* It may have been unintentional, but Nina Einstein's storyline from ''CodeGeass'' has echoes of this trope. Early in the first season, she's shown masturbating to a picture of [[spoiler: Princess Euphemia]] [[CargoShip using the edge of a table]]. Then [[spoiler: Euphemia dies]], starting Nina on a downward spiral in which she [[spoiler: threatens to blow up her school, pushes away her old friends, is manipulated into creating a FantasticNuke that kills 40 million people,]] and [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking makes some truly grotesque facial expressions]]. While Nina's masturbation isn't stated to have caused her SanitySlippage, it helped characterize her as a PsychoLesbian, as well as one of CG's many [[TheScrappy Scrappies]].

* In the ''WesternAnimation/MoralOrel'' episode "God's Chef" Orel is told that masturbation is one of the worst sins he could commit, since he's wasting his sperm. This leads to the plot of the episode, in which Orel concludes the only way to masturbate and still go to heaven is to become God's chef. [[spoiler: He ends up impregnating the entire neighborhood with a pastry bag filled with his sperm.]]

* In ''PoliceAcademy 2'', the disgruntled prankster recruit Mahoney swaps the overbearing [[DrillSergeantNasty man in charge of recruit training]]'s shampoo with fast-curing helmet repair epoxy. This has the desired effect of Supergluing the victim's hands to his head. When he finally manages to get his hands free, they are naturally covered with hair. When he asks a group of recruits if anyone can explain how this happened, Mahoney replies, "I can, sir. And if you don't stop, you'll go blind."

Added DiffLines:

* The early-Victorian BoardingSchool novel ''Eric, or Little by Little'', has a notorious passage warning boys in hysterical terms against masturbation, referred to obscurely as "Kibroth-Hattaavah", a place from the Book of Numbers in the Bible which translates from Hebrew as "grave of lust" (although the "lust" punished by God in the biblical story was actually lust for food, or gluttony, rather than sexual lust).

[[ADateWithRosiePalms Masturbation]] portrayed as being bad for you, possibly making you go blind[[note]]There is some slight truth to this, as both ocular humor and ejaculate contain zinc, thus chronic masturbation could, in extreme cases, lead to a zinc deficiency that could harm the eyes. Nobody's known to have actually gone blind from it, though.[[/note]], go deaf, or grow hair on your palms.

Nobody's known to have actually gone blind from it, though. Alternative "scientific" explanation: Semen contains hyalorunidase, and eyeballs are made from hyalorunic acid. Sounds unhealthy when colliding. [[/note]], go deaf, or grow hair on your palms.

* In Literature/TheBible, Onan (in Genesis 38) was told to--in accordance with the duty of levirate marriage--have a child with Tamar, [[RomancingTheWidow the wife of his dead brother Er]]. He didn't want to give her a child that would not be considered truly his, so he practiced coitus interruptus (apparently without telling Tamar what he was planning). God was displeased and struck Onan down. While ostensibly only about Onan's refusal to get Tamar pregnant, traditionally this story has been interpreted about coitus interruptus in general and masturbation by extension.
** For what it's worth, one Jewish tradition, cited by Rashi, attributes Er's death to punishment for coitus interruptus as well (in this case, because he didn't want Tamar to get pregnant and lose her beauty).



* However, the story as actually written in Literature/TheBible doesn't have a "masturbation is evil" moral: Onan (in Genesis 38) was told to - in accordance with the duty of a brother-in-law as per the rules of the time/place - have a child with Tamar, [[RomancingTheWidow the wife of his dead brother Er]]. He didn't want to give her a child that would not be considered truly his so (we'll ''try'' to make this as un-graphic as possible while preserving the meaning, which isn't easy) he had sex with her, pulled out, and 'spilled the seed' instead. God was displeased and struck Onan down. It seems pretty clear what God had a problem with - and Onan's intent was ''explicitly spelled out,'' even.
