My Friend Taught Me to Masturbate

I started masturbating when I was 15 years old through the influence of my friend. He was a very good friend to me, he tried to seduce me but I resisted him.  I told him that if he tried again, I would not go out with him again and he left me for some time. 

After a while, he came to me again with the same issue and at that time he taught me how to do it by myself.  I continued from that time until I was baptized. 

The Lord Helped Me Overcome My Addiction

I continued in this shameful act until this year when the Lord saved me from this deadly sin. I prayed and fasted on my own several times for several years until the Lord really answered my prayers.  Now, I have hope for the future glory of His coming.  I really need everyone to pray because there are many people who are struggling like I was.  Thank you.

  1. Hi! Here is my story: I have been ashamed of it as well, when I was teenager and later, but then I understood - that it's just a natural need. The only thing that the bible says about sinning in this matter is, don't look on another man's wife with lust.
    Also, we will never be perfect, we can only try to be better. Because at the end it's all up to G O D' S M E R C Y. And masturbation would be the last of sins, because you don't harm anyone. Unfortunately, there is no objective information in churches about sexuality and sex life, before and even after marriage. We humans are the only creatures on earth who do sex also for pleasure, but no one from christian society have actually told how can man actually please his wife and opposite. My friend once said, that he thinks that his wife is frigid...this can also mean that he don't know how to give pleasure to his wife. Also, most evangelical churches don't allow use of condoms or other protection!
    P.S. My first time sex was... on my wedding night.

    Regards and blessings! I'm 30 y. old, 10 years happily married 🙂
