One of the most difficult sins to overcome at this point in my life is maturbation. In particular, when I need to shave my pubic area.
I thought this would be the one time when I could shave without masturbating afterwards. I was able to trim, apply shaving cream, shave, while watching what I was doing in the mirror – all without masturbating. I thought I was good. I made minimal contact with my genitals.
Then came the moisturizer.
I need to moisturize my skin after I shave or else I get horrible post-shave irritation/ance. I used coconut oil. Sure enough, I fell again. It doesn’t even matter that I didn’t orgasm. I fell through and I failed once more.
Can anyone offer me some advice or comfort. I’m not yet confirmed, and cannot recieve Communion or Confession.
