Noyes on masturbation (c.1850)

From MALE CONTINENCE by John Humphrey Noyes

[Noyes practiced non-ejaculatory sex for over 25 years, as part of a community founded on that principle. Ejaculatory sex was reserved for deliberate procreation.]

It is seriously believed by many that nature requires a periodical and somewhat frequent discharge of the seed, and that the retention of it is liable to be injurious. Even if this were true, it would be no argument against Male Continence [making love without ejaculation], but rather an argument in favor of masturbation; for it is obvious that before marriage men have no lawful method of discharge but masturbation; and after marriage it is as foolish and cruel to expend one's seed on a wife merely for the sake of getting rid of it, as it would be to fire a gun at one's best friend merely for the sake of unloading it. If a blunderbuss must be emptied, and the charge cannot be drawn, it is better to fire into the air than to kill somebody with it.
