In olden times, some people with unhealthy attitudes toward the human body used to refer to masturbation as "self-abuse." To those who know what sexual "abuse" is, that sounds ridiculous. We might feel lonely sometimes when we have to yank our own crank, but the experience (IMHO) is definitely not abusive. Peace!

Guys, guys, guys.......can we settle down and try to get along?

1) I did not ask anyone for their OPINION of MB.
2) However, anyone posting here is free to express their views, so long as its done in a respectful, non-judgemental manner.
3) Unfortunately, NLTsaved chose to express his view in a disrespectful, judgemental manner.
4) This does not mean that all religious people share that view, or share that attutude.
5) Dr. James Dobson, noted fundamentalist leader, known for his anti-gay activism, is on record as having said that "the bible is silent on this matter (MB)" and that he "doesn't think its much of an issue with God" (From Dobson's book: "Preparing for Adolescence").
6) I'm a 55 year old man with ten children, but no sex partner. If I need to relieve myself a couple of times a week to alleviate sexual tension, I will. If I need to deal with guilt and shame, I will. If I need to deal with sin, I will. Now lets move on gentlemen.

As long as we don't do it too often; as long as it's not compulsive.

I've set up site blockers on my computer so that I get one hour of porn access per day, and only between 10 PM and 1 AM. That way, it doesn't interfere with my day.

I don't believe it is a sin, I just wanted to point out that even those who do and are conservative about it like the catholic church, have a moderate stance:

"To form an equitable judgment about the subjects' moral responsibility and to guide pastoral action, one must take into account the affective immaturity, force of acquired habit, conditions of anxiety, or other psychological or social factors that lessen or even extenuate moral culpability".

From the Catechism of the Catholich Church.

I could have easily asked this same question and my feelings toward it are about the same as Garydosh. What he asked is what I have questioned for a looooong time. Thanks to those that gave positive thoughts and explanations. Just talking about any issue I think is a step forward to healing. Don't be silenced on any of it. We should be done with the secrecy.
As for me, I am married, yet I still have that habit of masturbation. I guess I contribute it to the effects of the abuse. Currently having some marital issues at the same time I am trying to go through this healing journey. Yea......it is hell. So maybe I am using masturbation as an outlet of some sorts. Keep the dialog going. We are here for each other to support and sort out these problems. I admire all of you men!!
