OKCupid asks if you you’ve ever masturbated? Is that one of their criteria for compatibility?

Daniel Klein says:

If you’re not compatble with yourself, how can you be compatible with anyone else?

Ah–as Wilde had it:

To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance.

You young folk have no idea how easy you have it. As Larkin said:

Up to then there’d only been
A sort of bargaining,
A wrangle for the ring,
A shame that started at sixteen
And spread to everything.

Larkin ftw

Dan Klein says:

So a post about Onanism has produced the most highbrow comment the Scroll has ever seen.

Oh, sure. But how many of those agnostics and atheists are MOT?

AlizaG says:

…and how many of us just didn’t answer the question because we thought it really wasn’t relevent to how “datable” we think we are? (raises hand)

Yaakov Hillel says:

In Judaism male masturbation is prohibited. Meaning that most religious Jews will not masturbate due to the fear of terrible retribution, or not to get a red mark in their grade books. Others will lie because for them, being there is a religious prohibition on male masturbation the shame of masturbating is greater than the sin of telling a lie. If you wanted to make a fair question that does not have to do with specifically ones religion, ask if they have tried drugs or alcohol before the age of 18.
