Masturbation may be the key for some of you

I have now figured out what caused my acne : masturbation.

For 2 weeks, I was clear. No new breakouts; I was using ACV to treat my redmarks. For those 2 weeks, I thought : what was I doing different? I didnt masturbate.

I decided to do a test run (which i regret). The next week I decided to masturbate twice daily. That same week, 5 large pimples grew on my forehead. Coincidence? Don't think so; from what I can remember, I started breaking out after I started to masturbate to begin with.

Is it for everyone? Probably not; I believe my acne is more hormonal than anything, so this might be what's causing my breakouts, especially on my forehead.

Just a word to the wise.

Hi, I'm a female (FYI) and I was wondering if you think this same theory applies to every kind of sexual activity. Do you think that recieving an orgasm from a partner causes the same breakout effect as masturbation?

I'm also very clean. And I think I'd be willing to give up all sexual activity for a while if it is, in fact, the cause of my zits. Beginning now I will abstain from any sexual activity and keep you guys posted as to if it prevents get spots at all!

Good that you found something that seems to be the culprit or perhaps part of it for you. I agree, it's not the case with everyone.

Right, I'm really going to try to do this. I actually did it for a week once to see any effects and from what I can remember I didn't get any new spots in that time.

i think guys should just masturbate less anyway regardless! there really is no need to be at it more than once a day in my view! try being less hormonal!

leave internet porn and magazines alone and go outside, breathe in the fresh air, see the world!

Masturbation does increase hormone levels in the body of which some may help trigger oil production. It happens during the puberty years, sometimes on an off in adults.

It won't affect you forever.

Don't disregard it, it happens.

It's upto you whether you wish to abstain from it or not.

Some people don't believe masturbation causes acne, to an extent they are right, because it doesn't affect all people. And also masturbation isn't the cause of acne, it just "at times" exacerbates it.

I've been doing the opposite, I've been doing multi-orgasmic exercises, my skin hasn't been breaking out.

I've been masturbating less lately and my acne is at it's worst.

So i guess this means i need to masturbate more. :dance:

Does anyone actually know if masturbation causes acne?
