Saudi psychologist says masturbation is a human need goes viral
A video of Saudi psychologist Dr. Tariq Al Habib saying that masturbation is a basic human need has gone completely viral on Saudi Twitter. While he did mention that it's considered haram unacceptable in Islam, except for when a person resorts to it in a bid to avoid committing adultery or sin, he also called on Islamic scholars to re-consider the matter. When we say 'dire need' here, we're talking about preventing oneself from committing sin. However, I say to our Muslim scholars, if a person won't be committing a sin, but will be suffering from stress or anxiety if they don't vent out and release this energy from their bodies, wouldn't the habit be considered a dire need then? Al Habib's comments shocked the show's presenter who responded saying:.
We all have done it, as adolescents and as adults, men and women, and some still do it despite the elder age. The point is that everyone with a few exceptions have done it, at least once in their life, since puberty begun. I perfectly remember my first time: it was between the furry little hands of a brown plush; an adventure companion, in the previous months, that I had to burn that very evening. Jokes aside, at the time I firmly believed that masturbation was forbidden and considered a sinful act, which was the reason for using the plush instead of my hands.
