Okies christians

Can masturbation cause birth defects? I mean if your hubby wanks it alot, does it affect how your children are born? Please if you can give medical references!

  • first, that okies thing threw me...i thought you were calling out for Oklahoman Christians (they call themselves okies)

    whoever told you that masturbation causes mental illness is using old mis-information. back in the day they truly believed that, but there is no proof that its true. i have a B.S. degree in psychology, so trust me...there are NO ties between mental illness & masturbation. masturbation does not hurt sperm, nor can it hurt the testes (which make sperm).

    there are things that can slow down your DH's sperm (radiation, some drugs), but masturbation is not one of them. the majority of birth defects take place after conception & have to do w/ genetics or environmental issues (mom's alcohol use, mom gets serious disease).

    now too much masturbation can cause your DH to not last as long sexually. however, if you have a lot of sex he will prolly last longer. neither contributes to the "healthiness" of sperm.

  • Lol...masturbation is a totally normal thing. Men's bodies keep making sperm, and masturbation gives the same kind of release as sex. So that's like asking if too much sex can cause birth defects.

  • Maybe someone will post medical references about stupidity. Honestly. How could masturbation possibly cause birth defects?

  • How and what masturbation have anything to with the Religion & Beliefs section. Your question should be post it up in the Relationship section. "Okies Christians"...what's up with that. I don't get it. Don't offend us like that, that is not nice seriously. NO JOKES.

  • LMAO!  Um no masturbation does not cause birth defects.  It does not cause blindness or hair to grow on your palms either.

  • This is a strange place to post this question as it seems to have nothing to do with religion maybe 'Health' would have been a more appropriate place.. In any event, no masterbation will not cause birth defects. Its normal and healthy and if everyone did it a lot more the world would be a happier place.. but thats just my opinoin. :)

  • "This is a strange place to post this question "

    my thoughts exactly...or are xtians the only ones who masterbate? lol or perhaps the OP was wondering what xtian-doctors had to say on the subject, health-wise. lol

  • Why would masturbation have anything to do with birth defects??? Do you think that he can somehow masturbate his little sperm into defects?? Who told you this?

  • I *think* it might have been posted here because some Christians (possibly other religions as well?) view it as a sin. Just a guess.
