#1149234 Why masturbation causes acne?

I think the obvious conclusion is that if you test it by quitting the habit for a while and it clears you up a bit, then this applies to you, and you should accept the correlation, even if you do not understand the exact semantics of things.  Obviously since people are different, others may not be affected by the habit, and they are lucky.

I saw a piece of advice from specialists in skin care.  When asked "can masturbation aggravate acne?" their response was:

Yes! it does.
Over-masturbation or excessive sex causes excessive stress (dopamine-adrenalin convesion) and excessive DHT (testosterone-DHT conversion) that trigger ACNE outbreaking.
Excessive sex causes an excessive testosterone-DHT conversion.
The hormone DHT level is one of the main factors causing ACNE outbreaking.
The liver enzyme 5-alpha reductase is responsible for converting testosterone into DHT.
Your sexual activity and the testosterone-DHT conversion are correlated and stimulated each other, until you reach a point of temporary sexual exhaustion. At the point of temporary sexual exhaustion, your ACNE outbreaking reaches its peak while sexual energy suddenly drops to a trough..

So I was wondering, has anybody actually tried quitting the masturbation for a month? and recorded the results?
