  • Don’t really know for sure but from my experience from listening to Buddhist monks it’s very frowned upon on for monks

  • The Buddhists consider semen to be spiritual energy of some sorts, considering it literally gives life. Masturbation is seen as a waste of potential and is therefore not a good thing to do. Don't know if it is "banned".

      • Buddhism wasn't intended to be for women. The Buddha taught his philosophy to a small elite of male followers. Early buddhism would 100% be considered "misogynistic" by today's standards, and female-exclusionary.
