Many people may be surprised to learn that ejaculation and menstrual periods are both discussed in the Bible. This article will examine what the bible says about these two natural body functions.
Masturbation involves lust, and the Bible speaks against lust. This is especially important for married Christians, who should not masturbate during their marital time.
In Leviticus 15 God lays out a number of rules regarding bodily discharges. This particular one refers to the time when a man has an emission of semen. He is unclean, so he must stay away from women (and other people) until the semen has passed. It is interesting to note that while God deals with these private and sexual issues in a direct way He does so in a very polite, dignified fashion.
There is a reason for this, because it is not really the case that the man is ejaculating without having intercourse. Rather, this verse seems to be talking about a nocturnal emission (the involuntary release of sperm from the penis while sleeping) or masturbation. However, a lot of people have tried to read this record into more general passages about lust and masturbation and warned young men that they will suffer impotence or blindness if they engage in this sinful practice.
This is an extremely unfortunate interpretation of this record. The problem with this is that it would imply that the Lord took Onan’s life because he was masturbating, when in fact he was simply doing what was required of him as a brother-in-law to his dead brother’s wife. He withdrew his penis before he ejaculated so that his deceased brother’s wife would not conceive a child.
Many people wonder if the Bible says anything about masturbation. The fact is that it doesn’t explicitly mention masturbation, but it does discuss other ways that men ejaculate. Leviticus 20:10-12 talks about a discharge of semen from a man’s penis and other places. This can be caused by wet dreams, nocturnal emissions (under the law, these made a man unclean), or masturbation.
The man who has the discharge of semen from his body must bathe in water and be unclean until evening. Also, “every garment, and every skin” where there is seminal emission must be washed. This is a serious violation of God’s commandments and should be avoided by believers.
Leviticus 15:16-17 says that if a man ejaculates without having sexual relations with a woman, he and the woman must both bathe in water to be unclean until evening. This is probably referring to wet dreams or nocturnal emissions, but the scripture doesn’t specifically name either of these things. It could also be describing masturbation, since it is a way that men can ejaculate without having sexual intercourse.
However, Onan was not slain because he was masturbating. The Lord killed him because he denied a child to his dead brother’s wife Tamar. When he went to bed with Tamar, Onan knew that the children she conceived would not count as his sons. So, he deliberately spilled his semen on the ground to prevent her from getting pregnant.
Men may be surprised to know that the Bible discusses ejaculation. While many people believe that masturbation is a sin, the Bible actually does not explicitly forbid it. However, it does talk about nocturnal emissions and other sexual activities that may be unclean.
The Bible also talks about the procedure of “pulling out.” This is a practice where a man withdraws his penis during the sex act before he ejaculates sperm. This is done to prevent pregnancy. It is usually done during the climax of sex, and it gives the woman a feeling of satisfaction before she gets her climax. It is also known as onanism, and it was developed by Sigmund Freud.
One of the most famous biblical cases of onanism was that of Onan, the first son of Judah. He had a wife that was his sister-in-law, and he was supposed to sire a child on his brother’s behalf. However, Onan did not want to father a child that was not his own, so he used the practice of onanism to avoid having sex with his brother’s widow. The Lord considered this to be evil, and He killed Onan.
The Bible does not talk about masturbation or ejaculation, but it does mention other sexual activities that are considered unclean by the Most High. For example, if a man has an emission of semen during the night, it is unclean until he bathes himself in water. It is also unclean for him to eat anything that is holy until he has washed himself in water.
The Old Testament rules on sex were pretty strict. For example, a woman’s menstruation made her unclean, and if she had sex while that was happening, they would be both unclean (Leviticus 15:16-17). Men were also considered unclean when they ejaculated, but this wasn’t because they had sex; it was because there was an emission of semen.
This could happen during sex or when someone was masturbating. The fact that it was considered unclean did not imply that masturbation was wrong, but a person should avoid it because it tends to lead to lust and is a form of self-gratification.
In the story of Onan, he was having intercourse with Tamar and then, instead of finishing his sex act, he chose to withdraw his penis before ejaculating. He did this because he didn’t want to get Tamar pregnant by his brother’s wife (which was a requirement under the old law). He was punished for doing this because it was considered greedy and disobedient to God.
Despite what many people think, sexual pleasure is not sinful, but it is important to limit this enjoyment and to pursue true fulfillment through God’s gift of marriage between one man and one woman (Genesis 2:18-25). If you are having your period, please don’t hesitate to hug and touch other women because they can feel your love.
