Why masturbation causes acne?

201 posts in this topic

I saw a piece of advice from specialists in skin care. When asked "can masturbation aggravate acne?" their response was:

Yes! it does.

Over-masturbation or excessive sex causes excessive stress (dopamine-adrenalin convesion) and excessive DHT (testosterone-DHT conversion) that trigger ACNE outbreaking.

Excessive sex causes an excessive testosterone-DHT conversion.

The hormone DHT level is one of the main factors causing ACNE outbreaking.

The liver enzyme 5-alpha reductase is responsible for converting testosterone into DHT.

Your sexual activity and the testosterone-DHT conversion are correlated and stimulated each other, until you reach a point of temporary sexual exhaustion. At the point of temporary sexual exhaustion, your ACNE outbreaking reaches its peak while sexual energy suddenly drops to a trough..

So I was wondering, has anybody actually tried quitting the masturbation for a month? and recorded the results?

Yes, lots of people on Acneorg. actually swear by not masturbating.

I'm going to move this to the Acne research forum - you'll find more information about this subject there.

Its one of the major reasons I believe for you to get the whole acne symptom the whole hormones going insane and then you come out wth diff sorts of acne bumps.Acne happens for many diff reasons for diff people.

Dont you see how everytime your in your teens and you go to a doc complaining about your acne and he/she says dont worry you just hit your puberty and at this age you are having too many hormonal changes so within time everything will go away by itself.What they are actually trying to say is that you just learned about sex so eventually your masturabting too much or having sex too much,thinking about it too much which your hormones are not used to ,so eventually when youll grow a bit older & get used to all the sexual excitement your hormones will also settle down & get used too.By that time i think many other factors also kick in too aggrevate acne & not everyone gets out of acne when thier teens are finished.Though i do believe its one of the major reasons for the whole acne.There are people who prob masturbate 10 times everyday and get nothing & some 2-3 times a week and get it,everyones body reacts diff and some bodies can actually balance the hormonal change,but in majority the excess is a cause.

How much is too much,there are people who masturbate everyday numerous times i think those are the ones who mostly get affected ,doing it 2 times a week should keep your hormones steady,yet as i said before ppl react diff ,infact nothing too much is good anyway there should always be a limit.Once you have unsettled your hormones even stopping masturbation for a month will not make it go away,what it can do is produce less oil which comes into your face due to hormonal imbalance but in a long term it can really help and control (sorry my English is not good and im not familiar with the biological terms).

i personally believe too much masturbating causes acne because when i go for 3 to 4 times i really do break out.... it is really true...

I think the obvious conclusion is that if you test it by quitting the habit for a while and it clears you up a bit, then this applies to you, and you should accept the correlation, even if you do not understand the exact semantics of things. Obviously since people are different, others may not be affected by the habit, and they are lucky.

not gonna lie guys, i think masturbation does affect my acne. Been on study break for a bit, and whacked off a bit more than normal. And breakouts are far too high!!! So i tried to stop this weekend, but it is hard, especially when your on your own revising, with a computer next to you :S

Any ideas on how to try and keep myself from thinking about it? As the more i think about it, the more i want to do it :S!!

I found the best way to stop is to keep active, and talk to people if its possible. Lift weights, ride your bike, do anything but dont be bored, thats when the urge sets in.

so is once a day alright?

In my opinion its too much and most likely one of the reasons you have acne, you are consistantly doing it once a day or more for a long period.BUt most people dont want to believe this since they dont want to stop thier pleasure time.There is no medical link between masturbation and acne-researchers i believe atleast have found no link ,well they also didnt find any link with food and acne ,but it does affect most of us.

I've masturbated 14 times in the last three days. Not a spot.

In fact, after I first lost my virginity when I was still a teen, my girlfriend and I went at it 2-3 times a day for six months, and I masturbated on top of that. Still not a spot. Ever seen a porn star with acne?

Porn stars dont have as much sex as you would think.

There are people who live in dumps with bacteria all over their skin,eat whateever they want ,and as you say masturbate countless and they get nothing-no spot wtsoever,everybody reacts differently.Acne i believe has alot to do with genetics,most of us are acne prone from birth we just aggrevate it by doing things-things that are somwhat allergic to us.But when you are in your teens your body is not used to the sexual hormones so more likely it is gonna effect the majority of people.You are not going to break out masturbating just in a day or 2 you will slowly slowly build,acne doesnt happen in 1 day its weeks that build acne beneath,and eventually it will break out,why do we get acne when we are 13-14 mainly in our teens? this is a big clue to me atleast.

Keep masturbating for a long period it will cause oily skin and make you more acne prone,atleast to majority of the people.MAsturbation alone doesnt cause ance there are other factors i believe related to it yet i think masturbation is one of the key factors.I myself was regular into masturbation and i broke into acne cause of it-infact even an urologist (however its spelt) will tell you not to masturbate more than 2 times a week to keep your hormones in balance but when we are younger we tend to do it excess & not only masturbation,nothing excess is good.I had no acne just by not masturbating and not eating oily food (besides the already damaged left over acne red marks and scars) for a long time but then again i never had serious acne.PLus even if you dont masturbate for a for long time you wont expect a clear skin straight away,after so many years of damaging ourselves possibly, we cannot expect to fix this in 1 week,it should become a habbit -a routine- of eating rite ,of less masturbation,rite cleansing ,sleeping,water intake etc ..

Most of us keep whinning about acne but most of us dont really hate our acne to that extent,otherwise we would do anything to try and cure it even if there is any little doubt to it but we dont,we slack off and think it doesnt affect us.IF we doubt anything that this may cause acne to me-we should straight away stop it-this is what every doc says,rather than trying to find facts of medical research that does thing really cause acne.Im sorry to say this but even thiking of sex ,getting a hard-on or getting wet can cause hormonal imbalance cause everything is hormonal secretion, but obviously masturbation and orgasm etc releases intense sexual hormones which possibly is major reason in my opinion.I do believe that masturbation, menstruation, hormones are related with acne,just my opinion after observing and talking to many people with acne and my own experience.
