Is it only wrong when you're single and ok when you're married?Why is masterbation seen as wrong.It's not adultery. Do you think it's wrong yourself? What if your Husband is in the Military and gone 1,2 or 2 1/2 yrs at a time? Is it ok then? Is there a scripture that says it is wrong?I just want to be clear that Im not doing anything that can be viewed by God as willingly sinful.

I've come to the conclusion that it is sinful to be human.  I spent years fearing I would go to hell because I masturbated.  As far as I know, it is not specifically mentioned in the Bible and is between you and God.

Less sinful than adultery. The passages in the bible that could touch on masturbation are open to interpretation and are not indefinite statements referring to masturbation.

I don't masturbate--but that's b/c DH is VERY GOOD with his hands!! He refuses to touch himself in a sexual way as he was raised to believe its a sin.

Idk my mil told my sil (a lesbian) that "lesbianism is nothing but a distorted form of masturbation"
Lol I am religous and I masturbate.

*Disclaimer: I do NOT share the same views as my mil.

 I looked thru about 8 different websites when i googled your question. the general consenses I've found is no where in the bible does it say masterbation is sinful however it does repeatedly say the act of sex is fine but anything else could be a sin by content. if you think it's a sin, it's a sin.

personally, as an athiest, with your husband away in the military, conforting yourself while he's away is alot better than what some turn to for pleasurable company. I think you are fine.

Its not a sin in itself, the sinful part comes from where your mind is during. If you are married you should only be thinking about your spouse and making sure you go to them first and not denying them. The Scripture says whoever lusts after another with their eyes has already committed adultery with their heart. Not an exact quote as I don't have my Bible with me now. So masturbation is fine as long as you don't bring others into it, so no porn or celebrities on your mind and your not using it to replace your spouse.

No. It's never wrong to touch your body if it makes you happy. Unless of course it's mutilation.

Masterbation is a sin regardless. Every Christian sins though. Myself I don't think it's wrong..There is no way you can be a Christian and not sin.
