Great post Wicus.
Love and blessings to you beloved.
Sakthysharon, this is very interesting. I have searched numerous current and old versions of the Bible in English. None of them give us this interpretation. The statements there seem to all include perverse sexual acts, especially in regards to sex with people that are not our spouse.
It seems to me however, that the deeper issue is lust. What is the problem with masturbation is that it tends to be a fountain of lust, whether due to pornography or otherwise.
Lust, like covetousness is a deep heart issue for us and we must devote our hearts to Christ to be free from such things. Only when we see creation as belonging to God can we see it this way. David said "against YOU and YOU alone have I sinned." now we know that David sinned against his wife, against his nation, against Uriah and even against Bathsheba in his lust and adultery. However, David's heart knew that all of these were sins against the creator of all things.
Thank you for sharing. Have you considered this interpretation of the verse?
Gill's Exposition of the Entire Bible
And if any man's seed of copulation go out from him,.... Not in lawful cohabitation, nor voluntarily, but involuntarily, as Aben Ezra observes; not through any disorder, which came by an accident, or in any criminal way, but through a dream, or any lustful imagination; what is commonly called nocturnal pollution (c):
then he shall wash all his flesh in water, and be unclean until the even; and so the Egyptian priests, when it happened that they were defiled by a dream, they immediately purified themselves in a laver (d) so the Jewish priests did when the like happened to them asleep in the temple (e); see Deuteronomy 23:10
