It would be my pleasure to debate this with you, though I do find it is a little excessive for this debate to be five rounds. I think three rounds would have been more appropriate.

B
y the way, I have not been to this site in the last four months, and it’s good to be back. This will be my first debate since my return.

Make your case.

What gives? You initiate a debate and then forfeit your first argument round?

The burden of proof is on you. If you forfeit the rest of the debate and even if I do not present any arguments, I win by default.

You have three more chances. If you don't want to debate, then get off this site.

I’m frustrated with these members who join the site, have one or two debates, and then leave without closing their account. I especially am frustrated by guys like this who leave in the middle of a debate. That’s incredibly rude!


A full seven point loss was earned by my opponent.


I might as well add in a brief word about why masturbating is not wrong, even though technically I do not have to in order to win this debate:


Masturbation has not been shown to have negative effects on those who masturbate. Myths that one would go blind or grow fur on one’s hand have been refuted. Appeals to going to hell after death for masturbating are impossible to verify. My opponent did not present any evidence about the mental effects of masturbation.


In addition to this, masturbation can be a great form of relaxation. It can also be tremendous stress reliever.


Since my opponent has presented no evidence for why masturbation is wrong, and on top of this we have some reason to think that it can be quite helpful in moderation, the resolution has not been proven.

I might actually take this if you're serious about this. I was obviously kidding with that comment but I might consider this debate.

the first round of masturbating doesn't count?

SO it's only wrong to masturbate starting round 2?

Reasons for voting decision: Conduct to Con because of Pro's full forfeit, spelling and grammar to Con since Pro doesn't feel the need to put a full stop at the end of his sentences, arguments to Con because he actually made some, and sources are a tie since no sources were used throughout the entire debate.
