    Anything is wrong or a sin if it gets in the way of being a good person to yourself and others.

    This includes self pleasure.

    If you are a single person then masturbation would be better than a one night stand.

    If you are married and never touch your spouse due to masturbation then it would be wrong and hurtful to spouse.

    Just about everything is neutral in power. Only people make it positive or negative by how they do, use or consume the thing.

    That is why knowledge is so inportant.

    Someone already pointed out that natural doesn't necessarily mean it is good. Keep in mind that when a man or woman orgasm, a surge of chemicals rush throughout a persons system, so it is reasonable to assume that negative mental and physical affects can occur if done excessively.

    I'd say it is bad if you do it to much, because it can turn into a drug addiction towards the chemical high you get.

    Theres a lot of misconception of the masturbation in the bible.

    Its said that Onan committed a sin when he supposidley masturbated when cheating on someone.

    The sin was actually him committing adulturey by thinking of another woman lustfully. When most people masturbate it isn't the masturbating itself thats a sin, but fantasizing.

    It doesn't.

    Really, you've got to research things for yourself, rather than relying on internet here say for your education.

    You might want to look at what the scholarly research says about masturbation however. There are some negative emotional and sexual consequences from the practice, particularly when it's tied in with pornography use.

    It is not bad or sinful.

    It is natural, normal and if you have no sexual partner - biologically unavoidable.

    The drive for sexual release is extremely strong. You may as well get used to it because the drive will be with you for the rest of your life, although it can lessen a bit with age.

    Many people incorrectly assume that things that are private are somehow bad. Religion does not require you to not be human. (There are still a few religions that condemn it.)

    Whether something is natural or not has nothing to do with whether it's right or not.

    Natural is simply what happens in a state of nature. Lots of good and bad things happen in a state of nature, therefore natural doesn't equate to good or bad.

  • Its only a sin if you interpret the bible.

    Don't take the bible too seriously it was written thousands of years ago, things have changed, it is acceptable in our culture, just do it privacy. God won't judge you for things like that :D

    Who cares if it's a sin. If it makes you happy do it.
