I’m 17 year-old girl and I don’t really masturbate, but I definitely touch myself. I did today. I’m Christian so this makes me feel really bad. I’m honestly trying to stop, but sometimes I think it’s a good idea until right after I do it. Or I’ll rationalize why God would think it’s okay, even though he wouldn’t. I heard that confession is the only way to truly be forgiven of sins, but I don’t feel comfortable sharing this with anyone at my church. I don’t feel like I could trust them not to tell my parents. I’m hoping this will substitute for it. Honestly I get so worried because I try to pray to God, but I don’t feel like he’s there like I used to. I know this might sound stupid, but it’s just how I feel. Honestly, sometimes I wonder if God was really there, and I was really trying to reach out to him, and if he really loves me, why wouldn’t I feel him? Anyways that’s it. I’m going to try to confess everyday to keep me honest and all that. Okay. Bye.

  • Masturbation is natural to humans, I understand that your faith is important to you, but it’s a natural urge you have. If you really want to get it out, you should. You are obviously conflicted about this situation, I would try to not push down the emotions of your sexual desires, and rather become one with them. Because restraining your desires can have unintended consequences.

  • I’m not religious, but if you no longer feel as close to God as you did before touching yourself, maybe try some religious practices to become closer to Him, like fasting. I’m sure God will forgive you, and just know (like the person above me said) that masturbation is totally natural 🙂 I wish you luck!

  • I’m a Catholic and have been a steady masterbater since I was about 9,there is nothing wrong with it. It will do you much more damage not to relieve yourself than to supress it.

    There are bigger problems for God to worry about than if some of us enjoy our bodies 🙂
