Most IVF Clinics all over the world provide pornography for men who are asked to produce semen on demand by masturbating either from home or in the clinic rooms. The question here is, to do or not to do? Why use masturbation which teaches men addiction to this vice as I call it and even destroys the dignity of women?
What is pornography? According to Wikipedia, Pornography is the explicit portrayal of sexual subject matter for the purpose of sexual arousal. Pornography may use a variety of media, including books, magazines, postcards, photos, sculpture, drawing, painting, animation, video etc
A lot of people say pornography was not mentioned in the bible, this is true, but sexual immoraility of all sorts is prohibited and all these can be found in pornography. Now, how does a man trying to achieve pregnancy via IVF masturbate? Masturbation is the sexual stimulation of one’s own genitals, usually to the point of orgasm or in this case ejaculation(Wikipedia). The Clinic says watch Porn movies which stimulates him to ejaculate, how? By stimulating a form of mental impurity, you covet what you see, naked women, you want to do what they do, lust and you therefore self please, in doing these you have done the following….covetousness, lust, sexual impurity etc
Is there any advantage I see in masturbation for IVF? Well, I read up extensively and I was told scientifically that when you watch porn and you are excited, your ejaculate is more, and you produce a higher amount of motile sperm! A study performed by Yamamoto and colleagues in 2000 studied 19 men masturbating into a jar, either alone in a room, or with “sexually stimulating videotaped visual images” at hand. Sperm volume, total sperm count, sperm motility, and percentage of morphologically normal sperm were all higher when the men had pornography.

My question is this, should pornography be allowed continued use in hospitals for its ‘greater good’ of helping the childless get children via the science of IVF? If IVF Clinics are buying this, is this not the promotion of such and thus putting more money in the pockets of those that make these movies? Is Pornography a good invention of God or a vice of the devil to twist the good thing God has brought into marriage which is sex in marriage in all its purity that turns it into all those things I mentioned above-lust, adultery, rape and all kinds of pervesions?
What are the related scripture on this subject? I found quite a number, of which I have chosen a few to share here:
Matthew 5: 28 -But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart.
1 Corinthians 6: 18 – 20 – Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body. Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.
Psalm 119: 37 – Turn my eyes from looking at worthless things; and give me life in your ways.
1 Corinthians 10:13 – No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it
1 John 2: 16 – For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride in possessions—is not from the Father but is from the world.
Ephesians 6:11-17 – Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace.
1 Corinthinas 6:18 – Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body.
Hebrews 13:4 – Let marriage be held in honor among all, and let the marriage bed be undefiled, for God will judge the sexually immoral and adulterous.
Galatians 5:19 – Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality,
Romans 12:1-9 – I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. For by the grace given to me I say to everyone among you not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think with sober judgment, each according to the measure of faith that God has assigned. For as in one body we have many members, and the members do not all have the same function, so we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members one of another.
Romans 13:13-14 – Let us walk properly as in the daytime, not in orgies and drunkenness, not in sexual immorality and sensuality, not in quarreling and jealousy. But put on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make no provision for the flesh, to gratify its desires.
I know there are so many others, but this is absolutely my favourite that caps it all up Philippians 4:8 – Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.
Allow me to say Nuff Said! LoL What is your take on this?
