Question

Hello, I got a question about masturbation.

God knows it's hard to overcome this, but I get tempted once in a while, and I start to want to watching porn, but somehow I manage to not do it. However, I get so aroused that I need to go to the bathroom to ejaculate. I don't even touch it, and I ejaculate. Does it count as masturbation? I need the answer.

Thanks.


Answer

It is called auto-ejaculation and it can happen. Most put these events in the same category as wet dreams, not counting them as masturbation. But the point isn't whether it is masturbation or not. The question is whether your are getting yourself involved in sexual lust either through pornography or mental images of pornography. To desire and accept the idea of having sex without being married is a sin. "Let us walk properly, as in the day, not in revelry and drunkenness, not in lewdness and lust, not in strife and envy. But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to fulfill its lusts" (Romans 13:13-14).
