guys, personally i saw no real connection, and i did this experiment some years back, and i'll never do it again.. i almost called the ambulance.
BUT there are resons for some connections:
1. physical stress causes acne, and also mental but not sure. masturbation is demanding a bit physically. but sex with a partner is even more. i had a few years of a lot of sex with my girlfriend and i think my acne got a little worse.
2. it seems that hormones are taking many vitamin B2 & A resources and probably many minerals between others. sperm also is demanding of zinc, etc these B2+A vitamins were also needed for sebum quality. so start taking them as supplements and half of the "masturbation" issue is resolved.
for the other half, take the effort into account while masturbating, or having sex, or other physical activities. and stop making it sound like in the dark ages, where masturbation got u blind..
btw, i didn't start masturbating until i was 17y and i had acne by then. going to the gym is probably the worst you can do for acne. oh and this physicall effort is also very demanding of vit A+B..
