Why masturbation causes acne?
Posted 19 December 2007 - 07:18 PM
Saying "Masturbation doesn't cause acne" like some sort of know it all. It's the same as anything else. For some it has an affect, for others it doesn't. Putting your foot down and saying "I don't even know you but you're wrong, I'm right" is stupid. If someone says it causes Acne for them, then believe it. I can vouch for this. I masturbated a lot last week and my skin looks like shit this week. I didn't change diet or anything. So why else would it happen?
I agree that it does cause acne. I believe mine is hormonal and that the masturbation increases flare ups due to hormonal increases. As simple as that. I like jerking off, who doesn't? But I'm going to try and stop doing it for a while to see if it works. But even then, there's usually more than 1 factor in acne. It's not just "you jerk off to much" or "you eat the wrong food". It's usually a combination of all three.
Fuck it, I'm seriously considering just buying accutane online. And if I could get some help in the matter, I'd probably have already done it.

think about it.
acne starts when you start puberty, which is also the same time that a guy can actually ejaculate (which I think is the biggest cause of the acne-masturbation relationship)
since your sperm/semen is made up of a variety of substances including vitamins and minerals, can't people realize that your body can potentially use some of the vitamins/minerals used to maintain your skin to make your sperm?
thats why i think overdoing it makes it worse and worse.
i think men past puberty have no say in this matter too

Lol too funny.. Ya i doubt masturbation causes acne. That is the same as saying sex causes acne. or masturbating causes hair on your palms.
You will have acne for many years until you realize that... merry christmas

The correlation between masturbating and breaking out is either illusory or there is a third variable at work.
Maybe it's a self-fulfilling prophecy. People who believe the myth that masturbating causes acne... masturbate, stress out that they will breakout after they get their rocks off, and end up breaking out because of all the worrying.
But if you really believe masturbation causes acne, stop masturbating. lol.
