Prostate: If by "inactive" you mean no ejaculations (by whatever means) then no, there are no health consequences of sexual inactivity.

No: There is great debate on whether more or less sexual acitvity has any effect on prostate health. The truth is this is largely an individual factor and it is different for every patient. In general terms, no, there is no significant , predictable dire implication to your health just because you are sexually inactive.

Here are some ...: No organ or tissue of a body is ever inactive, but always working to serve its duty coming to life. Likewise, prostate has always served as door guard to minimize UTI, as a "milk man" to nourish sperms,... But its different intensity of use may bring about some variation of disorders. These are the matter of common sense in life. So, "inactive" prostate in your sense will still get some problems..
