Context: in this manga the protagonist, a cameraman that likes to film scenes of real violence and homicides, is saying that he dislikes video of people filming themselves while committing suicide:
I don't understand why the term 自慰 was used here and I don't know how to translate it. The Daijirin has two meanings for 自慰:
1. 自分で自分を慰めること。 2. 手淫(シユイン)。 オナニー。
Since the word has the オナニー furigana, the only possible meaning in this case is the second one,
masturbation, but I think it doesn't fit in the sentence. Could it be interpreted as something similar like
self-complacency, or self-satisfaction? My translation attempt:
Someone wanting do die and making a video of his death... is just self-complacency, right? I can't stand watching other people self-complacency.
Other than suggesting a translation for 自慰, could you also explain what you think the general meaning of the sentence is? Let me know if you need more context. Thank you for your help!
