Con

If Con could provide some reasons as to why masturbation is immoral, it would be much appreciated.

Firstly masturbation inveighs against natural laws. You may be wondering what I mean by natural laws, "Natural Laws" refers to the axiomatic law of God that cannot be changed or altered in any fashion. It is the created order of things that is distinct from other forms of law such as "positive law" that arises to govern political communities, and society. We know that males and females genitalia were only created for each other, because it is only when those two sexual organs come together that new life has the potential to be created. Indeed, that is the only manner in which new human life naturally reproduces itself. Moreover, there is no other place where a man can place his genitals that can result in the creation of one of his kind than inside of the female genital.
When a man or woman artificially stimulates their genitals, it violates and defeats the very purpose for which they were given to us in the first place. It"s like using an automobile for a sailboat. Not only are you not using it for what it was created and purposed for, but you"re going to ruin the darn thing.
It is difficult enough for us to always honor the purpose and order of those things truly created by God, but at least if we would take the time to consider their Creator we might be able relearn and recommit ourselves to using what God have given us rightly. For when we truly trust that God is Holy, we simultaneously trust that the purpose and order of things that He has made are also holy. Our body has a created purpose and masturbation violates that purpose.

It's a scientific article, don't worry. There will be no offending pictures, as far as I know.
Animals do masturbate. Prove me wrong if you dare.

@Teemo Monkeys do, Humans do, Last time I checked Humans and Monkeys are Mammals that classify as "Animal"

Reasons for voting decision: Con forfeits and so conduct points to Pro. Con also made no arguments and so Pro gets argument points. All Con needed to do was ask the simple question prove God to make a counter argument against Pro. Well done Pro.
