In brief: May not be related?
One would surmise that if one daily masturbates that there is a daily "draining" of prostatic fluids, thus, cleaning out the prostate gland.
This said, one would think less prostate engorgement and less "problems". There are other reasons for prostate problems and infections, etc. May be of no consequence, but otherwise may have "beneficial" effect.

In brief: Probably less
Masturbation helps to flush the prostatic ducts.
This could be beneficial.
