In brief: Nope
So enjoy yourself because it wont cause a hernia.
But if you have a hernia, it might aggravate it.

In brief: No
Vigorous sexual actvity could aggravate a preexisting hernia but i doubt it would cause one.
I have been doing hernia surgery since 1970 and no one has yet to claim that is how the hernia occurred.
