57_Is It OK to Masturbate Over My Partner?

In this episode, Simon and Madeleine team up again to discuss whether it would be OK for a young man to use his girlfriend as the stimulus for an act of masturbation. On the surface, this may seem like a more loving way to deal with strong sexual passions. However, Simon and Madeleine share that masturbation is an intrinsically disordered sexual act and that using the person you are dating is actually more harmful to you and them than using someone else. If this comes as a surprise, take a listen and see why we believe this to be true!
