    When you weigh up all the pros & cons is it acceptable or wrong do you think. This is still a bit of a grey area for me :erm:

    EDIT: On the poll the question is supposed to be "Is masturbation ok" (Damn no edit option )

    Ask yourself: who is masturbating affecting?

    Are you hurting innocent children? No. Are you destroying people's lives? No. Are you, in any way, hurting somebody else? No.

    Are you having fun though? Yes, and that's all that matters

    It doesn't hurt anyone and is good for your health and wellbeing.
    You masturbate not because it's easy, but because it's hard

    I'd hardly go as far as to call it "moral", but acceptable, certainly. Equally, it seems to have some pretty good health benefits. I see very little to call it "immoral" or "unacceptable".

    It only feels immoral once you've climaxed. :sexface:

    It's perfectly moral, what kind of question is that? It doesn't harm or even really affect anyone else.

    Though a small part of wishes it was immoral, so I could feel naughty when I do it

    It depends how it challenges your moral compass. If you come to the point where you masturbate to people that whenever you see them and recall disturbing thoughts (immoral) you had, things get awkward and it makes you feel guilty, then maybe it's time to stop. Better things to do.

    Neither. But then again I don't do religion so it might differ from a Christian's perspective.

    Religion is the only thing which refuses to accept it. Any other institution would say do it it's fine, but as it always does, religion comes in with it's ignorant closed minded bs and confuses people. Masturbation isn't a subject of morality - it's a subject of biology and psychology. Morality is only required when you consider what kind of things are okay to masturbate over.

    Yeah realised my mistake on poll but since there's not edit button took a bit of time to fix & some people have already voted & were probably confused

    Even if you selected a specific religion it still would have been a HUGE generalisation, but no, you've decided to go for religion in general. And somehow this makes YOU the more rational and open-minded individual?

    Well yeah the main issue is what you're fapping over. I'm a straight guy so I'm going to have a sexual desire for girls who I find attractive, I can't help it. Is masturbation crossing the line I dunno. I don't think of girls as just pieces of meat though, if it's primary attraction then I don't know anything else about her apart from her looks?.
