my skin was best when I was really busy, and was too tired to masturbate. Coincidence? Maybe. Also my skin looked good when I masturbated at night, right after putting on BP. Who knows. I'm trying this out right now - drinking tea with licorice root, it's supposed to make you less horny.

I just talked with a skin doctor. He is 100% sure there is no link between masturbation and acne. eusa_clap.gif

[color=#3333FF]Here is my short story..... I had absolutely no acne problems from grade 8-11. Then grade 12 came and I started having sex almost every day. After the very first time I had sex, I noticed that my skin became acne prone. People kept on telling me that my acne problem was just because I was a teenager with hormones, and that the acne will go away eventually. I ignored the problem and kept having sex and masturbated. When I didn't have sex I must have masturbated about 8 times a day or more (sometimes around 30 times from friday-sunday). This caused my acne problem to get worse and worse. I used a lot of products including: ProActiv, Oxypads, Neutrogena, Clean & Clear, etc. I used ProActiv for 2 months, Oxypads for a month, and other products for monthly periods. These products did not make my acne get better, and only caused scarring. One day a woke up and smelt the coffee, I got rid of about 70 lesbian dvd's that I had, that's right, I picked them up and threw them in the garbage can, and I decided to stop masturbating. I thought to myself, "....I never masturbated when I was a kid, so why should I have to now". Then I thought to myself, "It's getting in my way of doing sports, going out with friends, and not to mention watching the computer screen is not too good for your eye-sight". I have followed certain healthy decisions, and now I have no acne problems. Here are some steps that I follow, that should help you with acne. Steps are in the order of importance, in my opinion.

Step 1 - Get at least 8 hours of sleep everyday, so your body can heal properly (your body heals while you sleep)

Step 2 (eating and drinking habits) - Drink lots and lots of water. Don't drink cold water; it creates a shock to your body. Instead, drink coldish-warm water. I know you may not like this temperature of water, but hopefully you'll get used to it. p.s. - boiled water that has cooled down to a drinkable temperature is the way to go. Do not eat deep fried foods and do not eat from fast food restaurants. Don't use teflon pans to cook (look it up on the internet about why not to). Eat lots of vegetables and fruits. Don't use microwaves, ...I swear, there's gotta be something wrong about a pizza that is supposed to take 22 minutes in a 400 degrees Fahrenheit oven, yet takes 1 minute and 30 seconds in the microwave. Plus, microwaves deplete nutrients out of your food.

Step 3 - Stop Masturbating

Step 4 - Don't touch your face, unless you have just washed your hands. Not touching your face will probably really hard for you to do, but try and see if you can pull this step off. This also includes not picking you nose. Do not pick or pop any type of anything of your face (pimples, etc.), it will just cause scarring.

Step 5 - Wash your face with dove soap (with a clean wash cloth) in the morning, at night, during a shower/bath, and after you've worked up a sweat. You have a very slim chance of being allergic to Dove soap because it is hypo-allergenic. Also, Dove soap works well on the rest of your body as well.

Step 6 - Keep the area where you live and sleep clean. This includes washing your bed sheets and pillow cases, or else you will become more prone to acne.

....If you are someone who doesn't follow any of these steps and still has no acne problems, that's just because you have dna that promotes the healing of your skin and pores. Most people don't have this type of dna structure though, and require the above steps to stay acne free.

Yes everytime you ejaculate you get 5 spots + 1 cyst in addition to any further ejaculations the same day. Your visual acuity will decrease by an average of 0.000052% per ejacule and your willay will shrink to a length 0f 1.5nanometers by the time youre 34 years old.

Masturbation will definitelynot caused acne, it just a myth. In fact it the opposite,guys need to release themselve from stress by masturbation. You keep it all inside, your stress has no ways out of your body but to get thru your skin, does that make sense to you.

Acne are caused by sun,people who took steriod,hormone pill and some are genetic. Cmon, go and maturbate now.....

there might be a benefit to masturbating fast, rather than slow. When you sit for 5 hours looking at porn, while maintaining an erection (as I used to do as a teen) your stress levels are always up. On the other hand, masturbating in a minute or two is better, because there's less stress. Speaking of masturbating..

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.

The more sex i have, the clearer my skin! It makes me happy. I think it is the shame causing the acne, not the actual act of masturbating.

I was masturbating yesterday and the strangest thing happened. I have been on doxycycline for 3 days and 1 gram of b5 for one day and suddenly have have no sensation in my pubic area as well as hardly any fluid coming out. Has this ever happened to anyone? I still have libido, but just no sensation? What the heck is going on?

Do you see young children with acne problems, ....I don't think so. You start getting acne problems when you reach puberty or start experimenting (masturbation). This is when you start to get acne and it continues to get worse unless you treat it properly.

***Good for those people who don't get acne from masturbation, they are just lucky (and probably stay active). I don't care what what doctors and skin doctors say, they lie a lot of the time. They tell you that you need pills and drugs, and medicine; it's how they have their jobs and how they make their money. You don't see any other creature on earth taking drugs do you (unless we give it to them). Do you see animals having problems and needing face stuff to get rid of their acne problems, I don't think so. Yet, we are mammals, are we not? We are supposed to be the smartest mammal on the Earth, yet we have the most health problems, I wonder why, could it be that we are using drugs to heal ourselves and not going outside as much as we should be going outside?

How 'bout you watch and learn what any given mammal that is healthy does and doesn't do. They don't have any health problems, so if you follow what they do (excluding some of the food they eat, like raw meat) your face should start to clear up within 4 months.

-They don't masturbate
-They drink lots of water
-They don't constantly pick at their face
-They don't eat junk food, greasy food, or eat from fast food restaurants
-They stay active (or most of them any ways)
-Most of them are outside in the fresh air (excluding some pets)
-They don't sit around on a computer all day
-They do have sex, but not too frequently

Try out all of what I have said in my two quotes for 3 months, and I mean 100% of what I said, and if your acne does not start to heal by the end of 3 months please send a reply.

I would also like to see a physical study of two teenagers which do not masturbate and never have before in which both of them have no skin problems and are the same gender. One of them starting to masturbate for 3 months, at least 3 times a day. The other one not masturbating at all for 3 months. We shall see what the test results show. The environment must also be exactly the same for the two subjects. They both must also stay outside for the same amount of time and both stay inside for the same amount of time. One could read a book and the other one could be doing you know what. They both must eat the same food, and do everything the same except for the masturbation part. Otherwise the experiment will not work. This is how an experiment must be, otherwise it is an invalid experiment. This is how an experiment must be in Biology and Chemistry.

I have come to a conclusion that it must be the stress caused from masturbation, and not the masturbation itself. So essentially masturbating may or may not increase your acne, depending on if it is causing you stress or not; for example, if you constantly have to listen for parents coming near your room while your masturbating, of course that's gonna be stressful. If you are free of any one around you and you know they are not going to be back for a while, than maybe masturbating will not give you acne.

Also, most of doctors really just want to help you out, but some of them just want your money, or some of them may just not realize that you don't need drugs to heal people; all you need is to stay healthy, clean, and have a healthy diet.

We're also the only mammals that don't grow hair out of the sebaceous glands on our faces. That just might have something to do with it.

Wellness matters, but tell some kid with polio that drugs won't help him and he only needs to get out more. Do you have any source whatsoever for the claim that humans have more health problems than other mammals?

The sebaceous glands do not become active until puberty. Shit, you'd know that just from reading more posts here. At least do some modicum of research before coming in here speaking like you're the A1 expert with the answer to all of our problems, to hell with medical science.
