Evangelical 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 Major writes (link no longer active):

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According to an article written by Major titled Vibrators, Dildos, and Sex Demons: (link no longer active)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

This post was originally written in 2016. Since then, Major has written a book titled Sex Magic: Flirting With the Demonic. Here’s how Major describes his book on Amazon:

Believers are opening portals through playing around with dangerous sexual practices and occult ideas that contradict the direct authority of scripture.

Many are being initiated directly into the occult through something called sex magic; and most don’t even know it.

Are you helping to create the Antichrist, and don’t know it? More specifically: are your sexual practices providing the vessel that Satan needs to usher in the era of The Beast 666?

If you’ve been engaging in masturbation, fornication, watching porn, adultery, homosexual relations, BDSM, cross-dressing, LGBTQ relations of any kind, spouse swapping, orgies, toy parties, had an abortion: you’ve been engaged in some form of sex magic; and whether you know it or not you’ve been having open fellowship with actual demonic entities.

Why do you think sex occupies your mind 24/7, or why you can’t stop watching porn or masturbating? Why is your mind constantly bombarded with unclean thoughts; and in spite of how much sex you have it’s never enough? Perhaps you can’t even enjoy sex anymore without the help of some form of visual aid or a sex toy. Those are not necessarily your thoughts.

Other symptoms of being involved in sex magic are even more pronounced.

Your life is overrun with constant misfortune. Relationships that start off well crumble. Golden opportunities seem to turn into dirt. Opportunities to advance in life slip right through your hands and you end up going nowhere, remaining stuck in constant frustration while living in increased desperation. Nothing that should go right is ever sustained, and instead things end up going wrong.

If this is your situation, you’re not crazy and you’re not cursed. You’ve just opened a sex portal; and now your life is being blockaded by evil spirits that are intent on destroying you in every way. In order to break free and get your life back, you must know how those portals got opened. And most of all you need to learn the methods and techniques for closing those doors forever.

    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

      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.

    I am healed, Bruce! I have seen the light and will proceed to eliminate all the darkness from my life. Praise! Who wants to have a sex toy burning party?

    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.

      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.”

        What nonsense. Two points

        Trying to put psychological barriers in place to prevent behaviour that is instinctively natural, and entirely harmless, causes mental issues. Young men who are brought up in a culture of religious repression carry the burdens of this type of guilt induction into later life. In fact, most never completely lose it. I’m sure the same applies to women.
        What right does an evangelical preacher have commenting on the entirely benign behaviour of others when his own house is in such disorder? I have no idea as to whether he’s a molester himself, probably not, but his colleagues have turned child abuse into a cottage industry.

    “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.

    Bruce–God killed Onan because he “spilled it on the ground.” Was angry at Onan for not impregnating the wife of his brother (who, by the way, was also slain by God)? Or was he upset that Onan made such a mess?

    By the way, I howled with laughter at the graphic. As a result of my surgery, I got a “doorbell.” But, as far as I can tell, it hasn’t been “rung” by Satan any more than God’s “voice” rung through my head when I was a believer.

    “Sex magic”.
    I’d have a hard time believing this guy is sincere, except that when I was still attending church, I met a lot of guys just like him.
    I’m sure it never occurred to him that all those irresistible feelings are NORMAL.
    And if one believes s/he was created by god, then wouldn’t it be wrong to ignore what we were designed for?
    Sex magic indeed.

    Hmm 8 out of 12. I must have a lot of demons. Do multiple occurrences of these categories mean more demons? If so I need to change my name to Legion. At least I will never be lonely.

    I wonder, are the people he writes about actually obsessed with sex 24/7 or are they just obsessed with sin 24/7.

    A big tell here.

    “Why do you think sex occupies your mind 24/7, or why you can’t stop watching porn or masturbating? Why is your mind constantly bombarded with unclean thoughts; and in spite of how much sex you have it’s never enough?”

    Actually sex isn’t that much of an issue for me, probably because I masturbate! Once it’s over I’m done with it for a while and go on to other things. It’s not an obsession the way it is with evangelicals. Sexual expression is one part of my life, but there are many other parts. Mack is likely talking about himself here and thinks everyone else is just like him.
