comment What is the philosophy or logic for considering masturbation to be sinful?
None of these answers mention Onan's sin. Does that play any role?

comment Halachic issues with using a frozen river as a mikvah
@DannySchoemann I was trying to put some emphasis on "what if it becomes a problem for the man"; a lot of other big issurim are involved here.

comment “Praiseworthy is he who will clutch and dash your infants against the rock”?
@Fred, this is fantastic and enough for an answer, I would think. If you have the energy to turn it into an answer, please do, since mods around here delete comments on a dime. This is GREAT information. Thanks.

@DannySchoemann I'm also wondering what should be done if, as you suggest, the woman shouldn't dip. Should they sleep together when she is a niddah or stop sleeping together? What if it becomes a problem for the man?

@Fred Interesting. But am I mistaken that the Jews are hoping for the same to happen to them?

comment Can a Jewish woman sing in front of a non-Jewish man?
@DoubleAA It's a question, not a claim. And an asker is not required to "prove" a question. It's the answerer's job to prove an answer.

@DoubleAA Anyway, the answer I accepted seems to be exactly along the lines of my hypothesis.

comment Can a Jewish woman sing in front of a non-Jewish man?
@DoubleAA Correct. I was assuming in that line that lifnei iver was the only possible issue, which may not be the case. I would expect any answer to address other issues if they were significant. FYI I only added that bit because you wanted more details on assumptions, motivations, and potential issues. I would be happy to edit it out.

@DannySchoemann The sport thing is different; in those cases, other people are around. I would imagine the main danger in this is actually being trapped under the ice or otherwise being unable to get out.

comment Halachic issues with using a frozen river as a mikvah
@DoubleAA You may be right, but the text you linked doesn't imply that the woman has a mitzvah in this. (It does imply that she is liable to be punished for what her husband does, but this is a slightly different thing.)
