Why masturbation causes acne?

201 posts in this topic

Masturbation, at least for a male, is important because when the testes are not used to being operated, they tend to shut down and stop functioning, sometimes permanently. This is a problem people get into when they have a vasectomy operation performed. After time passes and they wish to reverse the operation for whatever reason, the testes sometimes don't turn back on and they cannot produce sperm. In other words, they cannot produce children.

For men who were to stop masturbating, you would start having wet dreams more often, the term used for ejaculation when you are asleep, though you might not notice.

Not masturbating wouldn't work for a guy, your body will do it when you sleep in order to keep things in working order.

If I were you I wouldn't worry about it. In fact, I'd do it as much as possible. Its good for you. Speaking of which, I g2g...

I have often wondered about this. Of course I don't think masturbation is the all presiding mother gaia *cause* of acne, but couldn't it be a factor? People have no problem saying hormones and hormonal changes/fluctuations often exacerbate or relieve acne flareups...hormones set in motion many far reaching reactions in our bodies...for example a woman's acne can often follow the path of her menstrual cycle...and isn't stress often linked to hormone changes? Isn't menstruation linked to hormone changes? Puberty linked to hormone changes? And hormone changes are often (not always) linked to acne in some people? I don't think it's a 1-1 correlation (and definately not a sin, lol) but I believe it could be a factor one should take into account before prematurely dismissing it. If the people who keep saying there is absolutely no link to acne and masturbation have any studies they could link me to, I'd be grateful.

I'm all for timed masturbation, because what I have noticed at least with me is that after finishing, my face starts to feel a bit oily within the next half hour. So if and when I do, I'll be taking my nightly shower within the next hour.

i personally think its not real.... there are too many possible causes and variables with acne so i think its pretty ridiculous when people claim they have found the exact thing that causes acne. if its that simple, then stop masturbating forever. even if you do this, it probably wont even take a month before you break out again. go ahead and try it, you will see that masturbation isnt causing your acne. its just like people with the water only regimen, it catches up to them sooner or later. could masturbation be a FACTOR in aggravating acne ?? yes, but its most likely very small and not worth worrying about. stick to what we know forsure helps acne like gently cleansing your face and never touching, picking or popping. i think that everyone is getting really off track when it comes to treating acne.

It makes sense that there's a correlation between the act and the disorder...but it really depends on the person I guess! What works for one may not work for someone else. Look at this site,there's hundreds of acne sufferers that all use hundreds of different methods!

If you are worried about hormones, stop consuming dairy products. Even organic dairy products contain hormones because the cows are lactating and the hormones are excreted into the milk, as with all lactating mammals.

Also if you really want to know if there is a link between masturbation and acne, you should ask a dermatologist about it, they have far deeper schooling in dermatology than the average acne.org guinea pig.

That's debatable. While cow's milk breaks a lot of people out,goat's milk can be tolerated by those same people(sometimes)

Im not talking about everyone but this is my case and my problem : after sexual activities or masturbation, i ve got a lot of pimples. I havent acne, in fact, if i dont masturbate or do sex, i havent got any pimples. Dont say that this is impossible, because is the reality. I am 20 and i ve got this problem since about 10 years and i have cheched it with doctors and specialists dermatologies. I did a lot of cures and all types of it : cremes, soaps, pills, etc... but the problem begin when i got sexual activities.

I dont want that u can solve the problem because any doctor has do it, but i would know the cause and why this happen.

In october i have an endocrinologic visit, hoping that it could help me (even i suppose not)

Really try hard and go for at least 2 weeks with no sex or masturbation. It's hard, but it may be real worth it after. If you can go longer for those 2 weeks, keep going and your hormone levels might regulate. And the Zinc may definitely help too.

Never mind the masturbating, i know the real reason we have acne and from what ive just done probally the cure for the most if not all people,

Its because we are having digestive problems even though we dont know it some peoples bodies are just not effective and getting rid of waste fast enough or complete enough.

This is just one half of the reason the other im afraid is candida our diets cause this to manifests punch holes through our intetinal walls and what do you know toxins enter the blood stream which then come through youre sebum glands bloke pores and allow p acnes to breed and cause inflamation etc....

now in between all this there is like a miny war going on in their remember more than half of youre immune system lies in youre intestines bowel the whole digestive tract, and when we keep bombarding it with junk food and crap the bad bacteria (candida) feed and feed and grow bigger in population so much so that the bad bacteria take control down there and bring youre immune system with other symptoms including acne

oily skin my freinds is simply waste and toxins on youre skin which is disgusting i know BUT!

Here is the best bit you can fight back and even beat it gone with a weapon

that weapon being YOGURT PROBIOTIC WITH LIVE CULTURES

Why because it has much good bacteria which is very beneficial to us in many ways being the disposel of waste properly boosting the immune system right up and fighting of bad bacteria and taking back over

Now for the love of god please try this eating something like one big tub a day or two small tubs dailly and you should see great benifits , Im talking from Expereince acne almost gone now and i started this a week and half ago, i noticed after two days skin oil wasnt as oily red parts of my face lightining up and then im here now almost free of acne

Bottom line Give it a go it is incredible

thx a lot. i would get zinc but my doctor refuses. How can i do =(

Well, not sure where you are. But in the states, you can get zinc supplements at any corner pharmacy / drug store. You could buy some online if it resorts to that.

I'm sexually active and I take zinc. I too definitely notice more breakouts when I'm intimate. The zinc has seemed to curb it somewhat. Although I'm on antibiotics and Dan's regimen as well so can't say definitely with all these variables.

It's incredibly easy to get a zinc supplement over the counter if you're in the USA. Just go to your nearest health food store or supplement supplier. You don't need a doctor's prescription. Where do you live?

Nah, I don't believe in the zinc theory. Sorry, it's just not that simple. It's all about the hormones, not a simple mineral called zinc.

I tried the 20 day w/o masturbation thing. The thing is we might even produce more testosterone when you're preoccupied with sex and can't release. It didn't work for me.

And really, even if it did work, you can't go without masturbating for long. lol. It will tell you something tho. it will confirm that acne is probably b/c of too much testosterone if you didn't break out. So do the experiment if u want, but do it so you know what your imbalance is =)


My Current Regimen:

Carleys Clear and Smooth 5% BP in morning

Carleys Clear and Smooth soap in morning and evening
