What Does the Bible Say About Ejaculation?

Many people believe that masturbation is a sin because of Genesis 38:9-10. This passage says that Onan “spilled his seed on the ground” and was condemned for this act. However, this passage is not about masturbation but rather about a family obligation.

Often, people try to read this passage into other biblical passages about sexual immorality and uncleanness. This is a mistake.

What is ejaculation?

Ejaculation is when a sticky liquid (called semen or cum) comes out of your penis. It most often happens after orgasm, but can happen without orgasm too. It is caused by a combination of things happening in your body including nervous system actions and your urinary tract.

When your sexual excitement reaches a critical level, nerves that go from your reproductive system to parts of your spinal cord start to stimulate the bladder neck and vas deferens, the tubes that store and transport semen from your testicles. This causes them to contract and squeeze the fluid in your penis toward the base of your spermatic cord. As the fluid moves toward this point, it mixes with sperm that has traveled to your prostate from your testicles. Then the sperm and fluid move into your urethra where they are released.

This process is also referred to as nocturnal emission or night wetting. It is very common for a man to have a period of time during the night when they ejaculate.

Many people use the story of Onan in Genesis 38 to teach that masturbation is a sin. However, Onan’s sin wasn’t masturbation; it was his greed in not wanting to sire an heir for his brother. This was a selfish act that led to God slaying him.

Does ejaculation make you unclean?

Many Christians claim that masturbation is sinful, citing Bible passages like Genesis 38:6-10 (where Onan was struck to death for refusing to father children for his brother’s wife) and Matthew 5:27-28 (where Jesus states that anyone who looks at a woman lustfully has committed adultery with her). While the Bible does not explicitly mention masturbation, it did cover sexual impurities in Old Testament laws.

For instance, Leviticus 15:16-17 says that any time a man emits semen, he must wash himself and anything he touches, since the emission makes him cultically unclean. While the law doesn’t specifically mention masturbation, this would likely include wet dreams and nocturnal emissions which often occur during puberty.

This also applies to a married couple having sex, who must separate themselves for one day when they ejaculate. These laws were not meant to discourage masturbation, but rather to keep men and women from sexually impurities that could be spread. However, the Old Testament laws did not make a distinction between moral and ceremonial impurity so that the uncleanliness of a man’s ejaculation was not necessarily due to a specific sin. This is similar to how a woman’s monthly blood flow makes her unclean but does not mean she has sinned. The same goes for ejaculation, which is no different from going to the bathroom and removing faeces or sweat.

Does ejaculation make you sinful?

While there is no Bible passage that specifically states masturbation is a sin, certain behaviors often associated with masturbation are sinful. For example, if you masturbate while thinking lustful thoughts about other people or using pornography, you are engaging in a sinful act.

Additionally, masturbation can lead to other problems, such as uncleanness and sexual immorality. The Bible warns us against these things and tells us to avoid them at all costs.

During my youth, I was taught that masturbation was a sin and that it would cause terrible things like impotence and blindness to happen to me if I did it. While there are some truths to these scare tactics, they do not hold up under closer examination. Most Christians agree that masturbation is a sin, but there is no biblical proof of this claim. The most popular argument is based on Genesis 38:9-10, which mentions Onan “spilling his seed.” While Onan was slain for this action, the actual issue was that he refused to sire an heir on behalf of his dead brother.

The most important thing to remember is that masturbation is almost always a result of lust. If you want to stop masturbating, you must address the underlying problem: lustful thoughts and use of pornography. Once you have mastered these issues, masturbation will no longer be a temptation.

Is ejaculation a sin?

One of the most common questions asked by Christians about sex is whether masturbation is a sin. The answer is that it depends on the circumstances.

Masturbation is never explicitly condemned in Scripture. But it is often viewed as sinful when it involves lust, fantasies about non-marital sex, or other types of sexual activity outside of marriage. This is because masturbation is a form of self-gratification, and lust is a sin (Romans 7:23).

The story of Onan, whose semen was spilled on the ground, is sometimes used to prove that masturbation is sinful, but this interpretation is flawed. Onan’s sin was not wasting his semen, but rather his refusal to fulfill his familial obligations. It would have been more appropriate to accuse him of greed.

Those who claim that masturbation isn’t necessarily a sin may use passages like Galatians 5:22, which says, “The fruit of the Spirit is self-control.” However, if we are masturbating with lustful thoughts or looking at pornography, we are violating the command in Galatians 5:22. If we can learn to overcome these temptations, then masturbation might not be a problem for us. But it’s important to know the risks and be careful. If we are not careful, we could develop compulsive masturbation habits that harm our relationships. This is why it is best to abstain until we are sure that we can do it in a godly manner.
