RW...

If at any point you were looking for a serious answer to this question...this was the response that I received this morning from the pastor of the church that I attend.

"Nothing like giving me a big one to tackle. Anyway, here goes. Masturbation, like many different acts, in and of itself is neutral. It is all in what accompanies the act that potentially opens one up to sin. If it is accompanied by lust, then one has committed the sin of lusting after another (Matthew 5:27-30). If it is used to limit or replace intimacy in marriage then it is potentially destructive to the marriage relationship and in that sense would be considered sin (I Cor. 7:1-7). Some might point to the passage in Genesis 38 where Onan, the brother of Er and son of Judah refused to impregnate Tamar by spilling his semen on the ground and was thus punished by God as a prohibition against masturbation. In actuality, Onan was being punished for failing to fulfill his responsibility under the Law to provide an heir for the widowed wife of his brother. A strange custom that we don't practice, but nonetheless it was the custom of that day. Hope this helps you in thinking through the issue."

Thank you sweetheart. So I guess it depends on why you do it and what you think about when you do.

RW,

I think it would seem that the act itself isn't what the sin is...it's the thoughts behind it.

And that's what I pretty much found out as I searched...that it wasn't the act, but more what thoughts (lust, etc) that were driving it...and it was the thoughts that were a sin...not really the action.

Lust is not sinful.

I hardly think God would build sin into every animal and most Earth.

If lust were eliminated, the human race would go extinct pretty quickly.

Who's kiddin' who here?

If he were to exist at all that is, can you imagine some god, sittin' up there looking down through his omniscient telescope at wankers deciding whether to have either blank or lustful minds while flogging their 'logs' and/or their 'man in the boats', therein noting down on his infallible ledger in the sky who is committing a 'sin' and who is not?

The whole idea of 'sin' is an absurdity perpetrated and fostered by those who would control the minds and behavior of others to further their own ends. The so-called Holy Inquisition, until very recently headed by the present pope, has this manipulative mind control game down to a fine art.

If you want to have a good 'pud pull' then do it and the rest of us can bloody well mind our own business and that includes some absurd notion of some god in the sky.

What's it got to do with anyone else anyway???

On the 29-May-07 you asked a very deep and meaningful question when you wrote:

"But is it a sin if you do it in church?"

Only if it is a guy who is 'beating his meat' in church. After all, it might be a tinsy bit distracting for the god-botherers, not to mention the risk to the parishoner kneeling in front of him being all overcume in the process.

You ladies just might have a definite advantage in church in this regard. The groaning could even be passed off as divine rapture.

hah - bev, you're missing a great calling as a theological philosopher!
having sat in many a church service,
kroika is chuckling mightily at those naughty images, Tez

I am sure that if he hasn't already, Dan Savage will run a column on people's church-wanking experiences. And here's a question for you, bev -- does the bibledonk indulge in church-wanking??

Wow Kroika

This is hard to imagine- a real donk ain't got no hands- just hooves.

I wonder if it will be considered sinful to get the hiccups?

If it is sinful I'm guessing George Michael will be the entertainment in Hell.

Actually, even saying the word "masturbation is a mortal sin," which automatically results in going to Hell.

Oh darn, now I said it.

Let me see. We have beating, pulling, basting, choking, going to hell. This doesn't sound like pleasure, it sounds like a lot of violence. LOL

The question should be "Is sin playful" Sin meaning missing the mark and masterbation meaning no chance for conception I would think it depends on your religion. Reading the papers I might conclude many priests, higher profeets and yesterday Saints are equally confused about conception. Possibly masterbation could be considered preabortion and we all know that is worthy of a parade complete with fireworks. What I do know is the screwwing I got wasn't worth the screwing I got so paxil has my vote.
