Mormon Church Urges Utah Gov. Limit Sales of Vaseline, Kleenex To Stop Masturbation

By H. Peter Johnson

The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has declared war against masturbation, which they conclude is seriously harming the lives of young people. And they have decided to go after supplies that potential masturbators might need.

Bob Whitbread, LDS spokesperson, said the church is going to urge Utah Gov. Gary Herbert to impose limits on the sale of Vaseline and Kleenex.

“If a young man is buying large supplies of these items, it’s evident he has fallen prey to masturbation,” Whitbread said.

“The sin of masturbation occurs when a person stimulates his or her own sex organs for the purpose of sexual arousal. It is a perversion of the body’s passions. When we pervert these passions and intentionally use them for selfish, immoral purposes, we become carnal,” according to the church’s website.

Mormon-dominated Utah is known as one of the most conservative states in the union. Herbert recently signed a resolution labelling pornography a “public health crisis.” However, Utah is known to have the highest consumption of pornography in the country, according to a study by Harvard professor Benjamin Edelman.


  1. Idea: tie everyone’s hands behind their backs and penalize ( did I write that ?!) anyone who bends over “too far” displaying exceptional flexibility.

  2. And Utah has the highest subscriptions to porn of any state. (They also have the highest per capita consumption of ice cream, the Utah version of safe sex…).

  3. CAN YOU SAY “BULLSHIT”? What about women? Are they also on the churches list too and are they also limited in their purchases. How “naive” can a group be?

    • “Bob Whitbread” doesn’t even exist. This came from a phony website. Maybe you all should get your facts and sources straight before you open your ignorant mouths. And don’t act like pornography and masturbation aren’t a bad thing. They are highly addictive, rot the brain, and destroy genuine love and relationships. They aren’t “natural”. Only sex is. Makes me sick when people are so naive to believe crap like this.

  4. Utah has the highest consumption of pornography because sex and mastrubation are labeled as taboo. Sex and mastrubation are natural and normal parts of human nature and should be treated as such.

  5. Mormon church needs to join the 21st century and get out of the dark ages. God loves all of his children, not just the backwards Mormon.

  6. We’ll just use our snot for lubricant, since there won’t be any Kleenex around to blow it into….
    ROFLMAO good one, BS News

  7. I live in utah, but am not a member of the LDS church. I find it interesting that they want to limit kleenex. Each year my children’s teacher request that we donate boxes of kleenexs for the classroom. The kids aren’t using it for masturbation, they use it to wipe their noses. This is just silly. Let’s face it, if some wants to masturbate they aren’t going to choose not to because they are out of kleenexs, they will just use something else.

  8. Ok ban hand lotion olive oil baby oil the list goes on! And what young man goes in and buys large quantities of tissues and lotion? Idiotic people bet they have never aroused their lover! Yet these are the same people who at one time thought it was ok to rape young girls(sex under the age of consent is rape) Cruz quit this nonsense

  9. That has to be the dumbest concept ever.

    Why not just castrate the blighters?

    Religion is entertainment for the true thinking and logical mind.

  10. Lol‼️ Wow really this is dumb as fuck if somebody masturbate that they’re right and privilege there are people out here it’s hungry homeless and needing help there are people out here that has mental and physical disabilities people crying out for help that’s what we need to be focusing on you guys that the sales of Vaseline how are you want people are still going to masturbate. The church of Latter Day Saints need to get a life and focus on the real stuff and the crazy part about it though also talking about limiting the sales to keep people from masturbating are the very ones is doing more than a little bit‼️????????????

    • Lol cracks me up all the fools that believe this article is real

      Stupid uninformed people will believe anything that is written about Mormons or Utah what a bunch of lemmings

  11. Out of prurient interest? Exactly how much Vaseline qualifies as a “large amount”? (And are there any Sam’s Clubs or Costco in Utah? Any store which sells items in bulk is obviously in league with Satan!)

  12. U Mormons are freakin idiots…there is more to worry about in this world than masturbating to much….and if they want to masturbate limiting sales of kleenex and vaseline are not going to stop them

  13. What will they ban next? Brains? Thinking? Because sex starts in the mind and continue ues to the body.
    When I was a teenager, any memory, any picture, any thought could produce an election which then precipitated self stimulation, ie masturbation! These morons will have to ban the teenage years if their plan is going to work! NOT!

  14. So, are they also going to limit sales of mention baby oil, olive oil, coconut oil, vegetable oil, margarine… ? What about zucchini and cucumbers? You’d think they’d have more to worry about than this. I mean, what about all those caffeine addicts out there?

  15. Complete utter IDIOTS. Grow up you ignorant fools! This is normal for anyone to do and there is nothing wrong with it. Your bigoted church and beliefs are what should be banned! Trying to control what other people do with their own bodies is ridiculous! Take your ignorant beliefs and shove them up your ass!

  16. I’m what is referred to as a ‘Jack Mormon’. I left the church because of the civil rights movement of the 60’s. I’m sorry but I don’t believe a word of this. Even though I no longer practice the religion I can’t think that this is anything but a sack of bullshit. I don’t think this is official church policy. Maybe Snopes should look into this crap.

  17. Don’t you folks know a blatant joke when you see one? Just to set the record straight, the Mormon Church hasn’t even contemplated such a stupid request to the Governor, let alone made that request.

      • “Bob Whitbread” doesn’t even exist. This came from a phony website. Maybe you all should get your facts and sources straight before you open your ignorant mouths. And don’t act like pornography and masturbation aren’t a bad thing. They are highly addictive, rot the brain, and destroy genuine love and relationships. They aren’t “natural”. Only sex is.

        PS – you’re “stupid”

  18. If you can’t love yourself …. How in the hell can you love anyone else? Making love to youse
    Love to yourself is (SAFE SEX????)…..

  19. The Mormons own the coca-cola company but don’t believe in consuming it.Sooooooooooo…Guess who owns all the porno shops in Utah…………

  20. Great article, and great comments! LoL!! I met a Mormon once who didn’t even realize that gullible was the only common English word not defined in any major American can dictionary. Don’t believe me? Look it up!

  21. Maybe they should worry more about the amount of church leaders who are molesting their kids or members of the church. Masturbation should be a personal thing not something you tell the bishop so he can make it a sin. Just another reason for church members to fear they will go to helI. This is a control thing no one has the power to stop people from masturbating. I bet 90 percent of people masturbating don’t use Kleenex ha ha

  22. A close friend of mine, a former Mormon who went on a Mormon mission, did not masturbate at all during his mission. And this caused him to develop a paralyzing case of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder that he still lives with today — although he says it’s not quite so intense anymore. But he still can’t allow anyone to use his bathrooms at his home without then having to go inch my inch and meticulously cleaning and sanitizing the entire bathroom. And that’s just one example. And this is not in humor like the article above. Not masturbating when one is young is like not sleeping; both have increasingly serious harmful physical and mental consequences — some even permanent.

  23. Look people the elite uses the morman church as one of their tools and they put this out there to try and start like a persecution of Christian type of thing . I’ve done a little research on the morman church and I’ve read that witches and and warlocks actually made that religion up probably not true but mormans got some weird shit going on though

  24. Who uses Vaseline for this? And Kleenex? Good god, what’s wrong with these people? None of the fellas in my halfway house ever used any of that stuff.

    I always use my grandma’s hand cream for motion comfort and I wipe up on her living room curtains. I like to get that old lady stank on when I’m dancing solo on grandma’s couch singing In-a-God-Da-Vida and Baby I’m a Want You.

    When the bridge club ladies object I tell them I learned it from an investigator on my mission.
