? Because if I don't get release then within a days I will be perpetually horny and it will be the forefront of my thoughts.

    You know when you really have to piss and that is all you can think about? It's like that.

    • There's more to life than sex sex is beautiful when it's done with the right person and there's commitment. I choose nkt to engage with men who aren't my husband nor see me as a long term commitment/ marriage. If we're friends you'll get treated as such - so on and so on

    • Not I have things to keep me busy then dwell on sex 24/7 especially with a man I'm not building with rather then getting to know someone some men equivalent sex to that / " Why buy the cow when you csn get the milk for free " there's plenty of whores and open legs for that

    • What were men doing before you met that women playing with yourself or getting sex from somewhere else.

  • True celibacy is a vow of sexual abstinence.
    I will not define masturbation as a sin but burning with the insatiable appetite of lust towards another individual is a sin.

    Although I practice celibacy I Do incorporate masturbation to help substitute for my lack of sex life.
    So if celibacy is taking a vow of sexual Abstinence. I'm I practicing celibacy is its true essence.🤔🤔

    • I don't make the rules but celibacy is abstaining from comlelete sexual activity- from what I gathered

    • Yes its the same thing I was thinking 🤔🤔

    • Yes I barley masturbate

  • I guess it’s whatever you want it to be. However, my personal view is that it’s a pretty crazy path to follow for anyone who is sexually mature.

    • To each their own in how they want to view it and move forward it. Not everyone is the same and everyone has their own beliefs. Everyone should be respected regardless.

    • Absolutely. I completely respect how do you choose to live your life, it is not for me to judge.

    • I tell people if you love sex and sexual things to find people who align there- for me I will not engage with a man whose wrapped around in sexual conversation , sexual acts, and etc.. I won't date a man who sleeps around why I'm better suited for a man whose virgin/ celibate/ asexual / demisexual

  • There are reports of monks in the Middle Ages having group masturbation sessions... so that they could remain celibate.

  • Total abstinence from anything erotic.

    • "Would you define masturbation a sin?" It would be defined that way of it was associated with lusting after someone. If you just used a toy without fantasizing, maybe not.

  • No, but then I'm not a christian. But I think that if you really want to be celibate, then surely you'd want abstain from masturbating too, right? Otherwise I don't see the point.

    • I'm just asking a question- furthermore there's many levels to celibacy everyone whose celibate isn't religious

    • I know.

    • I mentioned not being christian because you asked about masturbation being a sin, and I think that word is specifically a christian thing, isn't it?

  • Wow! Not even conversation, huh? That's got to make getting around in day to day life pretty tough, no?

    • Who said anything about talking? I'm not obligated to touch , kiss, or hug a man that's not my husband

    • Less more have sex

    • When you were listing things you would not do with a man you included "indulge in conversation." Perhaps that's not what you meant.

  • IMHO, celibacy is the same as not breathing or eating. Sex is natural and part of what makes a human, human. Not religious dogma meant to control you and natural instincts. Sex is nature's way of saying have fun with life.

    • I'm not having sex with someone because it's deemed normal - I follow God's laws not what society wants me to do sorry

    • Furthermore I wouldn't deal with a man who doesn't follow God's laws

    • "God's laws" and society has nothing to do with natural instinct. Live. :)

  • Masturbation is a heavenly...

    • Masturbation is an independent choice as a substitute for not indulging in consensual sex.

    • Sex ia always awesome but over smart people have lots of drama n headache

    • Masturbation isn't something I'm fond of either , but everyone defines celibacy differently.. I will not kiss , hug , hold hands, or have sex with a man who isn't my husband
