    Masturbation. Inherently sinful? no?

    Discuss.

    (i vote...(warning, Clintonesque answer ahead) 'maybe')

    Boy that's a loaded question.
    Where do you want to start? Sinful?.....I see no evidence anywhere that's it's listed as a sin.

    Didn't someone mention something about wasted seed in another thread somewhere?

    Personally I don't care - whatever gets you through the night/day.

    Does anyone know anything about Hindu Philosophy?

    in the bible, that verse was used to show a guy's disobediance. He was supposed to 'lay' with a chick to knock her up...instead he 'pulled out'...something like that.

    As I understand it, masturbation in and of itself is not a sin. However, about 99.999999% of masturbation involves some kind of lust, pornography, fantasizing, etc., which is a sin. Therefore, if one is masturbating while doing one of these things, he would be sinning. And if someone is masturbating without doing one of those things, he is obviously a Zen master! :D

    Good question... never really though about that. Whenever I get the urge for the wife, I let her know about it... ;)

    Not MY wife...she's a 'good girl'... :)

    Jeff - do you think it's possible to lust after one's wife? Lust as in sinful-lust?
