Soooo …. my last blog was a hot tamale! The proof is in the comments 🙂
With that being said, a new question emerged in the comments and I’m here to create a space to engage in discussion around it.
In one word…. M.A.S.T.U.R.B.A.T.I.O.N.
Straight from the mouths of my Vulnerabites:
1.) “To be honest, the church makes masturbation sound like a bad thing but doctors encourage it….so what is right?”
2.) “Masturbation however taps into self gratification and addiction etc which is harmful and therefore should be avoided.”
3.) “It looks like the bible only considers masturbation “due” to lustful thoughts a sin. However, the act of masturbating itself is not a sin? So masturbating without fantasizing is acceptable?”
4.) “I disagree with having a sermon about masturbation, because all honesty not many people enjoying doing it to themselves.”
5.) “Somewhere around 40-45% of women can’t orgasm (during sex). I thought I was one of them until I finally tried masturbating in my senior year of college.”
I’ve thoroughly shared my thoughts on this topic in a post entitled, “She Asked Me, Do You Masturbate?”
If you weren’t around for that, here’s a snippet:
“After that relationship ended, I spent a couple more months “weening” off of my active sex life with periodic masturbation….and then I gave my life to Christ. This is where the poop hit the fan! I didn’t know how to ask anyone whether or not my “weening off sex” method was ok. Nobody in church was talking about this. “
So Vulnerabites, is it ok for Christians to masturbate? Why or Why Not?
