It can be embarassing but not much you can do about it other than hide it or try to distract yourself. Guys I just HATE it when I get that random out of nowhere huge erection in the middle of the day, first thing in the morning, or just sitting on the bus. I may have come off a bit strong in earlier forum posts but maybe I was asking the wrong gender. Not to worry, it will eventually go away on its own. " People have many answers for these questions according to their faith and religious practices and other values.
(2) “Everything that does not come from faith is sin” (Romans ). In light of these principles, many conclude that masturbation is always sinful.
If we are not fully convinced that an activity is honoring to God, it is a sin. Masturbation is a questionable activity, at best—whether it can glorify God; whether it can be done in absolute confidence that it is right; and whether it can honor God as the owner of our bodies.
What you have to remember is that you don't like having these thoughs or enjoy them at all, otherwise you wouldent feel guilty, or be on this website looking for help, also I would try and avoid doing it when other people are around look for some private time, I know this sounds odd but I woudlent say stop materbating, the more you hide from your fear the bigger it gets, if you do it again and have the intrusive thoughts, think ok yea i'm thinking about this person but, I know I don't want to be and im not enjoying this even if it is sexual in nature, if it gets to weird then stop, tell your self I don't need to prove anything, because you already know you hate this, and are we not taught that god loves all people, I dont think god will look down on you, but be proud that you are trying Keep at it, you will make it.
Thank you for the reply I know normally I would do it when I'm alone in the house but the OCD yesterday was making me do it while I wasn't, I've already decided I'm not going to do it again, not while my OCD is so bad as it causes me too much problems and anxiety , but thank you for what you've said does make me feel better Glad I could help, when you say the ocd made you do it, do you mean you were doing it as a checking routine ?
It's been awhile since somebody responded to this post, but I thought I would respond anyways. Although masturbation may feel good and seem like a way of acting out sexual feelings, I think something that psychcentral would agree with something I am going to say because there is a forum on this topic.
Perhaps behind your question of what you said of being frustated of what to do about getting an errection when you don't want to at times is what is normal for getting errections? When a person masturbates, it can easily become addictive.
The problem is that if you are trying to force that thought out of your brain at the time of masturbation, it's like someone asking you to not think about a pink elephant. The trick is to accept it for what it is and just realise that you are a good person and these thoughts are just the ocd playing up.
The reality is that you wouldn't be on this forum if you were ok with these thoughts.
The passage most frequently associated with masturbation is the story of Onan in Genesis 38:9–10.
Some interpret this passage to say that “spilling your seed” is a sin. God condemned Onan not for “spilling his seed” but because Onan was rebellious.
Onan refused to fulfill his duty to provide an heir for his deceased brother.
