Is masturbation a sin?
If it is, I'll see you in hell!
We can be neighbors
I hope not.
The Bible in Genesis with the story of Onan does. Onan spilled his seed with his brother's wife, and God struck him dead.
I take that as he had sex with her.
Yes . It will make you go blind. 😂😂😂
I'm sorry. I can't read this without my extra strength glasses
It is better to cast your seed upon the ground...
I thought you weren't supposed to spill your seed on the ground
There is only one thing in the world that is a sin: vanilla extract in tuna salad.
If it is, I'm sure Adam brought sin into the world before Eve did.
Sinning is a manmade concept that I do not subscribe to
Same. The subscription fee is ridiculous.
Hehehe, very true
In Christianity, yes
Only in some sects.
Try targeting this poll to different religions and see what you get. My answer: absolutely not
How do you target different groups?
Say "Christians:" or "Hindu:" before it
Fucking no. It's a healthy outlet for sexuality. This type of thinking is archaic. For ducks sake people, stop concerning yourself with other people's genitals if you aren't going to be in contact with them.
I sinned three times today.
Nope. Its a blessing
No, and I try to avoid the word "sin." It isn't terribly useful as a term or as a concept.
You'd have to be pretty bad at it for it to be a sin.
It has far too many health benefits to be sin. And not being religious, I don't care what someone's faith considers sin..
I think it's a part of being human and being a living animal.
Like I said before...
If God didn't want us to do it he wouldn't have put the fun parts within arms reach!
God must not have wanted T. Rex's to masturbate.
He did want them to be Adam and Eve's pets though ( upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/e/e6/Creation_Museum_10.png )
Damn, that's either a very tiny Rex or a very large woman.
Well there were giants back then.
With or without masturbation, we're all still sinners. I've always heard conflicting arguments, and am tired of the debate. If the stats are correct, at least 90% of us do it, and the other 10% are probably less than honest.
There's the real answer right there. If sinning/not sinning is something you think about, then realize that we are all sinners.
If you couldn't care less about sin, then no more need be said really
There doesn't seem to be much of a debate.
No. If it is, then I am going below hell. XD
Same with 99.999% of the population
You might go blind man!
I will wash my hands before touching my eyes lol
Just don't fantasize!
It's not fun if you don't fantasize! 😋
I'd like to know the % who do it without fantasizing. Probably microscopic.
fantasize about what?
I never fantasize about abnormal stuff like incest or rape, It's not possible to do it without thinking about anything
That's kind of my point. I doubt anyone's doing it thinking about the economy or immigration.
Idk why I an sharing this stuff
Lol org I think Donald Trump gets off on deporting illegals XD
Hahaha I'm not even, er, touching that line. You go, Donald!
That is all about a misinterpretation of the sin of Onan. It wasn't onanism (masturbation) but coitus interruptus (pulling out).
I thought it was derogation of duty. He jerked himself off so he couldn't impregnate his brother's wife because it wouldn't be considered his kid if he did. So the sin was pride and disobedience, or something like that.
But I thought that the "masturbation is sin" thing was more an offshoot of Augustinian thought identifying libido as one of the consequences of The Fall and somehow tied to original sin.
Richard, have you been watching Spanktrovision?
I miss Chris
No. It's perfectly healthy, natural, and harmless.
Sorry, I forgot, for women it's obviously a sin.
Oh man that article is amazing. Fantastic satire.
Of course it's a sin for women. That goes without saying.
"Inside the uterine pathways are many blind curves and dead ends, and the female self-gratifier needs to master this labyrinth with the agility of a rat seeking its cheese."
😂😂😂 I'm learning so much about myself!
I think it was a particularly clever and subtle choice not to even *mention* the clitoris.
300,000,000 potential children lost their lives today...captured in a tissue and then coldly flushed away.
Mine usually drown.
RJ wins the internet today! Best comment!
It is when I'm angry.
No, an art.
@screename1 & @political - I know you have thoughts on this.
In fact I do.
I think we agree, don't we poli?
Spill it. I'm ready to hear some views that oppose mine
So what are they?
We do, Screen. Lustful thoughts are sinful, but the action of masturbating is not in itself a sin.
What if your lustful thoughts are about your wife? Is that still a sin?
No, voc, not if they are about your spouse.
What constitutes a lustful thought
Are you sure? I haven't seen anywhere that states if it's about your wife you're ok, it just says lust in a general way. Is it open to interpretation?
The act isn't. If there is fantasy involved that might be.
If it is, I've sinned twice today 😈
I'm ready to hear your confession.
