“Mentally deranged people are notorious masturbators” and other Jehovah’s Witness quotes about masturbation.

Jehovah’s Witnesses are for some reason extremely obsessed with masturbation and homosexuals. So much so that they have published dozens of statements that masturbation and homosexuality are linked. In some articles, Jehovah’s Witnesses teach that masturbation leads to homosexuality.

Jehovah’s Witnesses also link masturbation with mental illness, by stating that “mentally deranged people are notorious masturbators” and that “mentally disturbed priests and nuns are chronic masturbators”.

In this article, I look at some of the most blatant quotes and videos published by Jehovah’s Witnesses that awkwardly discuss the extremely personal matter of masturbation and homosexuality.

the masturbator pays a mental penalty. The habitual practice cripples his social and emotional development, hinders his attaining a healthful outlook and attitude toward the other sex and toward people in general. It can ‘turn the person inward’ upon himself, making him introverted. Or it can, and frequently does, lead into homosexuality, in which the person, not satisfied with his lonely sexual activity, seeks a partner for mutual sex play.”

Weakly giving in to sexual desires by masturbation will certainly not give you strength when faced with a situation tempting you to commit fornication​—or even homosexuality… In fact, masturbation can lead into homosexuality. In such instances the person, not satisfied with his lonely sexual activity, seeks a partner for mutual sex play.”
