Comedian, Wale Gates has reacted to a statement which was made by a counsellor at the Redeemed Christian Church of God, RCCG about masturbating with a particular person in mind being rape.
@PSFRCCGOfficial took to Twitter to highlight points made during the RCCG Convention 2019. While discussing masturbation, Timi Oyebode, a counsellor and author at the church said masturbating to someone’s image is no different from raping the person.
One of the tweets shared by RCCG reads,
You can’t Masturbate without imagining someone in mind and when you do such, you are partaking in RAPE.
For the person you picture in your mind hasn’t given you the right to touch or picture them in your mind.

A number of Twitter users didn’t quite agree with this school of thought as they expressed their disagreement on the platform.
Comedian Wale Gates reacted to the tweet, saying,
What I want to ask RCCG now is, So if and when I want to “release tension” and go on at certain website to research material for tension release, Do I have to call the person that might be in my thots first for their consent?
And how will the conversation go?
