Is masturbation wrong or a sin?
I read in a family health book about child development into adulthood and they mentioned seminal emission occurs about every two weeks and that over 90% of adults masturbate. Is there a Bible-based instruction claiming masturbation is wrong or a sin?
No. People have skewed "That Shalt Not Lust" to refer to any sexual longings, but the actual meaning is quite different. No where in the Bible does it mention that self-pleasuring is wrong. This fear of sex is causing so many problems in the world. It's truly sad.
No it is not a sin but there should be a limit to enerything. This done at the right time in the right way are always good. In fact I have read that it is good for health but there should be limit.
No, but there is a passage in which: "Onan did spill his seed onto the ground", which is why it used to be called Onanism (which was actually not masturbation, but a birth control method). For more information on masturbation, which is a normal primate activity, for both the males, and females of multiple species, view section 13, at http://www.ezy-build.net.nz/~shaneris (2 articles). Incidentally, and somewhat off subject, the commandment refers specifically to "adultery", NOT "fornication"!
