Intimacy with God is our whole reason for fighting the battle, isn’t it? If it messes up the intimacy, why do it? Besides, even if “clear-minded” masturbation isn’t a sin technically, we still sense a bondage in the whole matter, and God hates bondage in His people. Paul said in 1 Corinthians 6:12 that we must “not be mastered by anything.” On those grounds, all forms of masturbaton seem suspect.

It can be done.
