Please answer each category with three different responses. The first response is,
#1 "Do you have an ethical, moral, or religious reason that this activity is wrong?"
#2 "Do you do it?"
#3 "other comments."

Example: Masturbation, 1, this is not morally wrong. 2, I do it all the time. 3, The youth pastor at my church says that it is a sin, but I don't think he is right.

Just so that I won't have to repeat it in every question: I don't think any of these is wrong or right. It just is. There's nothing wrong or right about masturbating, it's something people do, it's natural, (modern day) morals or religion should have no say in it. Period. That being said, I'll only do "do you do it" and "other comments" answers. :)

Masturbation: I do it and I think everybody does. Even animals.

Group Masturbation: I've done it a few times, mostly on sleepovers. It's fun.

Looking at porn that only includes masturbation: Whatever turns you on man. I mean, yeah, I've watched masturbation porn, some of it is good.

Looking at porn: Same. I look at porn, most people do.

Oral sex: I've received and given. Sometimes it's even better than sex.

Having sex before you are married: I don't intend to get married, I've had sex already, so... yeah, that pretty much sums it up for me.

I think if you want to TRY to live a perfect life (no one can be perfect tho) then you should try to not do these things. I have a friend who doesn't masturbate and hasn't had sex. He does occasionally look at prn and he feels guilty afterwards. He wants to be a catholic priest however. But that's his goal and I respect that. That's not mine. I did all those things except sex at a very young age. I was tempted and had too much fun doing it. I finally fell into sex at age 16 (very late for me) bc I was in love with my gf (still the only person I have had intercourse with).

So I think the entire list is equally "wrong" but equally FUN and equally everything. Imo the only one that can be abstained from for MOST people is sex intercourse. In today's age and that we get married so late in life that's the only one that can legitamally be used to hold off until marriage. And even THAT is very very very very hard.

Well that and group masturbation. idk why that is on the list really. That's sort of a fetish or something. Same with looking at porn about mbating ... porn is porn. It doesn't matter what is's of.

How is abstaining from sexual acts a criterion for a "perfect life"? Don't mean to prejudice, I just don't get it.

shouldn't this be in puberty for all, since it is a survey

"Perfect" as far as the OP's title. remember it's a "MORALITY" survey. Not a "PORN" star survey.

Morality experts, religious experts, and the like would all say that NO body has ever lived a perfect moral/religious life (except Jesus, if you believe he existed, and almost all experts do, and you believe he is the Son of God, which some do). But most or all religious books say to try to live a life without sin you should try to abstain from sex before marriage and not covet sexual desires.

A porn star would say the perfect life would be having hours and hours of hot, awesome sex and getting paid for it and not getting an STD.

But OP is talking about morality here ...

I never said it's a porn star survey, neither did I mention porn stars anyway. I don't know where that came from. My question was chiefly on the moral aspect. I asked how abstaining from sex and masturbation makes somebody morally perfect. I don't think there's such thing as a "morality expert" (lol). Religion, you say. Ok, that'd be a one word answer that could save you all this needless elaboration.

Anyway :)

I said porn star. I know you didn't. I didn't say you did. I picked that term as the opposite of religion.

I chose to elaborate as opposed to writing "religion". I enjoy elaborating. It's a forum, nothing wrong with elaborating. In fact a couple times mods have even warned me for not elaborating enough (apparently you can't just write "what he said" on this forum)

A lot depends on where you get your ideas of what is moral and what is immoral. Religion is one source but certainly not the only one.

Generally, I am not in favour of restricting people's behaviour according to an aritrary set of rules. That includes a person voluntarily restricting his own behaviour and I don't belive there is any such thing as "too much fun". Instead I believe we should consider the effects of our behviour on other people and refrain from doing things that cause other people to suffer.

So when it comes to sexual behaviour, the main thing is consent.

So, with that in mind, solo masturbation is fine - it does not affect anyone else. Group masturbation is fine as long as all who are taking part are doing so willingly and it isn't some initation rite imposed on them.

Sex when not married is fine. In my view it is more fulfilling to have sex with someone you love rather than some random who will put out and that has guided my own choices. Getting a girl pregnant when you are not in a stable long term relationship that is able to take care of the resulting baby is not ok because that causes suffering, either emotional suffering if she should choose an abortion, or suffering to the child is who is brought up in less than ideal circumstances and maybe still to the mother who has to sacrifice her previous plans.

On the question of porn, the biblical angle of lust being a sin is part of a wider theme which runs throughout the bible which is that adultery is wrong and, again, that is something that causes suffering. In biblical times puberty was later and marriage earlier so "lusing after a woman who was not your wife" would almost certain occur in the context of both the person lusting and the one being lusted after being married. Times have changed and we now have quite a long period between becoming sexually mature and settling down with someone. If you're not compomising a relationship, which again would cause suffering, then getting turned on by porn is fine.

As stated above none of these are hugely morally wrong as they bring no harm to others at all and are purely there for your own pleasure. As long as the person themself is ok with it, there is no real issue that arises.

I think people's personal morals are developed from things like how you are raised religious beliefs and social/cultural norms. And I can see how some people would take issue with some of there topics. But I don't. All these topics are normal human behavior, ind I believe are good and healthy things to do. Even premaritial sex, don't believe it's morally wrong. I've all these things, and feel good. So I don't see how it could be wrong. So long as all participants are willing participants

1. As a Christian, I think that all of these are morally wrong.
2. I masturbate sometimes, but I don't think that it's a good staff.

I am a born again, church involved Christian and can only answer for myself as to whether something is right or wrong.
Masturbation: I have no problem and have been doing it for years
Group Masturbation: not my thing but no problem
Looking at porn: only occasionally when younger and now almost never. just not my thing
Oral sex: this I do enjoy, so no problem
Having sex before you are married: I don't/won't "sleep around" but I have had intercourse with one person and we were in a committed relationship. It was an expression of our mutual commitment. For me that is what a marriage should be, so no problem.

Masturbation: [1.] I don't see anything wrong with it :3 [2.] I do it, yeah. [3.] No other comments.

Group Masturbation: [1.] Nothing wrong with it. [2.] Never done it, nah. [3.] No comments.

Looking at porn: [1.] People say that this dulls our real-life sexual experiences, but I don't believe this. I think porn is fine to watch, but there is a point where one's sexual fantasies overtake their real life. [2.] I watch porn every time I jerk off. [3.] No comments.

Oral Sex: [1.] It's fine. [2.] Never done it. [3.] No comments.

Sex before marriage: [1.] As long as the woman doesn't become pregnant, I think it's fine. [2.] I've never had sex before. I'm only 15 :3. [3.] No comments.

Please answer each category with three different responses.

Masturbation:1- It's natural, I have no compunction.

Group Masturbation:1 If you are having fun and with bonding with people, then more power to you. I haven't done it as of yet.

Looking at porn that only includes masturbation:2 It's basically 90% of what I watch. I prefer it to couples, I find them less relatable, even though I have a potential partner in my life.

Looking at porn:2 I do. Everyone will at some point, accidentally or on purpose, sexually or just out of curiosity.

Oral sex:1 Just another way to show affection, especially if you are giving it, it shows that you can put someone else's pleasure before you own.

Having sex before you are married:1 Just be careful with your partner, and people can enjoy a consensual experience that is totally natural.

ALL OF THIS is only if you choose partner(s) carefully. Anything, no matter how well planned out can go wrong it you aren't prudent and take proper measures.

just to keep it short no i don't think that there is anything wrong with doing the things that are listed and I've done all of it at one point or another. These are all just parts of life and as long as you are mindful and careful doing this stuff then there is no problem with doing them
