comment What's the difference between wasting seed and having marital relations without the possibility of conception?
Is it such a big sin? It's not generally considered one the Torah commandments, and there is no punishment associated with it, not even rebelling against a rabbinic decree.

comment If masturbation is so bad, why is it not in list of 613 Mitzvos?
One thing to point out is that there isn't any punishment associated with it. I mean, Rambam says that a person who takes charity to learn Torah looses their Olam HaBa, but this horrible sin which is compared to murder has no punishment at all?

comment Why did the animals of Ninveh have to fast and wear sackcloth?
they can be made to perform acts for the service of idolotry. just like when an animal gores a person, and the person dies, the animal is put to death.

comment How early in the cycle can a woman who is undergoing IVF go to mikvah?
I am looking for more concrete responses ,I would like to find out the core of the halacha on nidda. i realize that some of you will keep assuming that i am looking to get a psak for myself but do not worry, i am not, and do not, take what anyone says as law without checking for myself. i am simply looking for information which seems scarce.the concern about ""confusing" people is invalid. you can find all sorts of opinions if you look for them. the fact that a huge amount of the jewish population do not keep these laws is in itself a proof that the halacha needs more publicity and expounding.

in theory, those who accomodate Teitelbaum's opinion (which is most or all in Israel Ashkenaz and Sephardic) for cases of IVF, how do they do that? I realize you are not interested in discussing this - so to anyone out there who has knowledge on the topic-a response would be appreciated.

comment If one keeps the deoraita nidah(7days) but not the additional 4-5 days, is there a punishment?
"for the Torah says: You shall not approach a woman in her time of ritually impure nidah". It seems obvious that she had not gone to mikveh since ,if she had, she would not be "in her time of ritually impure nidah"-but rather either pure from nidah or a zaava. The gemara says "nidah" so it is because she had not gone to the mikveh that he got punished.(not for breaking a rabinical prohibition when she was not deoraita nida)
