Does masturbation cause uti?

Does masturbation cause uti?

It shouldn't: Masturbation without rubbing the urethral meatus (the hole where the urine (pee) comes out) should not be related to uti's. That means one can have a UTI regardless of one's masturbation. Mutual masturbation is a little more risky because one person may not know where the other person's urethral meatus is. It may be wise to learn one's anatomy to avoid rubbing somebody wrong.

And eating hot peppers can mimic a uti.
