Biblical scholarship[ edit ] The biblical story of Onan Gen. Johnson's biblical view on masturbation: Verses 16 and 17 say that a man who has an emission of semen should wash and be ceremonially unclean until evening. Verse 18 goes on to say that if a man and woman have intercourse, the same cleanliness rules apply. By bringing up intercourse separately, the passage surely does imply that the emission of semen in verses 16 and 17 occurred for the man individually. The passage may be referring to a nocturnal emission, or wet dream, rather than masturbation, but the passage is not specific.

Introduction Both the Old Testament and the New Testament of our Bibles are unequivocal in teaching that God created human sexual expression when He created everything else, and that His intention has always been for sexual expression to be confined to marriage--between one man and one woman. All pre-marital or extra-marital sexual expression--as well as all infidelity within a marriage, reflects our broken condition as sinners in this present world. The New Testament uses words such as porneia in a broad sense, as an umbrella term. Is masturbation, as discussed below, on the list? This very common practice is selfish, self-centered , augmented by fantasies and usually followed by guilt, real or imagined.
