I was about 13 when the bishop started asking about masturbation in those worthiness interviews. I’ll never forget the first time. He asked if I masturbated. I didn’t know what it was so he threw out the terms “jack off” and “jerk off”. It made me feel very uncomfortable. I was asked this many times throughout my teenage years, as well as other boys in the ward. I loathed going to those interviews every six months. I wasn’t happy as my birthday approached because it meant another interview.
Bishops should be there to provide spiritual guidance and help to the youth, not to delve into personal matters. I’m ok in life but still look back at that time of my life and it wasn’t very happy.
