The Bible Describes Healthy and Unhealthy Sexual Behavior
Does the Bible talk about masturbation? Is it a sin? Where can we find Scriptures to know if masturbation is right or wrong?

There are no peer-reviewed studies linking it to obesity or reduced charitable giving, and it is virtually the only thing on earth that doesn't give you cancer.
