For some men, if you don't have sex and don't masturbate, your body will eventually decide to release sperm during sleep. A side effect may be vivid, erotic dreams -- which can be even more intensely pleasurable than actual sex. Although since the dreams are unintentional, I suppose they have no kammic implications.

Still, if your goal is to minimize erotic distractions, a quick wank now and then might be a relatively efficient solution. I'm just saying...

What's wrong?

Tell you what... Abstain from all sexual activity (both physically and mentally) for a month or two. If any sexual thoughts rise at that time, ignore them. It's best not to experience any arousal at that time. If you get mildly aroused, calm yourself before the arousal gets more intense.

After the month (or two) is finished, masturbate and pay close attention to your mind and body. You will get the answer to your question.

From the standpoint of Buddhism... it is a joke to say there's nothing wrong with masturbation or sensual pleasure when the Buddha recommended dispassion and said that desire is the cause of rebirth and suffering.

It's funny how people get so fixated on sex and masterbation. As far as I know, Buddha only encouraged celibacy among monks and nuns.

am i mistaken in believing that 'sexual misconduct' is the same as 'unneccesary sexual conduct'?
maturbation by its nature is an entirely selfish act.

if one was practicing mindfullness would the act of masturbation become unfinishable due to the loss of sexual arousal?
Aflame with the fire of passion, the fire of aversion, the fire of delusion.
Aflame, with birth, aging & death, with sorrows, lamentations, pains, distresses, & despairs ......

Seeing thus, the disciple of the Noble One grows disenchanted. SN 35.28

Hi i want to confess to you buddhist followers of the 5 precepts that i masturbate today, i feel guilty and with pain and shame but how to recover? I think it takes a lot to the body to rest and the mind to follow virtue. What is yoir advice?
I think karma is the first topic we should understand before starting in meditation.

“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Ricebowl,
I don't give a rat's arse about your sex life.
If you read my question to you, I wanted you to indicate whether you have textual evidence in the tipitaka or commentarial literature of your contention that I highlighted and quoted above.
