Attractive young farang women, teaching English to young monks. What a combination! Fortunately they're only novices, so cannot be guilty of commiting a sanghadisesa! Otherwise there'd be trouble... :lol:

Masturbation would be breaking one of their 10 precepts. From memory that's "Brahmachariya veramani sikkapadam samadhiami".
Usually they then go to a senior monk or their preceptor, and take the 10 precepts again. But there's no formal punishment or penance.
