Do you think its weird how religions are against masturbation despite that it gives vitality and feels good and releaving?
I would focus more on. Inproper behavior or maybe if you are being too stupid, and instead of reading and challenge yourself, you masturbate too much? Like i can get criticism on that. But not to just get off to something and continue the day
If you are happy, good to people. Then i see it as weird to why the reward is? Dont masturbate and be rude to people. Some people have either low or high sex drive. But thats just my logic

Not in the least. God doesnt give us genitals to sit around and play with ourselves. Abuse of equipment.
Sex is intended to be both an expression of love for your spouse, and a beautiful means of procreation.
Sex is so special, powerful, and valuable that it is properly used only within marriage. If you’re not married, you should abstain from sexual activity.
Sex is the ultimate gift husbands and wives can give: a total gift of self, body and soul. Sex is how you fulfill your wedding vows to love totally, freely, and completely. As long as you both shall live. The secret of life is hidden in that intimate sharing.
Focused on yourself
A withholding from your spouse
A statement that sex is only about pleasure — your own pleasure
Often accompanied by “adultery in your heart” through pornography and fantasy
It denies the meaning of sex. It makes you less than fully human.
“But everyone else says masturbation is healthy!”
Yes, they do.
The world has a way of saying that a lot of disordered things are “good”.
Masturbation is radically self-centered, and radically un-Christian. It turns us and our sexuality away from God and toward ourselves by:
Training our sexuality in the habit of self-indulgence, not self-giving
Divorcing the pleasure of orgasm from union with the “other”, your spouse
Turning away from the risks of loving another
Refusing fertility & the full responsibility of sex
I know — many educators and health professionals seem to be having a love affair with self-centered, self-indulgent sexuality. Why that is, I don’t know.
They’re wrong. They’re not telling you the truth about sex, about yourself, or about life.
You and your sexuality are worth more than you can imagine.
The deep truth on masturbation is confirmed by the enormous damage this so-called “private” act causes in people’s lives and marriages. Large numbers of men and women are starting to name their habit of masturbation for what it is: sexual addiction.
If we tell our teens that masturbation is normal and healthy, we’re setting them up with a habit that can yield a lifetime of difficulty. We’re telling them that self-indulgence and lack of self-control are positive things. This cannot form a strong foundation for mature, loving sexuality.
How is that either loving or healthy?
We need to allow Christ to redeem our self-centered, disordered desires.
It’s a matter of bringing our disorders to Christ, naming them for what they are, and letting Christ heal us. We experience that healing as the gradual increase of self-control.
There definitely are some biblical principles that can be applied to the issue:
(1) “So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God” (1 Corinthians 10:31). If we cannot give God glory for something, we should not do it.
(2) “Everything that does not come from faith is sin” (Romans 14:23). If we are not fully convinced that an activity is honoring to God, it is a sin.
(3) “Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore, honor God with your body” (1 Corinthians 6:19–20). Our bodies have been redeemed and belong to God.
(4) “The fruit of the Spirit is . . . self-control” (Galatians 5:22–23). Masturbation is almost always a sign of a lack of self-control.
These great truths should have a powerful impact on what we do with our bodies. In light of these principles, we may conclude that masturbation is always sinful.

The religious are obsessed about any kind of sex.
What better way to control someone?
Oddly enough, they don't seem to have the same opinion against pedophiles.

A friend from a very strict religion informed me that our relatives could see us doing this from their place in the afterlife. Not sure if they would be forced to watch this as I am pretty sure not many of mine would want to watch this occurrence.Source(s): An old training shoe fitted with wheels and a rear spoiler makes an ideal dragster racer for hamsters.

Masturbation is never called a sin in the Bible (Onan in Genesis wasn't masturbating). As for things that are sins, all sins past and future are forgiven by the person believing in the Lord Jesus Christ. Death leads to immediate heaven or hell, and it is too late to be saved, after death. To be in heaven and not hell, believe in the Lord Jesus Christ, who is God and who died on the cross and shed His blood to pay for all of our sins in full, and who was buried, and who resurrected from the dead. The only way to avoid hell is by believing in the Lord Jesus Christ, without adding any of your own works. See Romans 4:5, 1 Corinthians 15:3-4, and John 3:16.

It's an archaic and unreasonable expectation and those who follow it are as silly as the rule.
