In Orthodox Judaism the act of extracting semen in vain is, point blank, forbidden in the Midrash (an ancient commentary which is part of the Hebrew Scriptures) and Talmud (the body of the Rabbinic Judaism civil and ceremonial law, it is also traditionally known as Shas). Male masturbation is forbidden because it is seen unnecessary waste of semen and the Talmud likens this close to the act of murder. The act of discharge of semen is the (or one of) gravest sin in the Torah. As far as female masturbation goes it does not prohibit or discourage it. Although if there was something negative to say, some authorities may consider female masturbation to cause “impure thoughts”! The main reason for male masturbation carrying this severity is because it does not involve the release of the seed. Continue reading

Where are the pelvic floor muscles in men?
A good approach for men to help them find their pelvic floor muscle is by, when in mid flow of urination try to stop or slow down the flow, but is not really recommend that men do this particular exercise all the time, as it could interfere with the ‘normal flow’ of passing urine.

If you achieve this the action it should be visible in the mirror. Continue reading
