IS MASTURBATION A MORTAL SIN.?
:confused:


#2

It is immoral and constitutes grave matter.

So if it is committed with full knowledge of its immorality and with complete consent, then it is a mortal sin.

However, if the masturbating person EITHER does not know that it is gravely immoral OR does not completely consent to the act OR both, it is not a mortal sin, but may be a venial sin.

Hope this helps.
