    Mutual masturbation is an act between two people. I don't think the Bible frowns on that in principle.

    One person's opinion does not make it so.

    It doesn’t mean I know why you are the way you are.

    : shrug : chlorine is toxic to harmful bacteria.

    Perhaps Jan sees himself as an infection that is in danger from your cleanliness.

    The point remains: someone else's view of you doesn't change you. You know best who you are.

    I know it's bad form to paste text things, and still this is not directly related to masturbation and religion, my views could be pretty much summed up by someone else:

    Overview
    Freud enumerates what he sees as the fundamental tensions between civilization and the individual. The primary friction, he asserts, stems from the individual's quest for instinctive freedom and civilization's contrary demand for conformity and repression of instincts. Freud states that when any situation that is desired by the pleasure principle is prolonged, it creates a feeling of mild contentment. Many of humankind's primitive instincts (for example, the desire to kill and the insatiable craving for sexual gratification) are clearly harmful to the well-being of a human community. As a result, civilization creates laws that prohibit killing, rape, and adultery, and it implements severe punishments if these rules are broken. Thus our possibilities for happiness are restricted by the law. This process, argues Freud, is an inherent quality of civilization that gives rise to perpetual feelings of discontent among its citizens.

    Freud's theory is based on the notion that humans have certain characteristic instincts that are immutable[citation needed]. These include, most notably, the desires for sex, and the predisposition to violent aggression towards authority figures and sexual competitors, who obstruct the individual's path to gratification.

    Thought maybe it could be of some interest.

    If you are single you are not human if you don't masturbate. So God must of masturbated at some stage. Another thread.

    Not all people have sexual appetites. Some people identify as asexual. They're simply not interested. It happens.

    They don't care if you don't believe them.

    It's queer your belief in people who agree with your own sense of reality.

    No, I'm right because I made an argument, instead of just making dumb ad homs. Ad hom is a logical fallacy.

    A libido is very important to the survival of our species. So I assume God has got one, he is a man, with potentially one son, if the genetics are tested. Jesus said he lived forever right? So yeah, I think God wouldn't be like 99% of men if he didn't have a libido. What would be the point of being real?

    Sorry, but do you seriously believe that?
