    This topic is still a big debate and no clear views of Hinduism have been justified when it comes to Masturbation.

    Some Hindus completely ridicule the fact that Masturbation is considered as a sin in Hinduism while some strongly believe that according the Hindu scriptures, for instance the "Brihad Aranyak Upanishad" condemn mastrubation and forbid the same for unmarried bachelors. This Upanishad tries to explain that the sperm, cerebral fluid and bone marrow are made up of elements of blood and should not be wasted by mere practises like masturbation.

    In fact on the contrary, the Kama Sutra, talks about Masturbation in great detail and also expresses ways to achieve it.

    Well, it is certainly an adult question but discussion of views on Hinduism on this topic is necessary as it should be clear and people should not think that their religion prohibits any such act which is more of a personal thing than anything else.

    As per Brhad Aranyaka Upanishad it is said that the semen is very important just like a brain fluid and its more important then importance of bone marrow inside the bones.
    Masturbation is sheerly wastage of the semen.

    Semens are considered to be the power of a man(in women, it is called as "Raja").

    No , I strongly believe that it is not allowed in Hinduism. We basically go for Brahamcharya not these stuff.
