    Sexuality in Teens - Masturbation

    Your hormones fuel lust. Masturbation temporarily sates that lust. Though if it were not for lust, no life would persist beyond a generation. Well, if you are going to govern your behavior according to what your denomination teaches, that's different. I was more concerned with what the Bible itself says on the matter, which is nothing.

    I wasn't aware adultery had a broader sense, though I guess we would have to go back to the original Greek, as 'adultery' is just the english translation; but in any case, Jesus was referring to the seventh commandment. Jesus' point seems to be that it is better to not even contemplate sin. My point in that since having sex with an unmarried woman is not forbidden anywhere in the Mosiac law, thinking about it couldn't be wrong under Jesus' new Covenant.

    Jesus said to lust after a woman is to commit adultery with her in your heart. Notice he said ADULTERY, which would require you or the object of your lust to be married. As long as the girls you are thinking of when you... comfort yourself aren't married, I don't see how this could possibly be a sin.
