Hogwash, frequent ejaculation does not cause acne. Acne was considered a telltale 'symptom' of a masturbator in the 19th and early 20th century. The notion that sexual activity causes acne has long since been discredited by science.

Okay I am reading this and cannot make out anything. Can somebody just tell me if Masturbating DOES cause acne or if it is a false.

About this issue I'm totally hostile. I've said that multiple times in my posts.

Locnar, the fact is you're just terrified that you might be wrong and that acne is indeed a holistic issue. You seem to think that the countless testimonials of people who have discovered a link in their own cases between diet, masturbation etc and acne is a massive internet conspiracy aimed at you personally rolleyes.gif

Yes, in many cases, though not for everyone. Ejaculation temporarily boosts testosterone levels, raising DHT, causing the sebaceous glands to produce more oil, causing acne.

OMFG. I can't believe how many dumbasses have managed to cram themseleves into this one thread.

Seriously, Locnar is the only person making any sense around here. I once thought acne was related to masturbation, tried it out, and guess what? NOTHING HAPPENED. Then I come and read this and see some ass-knocker trying to convince people that all our diseases are somehow self-inflicted. AND, OMG, HE@S A MEDICALL STUEDNENT WE'D ALL bETTER BELIEVE HIM, OKAyt. SERIOUSLY, YOU HAVE NO EVIDENCE AND KEEP AVOIDING SUPPLYING EVIDENCE SO NO-ONE IS GOING TO BELIEVE YOU OKAY? PLEASE SUPPLY SOME EVIDENCE OR SOMETHING.

Yea, the body is ALWAYS producing sperm. There is a sort-of bell curve to it, though, there is a place somewhere in the middle that the levels of hormones - hormones that also cause production of sebum, an excess of which clogs the sebaceous glands - peak. If you never do, then of course, those hormones won't be doing much work. If you wank all the time, your body is just gonna be too exhausted to produce anything (and your hand will be tired, too.)

I've heard ppl say that every time you jizz you lose zinc, but just so everyone knows that amount is in the MICROGRAMS, like less than 100 micrograms, so it doesn't matter at all.

I never said masturbation causes acne in all people. It may have an effect on some people, but it's probably safe to say it has no effect on the average acne sufferer. All I know is that from a medical science stand-point, masturbation causes a usually mild surge of hormones and can deplete zinc levels in the body. However, what that exactly causes hasn't been studied yet, as far as I know.

The body is an extremely complicated organism with many variables between different people. If you break out after masturbating, don't do it as often. If not, then you're fine. It's simple really.

The only way masturbation could cause acne is by the release of adrenal
hormones due to over-exertion. Since masturbation rarely lasts
an extended amount of time, the chances are slim to none.

But regular, two-people sex does NOT cause acne? How does that work?

Exactly what I was thinking. Also, from what I read here you're saying zinc is lost through semen. So, what about us girls? To state the obvious. Would masturbation only effect guys, then? :blink:

But if you think about a little, ive masterbated for almost like everyday during my period of when my puberty happened and hormones are already raging so i think that it never got to settle down and i am very deficient to zinc because of this.

I Have one question to people who think that masterbation is the cause of your acne... where do you get acne? because that one picture where it shows you about which organ controls which part of your face. it seem a bit true to me because i get acne on my jawlines and temples which is = to the sex organs. my forehead is clear because i drink so much water which is connected to the liver. so i guess i have an ok liver

Masturbation does not cause acne. That's something repressed parents tell their children to get them to date rape someone before marriage.

I personally think its unrelated (masturbation and acne).
