Is Masturbation a Sin?

Kuna mtu kaniuliza swali hili la masturbation ...ameniambia kuwa verse hii ni kama inaruhusu punyeto..hebu wadau mwenye sound aurguments azitoe hapa maana hatubishani ila tunaelimishana..

"'When a man has an emission of semen, he must bathe his whole body with water, and he will be unclean till evening. Any clothing or leather that has semen on it must be washed with water, and it will be unclean till evening. When a man lies with a woman and there is an emission of semen, both must bathe with water, and they will be unclean till evening. (Lev 15:16-18)

Notice verse 18 deals with seminal emission during sexual intercourse, but verse 16 is speaking of a seminal emission that does not occur as a result of intercourse. If this is indeed a reference to masturbation, the matter-of-fact way in which God deals with this matter certainly indicates that no feelings of shame should be attached to it. He simply said, "Go take a bath."

That's sin just as adultery.
