Is it a sin to get aroused when you're having a bath?


#1

Hi, what happened today is that I had a bath and I was already a little aroused when I woke up. I took a bath and when I had to clean my private parts I knew that would get me aroused even more but I had to clean them. It happened like that. No sexual thoughts took place and I was singing the Gloria through the process. Was this even a sin?
I worry about these things because I heard that every sexual sin is a grave one so I tend to be scrupulous whenever I get aroused.

nope, not a sin. normal bodily function. good for you for ignoring it, that’s a battle i lost for 50 years.

Thanks for replying, I used to be adicted to masturbation so I am “trained”, I haven’t done it in months now and I used to do it almost every day last year.

Amen!! God bless you and strengthen you too!!


#6

thank you brother!:thumbsup:


#7

You’re welcome! Have a nice day!


#8

Shoot! I think what I actually felt was sexual plesure, does it change anything??


#9

nope. you can actually feel sexual pleasure without any motivation of your own. you didn’t encourage it, that’s where the near occasion of sin begins.


#10

Now is when scruples begin! I am now wondering if I actually wanted it to happen or not, if I was just trying to trick myself to do it. I’m a freaking mess.


#11

best way to rid yourself of scruples is confession. the priest will help you, and you’ll feel complete relief.


#12

I’ll follow your advice, I confessed yesterday, I wasn’t hoping to do it again soon.


#13

i don’t blame you, but if these things keep nagging at you, only a priest can give you counsel and comfort.
