If you are a carrier, the friction can exacerbate thrush. Try the probiotics as Maya suggests.

Masturbation can aggravate thrush if you have it already or are about to get an infection.
Try using culturelle vaginal capsules, they are a vaginal probiotic that restores the environmental balance. You don't need a script and cost about R80-90 and are at all large pharmacies.
Also try taking a daily probiotic as this will hit the thrush at the source and help in stopping your cycle of infections:)
