All this said and done, we will now give the general ruling for masturbation (the stimulation of the genitals in
order to reach ejaculation/orgasm through other than vaginal or anal intercourse):
a) Assisted masturbation (masturbation in which two people are involved) is permissible if done
with one's marital spouse (e.g., oral sex, hand-stroking, placing the genitals on the other person's
body while rubbing, etc.). Assisted masturbation is unlawful if it is done with other than one's
spouse (e.g., a girlfriend, a boyfriend, or an animal).
b) Self masturbation (masturbation in which only one person is involved) is permissible if done
in private (alone or in the presence of one's spouse) and without pornography (or other illicit
materials, such as drugs). Self masturbation is unlawful if done in public (in front of another
person other than one's spouse) or if done with the aid of pornography (or other materials illicit in
our din, such as narcotics).
The above two rulings apply equally to both males and females. Please note that this above ruling is the most
lenient available and, as such, is not the safest. (Guiding Helper Pg. 190 with Explanatory Notes)
I have never heard this opinion. Who narrarated such an opinion?
I always thought there was an 'ijma on this.
