In brief: Perhaps

Prostate and seminal vesicle congestion is irritating? We call prostatis when we cannot make a more specific diagnosis, and you suffer irritative effects.
Commonly, anti-biotics are used, and anti-inflammatories. But sex, too much or too little, has no established role. Having sex can elevate the psa test, however.

In brief: Prostatitis

Prostatitis has little to no relationship to celibacy.
It occurs in similar frequency in celebate and sexually active males. It is most often caused by gram negative bacteria from ones own GI tract. Nonbacterial prostatitis is much less well understood, it typically is the result of non bacterial induced inflammation.
