Well, I've never had a breakout after getting laid, but since the girls I whant to be in relationships with typically are the ones who arn't interested, I can't really say that I've gone through a "tons of sex" period. Sex is involved with both hormones that increase acne and hormones that are good for the skin. I guess the take home message is tat we shouldn't start using people just to treat our skin.

Moved to nutrition/holistic health.

it depends. For the most part there are no correlations between sex/masturbation with pimples and skin; but for some people, like me, it provoke breaks out and big pimples after few hours =( maybe there is no cure for me ( and others similar)

I'm a 20 year old male and sex/ beatin off has never had an effect for me. Perhaps it depends on the type of acne you have.

People that get acne after sex/masturbation should look into a condition called miliaria rubra (heat rash).

Let's not forget that hormonal fluctuations can cause acne, so for some of you, maby you just need to get used to it.

It doesn't work that way. You are looking at the issue from a hormones <-> skin relation, but I suggest a different connection - heat rash. Especially if acne appear within hours after sex/masturbation. Wouldn't your balls be totally covered with acne knowing that that's the place hormones are produced?

Anyway, here's the pathway: You have sex/masturbate -> your body temperature rises -> you start to sweat more -> your sweat glands are plugged/obstructed -> sweat cannot exit to the surface and causes damage inside epidermis -> acne forms

This is a great point considering that acne starts under the skin well before it gets to the surface.
If it occurs in a matter of hours, it's probably a rash.

I'll put it this way, if sex was BAD for your skin no one would care because well... Come on, it's sex.

I mean would anyone really give up sex for life, if it did have an effect?

Yeah, it took me a while to connect my sudden acne with this but I managed to do it. At that time I also thought there was a food connection to them, because they would appear after I ate a certain meal. But, it was not because of the food itself but because of food's temperature. Hot soup, for example, increases your body temperature and body starts to sweat to cool it off thus inducing the heat rash if your sweat glands are obstructed.
