MrRacingMan,

Probably not. Masturbation usually isn't as strenuous as having sexual intercourse. It usually takes quite a bit of intraabdominal pressure to force the bowel through the inguinal ring.

The masturbation is probably not the cause. If you do have a hernia, though, it needs to be checked out by a surgeon.

Good luck.
