My youth leader took a different route. One day in Deacon’s quorum he asked all of us “Do you know what jacking off is?” He sort of made a hand motion to kind of give us the idea. When no one really replied, he said, “Well, don’t do that”.
Seems maybe harmless? But we got these types of messages subtly told to us over and over and over. So it was clear when we wanted to pass our temple recommend interview (because of the shame that would come if we didn’t pass it), that “the law of chastity” meant for youth “no jacking off”. This lead to years of intense guilt coupled with cutting myself and burning myself repeatedly as punishment. I began suffering from some unrelated medical issues, but always assumed I was being punished for masturbating, and so I resisted seeking medical help for well over a decade.
I thought about killing myself as well. I was cursed with urges that I knew were evil, and no matter what I tried I couldn’t fix it, and I also couldn’t bear the thought of confessing to my bishop so instead all those years I lied, which really just compounded the guilt. I spent many years in counseling, and my counselor was shocked time and time again to hear of the mental burdens I had taken on because of the guilt and shame.
