Can I translate " la masturbation rend sourd " by " masturbation makes you
deaf " ?
The translation is literally correct, but the admonitions I have heard traditionally are about it making you blind, not deaf...
Yes, I heard it with blind, too.
And by the way, could you please use a bigger font in your posts?
The classic line is:
"Did you know, masturbation makes ymmm dmmm"
"MAKES YOU DEAF!"
Yes but blind was the usual threat. Wasn't it "send" you blind though? (Oh, and straight to Hell of course!)
These are nothing but old wives' tales. It makes hair grow on the palms of your hands. Everybody knows that.
Separate names with a comma.
