Sex is spiritual, and nothing wrong with masturbating or even being gay for that matter. Sex is the greatest pleasure of all and one of the strongest forms of expression for your ultimate love one. Experiencing pleasure is not a sin, other forms of body generate pleasure feeling, feeling the sun’s rays beating down on you, enjoying a meal, sensual massage. Sex is natural like eating and sleeping, yet too much of anything (except love) is not healthy. People are both spiritual and sexual beings.
Luke 14:26 "If any man come to me, and HATE not... this means is that you need to love God more than your own family. My ultimate love would be to settle down with just one woman to share my life with and to carry on healthy sex life. Good thing, I don't love my clergyman most. A million children are molested by clergymen in the USA each year.
