Not only masturbating, any thing you like doing again and again and again .... is bad.
For example ..... If you like eating apple to the point that you crave for it .... its bad.
Its same as the person getting addicted toward the sensation they get after drinking / smoking. Any likeness / dis likeness toward anything is BAD.
With Feeling as condition, Craving arises
With Craving as condition, Clinging arises
With Clinging as condition, Becoming arises
With Becoming as a condition, Birth arises
With Birth as condition, Aging and Dying arise
