Religious views on masturbation On many occasions church leaders have taught that members should not masturbate as part of obedience to the law of chastity. Kimball, who later served as church president, warned of the “possible damages” and “dangers”  of this “common indescretion”  on various occasions calling it a “reprehensible sin”   that grows “with every exercise”. He gave vigorous exercise as a method to help control thoughts and break the habit of masturbation since it is a “transgression” that is “not pleasing to the Lord”. The manual includes statements that “prophets have condemned [masturbation] as a sin” and “perversion of the body’s passions” that causes one to “become carnal”.

He further stated that even when dating for a time a kiss should be a “clean, decent, sexless one like the kiss between a mother and son”. Necking passionate kissing with intimate touching has been called an “insidious practice”  while petting was called “sinful”  and “an abomination before God”. The oral sex ban, however, was neither removed, modified, or clarified as the only additional directive to leaders was that “if the member has enough anxiety about the propriety of the conduct to ask about it, the best course would be to discontinue it”.
