How was masturbation seen in pre-christian times?
I think desert Jews were the first one to get a big bug up their butt about it (which seems only fair since they had a bug up their butt about every little thing). Eastern religions are either ambivalent about snake charming or look down on it because it's a waste of energy and/or generally incompatible with ascetic lifestyle. Sumerians, Greeks and Romans certainly didn't give a fuck.
>>15164460I don't understand the appeal of it. Why not have sex with your gf instead?

>>15164572Your gf might be shit at sex while a crafty wank will always at least be pretty good.
>>15164572if you had ever actually had a sex life, you would know that masturbation is a normal part of it.
>>15164572Nobody who's had a girlfriend would say such a stupid thing.
>>15164598This post makes me sad>>15164599The last time I was having regular sex I almost completely stopped masturbating
>>15164605wow your sex must have been pretty boring. no wonder your girlfriend left you.
>>15164605So you didn't stop, got it.
>>15164610I unironically don't get it. You fap more when you have a gf? Sex is better when you aren't jerking off all the time. Socrates says it somewhere and he's very obviously right judging by experience.
>>15164627>You fap more when you have a gf?yes, having sex increased my libido. sex was so good I couldn't wait to plow my gf again>Sex is better when you aren't jerking off all the time.lmao no. masturbation is an excercise on imagination, then when you're having sex you can put that on practice.
>>15164643>sex was so good I couldn't wait to plow my gf againOh I see. So whenever you weren't having sex you fapped to the memories?Now that i haven't had sex in years i do that to try to keep from watching porn
>>15164667When we couldn't have sex and I was horny, of course. Sometimes right after sex when she was tired, sleeping, just looking at her naked body.
>>15164643Carnal "people" aren't people. Your whole post proves Plato right that celibacy-continence is the only way to live. You're nothing but a pathetic insect compared to someone who isn't a slave to their corrupt inclinations. A sow wallowing in mire. Never going to make it.
>>15164691Based Plátōn. Coombrains will say anything to defend their monkey behavior of chasing orgasms
>>15164627>You fap more when you have a gf?of course not. you do it together.
you did not made this thread to discuss books
>>15164691You will never be as divine as him no matter how much you prevent yourself from feeling pleasure like the cuck you are.
>>15164713Reminder Platon invented the insult Malaka which is ancient greek for soft brain and remains a word to this day that is synonymous with wanker. So based Platon literally invented the insult cumbrain.
>>15164734Imagine praising a pedo LMFAO
>>15164683>Jerking off in bed with sleeping gfThis is weird anon
>>15164745A pedo was praised and remembered by generations while you'll be forgotten by your parents and everyone on this board.
>>15164776ooooooooo spooky man, it's not like the entire human species shall be forgotten within a millennia
>>15164749of course it isn't. although it's more fun when the girl is awake, and watching you.
>>15164739Holy....baseddd Platon Aristocles (PBUH)
>>15164572I dont have a gf
