Ari: A Case for Masturbation… or Not?




Is masturbation a sin or not? As a Christian, I’ve always wondered why the church believes it is a sin. Pastors always quote a part of the Bible to lend credence to the belief that it is a sin.

This passage talks about a certain woman, who had to marry her late husband’s brother in order to continue the family lineage. However, her brother-in-law did not want to impregnate her, so while having sex, just before orgasm, he would withdraw and spill semen on the floor instead of ejaculating inside the woman. God struck the man down because of his wickedness in not wanting to impregnate the woman.

Every time I read that passage, I do not understand how anyone would use it as an explanation for masturbation being a sin. The man wasn’t masturbating, he was having sex! God was punishing this man for something other than masturbation. Some also use this passage to discourage contraception (the contraception issue is a topic for another day).

The Bible also mentions in detail, all kinds of sexual acts, perversions and sins, both Old and New Testaments. Why was there no mention of masturbation?

Masturbation (also known as wanking, jerking off, jilling) is the sexual stimulation of parts of one’s own body, usually the genitals for sexual arousal or other sexual pleasure, usually to the point of orgasm.

The most common reasons adults give for masturbating are:

  • to relieve sexual tension
  • achieve sexual pleasure
  • to achieve sexual pleasure when partners are unavailable
  • to learn your pleasure spots, so you can tell your partner what works for you

Many people think masturbation only occurs when a person does not have a sex partner. In fact, people who have regular sex partners masturbate a lot, regardless of if their partner satisfies them sexually or not.

Some of the benefits of masturbation are:

  • physically and emotionally help you learn how you like to be touched and stimulated sexually
  • provide sexual pleasure for people without partners or absent partners, including the elderly
  • provide sexual pleasure for people who choose to abstain from sexual activities with another persons (could be to avoid fornication, adultery or just taking a break from having sex)
  • reduce stress and release sexual tension
  • relieve menstrual cramps

Most times, we associate masturbation with conscious efforts and actions. What happens when you are sleeping/dreaming and having an intense sexual experience; you start criss-crossing your legs in your sleep, then you get the big O! When I was pregnant, I had so many dream-induced orgasms (and no, I don’t have a spirit husband *side-eye*). So am I supposed to wake up and start asking for forgiveness?

I don’t know how wet dreams and sleep-induced sexual experiences happen with guys (please educate us in the comments box).

There are also couples who watch each other masturbate. Is masturbation allowed within confines of marriage, as long as your partner is present? What about phone-sex, skype sex and all other forms of virtual sex/masturbation.

All I know is if masturbation is interfering with your daily activities, job, social life and responsibilities, then you have a problem. This can also be said of many basic activities like eating, drinking, etc.

So what’s your take on masturbation? Have you ever masturbated (with fingers/hands or with an apparatus)? Do you feel ashamed after masturbating? Why?

    Wow….. you forgot to mention that masturbation is an addiction and has destroyed so many marriages, relationships and lives Masturbation is a sin no matter how we try to justify it. St Paul in his letter to the Corinthians (I Cor 6 MSG) identifies two kinds of sex :sex with intimacy and otherwise. Obviously, masturbation happens to fall under the type of sex without intimacy and this kind of sex leads to loneliness. A heroine addict is no better than someone addicted to masturbation.

      Herion is not healthy for the body but masturbating just like food is healthy for the body ( facts). Please stop with all this religious dogmas, it will still not lead you to heaven (or will it) like how many so called Christians bow down to the cross in the name of Jesus, isn’t that bowing down to a craven image against the Ten Commandments/ idolizing God another abomination but guess what we are all part of it, like how people bow down to the cross in front of the altar. Masturbate when you feel the urge, is healthy for you. Stop following useless tradition. If eating healthy food makes you an addict so be it, at least that what keeps you healthy and strong like masturbating it reduces the urge to get std from other plus is a workout.

      Here come the holier than thou people!!!!!!! Masturbation is not an addiction o, it could be an addiction! and so is anything in life when abused…. like she mentioned, drinking, eating, sleeping exercising to mention a few…..I am so sure almost everyone bashing masturbates but then yeah….they r ready to act like holy and shame others. I am still waiting to see the word masturbation in the bible… the only thing we get is people interpreting different verses to mean do not masturbate. still not seen do not sexually pleasure your own self because it is a sin, not by even Peter or Paul, but adultery , fornication and even the meanings are stated cleary, even eating too much- gluttony……

      Cheating partners don’t destroy marriages but masturbation? Abeg shut up there. Anything can destroy marriages. Like you don’t have your boss dry humping on you, is that a sin, no( no be sex )-the mind nko- a little story-I went to corona and we had a pole ( a stripper pole) we did all kinds of stunting on it but we didn’t see it as a stripper pole in our play ground. If someone dry humps on you or masturbate, the person might not be thinking dirty but just waiting to cum. Like me and rest on the poles nothing dirty, in my mind, except all I saw a pole to swing on and line up with the rest to use it.

      Kato, you, shut up. She only stated the obvious, which is that the author did not include any defect. Masturbation when an addiction is a pure and complete sickness that can destroy ur sexual orientation. Do some research please. You all like researching advantages and not disadvantages

      Kaeto, please tell them. Nigerians are just a bunch of religious yet ungodly people. And most of those who put up the religious front masturbate in their closets. For me, masturbation is healthy. You are not being defiled by others in the name of seeking sexual pleasure and to a large extent, it has saved my marriage. I have been married for 18 years. Sexual pleasure is no longer a priority for my husband. I mean, in the last 8 years, I dont think he has asked me if I reach orgasm neither has he helped me to. After several complaints, I have decided to “help myself”’. Lets leave religious dogmas and face reality. Masturbation works. Simple!

      Oh puhleazzzzze!!!!!!!! *Side Eyes*. You know there are sex addicts right? Does that make sex a sin???? Kukuma tell married people to siddon dey look each other and not have sex because some people out there are addicted to sex.

      Truth is you can be addicted to many things including but not limited to: sex, porn, masturbation, drinking, stealing, reading, watching TV, preaching, evangelizing, heck, you can be addicted to your religion sotay the thing dey turn you kolo mental, and many more.

      Ladies, please explore your bodies, and know what works for you. Don’t let anyone brainwash you in their attempts to CONTROL your body. Lai lai, don’t let them.

      bulls**t f**king s**! lol what do you know about the bible? Alot of us nowadays now believe we are second to Jesus when in our daily lives we dont even practice anything the bible say, we quote for other sins different from how we sin. We all sin and masturbation is not part of anything written in the bible as the writer has clearly stated, God only punished the man in the bible because he didn’t want to impregnate the woman. For me thats still bulls**t, NO MAN knows why God does anything, we do not understand the way of God simply because he is GOD, if you do, tell me why christians die in accidents even after praying to God, Christianity as a religion is make-believe, you might not understand what that is, i know alot of christian fanatics will have one or two things to say about this but at the end of the day its each to its own and if you believe you are all clean and you operate the bible with the almighty God then you can come at me simply because you know. and thats very okay. Masturbation has nothing to do with your faith, or how you serve God, you can say you know but you can only prove to me you know if you have been to heaven and witness God’s judgement and he’s condemned anyone in your presence while you were there in heaven, not adeboye nor oyedepo knows what the judgement day would b like, we have all read the book of revelations, which describes end time, we dont know if these things would actually happen , because yes random things from the bible has come to pass but alot of it hasnt when they re meant to have manifested in good times, like when unbelievers randomly kills people worshiping GOD in the house of God, but what do we do here? We start to give excuses and exemptions to all Gods declarations to his people in the bible that they shall not die but live, but when it comes to things like masturbation and other things we kill ourselves and judge each other calling people that indulge in certain different sin from your own sin a sinner and start quoting bible passages. In conclusion lol masturbation is not a sin my people lets enjoy this life be good people/christian/muslim/Buddhist and whatnot at the of the day being a good person all in all is the most important thing even as a christian. thank you lol i’m a christian (mountain of fire)

      The funny thing is that 99% of women think it is a SIN and actually abstain from the act.

      While probably 99% of men agree it is a sin, but only 30% or less actually abstain.

      Why are women more willing to be masturbation-free/ virgins than men?

    How does someone masturbate to reduce Menstural cramps ni to ri olorun. Very durty behaviour I must say.

    • Hmm

      August 19, 2015 at 4:17 am

      Biko say what you know. The contractions during an orgasm work faster and better than any painkiller does on my very intense memorial cramps.

    • Eve

      August 19, 2015 at 7:29 am

      Exactly, I was just going to say the same thing. Studies have shown that the body releases a hormone called oxytocin during an orgasm and that hormone eases pains and makes you feel good. So therefore it is a very good way to ease pain anytime.

    • sass

      August 19, 2015 at 7:50 am

      So you are putting your hand abi a vibrator in somewhere that has blood? Hiss. Please go and use Felvin or Cocodamol. It’s still very durty whether your pain is relieved or not.

    • Hmm

      Some of us are allergic to certain classes of pain relievers and are restricted to a few which take hours to work. When you’re rolling on the floor in pain unable to get up before even a drop of blood can come through, share your sanctimony. Until then, jefo men.

      August 20, 2015 at 4:36 am

      After an orgasm, your body releases endomorphines, that’s why you shutdown to sleep, however, endomorphines also produce the same effect as painkillers, hence the reduction of pain you feel.

      August 19, 2015 at 4:07 pm

      I cant even remember what prompted me to start masturbating at a young age, Was it the sexual abuse, followed by curiosity i frankly cant remember. But what i do remember was no one ever told me it was wrong yet i felt horrible after every time i did it. No one needed to tell me that my neighbor touching me in private places when no one was looking was wrong. All i had to go by was the feeling of utter despair each time it happened.

      I was 25 when i suddenly stopped. I quit cold turkey. I had just given my life to Christ, I came home that sunday, wept profoundly and now im 29 and i have not masturbated till date. This is someone who was addicted to masturbation. What i have to go by is my personal experience, what i know only God did for me.

      I believe When in doubt, please pray. I dont know what God you all serve, but i want to believe you communicate with Him/Her. So if you want to know if masturbation is wrong, i urge you to pray.

    • ElessarisEllendil

      August 19, 2015 at 3:10 am

      Hmm, this your thesis interesting sha. I mean its general knowledge that Rape is rarely about the sex itself but the high that comes out of domination, that cheats will be cheats and that being extremely poor may be due to extreme laziness, but please explain how masturbation solves poverty, I’m extremely interested

    • Sparks and Tingles

      August 19, 2015 at 5:50 am

      I wrote that with the assumption that the urge for sex rather than the need to dominate drive people to rape, same goes for cheating. Very poor people who have no business bringing any child into the world end up bearing more children than they can afford to raise instead of just wanking away the urge.

    • nikky

      August 19, 2015 at 7:25 am

      to answer your question, don’t think he/she meant that masturbation can cure poverty. its just reducing the chances of having children they cannot financially afford to raise. if poor people took care of themselves as it were until they are in a better financial situation then, they can do the do with somebody other than themselves.

    I’ve been wanking since I was sixteen and itd a very difficult habit to break. Even when I had 4 or 5 girlfriends at the same time, and now that I’m married with kids, I still wank. Sometimes I find it useful to wank a couple of hours before a hot sex date with my wife. This way I can last for a very long time with her having “cleared the road”.. Some porn actors use this technique too but it doesn’t work all the time and you have to get the timing right. Kids and work makes it difficult for her to have time or the right frame of mind to have regular sex, so whenever we do it has to count and she has to climax.

    I don’t feel masturbation is a seen as it has allowed me to stay faithful to my wife in the last few years. I’ve had my wife wank me off on 4 or 5 occasions but I don’t think she liked the experience. I’ve wanked and blown her off on countless occasions when she was finding it difficult to climax naturally or I was just too tired. She never has a problem with that, in fact I’ve bought her several vibrators and small buzzing appliances that we use together sometimes. I always make sure that the apparatus is no more than 8.5 inches because I don’t want her getting used to anything that is longer than mine. Occasionally we treat ourselves to some class B’s with the usual champagne, fine brandy or both. We also use hardcore porn occasionally. I pride myself in knowing that when it comes to bringing my wife to climax, my hit rate is 95% – BY ANY MEANS POSSIBLE.

      Damn!!!! Am I still on bella naija or a different site? I got confused with all these details. Reasonable Men should comment more often,. It’s nice that you care about the pleasure of your wife bcos a lot of men just don’t care. I’m laughing hard at, “I don’t want her to get used to anything longer than mine”. Men, and their ego. It’s hard to accept, masturbation is what is keeping you faithful to your wife but I guess it’s better than doing it with different women outside of your marriage.

      I’m not being religious or anything but masturbation does nothing for me. Toys doesn’t work. I prefer the real thing.

  12. me

    August 19, 2015 at 12:28 am

    That chapter of the bible means something else. Let’s go to the chapter that speaks about lust. When you masturbate, you do so with impure thoughts of you and another right? Now that is the major issue here. If you can touch yourself as you like without those thoughts then fine.

    Now get this right, the fact that we do things or 70% or more of the world’s population participates or supports an act does not always make it right. Does your conscience say it’s wrong? That’s who you should listen to, not some educated atheist, looking for companion in hell.

    Lastly, don’t tell me to chill, that she just asked a question… o no she didn’t. She wrote this article from one side of the bench, which could make me and many others to agree with her…. writer ndi aguuu

      bless you, I started masturbating when I was pretty young, teens to be exact and I always, always felt like I was violating myself. I’d feel dirty for days. Mind you, I didn’t even do the finger penetration part, all I did was stroke myself and wiggle my bum on a chair in a way that would elicit pleasure. I became addicted – anytime I felt like, I did it. I could sneak off or hide and all that. I had to pray to break that addiction, it took a long time cuz I still “fell” at least once in 3 months. I finally overcame, I’ve been “masturbation-free” for 3 years and I trust Him to help me stay that way till I get married. Like you said, it’s how it makes you feel. If you feel you can jerk/jill off and still feel the Holy Ghost moving through you, ride on sis/bro. For me, I always felt dirty and wrong and I knew I had to stop it. My opinion, not bashing anyone…

If you want to wank… by all means… go ahead. the fact that I think it wrong DOES NOT make me a backward thinker or a freak in anyway.

      @ElessarisEllendil, please is the Catholic church against masturbation?
      My boyfriend is Catholic, a commited one. We are both non-virgins, but in this relationship, we are being celibate (100%).
      I am against masturbation and I want to know if he does it, so when next I have the opportunity, I will ask him.
      I just want to know what the Catholic church says about it. I will also appreciate if you van refer me to related reading materials from the Catholic church.

    • IJustSidonDeyLook

      August 19, 2015 at 10:44 am

      Yes the Catholic Church does. go to or for all questions you might have on sex, porn, masturbation etc. You can also check for this video on youtube ‘Romance without Regrets’.
      To those Christians out there that want practical answers… for anyone to ever understand this sex related topics, you have to understand the THEOLOGY OF THE BODY (the site should have good audio or video excerpts from talks from Jason Evert. God bless you.
      When I see articles just as this, especially those that start with ‘I am a Christian… but…’ I just sigh, there’s always a bomb coming. True Christianity, across denominations, was never meant to be popular anyway.

    Hahhahahaha what coincidence!! I just got a big O from masturbating ten mins ago!! Lol. yeah i know. TMI. We on the topic though ???.
    I personally see nothing wrong in masturbating. I’d rather satisfy myself sexually than cheat. You also run no risk of stds. My fiancé has been out of town for work for a week now. I’ve been very horny and holding on. So I decided to satisfy myself a few mins ago with my hands. I feel no guilt. I’m not scared to tell my fiancé either. In fact, that turns him on.
    I also learned my body via masturbation. Eventhough the boo is quite experienced, I made it even better by teaching him my body; how to make love to me, my sensitive spots etc. He also communicated he’s to me. That man can literally look at me and I’m all wet.

      Omg! Omg!Omg! That makes the two of us ooo. I could have sworn that you took the thought right out of my mind. I was just out of the bathroom where I took myself to a very intense big O and the next thing I see is this article. I was like wtf! I lafffed so hard like crazy. Twas just too much of a coincidence. Well, I really dunno what to say whether it’s right or wrong but as a single woman I used to feel a lot of guilt after masturbating and even prayed to God concerning it but as a married woman I don’t feel that pang of guilt. I guess the guilt comes from the same place that tells us that sex outside of marriage is wrong but most people do it anyway. So just do u jare. Sin is sin anyway and we’re all sinners .

    Honestly, I have masturbated once (that was a very very long time ago) and I was so ashamed of the act that I knelt down and asked God for forgiveness and that was because of my belief that masturbation is a sin. Actually, I did it because I felt like having sex but I wasn’t in any relationship as at that time. Please, we should understand that it’s not everything that we get to see in the holy book. How can one masturbate because he/she wants to avoid the sin of fornication/adultery? Strange. You discover your ‘hot zones’ with your partner and not by masturbation. What about trying out exercises to ease tension and stress? I can try to listen to some of the reasons why people masturbate but the one I don’t really get is why some do it before the very eyes of their partners. Ah ah?! E get as e be nah. In this life eh, you become whatever you ‘train’ yourself to be. If you start up with masturbation as solution to your sex life, it just sticks and becomes a part of your life. I’m married and my husband is always on the move. When I get ‘in the mood’ in his absence, all I do is just flash back on the ones we did and fantasy about it or we talk over the phone. We tell each other how we feel and what we’ll do when we get together again. Gbam! And that does it for me because I have not allowed masturbation into my life schedule. Anyways, this is just my opinion.

    hmm i still have this debate myself, the christian thing that verse doesn’t do it for me but the bit that gets me is that sometimes when masturbating its really hard not to think of someone and that’s when the sin comes in lusting after someone, if you’ve somehow gotten around this let a girl know, i’ve been struggling

    August 19, 2015 at 2:01 am

    Sin? I deny. As a divorcee… mastubation is my option. Healthier than humping here and there. At a”secret party” (vendors of sex enhancement devices demonstrate on how to use a variety of sex toys targeting couples, bachelors and spinsters). Nobody is hurt as one explores and discovers his/her body. However, very brave of this author to discuss this topic.

      Be quoting the bible there, sogbo! The same old testament does not frown on rape. Infact, it permits the father of a rape victim to marry off his daughter to the rapist, and even collect money in return. The bible also condones the stoning of a rape victim!! Can anyone in this modern day say they will apply that bull shit crap that is found in the “holy book” to their life this day????

    i do masturbate. By myself. When with my man if I wanna go at it again and he is not ready and sometimes when I need to relieve some stress. I don’t feel bad one bit about it and I’m a Christian too. I’d rather masturbate than have a one night stand, especially when I was single.

  26. ElessarisEllendil

    August 19, 2015 at 2:55 am

    Hi, I’m “ElessarisEllendil” and I’m a “Fapchoholic”.

    You see, I am one of the people with a problem that you mentioned at the end of your article. Note everybody about to flame me that this is my opinion and as such I’ll try to go about in a logical ordered manner. Ohh and this will be very long, its helping me relieve my insomnia so bear with me.

    My problem with masturbation personally is rooted in my personality, It goes against the two things I hold most dear, my faith and self discipline.

    Let’s get the religious bits out of the way first, I mean no disrespect, but I disagree with your Protestant Pastors, Onan’s death was not about Masturbation, rather it was about honour and the sanctity of life. Onan had a duty to Tamar and his dead Brother, one that he knew full well, he was to Father a Son that could carry on his Brother’s line, he willfully and selfishly denied Tamar this. Note also the importance of a male child in Ancient/Biblical times, not just to carry on the family line, but also to help the Woman do the “heavy lifting”, defend the tribe in times of War, tend to the Woman in her old age e.t.c. Now you’re beginning to get a sense of the gravity of Onan’s selfishness, he would rather everybody suffer than do the simple act of “thrust, pause and finish.”. In my opinion, Onan was punished A. For selfishness and B. For dishonouring Tamar, it doesn’t take a particularly active imagination to imagine what a childless Widow who’s first Husband died mysteriously and remains barren with a second Husband would be going through. Even today, the woman always gets the blame.

    Secondly, them pesky Catholic rules forbid it for me, From the Catechism: “By masturbation is to be understood the deliberate stimulation of the genital organs in order to derive sexual pleasure. “Both the Magisterium of the Church, in the course of a constant tradition, and the moral sense of the faithful have been in no doubt and have firmly maintained that masturbation is an intrinsically and gravely disordered action.” “The deliberate use of the sexual faculty, for whatever reason, outside of marriage is essentially contrary to its purpose.” For here sexual pleasure is sought outside of “the sexual relationship which is demanded by the moral order and in which the total meaning of mutual self-giving and human procreation in the context of true love is achieved.”. Basically, we take our belief in the sanctity of infant life and the marriage thing way overboard, you ain’t getting none Son unless its with a vagina signed and approved by the Church and you’re pretty much stuck with it for life. I know, I know its seems an impossible standard, but I’m the sort of Gung Ho narcissist that enjoys the sort of things.
    Back in my struggle days, I always used to have this intense feeling of guilt anytime I rubbed one out. The sense of guilt is however not a Catholic thing, I like to think nobody feels comfortable masturbating infront of say their Mother, most Masturbation addicts have a phobia of getting caught, In my opinion, not worth the stress.

    Thirdly, it is a Sin, Women may be able to find loopholes because they’re obviously not expending their eggs during Masturbation but for Men, there are no loopholes especially if you believe in the sanctity of life and the virtue of chastity. No, not Chastity as in No Sex ever! that would be dreary unless you’re called to Priesthood. I meant chastity as in“no sex with anyone other than your spouse.”. The most obvious medium of masturbation is pornography, now you may want to argue, masturbating to pornstars isn’t fornication/adultery, let’s agree to disagree but obviously you’re lusting after Lisa Ann, Jayden James Carmen Hayes e.t.c. Last I checked Lust is a sin for all Christians. From the Catholic POV: the Church teaches that sex is a great gift, which serves unitive and procreative purposes. Masturbation ignores both of these purposes and is inherently a selfish act of pleasure; in essence it is a great disrespect to the ideal of sex as the physical expression of total love between two people, love so powerful that through it we are able to share God’s ability to create new life.
    That being said, it’s a really easy sin to rationalize. Our bodies can crave that physical stimulation with an intensity that rivals hunger or thirst; it can easily reach the point of physical addiction. It often seems to be a “victimless” sin. For better or worse, at a young age when Harlequin wasn’t “corrupting me”, the Church left me with a high ideal of married sex, this is just me holding out for my “I told you so” moment, if it proves less than true.
    Poor jokes aside, I don’t believe that any teaching of the church is meant simply as an “aspirational statement”. It may take a long time; it may be something you struggle with your entire life; you may never quite kick the habit. But the church does not say “try not to masturbate too much”, just like it would not say “try not to murder too much”, and I believe we are called to devote our best efforts into adhering to this teaching.

    Fourthly, I know a lot of Pornstars, their names atleast. Lisa Ann, Gianna Michaels, Alanah Rae, Jayden James, Hitomi Tanaka, believe me, I could go on and on, my knowledge is close to encyclopedic on this, I was “that guy” in secondary school that could give reviews and tell which stars were “boring” e.t.c. However I grew up eventually and I realized something, these women had lives outside pornography, they had friends e.t.c and I had managed to reduce them to just pixels of sex, solely existing for my sexual pleasure, a nadir for me was a particular scene that started with an interview and I didn’t give a shit what this Woman, a fellow human being was saying, I just wanted to skip to the “good part”. I was the sort to have folders(I’m organized like that?), different girls for different moods. I had managed to reduce fellow Human beings to sexual objects , eventually it began to affect my relationship with others, how charming, polite or attentive I was to you depending on how high you ranked on my scale of 1-10(honestly I still rank women, habits die hard but atleast now I make an effort to be generally polite). Generally, you might be the 1% that doesn’t masturbate to pornography or other Women other than your partner, congratulations, you’re special but does you partner mean solely sex to you??

    Time to step away from the murky emotion filled waters of religion into the cold waters of logic and the second thing that means the most to me,Self- discipline!
    Let me put the moral crusade aside, there’s nothing inherently wrong with masturbation. It’s natural. Everyone does it; hell, even monkeys do it. I just choose not to for my own reasons. If you keep masturbating, that’s totally cool — there’s nothing wrong or bad with it. You just have to ask yourself if being like “everybody” is the sort of person you want to be.
    The honest truth about masturbation is it comes down to you and what you want, for every point I make about how masturbation is addictive, let’s play a “I told you so game”, try going masturbation free for 2 months, especially guys. You’ll get my addictive point, from my POV, one of the things which frightens me the most is Lou Gehrig’s disease, the thought of not being in control of my own body, masturbation is the slightly less lethal version.
    I could go on a long lecture about dopamine levels and how our brains continually crave more and more and how you eventually spiral from masturbating solely to your partner, to pioneering new techniques and trying out new genres and new kinks, how odds are it will negatively affect your sex life, you know when you begin comparing and contrasting, making demands your partner may not be able or not want to meet. You’ll call me out for slippery slope logic and you’ll be 100% right, the God’s honest truth is Sure, I like to think that I have good reason to believe what I do about excessive masturbation and porn use. My beliefs are well-founded in reasonable hypotheses based on known information about the brain and addiction, and those hypotheses match many live experiences I know about(we “Fapchoholics” actually have a support system, don’t laugh, the internet is a weird& beautiful place, so I have real life examples of its pros and cons, to which I personally can testify). Some of those beliefs even seem to be gaining some acceptance in the world of mainstream psychology. But, if you’re looking for an empirical study documenting the physical and psychological effects of long-term fapstinence, that study simply doesn’t exist. Like many other diets and personal health and wellness plans, the scientific establishment has not yet had the opportunity to study us in detail hopefully one day — hopefully soon — it will. Then we’ll be able to see more clearly whether what we do here amounts to anything more than the placebo effect. Until then, you have a choice, you can be mainstream or you can be niche, however judging by how much better niche music is, BellaNaija Indie-Rock/Jazz/Classical/House fans you can testify, I say be niche all the way.
    Again, the above are my personal opinions, feel free to demolish the likes button on my behalf if you agree, if you don’t we’re unlikely to change each others minds. History will be the Judge.

      By the way, because you were addicted to masturbation to the point of having organised folders for different moods doesn’t mean that the rest of us who aren’t addicted have the same problem. Your apparent OCD is charming, and I appreciate that you are only just explaining your stance, but an addict’s eschewal of the item of their addiction doesn’t make said item bad for everybody else. The same with ex-alcoholics’ and their avoidance of alcohol.

      I understand your POV and would have agreed with you 7 – 8 years ago. But after being married for that long to a man who’s completely disinterested in sex (I would have argued before that they didn’t exist, and no he’s not gay and doesn’t have a side chick), if I do not want to begin having sex with strangers, mastubation is my ONLY option. If he was willing to work on it, I probably would have been hopeful. We were celibate before we were married for ‘religious’ reasons. We are still celibate after marriage. This year alone, the last time we had sex was 6 months ago and this isn’t the first time.

      I read the replies to your comment to see if someone had already addressed what I’m about to say but I noticed Kingsley took the piss with his revelations. Lol
      Anyways, ElessarisEllendil, from what you wrote (which is impressive), its safe to conclude the Cathecism (not sure I got that right) is only against UNMARRIED people masturbating. And that doesn’t make masturbation wrong in itself, it just makes it equivalent to all other forms of sex which are only acceptable in the confines of marriage and with your partner.
      I’m going to ignore the slightly condescending manner you spoke of protestants because I like your mind.

      Nonsense talk! Lemme just say the one that is paining me the most in this balderdash you typed. So I should not have sexual relations with my husband in my pregnant state as missionary style is absolutely impossible now. Please go and sit down somewhere with this nonsense. God made sex to be pleasurable biko otherwise if it were just for procreating it would have just been like taking a dump – nowhere near as pleasurable as an orgasm and the feelings that come with coitus with a loved one. Pleasurable sex comes in so many different forms. Also, most women cannot achieve orgasm during penetrative sex with their partner via missionary style, I found this to be true personally at any rate. You are obviously a selfish lover to think this way.

      Come sef, I don’t even know why I bothered to respond to someone that can’t even spell his name correctly.

    Seriously i dont think its good or bad except what you believe about it. However y’all need to understand the facts is there is a spiritual dimension to it esp those who do it while watching porn. I was once an addict and good lord knows it wasnt easy at all,i had ask for forgiveness a millionth time and always feel guilty perhaps i was too spiritually minded and all that plus i have never dated before (yes i mean it, im 56/2) which must have been the result of continous masturbation that kill any interest in the opposite sex. I dnt know if its sin or not but i always feel bad after doing it ,still justify it because i have a high sexdrive and instead of me sleeping around and breaking heart along, i better stay my corner.
    Btw i still conssider myself a Virgin lolz.

    The Bible never explicitly mentions masturbation or states whether or not masturbation is a sin. The Scripture most frequently pointed to in regards to masturbation is the story of Onan in Genesis 38:9-10. Some interpret this passage as saying that “spilling your seed” on the ground is a sin. However, that is not precisely what the passage is saying. God condemned Onan not for “spilling his seed” but because Onan refused to fulfill his duty to provide an heir for his brother. The passage is not about masturbation, but rather about fulfilling a family duty. A second passage sometimes used as evidence for masturbation’s being a sin is Matthew 5:27-30. Jesus speaks against having lustful thoughts and then says, “If your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away.” While there are parallels between this passage and masturbation, it is unlikely that masturbation was what Jesus was alluding to.

    While the Bible nowhere explicitly states that masturbation is a sin, there is no question as to whether the actions that lead to masturbation are sinful. Masturbation is nearly always the result of lustful thoughts, sexual stimulation, and/or pornographic images. It is these problems that need to be dealt with. If the sins of lust, immoral thoughts, and pornography are forsaken and overcome, masturbation will become a non-issue. Many people struggle with guilty feelings concerning masturbation, when in reality, the things that led to the act are far more worthy of repentance.

    There are some biblical principles that can be applied to the issue of masturbation. Ephesians 5:3 declares, “Among you there must not be even a hint of sexual immorality, or of any kind of impurity.” It is hard to see how masturbating can pass that particular test. The Bible teaches us, “So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God” (1 Corinthians 10:31). If you cannot give God glory for something, you should not do it. If a person is not fully convinced that an activity is pleasing to God, then it is a sin: “Everything that does not come from faith is sin” (Romans 14:23). Further, we need to remember that our bodies have been redeemed and belong to God. “Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your body” (1 Corinthians 6:19-20). This great truth should have a real bearing on what we do with our bodies. In light of these principles, the conclusion that masturbation is a sin is biblical. Clearly, masturbation is not glorifying to God; it does not avoid the appearance of immorality, nor does it pass the test of God’s having ownership over our bodies.

      How my friend do you explain the fact that despite my extreme holy-holy behaviour (absolutely true) when I was 15, did I get my first orgasm while dreaming I was riding a horse?! I spilt my seed in my pyjamas! Does that mean God is going to punish me for spilling my seed too? The guilt of which we speak is because of religious dogma. Why so tense? Abeg free yaself and have a wank.

      Please shut up there.

      Which kind lustful thoughts? Abeg have a seat before you say nonsense.

      Isn’t lustful thoughts what causes a man to have sex with his wife?

      Or doesn’t he caress her with his right hand?

      Abeg. shift there.

      The same way it is ok for married couples because they are married.

      the same it is ok for singles because they are single.

      The problem is when you are unmarried/unfaithful— The sin is not to God, but unto yourself and others… You risk STD’s, bearing a child out of wedlock, abortion and falling out of love with your spouse.

      It really is that simple

    Let us not encourage what some cannot bear, the bible talks about if what you are doing doesnt look bad to you but others are struggling to get out of it, dont reinforced it by being insensitive. I am not a bible scholar, i know the scriptures by heart not by verses and chapters.
    Testimony time lolz
    I was once an addict and porn addict too as it really affect everythg about me then: school, spiritual life, communication, objectifying women as just a means for sexual pleasure and all that. The shame and the guilt are REAL not because sombori told me but i jes feel bad after doing it
    If someone needs help as to my recovery process, you are welcome. Especially those addicted to porn. I am not an expert but we can walk the road together. I have been there, done that, got the TShirt and sold it off later

    Masturbation is a SIN!!! Like a few people have mentioned, it occurs when one lust after someone in their heart and wishes the person is the one doing whatever he or she is doing to him or her self. It is a very bad habit to break from but through willingness and complete grace and mercy from God one can be delivered from it if sincerely one truly wants to stop it. As children of God we were created in the likeness and image of God & He sure didn’t put masturbation on any one of us. How does one begin to masturbate? I believe sexual abuse from a tender age is a major cause of it. I know this because I’m still praying for complete deliverance from the spirit of masturbation. I hate myself after engaging in the act and although I ask God to forgive me, I feel ashamed to stand in His presence afterwards. I know this kind only comes out with extensive prayer and fasting. May God help us all and deliver us from every lustful character that does not glorify His name in our lives. Amen!

    • treasure

      August 19, 2015 at 9:49 am

      The first step is acknowledging that it is a sin, then do not only ask for forgiveness but also for deliverance from the hold masturbation has on you. Next, try to engage in other activities when you feel the urge (sing, pray, be with people, etc) till the urge passes. And most importantly, abstain from films and all that provoke the tendency. The more you overcome, the stronger you get and soon you will be alone at home for days and not feel the pressure at all. I’m living witness. God bless you dear.

      i have something to say about lust tho.they tell us sex is a sin, they say when u are dating, u guys can want each other but you shouldnt get to the point of sex..they say its fine to want to do wicked suff to someone, its even normal cos well, if u dont feel that way before marriage, then ur sex life as couples will be, if wanting someone and imagining them doing oh very wickedly nice things to u is a sin, arent we all going to hell? that hormone that goes into operation when u are with ur boo u want to marry or not sef, that is going to lead u to hell right, cos its lust right? is that feeling not lust? when u guys start kissing and he’s getting hard and vice versa and then u both pull back..that very moment was lust right?am i thinking straight?

    to summarize most of the comment here…..”I FEEL it is not a sin….. I’m a Christian”
    the first sin here is Idolatry, you have all made up a God in minds that’s ok with what you feel is ok.
    Lust – masturbation occurs with Images and sexual thoughts involving a non participating individual processed in the mind of the person masturbating.

    “Flee from sexual immorality. All other sins a man commits are outside his body, but he who sins sexually sins against his own body.” The bodies of believers are the “temple of the Holy Spirit”…….(Bibeli Mimo)

    He is my first ever and he has never been able to make me orgasm because he is a very selfish lover. I am not very experienced, so i would love for him to teach me how to be a good lover to him, but no, it ain’t happening. I love sucking his dick, testicles very slowly, kissing his whole body, bum and ears, slowly tonguing him and pleasing him. When it comes to thrusting, i do my best, but he is not always patient and expect me to do like a porn girl. This misbehaviour of his encouraged me to watch porn in order to teach myself how to please him, but instead of helping it corrupted my mind ad whenever i was in bed, i was fastfucking, spiting and trying to be someone i was not. He too felt it was out of character and said he was enjoying the way i was giving it to him slowly, so i stopped watching other people having sex. Nobody is born a sex expert, the more you do it, the better you become at it. The more loving, patient,open-minded your lover, the sweeter the love making. My boyfriend is very selfish, so i am pleasing him and not being pleased. He does not like to go down on me and suck me to orgasm as he finds it dirty, all the contrary to me. When i do something wrong, the response is always cold. Once i had yeast infection and i had never experienced it or knew what it was. I actually developed it because i was over washing my private in order to be good for him. We had sex, but my libido was not there and i was extremely dry. He got upset with me because i could not cum and was as dry as the Sahara. He refused to be affectionate towards me, because according to him “what’s the point, you will not even feel anything”. This hurt me really bad, plus my bladder was irritating, i was painfully peeing every 5 min. I made an appointment with the gynaecologist and tests revealed i was suffering from yeast infection. I was given a treatment and since then, i am very careful how i clean my private, only with water and i make sure no longer to go deep into my vagina as it self cleans. I clean my private lips and all that should be gently cleaned without causing further damages as i used to. All vaginal soaps and perfume are banned for good as advised by the doctor. I also try my best to wear cotton underwear’s and no tight pants. I sleep naked whenever i can and i now drink so much water. My boyfriend has been away for sometimes now, so i could not try out with him to find out whether i was no longer dry down there. I initially looked down with a mirror and it was very scary how dry i was there and i cried a river. Since doing all the above, things have improved so much. I bought a vibrator and tried it on my lips and clito and i became wet, something i had never experienced with my boyfriend to the point i became addicted to the toy. Then i told myself that i should try masturbating to know my sensitive area, my body and what works for me. It took me ages to convince myself into seriously doing it cos it felt somehow awkward and wrong to do such without a partner. Then, a month ago i succeeded and again i cried a river. I can cum, i can shake with pleasure, it feels like i am being electrocuted, it is orgasmic and so enjoyable. I have done it over and over again on my own and same result, wet wet wet, no longer dry. Next time my boyfriend is around, i will force teach him how to press my button and please me. I love for him to be gentle all throughout and not rush. I feel like a woman at last!

    Maybe it’s sin, maybe it’s not. I can’t tell and can’t judge because I’m guilty too. I indulge in this (sinful) act because I love sex and can’t always have it when I want. Rather than cheat, I just fix myself up #wink# I also have very bad menstrual cramps and it really helps to ease the pain. Sometimes I feel guilty, sometimes I don’t. I am very normal, happily married with a daughter.

    In my opinion masturbation is natural. It can happen in sleep. Small children innocently do it and for them it is not synonymous with porn – just a natural curiosity. However if you feel it is a sin then yes you condemn yourself by doing it. Based on your dogma ,Your conscience will judge you leading you to chronic heslth ptoblems like anxiety attacks, depression self loathing. These are chronic health problems that destroy life. Catholic priest do not get married based on their proclaimed faith it doesn’t make them holier. Some people can never be allowed to masturbating becos their faith forbade it. I myself enjoy the benefits of masturbation in moderation. The long and short of the matter is to each his own .

    Dear writer do you masturbate? Very often masturbation isn’t a lone ranger, it has a twin called pornography. Many young children today are getting Into pornography bcoz of masturbation. Sometimes it’s easy 2 say somethings are ok because we are the ones doing them. How wld you feel if u met ur spouse constantly masturbating. Or your 13 year old child masturbating, wld you clap 4 them? Masturbation doesn’t cm without effects, it’s not a mechanical act because we are not dogs, we are humans.. so it has effects whether or not we deny it. Let your innerman be the judge. Also to the dude that said you watch hardcore porn with your wife, pornography is a terrible trap, insyd or outsyd marriage. Be very careful or you could destroy your home. God created Sex, let him be your inspiration. It’s a mental problem that makes people wnt to see others naked, and having raw sex, to be satisfied. Pornography is DANGEROUS. My take on masturbation is simple, it’s not a lone ranger, it’s more often than not linked to porn, lustful thoughts nd other stuff. I judge no1. But one day we shall answer for every act. Let your conscience guide you

    Anyway from so many comments masturbation regarded as a sin or as a self molestation, either it’s a sin or molestation the best option is to get married as soon as one is matured to do so.
    The God’s purpose for creating the urge in animals and human beings alike is to have it satisfied with our rightly married partner. (especially we political animals)
    It’s obvious God knows more than we do, the way he created us (in both Bible and Qur’an no where or passage the issue of masturbation is ever discussed either extensively or briefly.
    The scripture states that “let everyone get its soulmate as at when due…” And for Qur’an it states that get married once you’re capable and or engage yourself in fasting (voluntarily) once you realised you are not capable/ there is not yet provision such as place to put your wife (house) or no job to cater for the wife. Hold your urges, that fasting will reduce the urge in you till God provide for you from It’s bounties.
    ” And we know fasting itself is a prayer to God to answer such fulfillment”
    And you should enter into your wife/wives any way you like/any style but except you should never enter into your woman /women from the Anus (take note) and don’t enter into your woman during their menstrual periods or after childbirth until they’re clean and feel comfortable to do so. “bcos it’s for your own safety”.
    Now, people that are divorced or loose their partner should re-married in accordance with law as soon as possible to avoid illicit practice in a society.
    As for masturbation as concerned, it is not 100% solution but aforementioned above advices’ from both scripture.
    For men who doesn’t have sex after been experienced “prostate cancer ♋” is knocking the door and as for women real insomnia without that non of doctor’s prescription can heal is underway. Gbam!
    Have sex when urges come but with your rightly possessed woman AVOID RAPING it’s a crime both in sight of God almighty and governments.
    But if you’re in dilemma masturbation is saver compare to public molestation or Jail! And don’t get addicted.
    More wife or stay together no matter condition or 2 weeks interval maximum.
    It strengths love and no loopholes for intruders/snatchers.
    Mo so yi mo duro na….!

    i am in my early twenties. graduated with a high 2:1 in chemical engineering. There are goals i have set for myself. One of which is no marriage until I have a job. I live with a woman who is living my dreams. She recently bought her first car at age 29 and works for a multinational. I am presently 22yrs old but some of the job aptitude tests i have written are not coming out positive. Just fresh out of nysc I am already furstrated and worried. My parents are happy for her and all i feel is this sense of failure. Being the first born I want to be able to take care of my parents and get of their backs as quickly as possible. Any words of encouragement?

Although, my parent try to put my mind to rest I just cant shake the feeling. I am tired, feel like a failure everyday, cant sleep properly and having anxiety issues makes it even worse. I’ve given up on trying to make anything work, but for you I hope you find happiness and all your dreams come true because you deserve it.

      At first I thought why are these two commenting off the topic, but the on a second thougt I decided to give my two cents to see how it could help.

      You two should just remain positive. you are still young jeez! Well how can I blame you in a world that has become so fast paced. I graduated at the age of 24. Even as I worried as I was back then, fast forward a few years after, and I have made impressive progress, live away from my parents, pay my bills, have a steady job and my own car to take me around. Its not about how fast you get there, true some get there really fast, but determination and perseverance together with a good disposition is key.

      Except you keep thinking positive, remain determined and happy with yourself regardless, this stepping forward will become difficult as the road will seem too far away.

      Do something to keep you busy, try new things while you are awaiting a steady job, and don’t always sit and wait for the “big bang” jobs. Just because so and so person got a job with a multinational does not mean you have to turn all others, waiting for the multinationals yourself. Start from somewhere..anywhere..just don’t stay irrelevant!

      22 is damn too young to be giving up already!

I just cant deal with some people sometimes. If you do not agree, say why, and please be intelligible. Nothing you have said here strikes me as particularly intelligent.
      As for the writer seeking for mercy, (another ell oh hell) who created her body? who created the man and the woman. He created it and thought it was good. If you decide to touch yourself whilst thinking of your husband, the man you are wedded to in holy matrimony, please how is that a sin? Do you know anything about the author that you are here implicitly condemning her out of God’s mery? By God’s grace you will also see sense and re-write this drivel you have written here. Usually I do not have time for silly people like you. But I have your time today. I am on leave.
      Personally, I find lots of the comments on this topic odious, but I enjoy reading them nonetheless because it opens my mind. I do not approve of it, but I read it with an open mind, therefore in a conversation, I can contribute to both sides of the conversation whilst still holding firmly onto my beliefs or in this case my wand. (oooh have I shocked you? are you about to swoon?) Before you start bible thumping and choking us with the fumes from your “turari” open whatever is left of your mind just a bit. I am not asking you accept it, or masturbate or think it is right. I am asking you to be able to converse with people, hear what they have to say, say what you have to say, without condemning anyone. .

    She wouldnt survive without sex for a month talk less of 6months(before my next visit).
    And so i fired our driver, gardner, houseboy and replaced them with a house girl and a rabbit!
    We have managed so far, its almost 2years, she even named the rabbit, and as they say the rest is history.
    I’ll rather have a masturbating partner than a cheating one, i say a silent prayer for her and myself everything. My intentions were very honest.

    Dear Ari,

    1. I am tempted to say that you are a devil incarnate. Why? Not just because of the write up, but firstly because of your profile (About me)
    “I’m a know-it-all; ask me anything and I’ll have an answer for you.” This was the same spirit in Lucifer that made God send him to hades/hell. With this spirit in you, i decipher you are an incarnate

    2. You do not need to come tell us if it is a sin or not. You can keep your conviction to yourself. The same way DEVIL/SERPENT, went to EVE to persuade them that eating the apple wasn’t a sin, that is the same way you have come to persuade BN girls (that you know are single, without a bf and may need some ease) to masturbate. You see the reason i said in number 1 that you might be an incarnate? See the similarities between you and the serpent!

    3. Whether is it 2015, or modernity or new age, God’s standards do not change. He is no respecter of persons, be it a pastor, church member, or a street person. Modernity or new age does not compromise His standards for us all

    4. Two wrongs can never make a right. You cant say because you
    a. Want to avoid having sex with a man
    b. want to avoid sexual lust/temptation with a married man
    c. want to avoid stds
    d. want to be faithful to your partner
    e. it will reduce rape
    f. it will reduce unfaithfulness
    e. all other reasons/excuses you might have

    then you go masturbate or please yourself.
    Can you eat poison because you want to avoid not having a husband, not getting a job, not having a child on time…..and kill yourself? Is that a good justification to avoid the other evil. You think rapists don’t masturbate?

    4. We all have our inner man who bears us witness when something is wrong or not. Some people’s conscience are already seared with iron (according to Paul) and cannot see anything bad in whatsoever they are doing. If you belong to that group, please keep it up, but to try and convince others that is is no sin? which authority do you have to say what is wright and what is wrong?

    5.Your body is not your body! Did you say your own body? No it is not yours? God owns it. He created it, formed it, gave you breadth and will take it when the time comes. If it was yours, why couldnt you create your body to suit what you want? change your height, complexion, looks, a little more boobs, bum, pointed nose,…) It is not yours.

    Why cant you resit death when it comes? It is not yours. He takes it when it is time. You are to leave to please Him not yourself. You work to please your employer not yourself. Your employer dictates your resumption and closing time, your pay….cos your employer owns the job.

    6. What is the motive behind it? What takes place in your mind before doing? What thoughts, desires, lusts…In the act, what goes on in your mind?

    7. I see many say they are Christians and yet they see nothing wrong about it. Christianity is not by name or title my BN friends. The word Christian came out from Antioch cos they saw the way and manner the disciples spoke, acted, behaved and comported themselves. These people are Christ-like (Christians) You could be your so called Christian and not Christ-like

    Christian means Christ-like. If you are not Christ like, you are just bearing a title. Being a christian does not take one to heaven, it is being Christ-like that takes one there-Following the dictates and ordinances of the Supreme Being.

    8. Everyone should keep their personal convictions. Keep yours i will keep mine. Do not be fooled around and easily swayed by false doctrines. In conclusion, Paul said O foolish Galatians, who hath bewitched you, that ye should not obey the truth, before whose eyes Jesus Christ hath been evidently set forth, crucified among you? Gal.3:1.

    Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do.Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils; Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron; Forbidding to marry. (1timothy 1) Take heed unto thyself, and unto the doctrine; continue in them: for in doing this thou shalt both save thyself, and them that hear thee.

      There is no single insult in my comment up there.
      It is either that you didn’t comprehend my comment or do not know what an insult means.

      The only word i think you may call an insult here is “devil incarnate”, which is by no form an insult. It is a statement of fact for someone that is used by the devil

      For avoidance of doubt, incarnate means Represent in bodily form or Invested with a bodily form especially of a human body, which is in no way an insult.

    I find this topic a bit boring.
    I never wanked and never will but respect those who do.
    I find the process of wanking (or having a good finger for females) to be too mechanical.
    I have always lived by the principle that I should be touched and not touch myself. The fantasizing needed for wanking is an issue for me. I rather stick to what I can have than daydream about curves that are not within touching distance.

    The passage referred to by many pentecostals was not referring to masturbation and the bible doesn’t clearly mention the act. However, coming from a ex-masturbator, the act is rarely done in isolation, you are either wanking off to an image of someone you fantasize about or its triggered by an external stimuli – in which case it is a sin. My case was real bad as I couldn’t sleep without jerking-off and the aftermath of the action was despondency and bitterness. I was only able to overcome this during a period of prayer on campus when i stumbled on Galatians 5:16, which triggered my habit of praying every night before I sleep and ensuring that the stereo had a xtian tape playing while on the bed. I had gone months before I realised that all such desires to jerk-off every night had disappeared.

    I’ve gone back to the habit a few times (after marriage) when my wife just leaves me on a high or fails to accede to my sexual demands. I however try not to dwell on this that much – these are one-offs and GOD is faithful and just to forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness 1 John 1:9. Of course, couples need to discuss there sexual failings to prevent one party from wanting off on the other.

    One needs to separate the physical act of masturbation from the subconscious ones – having a wet dream is not a sin as its done unconciously. Masturbation is not an act that should be encouraged, it’s better to go marry than to burn with passion. It’s as good a sin as fornication – the only difference is the presence of another physical party.

    August 19, 2015 at 10:55 am

    I read something interesting about this topic the other day. It was said that the ACT of masturbating itself is not the sin, but its the process. For example, if I wanted to go down on Precious, on Olubunmi, on the love box or whatever synonyms for the vajayjay, I have a collection of smuts, or my ever trusty imagination. Those are the sins. The smuts and say the imagination its that nice young man at work- I have committed the sin of fornication(?) by having lustful thoughts about the dude, Channing Tatum and Idris Elba or whoever may be in my head at that time. The act of masturbating without these things is NOT a sin. However, how can you masturbate without continuous stimulation? Na Kongi carry you there, but Kongi must keep you there until you achieve fulfilment.
    Personally, I do not think masturbating is a sin, but that is the only religious argument against it that has come close to making sense to me. It doesnt’ denounce my sexuality in any way or the fact that I chose to take pleasure in my body. As it stands, that is the only religious argument against masturbation that I can accept. Everythingelse is not wellthought out enough for me.
    Does this deter me from maturbating? No. Do I endorse masturbating? HELLS yeah. As anonymous has written. You need to know yourself before some uncle or daddy can say he wants to be “taking you to paradise”. Also, it is a HUGE stress reliever. The amount of times I have gotten to work with a HUGE smile on my face, and the productivity that ensued.. pfft. Let me just stop here.

    The height of sexual perversion in our generation continues to be mystery. We continue to not call a spade a spade, especially when we indulge in those abominable things. How can I be free from a bad habit when I continue to claim it is right. Some of us make illogical argument just because we attest to the truth that masturbation is not right in the sight of God and man does not also mean we condone other forms of immorality and behaviour such as that highlighted about a boss at work “humping” at one. The bible says guard your heart with all diligence, some of you that practice masturbation, may God deliver you, however do not come here demonstrating the giant strides you continue to achieve in such detestable and abominable behaviour, hoping that this will appeal to some of that our minds are still sane. A man with 4 kids practicing such, oh what seed you are planting for your children to come and harvest.

    If you are a christian, MASTUBATION IS A SIN,because you have to fantasies to get off.

    Sometimes I mastubate to porn-lesbian,striaght,shemale,indie,femist
    or porn I made with me n my husband or written erotica.

    Sometimes I mastubate for my hubby,sometimes in front of the mirrow or the camera. I like to think of super hot sexual moment with hubby or ex-partners-sex in the bathroom,a particular hot sex I had with an ex partner on xmas eve more 7years ago,lol,really rough sex and fisting etc.

    It may sound weird but I love to mastubate to sexual/sexy music aswell.

    I think mastubation is a sin because of all the lustful things you fantasies about during it,BUT its not CHEATING.

    masturbation is a sin. but masturbation can be medicinal. i use masturbation to put myself to sleep due to insomnia. i can wank for 40 minutes, without porn or sexual thoughts, and come intensely, and because of the time and energy spent i fall asleep very quickly and have a good sleep. on the other hand, when i’m horny, i look at some short videos, sank for a few minutes and i feel good, but even till now i still feel a bit guilt when i masturbate but never feel guilty when i have sex.

    • Koffie

      August 19, 2015 at 4:36 pm

      The worrying part is that you feel guilty pleasuring yourself but don’t feel the same guilt having sex. You’ve conditioned yourself with society’s help to think the way you do. I think you should hold your sexuality to the same standard on all fronts.
      I read from marriagbed dot com to see the Christian view on masturbation as it’s widely avoided in my church (or maybe I’ve been absent on the days it was talked about) and the view there is that masturbation in itself isn’t the sin but the accompanying thoughts before and during. Comments here prove that because people have premarital sex without feeling guilty as they don’t need aided thoughts of erotica while they have sex. But the guilt comes from the ‘lustful’ thoughts that aid your arrival when you masturbate. By the way, those folks at marriagebed still think you could if you can do it without the thoughts.

    Masturbation is a normal and healthy part of being a sexually active man or woman….a large percentage of girls/guys have masturbated at one point of their lives or the other, so this argument of whether or not masturbation is right is not an issue. If it keeps you away from cheating on your partner please please and please go ahead.
    The Climax from Masturbation is usually deep, extreme and intense, i can say that from my experience, these orgasms are far deeper than while a guy is thrusting into me. With this Act, i can control my pleasure, i know when to throb deeper,harder or softer as the case may be. Often times, Guys believe that the harder they thrust into a lady, the more her chances of reaching the big “O”. This is a very very wrong assumption, as only about 15% of women come from Vaginal stimulation, the other 85% come from Clitoral stimulation. Did you know that some women prefer to even be “fingered” by their partner rather than to be penetrated? In the same vein, a woman can “cum” from a mere make-out session with her partner touching and fondling with her sensitive parts.
    This brings me to then say “Why wont i masturbate? if i ll get a mind-blowing explosive Orgasm?
    These are various ways by which a Lady can masturbate
    1) Fingers; The key is concentration, you need to focus on the Act. Close your eyes and imagine someone special. Touch the tip of your clit softly and vary the pressure for maximum effect . You can also try to clamp your thighs together, this would make you cum faster.
    2) Sex Toy
    3) Water/ Bath Tub: If you have a tap, hung up on the wall, about the same height as your thighs, simply sit under the tap with your legs wide spread,let the water gush on the tip of your clit while you move your body from left to right to locate your G-spot. Try to regulate the tap such that the water pressure is not too much,
    4) Pillow; You lie on top of a pillow and dry hump on it till you cum
    5) Vibrating Toothbrush

    I struggled with this althrough my teenage life. I was introduced to watching porn at an early age but I knew it was/is wrong.

    God created Eve for Adam, he didn’t tell him to “help himself” and more so, no one can masturbate without imagining someone else. No one can tell their congregation that they masturbate. Anything that requires secrecy is most likely a breeding ground for sin.

    Christians, please don’t try to be politically correct on this matter, as complex as it is.

    Let each one who fears God truly let the Holy Spirit teach him or her what is permissible within the confines of marriage and what is not.

    If you are born-again, the Holy Spirit WILL direct you and also purge you of unholy desires.

    For the Non-Christians, you can say masturbation is not a sin as your master is not Jesus Christ.. But for the Christians, let me refer you to Philippians 4:8 ” … whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report…think on these things”

    When you masturbate you fix your mind on dirty things, wild imaginations and all sorts just to aid in getting to climax. this practice is not in line with the above scripture.

    There are also a host of other relevant scriptures that talks about sexual purity.

    The truth is that as a christian, masturbation amounts to a sin and there is no justification to aid this practice. If singleness is your excuse for masturbation, you should continue to pray to God to send you the right spouse. If you are married and still masturbate, you need deliverance, cos you have a spouse to satisfy your sexual needs. Self control is one of the fruits of the spirit.

    Nigerians know how to muddle up issues in a lazy attempt to make a point.

    Masturbation =/= porn addiction
    Porn addiction can cause you to masturbate frequently or have sex frequently.
    Porn addiction is no different from any other addiction. It’s a disorder of the brain. You are getting rewarded for a specific activity despite the consequences.

    And often times porn addiction has to do with your religious identity and perception of the act you are engaging in

    I will go with science and say it’s healthy for the human body. However im not so sure it’s healthy for the Nigerian mind due to the context in which sex is taught to most Nigerians. Most of you learn that sex is dirty unless within the context of marriage.

    Yet your natural physiological instinct especially as you grow into puberty is to have sex or masturbate.

A carnal man cannot understand the things of the spirit. I did not read the post and I don’t want to know the details. All I know is Once I was blind, Now I see. Once I was bound and addicted and now I am set free. No one will take my testimony because of what they believe. If you do not know where you are going, any road will take you there. In as much as I like this blog, I have learnt to guard my heart. There are some things I don’t read and advice I don’t pay attention to. I just Love God. No other thing matters to me. Finally, brethren, whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, whatsoever things are of good report; if there be any virtue, and if there be any praise, think on these things.

    I can masturbate for Africa. The only time I stopped masturbating instead of getting into a serious relationship, I made mistakes with unserious guys trying to fill a void in my life at that time. This period in my life I deeply regret. Now I do not waste time pulling out my vibrator and helping myself. I have a great sexual appetite and it has put me in trouble. I am not a sex addict but I love sex. I am not ashamed of that. Life is short. I have done almost everything when it comes to sex and masturbation. I will tell you that masturbation is very important if you are sexually active. I always introduce any man I am dating to my vibrator and they do not judge me. In fact they join me in using it and we have mind blowing sex. My current boyfriend stand like olumo rock when we use it. In fact I will be limping when I get off him. I can’t even have the sex well. That being said, Virgins please don’t corrupt yourself with my post. It is honorable to wait to have sex. If I waited, I would have been this sexually active anyway.

    Honor God with your body.
    If while masturbating you can still honor God and still be chummy with the holyspirit of God inside of you,then by all means carry on.

    But there’s no argument or science greater than the truth.which is in each and everyone..

    Religion is so contradictory to ridiculous levels. For those feeling guilty about touching themselves, your guilt only came from what you were told. How sinful and dirty it is. I feel for you really. You are only on a journey of sexual repression. Well for the religious people, it’s a sin yo! Lol.. Don’t justify it cos you do it. As for others that are free minded, enjoy every moment of discovering your sexual self.

    So because of masturbation bellanaija has 177 comments abi is my system bad?looooool! okokobioko!. One thing that intrigues me is when people want to support their stand for masturbation they add “I am a Christian ” phrase. It intrigues me cos it seems like they re trying to say Christianity is for it, but then they don’t have a bible passages to support masturbation? Why this phrase? Cant you just lay out what masturbation does for you and leave it at that? Or is there an inner voice you re trying to silence by screaming you re a Christian first. Eg if someone wants to tell a story of who they visited orphanage i rarely see the phrase I am Christian, but when its something controversial people start emphasizing on their religion without providing the backing of the tenets of the religion. OK for all the Self acclaimed Christians who are proponents of masturbation, since you have mentioned your religion , give us a scriptural backing after all your opponents have given us several.

    I like you Ellesisen” I like the logical way you present your issues. My stand is, we all know ourselves, we all know what our conscience will or will not accept. Find yourself and be true to yourself,if the way you are towing is hurting you, do not be ashamed to denounce it and find a new path, dragging others along will not ease your own pain. If you feel the way you tow is the light do not be ashamed to expose people to the light. As for me if I were to advice my loved one, I would say flee from all sexual immorality/ perversion. Keep your mind clean from porn and other mind polluting issues. Focus more on helping others and other beneficial things,Be self disciplined, it will help a lot. Simple..I am against masturbation, key reason is Self discipline. My opinion.

    Many of you ask if my pastor told me about the sexual positions……….no……….but i have been on and of with God in the past years………..pls this is not about me reading the bible or pastor preaching…..or the religious attitude of many nigerians……..this is about learning God and having intimacy with me………… is true that all sin is sin….but there is something about the body and sin……i have always read the bible that our body is the temple of the holy spirit…..infact it is a chorus everyday i go to church………but not until i began having intimacy with God………fasting and praying for months and what not………..

    pls whether you are married or not………God had revealed to me that masturbation was a sin even before my pastor did…………i guess God wanted to expose me so that i would not say that i was not warned…………there are demons behind oral sex…..masturbation and other sexual positions….they are marine spirits…….they are also responsible for nudity…….even if you are married,,,,pls flee from this sin called masturbation…God can help you….

    i was happy when i came to america and discovered that it is a free sex society and open sex society where i do not have to spend a dime to lay a girl…….i also discovered that oral sex was a culture for them………….but it was also at that point that God began to teach me all this things…….i used to think that we have much freedom with our body after marriage because i believe that i love oral sex and would love to be enjoying it.

    i used to criticise nigerians for being religious and hypocrites…..but i can tell you that many nigerians know God……………….the presence of God has departed from the western countries…….they may have wealth and civilization…….but dont forget that egypt was rich in the bible……….
    Be prapared when you leave this earth to tell God that you enjoy doggy stlye…..that you give your wife orgasm through oral sex……

    @girlbeingreal. It’s ok if u think masturbation isn’t a sin. It’s a free world. However attacking everyone that doesn’t share your view is abit juvenile, don’t u think? No1z claiming to b perfect, for all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. But it doesn’t stop Us from standing by our beliefs. So Don’t go attacking and mocking others. It’s immature

    Nigeria has a very high rate of STDS. Now if people learnt to self pleasure wouldn’t the rate of infection drop. Also could it not be an effective birth control, cutting out the need for abortion altogether. is not written any were in the bible that masturbation is a sin. I think people should use the common sense that they were born with to judge this issue. I think there are greater Sins people should be worrying about like the wild fire spread of STDS ,population explosion and unecesssty killing of unborn caused by callous sexual acts. As far as I am concerned masturbation is a lesser evil compared to all the others . It is a Sin not to use your common sense to save yourself. It is not everything we should be running to religious text to find answer Haba and in the process create notting but confusion. The answer to somethings in life are as clear as a sunny day. Pple need to stop creating unecesssry drama and get their facts right. After all When hungry we know to put food into our mouth and not our anus.

    Can anyone sincerely and truthfully say the thoughts they have while masturbating are innocent? Are you not imagining some other woman or man? Meanwhile you are married for those married ones who say they do it so as not to cheat on their wives how gullible can you guys be? Please don’t deceive yourselves, 2015 or the 20th century or whatever you all want to call it the truth still remains the bible is the same and will always be the same. So if you enjoy doing it that’s between you and God but don’t come and make the people who feel it’s a sin to question their faith about what their hearts or conscience tells them is wrong. After all if people can wake up one day and justify same sex relationship then it’s masturbation they won’t justify? Let those who know the truth continue to stand by it and be guided by the principles of the holy scripture and their conscience. No need trying to reason with people who have created their own doctrines to guide their ways of living and doing what pleases them.God is just and faithful to forgive them when they confess . So no need for Judging them let God be the judge of them all including those who are having sex before marriages. God loves you all but hates sin not you let’s not make people feel God hates them. All I can type is the devil is a liar and the God who sits on the throne will reveal the truth to His children. @girlbeingreal I am praying for you and haven’t you noticed people who really believe it’s wrong and have stated why you can see with the amounts of like they get meaning a lot of people also believe it’s a sin. I have read how you attack people who try to give reasons why it’s wrong and I know your comments are because you strongly are sooo unhappy and know in your mind it’s wrong but only make this childish comments to justify all the times you have done it but my darling God still loves you and will deliver you my sister from the lies and stronghold of the devil. God loves you veryyyy much do not believe whatever anyone tells you He loves you as His daughter but hates your sin not the person but the act of sin! To all those who believe it’s wrong continue to stand on your beliefs God bless you all. And to those who have concocted reasons in their minds to back up your actions of doing it God also bless you all and loves you all dearly and will definitely give you all wisdom on how to understand IT!!

      Dear truth. Yes it is possible to masturbate without having dirty thsughts. Children do it innocently. You might think you have a grasp of the bible my dear but u don’t. Please do your research. God has given you a brain so use it. Ignorant humility paves the way to hell on earth and after earth.

    My take as everyone else seems to have one is that masturbation is a natural stress relief. The addiction comes were you are TOLD not to do it. Then it becomes a guilty pleasure. Everyone knows that forbiden fruit is always sweetest. To my religious pentups Choi it must be hard resisting such a perfectly natural bodily function. I can understand why it is the addiction you fear. People are addicted to PORN get sexually aroused then find an outlet, either through consensual sex, forced one or masturbation. In my experience were masturbation is not dirty PORN is not needed for this perfectly normal body function. I am a christian, mother of 4 happily married. And before you self proclaimed REAL CHRISTIANS judge me ill just like to add that only God can see into the heart and mind and judge who is christ like or not.

    I love sex a lot and sometimes the body gets naturally tired of making love to the same person. Masturbation has kept me faithful to my wife. It is bad, I know, but better than sleeping with another woman and I mean that both in the spiritual and physical sense.

Those who do it I won’t judge them I speak for myself and myself alone masturbation is a sin. It’s not about being ignorant that’s my own belief everyone has their different beliefs on the bible.

If you indulge in the act good for you my dear everyone has different sexual preferences, you aren’t better than those who have chosen not to indulge in the act! As you have stated why you think it’s necessary also allow those who feel it isn’t necessary to also air their own reasons why. No need for all the long sermon on why christians will end up in hell!Take care

Aanit nobody got time to hear how you get your freak on (cringeworthy). Please stop providing cheap porn for people to get off on. As for the matter at hand , it is a personnal, private choice. No one knows what goes through people’s minds when they are in the mood, dirty taughts,clean ones, allaluia and praise thoughts for those who want to take it to the church. Nobody cares as long as you arrive. Everyone is a freak in the sack so less judging.
