"Masturbation is built on a self-centered view of sex. This wrong attitude says that sex is solely about you and your pleasure. Your body. Your genitals. Your orgasm. This is the natural tendency of sin. It isolates us from others and makes pleasure self-focused. When our lustful desires are given free rein, sex is pushed into a corner and made a completely self-centered, isolated experience that reinforces a self-centered view of life." [1]

"Sex was not meant to be a selfish pursuit. It was not intended to focus a person's thoughts on himself and his own needs. Rather, sex was designed as a means of fulfilling the Lord's command to esteem another higher than oneself. The pleasure of sex is not meant to be enjoyed in isolation, but to be enjoyed while providing that same pleasure to another. Autoeroticism cannot fulfill God's design for sexuality, and thus has no place in the life of one who calls himself a Christian." [2]
