In these cases they are not lusting after another person. In your honesty, in the truth of your words, may God use you to help others cast off bondage that has weighed down their body and soul. References Adams, Jay E. He created us in his own image, and is our creator.

Is masturbation wrong?
I will be focusing on males being one myself , but the concepts about masturbation can also be appropriately applied to females. How many wives really have that problem?

At that point, any activity—whether eating, playing golf, watching a sunset, or masturbating—has been abused, and the person has fallen into the sin of idolatry. This is an area where we have to be careful about laying down hard and fast rules or making definitive statements about the mind of God though Scripture does clearly address behaviors that are often related to this activity. It gives him relief from tensions building up in his body, but in his mind it is also a way of expressing that he loves and cares for the one with whom he is having sex. We can never really rid ourselves of impurities and filth.

You should really be awarded in heaven. In fact Paul seems to imply that the only people immune from sexual desires and needs are those with the gift of celibacy. Thank you for this very honest question. Paul presents marital sex as a tool to help married people manage their lack of self control. He prostrated with His ripped shirt on the chest near His Heart, and prayed for hours, while in the process ejaculated His semen, for divine purposes known only to Himself as God.
