In brief: No, but

Society has such ambivalent feelings about masturbation that some well might feel so guilty for engaging in this perfectly naturaly activity that they suffer from poor self esteem or even depression because they think it "proves" they're a bad and weak person.
Sex drive often decreases with depression but can become a preoccupation that's part of depression to. Whatever...It is not the cause!
