Ive heard somewhere that buddhist people cannot masterbate is this statement true?
I hang out with a lot of Asian chicks at college, some of them are pretty hardcore Buddhist and get really involved with in the local community. it's cool.
To answer your question: I don't think it'd wrong for Buddhists to masterbate or have sex before marriage... the ones I know endearingly call themselves closet freaks lol... and I know them to be some of the most... sensual partners out there.
They had to learn somewhere
In reply to:
In the Buddhist tradition, under the Five Precepts and the Eightfold Path, one should neither be attached to nor crave sensual pleasure. Masturbation is therefore neither forbidden nor encouraged
Pinatas promote violence against flamboyant animals.
