masturbation CONTRIBUTING to acne

Recommended Posts

i'm pretty certain masturbation contributes to acne, usualy when i dont do it for a few days my white heads dissapear, and when i start again i see white heads the very next day!!!!!

i think its worth it, stop masturbating for a few days and see what happens, u might be supprised

I would say it is 100% possible for masturbation to effect acne in some people. If you know the connection between DHT, androgens etc and if your acne is hormonal then yeah i would say it can definently effect your acne!!

Total load of crap ;) - There is no connection, it may cause a rise in hormones, which *could* effect it. Do you see spot/acne covered porn stars? Im not sure how i could say to my gf, no sex for a month, im waiting to see what happens :P

I dont really think there is any connection :)

im pretty sure it does effect acne..

and heres why-

'The root cause of acne is actually the failure of the body to break down, or metabolize, skin oil within the skin. But why does this happen? Well, your body uses a chemical called Coenzyme A to break down skin oil. To make Coenzyme A, it requires pantothenic acid (Vitamin B5) and two other chemicals. Your body can make the other two chemicals on its own, but the B5 must be supplied through diet. Your body also needs Coenzyme A to make sex hormones like testosterone and estrogen. So your body has to choose to use the available supply of Coenzyme A either to make sex hormones or to metabolize skin oil.' If your body is not making sex hormones (eg. having sex or having a wank) then it can use all the Coenzyme A to break down the skin oil.

if you havent already heard, vitamin B5 if a increasingly popular means of fighting acne, and i am currently using it, and continuing sexual activity :D (seems to be working).

Actually when i went on vacation and stopped doing it for a week or more...

I started breaking out...

the day i did it again, no new pimples came up the next day..

This was last summer, this summer I tried not doing it for a week and i did break out like i shoulda known. Then in the recent past 2 weeks, I've been consistently doing it, every other other day. But im extending the gap between slowly leading to less and less.

Masterbation does not cause acne, but it could relieve stress.

I think it's a problem only if you do it way too much, or inconsistently. :boohoo:

i would try it.... but thinking back

whenever i go to my friends cottage (no masturbation/sex for a week lol)

It seems my face is crazy broken out.

but when i get back im usually sick, so i go to the doctors, get some antibiotics,

a week later i look exactly the same

(note in that week i did it maybe ... 7 times lol)

so i would try this, but if it gets worse... i say its not worth it, its too risky.

and when u look around at school or w/e

just think. look at his face, hes clear, i bet he DOESNT masturbate... like seriously who doesnt lol?

thats my quesiton/answer :P

lol props to any guy that is seriously admitting they masturbate to a forum, I don't, but my acne does seem to flare up and turn really red after sex...but I assume I would just have rosy cheeks if the acne wasn't there

(I can't believe I'm saying this)

Okay, seriously during my early teens I had severe acne for around three years before I had ever done it, and once I began it didn't effect my acne one way or the other. Even during the times where I go two weeks without doing it or can't go two days without it, my acne breakouts/cycles are not related at all. So personally I don't give a d***.

There's your answer.
