About This Episode
Welcome back to another episode of the Panic Button Podcast. This week, I’ve got another question about masturbation.
So today’s question is: “Can masturbation help my marriage?”
We’re taking the whole month to talk about masturbation because everywhere I go, people want to justify what they want to do, and they’ll ask every question possible until they hear that masturbation might be helpful…
Then they’ll take that answer out of context, and run with it.
Can masturbation actually help your marriage? You sitting here on the toilet while she’s sleeping? I don’t know how that’s gonna help you. If you’re thinking about her, then go talk to her and do something with her.
Does masturbation help your marriage? I don’t think so. I think – ultimately – it’s just going to keep you apart rather than keeping you connected.
What’s going to help your marriage? Communication.
Building a closeness between you and your spouse on a physical, spiritual, and emotional level.
If you’re struggling with these types of issues but don’t have anyone to talk to, check out our Small Groups Online program. We have around 80 groups of men or women who meet online to have these conversations with folks going through the same things you are.
