Self-MASTERY

Masturbation is a topic that is highly sensitive, uncomfortable, and potentially embarrassing/ awkward.  Those things notwithstanding, I feel strongly enough about it that I created a short video to express my thoughts on the matter.  And let me reassure you that it is mature, tactful, and even appropriately and gently witty!

President Henry B. Eyring, or any of the LDS General Authorities, will never view this post.  But Justin Biebz and Jaden Smith remind me to “Never Say Never!”  So readers please know that if any apostle/ prophet/ Stake President/ Bishop/ employer/ long-lost cousin/WHOMEVER (!) ever did stumble (thanks Natasha B!) upon this video , I would not be uncomfortable.  In other words, IT’S CLEAN, YA’LL!  Check it stat:

and just a brief explanation of my outfit…

Recapture:

I don’t like this subject.

I am not a yucky girl.

I believe in agency.

I am fully aware that some will disagree with me.

I never intend to be preachy or judgmental.

But most importantly:

I strongly express that, whatever your religious beliefs/ life philosophies,

avoiding this type of behavior will bless your life!

Be Ye Clean…

Do not do anything else that arouses sexual feelings… in your own body.

Here is a landmark talk by Elder Boyd K. Packer on the matter:

(as it’s title explicates, the address was given for young men only,

but I feel comfortable including it since it is available on LDS.org)

I love how President Packer is not obscene,

but is still very direct and doesn’t hold back

(boldness, but not overbearance…)

To conclude this post, I wish to bear testimony that,

no matter your age, gender, religion, or beliefs

you will be happier if you keep your mind

and body free of this activity!

And ask the Master for help if you need it.

I don’t love it when people watch R-rated movies, but I’ve watched a few in my life.

Back to the original topic as explicated in my title:  I have another great blog post brewin’ about the topic of Mormons /R-rated movies/ Katherine.  But for now, let me just say this:

LDS leaders have long counseled it’s members to be selective about their choice of media.  They have even specifically cautioned to avoid R-rated movies.  However, as always has been and always will be, individual agency is acknowledged and respectedJust be smart, ok?   

(queue less formal voice here:)

But just so you know, I made a deal with Aphrodite.  If any of my readers watch R-rated movies, within 10 days she will strike you with a thunderbolt of blasphemy.  Plus why do you need to watch films anyways?  I know a GREAT blog you can read for entertainment, spiritual nourishment, and ugly pictures of a beautiful girl…

Oh, and one final thought.  After reviewing the video (all good writers review their work), I realized I mentioned I’m not a scientist.  Which I’m not for the most part.  But I still like the song, particularly when Natasha sings it:

Also, I was right about Potassium.
