    Something thats common in both religions is the prohibition of masturbation. How do you avoid it in this day and age?

    Not that I'm trying to stop (I've lasted a week before I needed to stroke the bishop) just very curious as to how someone can have that much self control.

    Wouldn't say I'm particularly practising anymore but I never saw a problem with it when I was.

    So what if you want to get jerkin' your gherkin, it's a healthy sexual practice as long as it isn't an excessive addiction (which even then there are worse things to be addicted to).

    Not to sound like an a-hole but I wouldn't consider you to be practising if you were beating your meat.

    Not to sound like an a-hole but if the pope can change the church's outlook on members who are homosexual/use contraception, forgive me for not listening to someone who only has 4 posts on TSR, after giving my own opinion.

    Will I be excommunicated for spanking it? No
    Will I be stopped from going to mass? No
    Is it an outdated idea that was introduced from suppressing 'ungodly' urges? Yes
