[[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. 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.
