is a thoughtful coming-of-age story about a girl genius with OCD whose grandma wants her to go to public middle school to make one friend, read one non-math book, and join one school activity.
And at all times I was hiding something from my wife.The damage this causes a relationship is not measurable, but it is substantial, even if you wife is not aware of it. So, I understand that some people will still think masturbation is OK, that there is no harm, that it’s not adultery, it’s not sinful and they are doing it without lust, so who is it harming?There were times I could not perform sexually because I had already masturbated too many times that day.There were times I avoided sexual encounters because I was worried my wife would realized I was being sexually active without her.While in the marriage bed poll, over half the men said they were having sex with their spouse once a week or less.
Who wants to bet that a large overlap of these are the people who are having sex with themselves as often or more than with their spouse?This is a question that I’ve been thinking about for most of my marriage.I see a lot of arguments on both sides of the fence but the Bible isn’t explicitly clear on the topic, so that leaves me with logic, as I’ve always loved this quote: I do not feel obliged to believe that the same God who has endowed us with senses, reason, and intellect has intended us to forego their use and by some other means to give us knowledge which we can attain by them. Well, because if they are watching porn, you can bet they are masturbating.Now, if 53% of all christian men are masturbating and not feeling ok with it, and over half of of them men at the Promise Keepers convention said they have watched porn in the last week, that sort of adds up to a scary Venn diagram with a major overlap.I posit that a very large majority of these Christian men are masturbating while watching porn.Now, I say this in all love, having struggled with all this before.
