There are many myths about what kind of negative things can happen to men and boys that masturbate, also known as "playing with one's self," among other more colorful descriptions. These masturbation consequences include boys and men growing hair on their palms, suffering mental health issues, and even injury to their private parts.
And now those males that masturbate can add a new potential consequence to their dangers-of-masturbation list. One (or both?) of their hands may become pregnant in the afterlife.
At least that's the alleged claim of Turkish Muslim preacher Mucahid Cihad Han, according to Hurriyet Daily News.
Not only that, Mucahid Cihad Han says that men who masturbate will be greeted by their hand, "pregnant in the afterlife," and "asking for its rights."
This claim about the long term repercussions of masturbation and pregnant hands by Mucahid Cihad Han set off a kerfuffle in the social media world, offering some Twitter users the opportunity to make masturbation jokes but also opening the door to more questions about masturbation, reports the New York Post.
