Hello Rosemary

Thank you for writing.

Since you want to control your urges due to your religious beliefs, I can only suggest you do what religious people tend to do, which is pray or talk to a pastor or trusted friend.
It's your choice to buy a vibrator or not, or to masturbate (something considered normal/healthy in the medical community) or not. It is not up to us to make these decisions for you as we cannot counsel you from a religious viewpoint.
