    Only on TSR could a thread contain deep philosophical meaning and yet focus on masturbation. :lolwut:
    I take that as a compliment of the highest kind.

    I'm a bit gutted there wasn't more debate and just stupid replies.
    Not surprised though.

    Yeah, me neither.

    Personally, though, since both people who are involved in the act are the same person from different points in time, I would argue that it is masturbation, even if, in a conventional sense, it doesn't involve any penetration (necessarily).

    That having been said, if I now saw myself come back from the future to have a sexual experience with me, I would question it enough to potentially cause some form of time loop - which would mean it might never happen.

    This happens in the time travellers wife and the man who folded himself. Both sort of treat it like its a different person but the same person, one is older and knows more, the other is younger and doesn't know the event already.

    I wouldn't think of it as masterbation. If identical twins (who are technically clones right? they have the same DNA) had sex it would be incest. It really depends how you think time travel works, in the man who folded himself each "him" is a different person who has different thoughts and experiences. In the time travellers wife he is the same person, just at a different time of his life, so in that case it would be masterbation.

    I'm too tired to think about this anymore tonight. Good night all.

    I haven't read either.
    However if it is a younger you, you have had direct experiences of that being. If it is a twin or clone you do not have such an experience.

    As I siad, this isn't about the paradoxs or science.
    However if it is masturbation without penetration why does that change with it?

    Fair dos, I'll focus on the sexual side of things.

    I guess whatever sexual act takes place between both selves, it is still masturbation, looking at the dictionary definition. However, it's weird to think that full-on sex could be defined as maturbation, just because masturbation is usually a hands-only job (even when aided by sex toys or whatever).

    There isn't necessarily any change of the physical act, it's all to do with the semantics of masturbation and the connotations that result from it. I'd reckon that is what would sway most people's opinion on the matter, when they thought about it.

    So is all masturbation on the homosexual side from your point of view?
    no but this is mutual masturbation, it would be less like having a **** and more like having an identical twin doing it.

    You would be looking at another dude whilst he gives you a hand job, regardless of who it is it isn't you in real terms because you're the one recieving it.

    I often look at porn when I masturbate.
    It would be only mutual if you had your hand on them at the same time.
    And even then I mean physically mutual, not necessarily mutual as in another person, that's still up for debate.

    That doesn't mean they should be swayed.

    If you could go back in time by say, 5 hours. Forget time space continuum. Forget real science saying you can't go back through time.
    Forget paradoxes...

    If you got a hand-job from yourself, would that count as masturbation?

    Now imagine if it was a pre-puberty you, and you got a hand-job, is that still masturbation?

    If you were to kill a past you would that be murder or suicide (obviously you couldn't be held accountable as you'd stop existing).
    wtf? why do you want people to imagine sexually abusing child versions of themselves?

    On the masturbating one, it would count as a hand job not masturbation, because there would be two consciousnesses involved, one feeling pleasure and one not (at that point in time).

    If you were aware that in killing your past self you would die, it would be both murder and suicide. You would be murdering another being, ie your past self but knowingly kill yourself in the process, hence you would commit suicide.

    So the question arises, if you had a shared consciousness with them, would that count as masturbation?
