Thank you for asking this, know that our God is a god of love so there is NO condemnation! So I googled “is masturbating a sin” I got a variety of answers but here is the what I gathered… Where is your mind? Who are you thinking of when you’re masturbating? As females we are very emotionally based and that deep connection that comes from sex is longed for… BUT I feel women are just as easily aroused by visuals… I truly feel a lot of the sin in masturbating lies in impure thoughts (lust). Because of our natural sin nature I don’t believe there is way to masturbate with pure thoughts unless it is about your spouse (whom you’re currently married to)… The truth is masturbating can be a stress reliever… It releases chemicals in the brain that can alleviate tension… Don’t take this as me giving a pass and saying you should masturbate. I know God is strong and can keep us from our stumbling blocks. You’re struggling with conviction because you feel you’re sinning. You want a clear answer and I truly don’t have one. Every time you have an urge I recommend praying and asking God why these urges arise… Asking God to show you why you need to masturbate… Ask God if you’re substituting heavenly glories for worldly trash. It’s always a heart matter and the best advice I can give is to approach Jesus face to face and be humbled before His throne!
