Question
Could it hurt anything to masturbate in a bathtub?  Like in hot water?

Answer
Sexual behavior or any physical activity in hot water should be done with caution because your body can't cool itself and you could overheat.  That said, masturbating doesn't usually generate so much heat of its own and would probably not cause any problem.  If part of your body is out of the water (e.g, back, shoulders), you would have even less reason to worry.
