    However, it is pertinent to the OP question.

    What psychological traits are apparent or reflected in the ways that atheists ... discuss God/gods and religion?

    I agree, although in ways you probably don't anticipate.

    Although I think you are seriously toxic, I welcome your foolishness because it represents a good look at what lies beneath the hood, of this delusion.
    For that, I thank you.

    "What psychological traits are apparent or reflected in the ways that atheists and theists... discuss God/gods and religion?". Don't parse.

    Well, I'd say a short road to neurosis is denying ones sexuality and I mean that in very broad terms. I'm sure you guys know that the term "superego" was coined by, Freud, as a part of the psyche along with the ego and id.

    Since you are an atheist, with spparent self-confessed airs of innocuousness and all that, I edited it appropriately.

    I didn't think I needed defending. This thread was about psychology of people and sex/lust is a very primal instinct affecting personality. Jan, started on some fictitious scenario about men doing harm to women. Letting loose frustration for the betterment of some society. I just changed the narrative; kept it real, and talked about masturbation. Can't all people get sexually aroused all of a sudden without even knowing what triggered it? Well, I can, but I know there's a time and place and doesn't take a PhD in cognitive psychology to realize some thoughts are a big distraction.

    (Also, I said "denying" sexuality in an earlier post when I probably should have used the word "repress".)

    I believe it all stems from a very fundamental cosmic imperative of "movement in the direction of greatest satisfaction", which extends far beyond the "pleasure principle" in animals.

    I'd be surprised to hear of many men getting aroused without knowing what triggered it. Generally (and that's a big generally) men tend to be more one-track-minded. They also tend to be stimulated more visually. So there's not a lot of likely stimuli to sift through, looking for an answer.

    OTOH, if you're simply talking about 'springin' a boner' that's not uncommon, and often has no conscious cause. But it isn't really associated with sexual arousal; it's just an annoying 'glitch' in the system.

    Old adage:

    97% of men masturbate.
    And 3% are liars.

    If you take the Bible literally, yes, looking at a woman lustfully who isn't your wife is a sin. I don't think masturbation need be part of that.

    As a side: Is society ready to accept Mastersexuals? Or are they doomed to hide under the sheets?

    Suitably chastised

    But I think I have a serious point none the less

    Is mutual same as solo or does mutual raise it above and change the level of 'sin' or what ever the Religious View is on the subject

    Does it make it more bad?

    I'll jump some recent questions and:

    Abrahamic religions
    Biblical scholarship
    The biblical story of Onan (Gen. 38) is traditionally linked to referring to masturbation and condemnation thereof,[3] but the sexual act described by this story is coitus interruptus, not masturbation.[4][5][6][7][8] There is no explicit claim in the Bible that masturbation is sinful.[9][10]

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Religious_views_on_masturbation#Abrahamic_religions

    So, why am I toxic?
