yes, and I have also acquired the same results. More than once a day really does contribute to acne, I mean.. Acne can be caused by hormonal imbalances and masturbating would just add more hormones in your system if I am not mistaken.. So I dont see how it would "not" contribute to acne.. However I have also noticed that sleep is really vital against acne. I always got 5 hours of sleep everyday, I would go to bed at 1 am and wake up at around 6 am.. so I started going to be earlier at 10pm and my acne has been reduced by a lot. I also only eat healthy foods.

Its probably just from you sweating. Id rather not starve myself from it just to have a few less spots.

Masturbation physically isn't much different than sex, and if it caused acne, all porn stars would be covered in acne.

i've actually tried this for the last week and i haven't really broken out. just a couple of new pimples, but they're small. wanking off always leads to me breaking out w/ big pimples the next day or next couple of days. i don't plan to give up masturbation by any means, but i have no idea what to do until i give in. i'm in about a week to a week and a half w/o masturbation so i don't know how much more i can last :wacko:

I"ve heard lots of times that it doesnt cause acne. My own beliefs would lead me to conclude that acne is caused by something unnatural. Maybe something toxic in the air or food we eat. The thing is though that I've tested this theory and I'm convinced that I do break out when i masterbate. I understand the post that some people put. Everyone has sex and everyone masturbates. The only thing I can think of is that some people with acne prone skin for whatever reason break out when they masterbate. I dislike the acne so much that I'm actually thinking of even avoiding sex with girls.

Guys I think its either a coincidence that you break out afer masterbating, or because of letting sweat dry on your skin. The actual act of masterbation/sex is mostly controled by your sympathetic nervous system - NOT HORMONES. Hormones are involved in sperm production, which is a constant process that is not effected by the frequency of sex etc. So don't think your throwing your hormones out of wack cos your not. In fact, masterbating or having sex may be a good thing because it relieves stress. Stress = increased testosterone levels = breakouts.

Masturbation causes a surge in hormones which in effect takes our hormone balance out of control leading to breakouts. But nevertheless, its a natural thing to do.

I dont think it causes acne. I went a few months without masterbating (It was a bet hehe) and still broke out. I guess it all depends on the person.

Also Ive heard lots of times that masterbation doesnt cause acne. Im gonna have to call Loveline and ask Dr. Drew on Monday

i might even have too agree to this theory. i had minor breakouts before heading off overseas. I went on holidays for 30 days. i didnt masturbate for those 30 days. Clear.100% clear. I came back. Went like crazy.sometimes 3 times a day. I broke out for the worst.... I might give it a week too see how it goes.

masturbating lowest testosterone levels.

Testosterone is a contributing factor to acne.

Masturbating relieves stress.

Holding in masturbating aggravates stress hormones and they go crazy.
