Some of the examples in the list doesn't make much sense IMO, the piece about the urethra is one of them. In fact, the male urethra, due to its length, protects against bladder infection. In most cases infections of the bladder are ascending infections, germs reaching the bladder through the urethra. Females have significantly shorter urethrae than males and are much more susceptible to bladder infections.

The prostatic gland may play a role, but mostly due to enlargement of the gland which can compress the tube, preventing complete emptying of the bladder. Urine remaining in the bladder between peeing is a significant contributor to infection.
