I am a Christian - Is Masturbation a sin or not a sin?
Hi, I am a Christian and I am stuck on whether masturbating is sin or not sin.
I am 16 and never really masturbated before, mainly because it never interested me however deep in my mind I was worried. The reason I was worried is because my friends were saying "Oh yer I do it" etc. And when I tried briefly/quickly nothing happened. This worried me because I want to have babies one day and if I can't do it then I might never be able to have babies.
So I started looking how to do it, and I managed to do it after my second attempt. I was happy, but then I felt guilty and awful. I thought is this a sin against God? I am sure God wouldn't mind me doing it for that sake, but because I have done it, I feel the urge to do it again.
Is this wrong?
Furthermore when reading and trying to find answers, I ask another question, is it a sin to get *** on your body, clothes or on the floor?
AND what about not masturbating gives you cancer?

Most Christians believe it is not a sin. I have put together a web site of pro-masturbation statements from theologians. See the link below.
A team of doctors led by Dr. Graham Giles found that males who masturbate most often in their teens and 20s have the least incidence of prostate cancer later. Dr. Giles recommends that young males masturbate at least six times a week. Ejaculation is necessary to flush away sexual fluids that have built up inside a man's genitals. Dr. Giles believes that masturbation is better than intercourse because males who have a lot of intercourse are exposing themselves to STDs.
Masturbation is one God's greatest gifts to men. All Christians should celebrate that!
