I wonder, since i do not masturbate, why would masturbation without lust be so bad. Seeking lustful things....consenting to lustful desires....seeking to have lustful dreams...lustful thoughts ...consenting to lust ..is gravely sinful.I do not masturbate so every two months or so i have wet dreams followed by ejaculation. But an out of the blue temptation that one sets aside is not a sin.I believe in God and think he will think I'm a bad person, I hate these sick thoughts and compulsions they make me feel so bad please any help ?I get the same fears, the more you try to not think about something the more it pops into your head, it happened to me when my pocd was really bad, I was afriad of think about my mates little sister during masterbation, the more I tryied to suppress it the more it came on, nothing sexual, just the name, at the time it really messed me up, but now I understand it's the ocd.Masturbation is when people touch their own bodies for sexual pleasure. Touching your own body for sexual pleasure is different for everyone.
My libido has been decreasing steadily over the last few years.Today was quite a good day for me, but while in the bath I felt the urge to masturbate.I didn't want to do it but I did and although at first it was just normal stuff, nothing bad sexually intrusive thoughts came in and although I wasn't thinking about anything bad sexually like having sex with family members the worry that I might and I just thought of them non sexually while I was masturbating came into my mind and so for hours afterwards I had to really make sure that I was climaxing while thinking about a guy and the original non bad sexual thoughts I had about non real people, but while my mum was talking to me I was doing it and I felt so bad and she mentioned the name of a family member while I was trying to masturbate but I wasn't thinking about them I would never think of any of them sexually but because she mentioned it while I was trying to masturbate it made me feel bad.It seems like God planned for me to ejaculate every months or so. One simply turns to something else that is good and ignores it.But since lusting is obviously a sin, don't you think that it is better to mastrurbate without lust every 3 weeks than have lustfull wet dreams and a lust problems day before wet dreams? I wonder, since i do not masturbate, why would masturbation without lust be so bad.
