Britney Spears appeared to have stuck her foot in her mouth, or had one of her so-called “brain farts” when describing masturbation as “sacred” in an interview with Diane Sawyer on ABC’s ‘Primetime’ last night, though there is some evidence to back her suggestion. Spears was talking about her new single ‘Touch of My Hand’. AllAboutSex.org claims masturbation “was connected with religious worship” in some ancient western cultures. Public masturbation during religious worship “to expel evil and honor the gods of generation” became a part of ancient Egyptian, Phoenician, Babylonian, and Assyrian sacred ceremonies according to the website. But Spears’ latest religious foray into Kabbalah, with new pal Madonna’s prodding, suggests masturbation is a sin. AskMoses.com says, “Kabbalah is very explicit about the negative spiritual side-effects of masturbation. The idea is as follows: Your seed is the material by which you procreate; it is the genetic material within you that allows you the opportunity to partner with God.”
