According to dictionary.com, this is the definition of a Sport.

"an athletic activity requiring skill or physical prowess such as racing, baseball, tennis,golf, bowling, wrestling, boxing, hunting, fishing, etc."

Masturbation could be classed as one as it does take physical age and ability to be able to masturbate. Children can't do it and neither can people of certain disabilities yet they can potentially play golf, or run, or fish. Masturbation is a sport of skill. Like swimming you could either do it for pleasure or do it competitively reaching the end of it before someone else.

Like common sports it is also very healthy for your body. It can decrease stress, give you extra strength, help your sexuality and can reduce risks of prostate cancer.

however it is very immoral and is despiced by god. so typing is a sport? it requires physical strenght. what about pooping? it requires effort.

The morality of masturbation to a religious faith should not determine whether it is a sport or not. In Leviticus 7:11 you will find a verse against Pork, does that make it any less of a food?

The thing that differs pooping and typing from masturbation is that masturbation is a physical activity which improves your strength and can have positive effects on your sports performance. It is a physical exercise therefore some will class it as a sport.

Well technically it requires being able to show a person masterbating on public tv, which isn't allowed so they couldn't broadcast those events except on Pay-per-view channels that are TV-MA or XXX because it is exposing a male or female genital area on camera for people to view, thus it is considered an adult programn.

However I agree that Masturbation could be classified as a sport, though not a major one like football or basketball, but one of those minor ones like dodgeball or cricket.
