    Why do people masturbate. What is the psychology and spirituality behind it..?

      It feels as good as two person sex and there's no risk of unwanted pregnancy or STDs. I don't think people really need a psychological or spiritual reason beyond that. wink

        I so agree. Self gratification is safer , you don't have to worry about getting pregnant or getting a STD. You might have a spiritual revelation when you reach that "O" but other than that  nothing else behind it.

      This also occurs in the animal kingdom and is more prevalent among males. One theory is that it is a way of keeping the sperm in the resevoir fresh, young and strong to survive the toxic environment of the vagina and insure successful fertilization of the eggs. Another theory is men are just, well, ... pigs!

      I don't know what you mean by the spirituality in it.
      Does everything have to have a spiritual component?

    I see nothing wrong with it. Look at it like this...

    If someone tells me that they masturbate, it tells me that they aren't sleeping with anything that walks. Everybody masturbates, REGARDLESS.  Don't lie. lol

      I have no idea what the spiritually part of it would be...I always heard my baptist cousin say every time you masturbate A KITTEN dies. so that is like a turn off. lol

        If a kitten dies every time someone masturbates then why the hell are there so many cats? I think the opposite is happening every time someone masturbates a kitten is born.
        lol

    When we become aware of our sexuality, we touch and fondle ourselves. This leads to masturbation. Once you do that you enjoy your body. Moreover it releases the pent up emotions and gives relaxation.
    As for spirituality part ASK A PRIEST.

      justanieposted 10 years agoin reply to this

      I see..Asking a priest?I don't think that's a good idea cos he might be guilty as well smile

        Confess before the priest, if guilty then enjoy.

    Masturbation is a defilement of the body. But, it also guarantee instant pleasure and relief while it safely guards against stds, unwanted pregnancies etc.

      You just outlined the advantages and disadvantages..hmmmm,thanks!

    2. getitrite profile image74
      getitriteposted 10 years agoin reply to this

      This is the definition of defile:

      : to make unclean or impure: as

      a : to corrupt the purity or perfection of : debase

      b : to violate the chastity of : deflower

      c : to make physically unclean especially with something unpleasant or contaminating 

      d : to violate the sanctity of : desecrate


      I don't feel that masturbation fits any of these definition, so it is absurd to have such primitive beliefs...wouldn't you think?

          getitriteposted 10 years agoin reply to this

          I'm no expert, but I know that the bible harbors a vile HATRED against anything sexual...except for the missionary position...and then that is only to be done for reproduction.  ABSOLUTELY no recreational sex!  What an absurd view.

    You all are so funny.Thanks guys for your opinion,It's funny cos I have a contrary belief on the whole issues.Well I guess I just let people enjoy themselves without being judgemental.Well the spirituality part is about defiling the body.I cant stop laughing.

      Thank you.  And you are free to enjoy, as well.



      If you are referring to the 2000 year old book of nonsense, then your understanding is distorted by the sexual hang-ups of psychotic old men, who are long dead.  MY GOD!!!

        I second your motion. This thread doesn't really improve HubPages' public image in any way... And has probably more than outlived its usefulness!
