Masturbation - Right or Wrong?

We've all been doing it since we were early teens... and yes, women do it. Most will say they don't, but we all do it.

Is it right or wrong?

I am married (2nd marriage) and having a problem with ED due to prostate cancer (also lost a kidney due to stage 3 cancer), find it easier to enjoy the comfort of self abuse.

Go for it when ever you are able. Life is to short to worry about this!

Masturbation is beneficial because it provides for the need to ejaculate semen. Masturbation is fun, pleasant, enjoyable, safe, healthy, normal, harmless, contributes to prostate health, relieves sexual tension, and pain from overfilled seminal vesicles. Masturbation aids sleep when done before bedtime. Frequent masturbation prevents wet dreams, and the painful condition known as “blue balls”. Masturbation leaves one with a feeling of relaxation, contentment, and well-being. One cannot get an STD from masturbation.

Masturbation is not mentioned in the Bible, so there is no reason to believe that it is sinful or immoral.

First thing to say is it is NOT self abuse.If you enjoy it in privacy or with a partner then why not.

Just do not over do it, this can lead to other problems.

Thats true. But some belong to a addictive personality and tend to overdo everything. Unfortunately I belong to that category. Then the guilt remorse and shame. Takes me elsewhere. Last few months have been going deep into introspection. I am also in a 12 step fellowship been sober for 12 years. This one comes up once in a while. Realization is a key for everyone. The blank spots we hit when we get into that act. Working on acceptance that though married, we may not get action ALL the time. My wife is a different being, I need to respect that. When I masturbate, I try to keep it pure physical (you know what I mean?) just get it out and move on. Not to get into porn or other adult material. Man that sucks me back in quickly into that vicious cycle.

BTW I always wonder if Spiritual masters Masturbate? LOL. Most talk about overcoming the desire. But I am thinking, if your hormones are still active, I wonder how one could overcome that.
