In the New Testament, circumcision is accomplished in the inner man, "by putting off the body of flesh in the circumcision of Christ," according to Colossians 2. Since discomfort is assumed to indicate something wrong, the practices of suppression, mortification, and sublimation are judged masochistic, old-fashioned, or simply naive and dumb. Here is a question son-- What if you found out the lady you are going to marry was masturbating all the time? The more of your sexual pleasure you save for you husband, the happier you will be. Therefore honor God with your body. Thank God that he can empower you to have a joyful marriage even though your husband is physcially limited.
I imagine that before this scripture was written, people would have just assumed that eating food offered to idols was a sin. It is noteworthy that while the normal sexual process between husband and wife made both partners ceremonially unclean no guilt was involved and so no sacrifice was required. Whenever you get some time, read 1 Corinthians 8. What deems the action a sin is an individuals thoughts and wether or not the action becomes sexual obsession.

MASTURBATION-- Is it a sin according to the Bible?
Since masturbation is a sexual act done by yourself, it is sin. Sitting in front of a computer with underwear around your ankles doesn't sound normal to me. And every garment and every skin on which the semen comes shall be washed with water, and be unclean until the evening. According to Genesis Children who have been taught to stick to a task and see it through will be better equipped to deal with sexual temptations than children who have been pampered and catered to.

I suppose that a man or woman who are married could have their mind on their spouse and sin of lust in the mind could be eliminated. God must handle it, and God has handled it. It seems that copulation in a man will help to relieve the effects of prostrate problems of middle age. Burning with passion is only a danger zone in that it may lead to fornication unless they got married , but Paul did not condemn it as sin. In contrast, some people generally abstain from masturbation but periodically "act-out" for a relatively short time. Masturbation by girls was even more shocking, shameful, and unmentionable!
