Masturbation is a tough topic to tackle. You may also need to reflect on if or how masturbation will be a factor in a future marriage. Let's look at some verses that speak of sexual morality. God designed us as sexual beings. Of course, these myths now sound absurd.
By refusing his obligation, he sinned.
Is masturbation wrong?
I believe that the issue of masturbation comes down to this. But, does it mean then that a self-release of sexual tension is then acceptable if it is to avoid fornication? You may be a single person who uses masturbation as a way to experience sexual release, or a married person who feels guilty for hiding your habit from your spouse. Is it alright for the husband to masturbate if he thinks only of his wife in order to relieve sexual tension? But if you can agree to be open and honest with one another, and if you can set healthy and biblical boundaries that you can both agree on, masturbation may be acceptable in your marriage. Jesus said, "You have heard that it was said, 'You shall not commit adultery'; 28 but I say to you, that everyone who looks on a woman to lust for her has committed adultery with her already in his heart," Matt. By refusing his obligation, he sinned.
