All erotic enjoyment can be considered good, healthy and psychologically beneficial.
QUESTION: Seriously. I think masturbation rocks way beyond any religion! Am I evil?
RESPONSE: Not at all. With all due respect for the fact that not all religion is a negative (it sometimes provides people with a sense of identity and even some decent guidelines for behavior) unfortunately many religious teachings contain anti-pleasure, anti-sexual messages. Plenty of old superstitious taboos remain concerning not only the human enjoyment of sexuality, but specifically, our beloved pastime of masturbation
After the original inspiration of major religions, with some real value at the start, there has been a reinforcement of the beliefs with control mechanisms. One effective control mechanism most religions employ to some extent involve the codification of human sexual behavior. The engineering of “right” vs. “wrong” behaviors concerning pleasure and sex no longer aligns with current knowledge from less biased sources.
Curiously, all religious cultures now rely upon scientific medicine for most medical treatments, and for most everyday practical purposes rely upon technological processes. Religion has largely been relegated to offering so-called “explanations” of many inexplicable mysteries and uncertainties such as afterlife. Or masturbation.
Regardless of what other religious beliefs you may choose to keep, you are smart and wise to question authority and think for yourself upon matters of sexual pleasure and masturbation. So long as you behave responsibly, and do not harm anyone in the process, all erotic enjoyment can be considered good, healthy and psychologically beneficial. In fact, a man who is a happy masturbator, who can enjoy intense penis pleasure with increasing skill and dedication as he lives his life, is likely to be a happier, more balanced man who can contribute to society, and may be less likely to harm others.
Thorough enjoyment of masturbation is part of good health and sane behavior. It encourages you to take good care of yourself, and to accept full responsibility for how much ecstatic pleasure you enjoy. No other form of erotic pleasure has so much versatility and can be given to yourself at virtually any time. IT can also be shared, of course, as a wonderful form of male bonding.
In truth, we have entered a period in the story of humanity where it is smart and timely to actively resist certain cultural pressures. For example, the assumption that everyone must couple-up, become partnered, in order to achieve happiness and value in the eyes of others. There are many different ways to have a happy and fully rewarding life.
Any traditional religious belief or practice that adds meaning, or cultural or ethnic flavor to your life is fine and it’s nobody’s business, except that specifically anti-pleasure beliefs must be questioned and discarded as the blatant and destructive control mechanisms they are.
No reasonable, decent person would suggest that you are evil for preferring masturbation to religion, and most likely more and more men in today’s world will agree with you.
