masturbating messes with your hormones which increase oily production. i guess people grow out of it? if you have read so many topics already, why are you asking this`?

- You might as well say that sex causes breakouts as well....I don't believe the problem lays with you rubbing one out smile.gif I think it could possibly be that you sweat while masturbating....I don't know if you wash your face after wards... but try it next time and see if there's a difference.

I know for me ejaculation doesnt cause acne no matter how many times I do it (instead it was a food group which caused my acne, dairy), but I do have very oily skin so that could be causing it. Does masturbating have any effect on oilyness in the skin?

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 saying, at least for males, don't change your habits because if you were to stop masturbating ejaculation would happen in your sleep anyways. As for females, I don't know, but I would guess that its not an issue for either sex one could control by abstaining from masturbation. Lots of people masturbate, all of them do not struggle with acne, use your best judgment.

My last couple sentences in the previous post were a joke by the way, everything in moderation, as they say.

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)




PS sorry for bad english

My guess is a change in your testosterone and a loss of zinc in semen. Supplement daily with 50mg-100mg of Zinc.

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
