Sex and Religion
What happens when religion intervenes with sexual activity before marriage? I am a Christian and pastors continuously preach about sexual abstinence and against masturbation. So are we supposed to have wet dreams until we get married? I have masturbated by the way; #1 because of the urge that the hormones and my human nature and female attraction impulses me greatly, #2 because I prefer to empty the sack in a way I can easily clean it off than wake up with a messy bed and dirty pajamas and undies!!! I need an experts opinion I want both points of views Christian and none Christian! Sexologist say occasional masturbation is part of a healthy life style and when having a partner sex is healthy too! I bet whoever wrote the abstinence rule also use to masturbate! I believe masturbation and sex at the appropriate age is part of human nature. By the way I'm over 21 and I haven't had sex yet. Isn't watching porn and masturbating the same thing as sex, ideologically?
