Hi Danny - I had a prostate infection a few years back. It came on like the flu, but when my fever was 103 I thought best to see a doctor.  Strong antibiotics helped, but I was out of work for over a week.

Scott, I thought about that question of celebate and masterbation when I was single. I don't have an answer, but when I decided to concentrate on my relationship with Christ only, after a brief period, I found my soul mate. She was right in front of me all the time. We married 13 days before my 30th birthday.

During that time of seeking Christ, I tried to stop masterbating. You're not going to believe this next story. After about 10 days of struggling and abstaining, I had a day that I will never forget. That morning about thirty minutes before my alarm I had 2 or 3 wet dreams. At lunch time, since I worked close to my apartment, I went home for lunch as usual. My father had taught me how to power nap to help avoid the drowsiness in the afternoons. During my power nap on the couch, I had 5 wet dreams. Mind you, I never touched myself. That night as I was falling to sleep, you know that time that you dream but aren't quite asleep; I had the remainer of my 10 wet dreams in one day!

Recently I heard a radio broadcast with Dr. James Dobson on Focus on the Family. He discussed masterbation. He spoke about what his preacher father told him and what he told his son, Ryan. God never talked about masterbation in His Word, and he believe it was for this reason. With men it is going to happen. The guilt that follows has interferred with most men's relationship with Christ and others. God did not want us to be burdened with that guilt whn He had created that desire for the purpose of procreation. So we shouldn't beat ourselves up over it. Abstain when you can, but don't let the devil bind you with guilt. Let the guilt go.

Part of this topic is discussed in the group Testosterone in relation to marriage. Those comments have merit also. But you have to keep your prostate healthy.

Hello, have rather an unsual question. I have been thinking of becoming completely celebate, including masterbation, will this have an effect on my health?
