You are wrong. This is actually really healthy for you if you do it in appropriate quantities. Masturbating help lowers the chance of prostate cancer.

True as that may be, that does not answer the debate question. The question asked was "is masturbating good for you." And, as most scientists and physicians alike can agree, all claims for negative side effects of masturbation are indeed just claims. Masturbation has been proven to relieve stress and sexual tension, prevent prostate cancer, build up pelvic muscles (which can reduce the risk of erectile dysfunction), and help you last longer when the time comes for someone else to give you a tug.

Masturbation is also a multi-million dollar industry, so their for scientist and doctors will never do a research on the negative impact it has on people, instead they will do all they can even if they can find one positive thing about it. If you really want to know the truth with an open heart, you might hate this because I find many people on the internet to really hate the Bible, because they don't like to hear the truth.

But any ways hear you go.
What is the Bible"s view of masturbation?
`42; Answer: The Bible does not specifically mention masturbation"the deliberate self-stimulation that produces sexual arousal and orgasm. However, God"s Word commands Christians: "Deaden, therefore, your body members that are upon the earth as respects fornication, uncleanness, [and improper] sexual appetite.""Colossians 3:5.
Masturbation fosters a distorted and self-centered view of sex. The Bible assures us that God can impart "power beyond what is normal" to those who make a sincere effort to break this habit."2 Corinthians 4:7; Philippians 4:13.

Scientist may show you other affects of masturbation, but the negative effect it has on you are all in the mind, you will de-value women, or see them as sex tools, when you see a beautiful women you will not look at what it is that make her beautiful you will only focus inappropriate thoughts and in the matter your mind is completely unclean.

And yes this is a sin, for you are defiling your body, which Jehovah said you should not, and when you are a marry men or women, well that's a whole new story, and the bible is very clear on that one, if you are wife or a husband masturbation is is serious sin to God.
