Mack Major Warns Christian Women About the Sin of Masturbation

sin of masturbation

According to Evangelical author Mack Major, Christian women are masturbating themselves straight to hell. Major writes:

Too many Christian women are losing their salvation because they masturbate. Dildos and all of those other sex toys have been used for thousands of years in demonic sex rituals. It’s one of the main ways ancient pagan societies worshiped their demonic gods. Masturbation is a direct path to Satan. There’s nothing normal about it. And shame on any Christian that says so.

According to an article written by Major titled Vibrators, Dildos, and Sex Demons: (link no longer active)

Many of you who are reading this have sex toys in your possession right now. And whether you want to accept it as fact or not: those sex toys are an open portal between the demonic realm and your own life. As long as you have those sex toys in your home, you have a doorway that can allow demons to not only access your life at will, but also to torment you, hinder and destroy certain parts of your life as it relates to sex and your relationships.

Huffington Post writer Ed Mazza notes that Major spends a good bit of space on his website talking about sex and masturbation. Major warns Christian readers that there are sex demons that can take control of them:

There are such things as sex demons. And the danger in masturbating is that one could inadvertently summon a sex demon to attach itself to you through the act of masturbating. And once that demon attaches, it is difficult to get it to leave. It will drive you to masturbate, even when you don’t want to. You’ll be hit with urges to play with yourself so powerful that only an orgasm will allow you some temporary relief.

The next time you are masturbating, just remember you could be summoning a sex demon! I found myself laughing as a read Major’s words. Really? Does anyone buy the bullshit that Major is shoveling? Sadly, yes. There are Evangelicals who think the sin of Onanism is a grievous act of willful disobedience to the teachings of the Bible (even though there are no actual verses that address masturbation or call it a sin). I have read more than a few articles by members of the Evangelical Purity Police® that suggest masturbation is a sin because it requires lust to get the sexual juices flowing. While this line of thinking might work with those still ensconced squarely upon Evangelical sexual prohibitions, for those of us who would love to be taken over by a sex demon, appeals to lust fall on deaf ears. Lust, along with most of the “sins” Evangelicals obsess over, is a religious construct. What Evangelicals call lust, unbelievers call desire — normal, healthy, erotic feelings of sexual need and fulfillment. Visual images can and do enhance sexual relationships, and when one is left to fornicate with his or her hand, well…visual stimulation is appreciated.

As is often the case, Major focuses on the sexual proclivities of women. What men like Major fear is that dildos, vibrators, and index fingers remove women’s need for men. While women may or may not find masturbation as fulfilling as intercourse or oral sex (I am not a woman so I cannot speak authoritatively on the subject), I am sure when needed it gets the job done. I know that is how it works for men, having been an expert masturbator since the age of thirteen. Despite warnings that choking my chicken (see 500 Masturbating Euphemisms) will lead to blindness, God’s judgment, and hell, I have found it to be a necessary part of what it means to be human. I often chuckle as I think of the days when it was my turn to clean the showers at the Midwestern Baptist College men’s dormitory. I can only imagine how much sinning went on behind closed shower doors – sinning that the men who are now pastors once performed with gusto. Imagine how shocked Independent Fundamentalist Baptist (IFB) teenagers and adults would be if their pastors put their stamps of approval on self-pleasuring.

I have long believed that men like Mack Major who rage against sex — in all forms but monogamous married heterosexual intercourse — have dark, deep, locked closets filled with what Evangelicals call the sins of the flesh. Those who scream the loudest against this or that sin often practice those very sinful behaviors behind closed doors. The fact that Evangelical churches have a porn epidemic on their hands is a reminder that Evangelicals are every bit as human as the unwashed, uncircumcised, masturbating, dick-sucking Philistines of the world. The only difference is that we Philistines sin with gusto, waking up in the morning without a guilt hangover. All praise be to dildos, vibrators, and sex demons.

    Sex is one of the biggest enemies of religion, isn’t it? It would be interesting to find out if the religions that encorporated sex as something postive, or even a holy or sacred act, fared better than the ones that didn’t.

    My mom warned me that if I kept doing that I would go blind. So I asked her if I could do it until I at least need glasses.

    Been wearing glasses for the last 6 years ?

    Bruce, I reposted this at NLQ and we’ve managed to get some fundy to try to explain to us in the comments how Mack is right. I’m dying laughing over the comments. His screen name is just making me laugh harder. GQRugged – bet he is a pencil-necked geek that looks nothing like a guy in GQ. He’s bound for Jerks4Jesus.com

      Bruce,

      This comment from your Portuguese hood-rat friend Suzanne Calulu is hilarious, she´s probably and overweight Female who has a treasure chest full of dildos, vibrators, and Female sex toys, who lost it after my 1st comment on Macks Article.

      I actually laughed at all the bullshit she wrote about me contradicting herself all over the place. On Majors website “edendecoded” he talks about Men struggling with Masturbation so that´s why I was touching on the subject as a WHOLE,

      Maybe that´s why she was in the Hospital, all that pent up energy, anger, and bitterness finally got to her, maybe she needs to take heed to that “bullshit recovery “site she is so FOND of, 1 of the most boring websites I´ve seen in my life-but I digress

      Let me ask you as question Bruce

      So you were a “pastor” for 25 years and then all of a sudden you realize you are an atheist? Shouldn´t you of realized that well before 25 years? What really made you change your beliefs?

        This will be the only comment I approve, so I hope you said everything you intended to say.

        The real reason I left Christianity? I am a transvestite and I got tired of having to hide my true self. Now you know the “rest” of the story.

    Bruce,
    have you checked out Mack’s Facebook page? It’s all self-promotion. He’s a rude, nasty, sex-obsessed, misogynistic, self-promoting prosperity gospel preacher that’s preying on insecure, single women (especially). The nastiness doesn’t stop there. He even blames the poor for being poor.
    Disgusting.

      Hi Guest at NLQ,

      ” He even blames the poor for being poor.” Apparently he has written a book with the absurd title, “Jesus the millionaire.”

      shalom,

    “Don’t hate! Masturbate!” I forgot where I heard that from but it’s a wonderful quote! I bet masturbation would take care of a lot of pent up sexual tension for those prudes.

    Onanism is not the sin of masturbation. Onan refused to give his sister in law a baby for his brother’s posterity. The phrase that I heard in the IFB cult that referenced masturbation was “lovers of selves”. I may have this wrong tho, and will not be offended if I am corrected in a respectful manner.

      Here’s the relevent text:

      And Judah said unto Onan, Go in unto thy brother’s wife, and marry her, and raise up seed to thy brother. And Onan knew that the seed should not be his; and it came to pass, when he went in unto his brother’s wife, that he spilled it on the ground, lest that he should give seed to his brother. And the thing which he did displeased the Lord: wherefore he slew him also. Genesis 38:8-10

      It is likely Onan withdrew before ejaculating. Perhaps Onan was Catholic. 🙂 Either way, God killed him for his sin.
