My boss says it is illegal for me to masturbate in my cubicle. No one else can see. Is he lying
He is correct and you most probably need to seek psychological counseling, whether this inquiry is legitimate or not.
Please note that this posting does not constitute legal advice or create any attorney-client relationship with the inquirer. Avvo is a useful forum to obtain general information on legal issues, but is not a substitute for direct, confidential consultation with an attorney in any legal matter.
It probably is illegal; even if it isn't, it would probably be a legitimate reason for termination. Rather than worrying whether or not your boss is lying, you should be more concerned about your actions. Some counseling would probably help you and be in your best interests.
This answer is of a general nature and should not be relied upon as final, nor is it intended as legal advice. A consultation with an experienced attorney is always the best way to go.
Although this is not an immigration question, it is clear that such action is a violation of law. If this question is being asked as a prank or goof, then please direct somewhere else. Either way, you need help ASAP.

This is a basis to terminate your employment. Depending on all the facts, this could be illegal:
