I did this for six months (yes, I went six months without masturbation). I have to say, it probably did help with acne. My face was pretty clear, and I started back recently and am in the worse shape of my life. I should probably start back.

Hi, guys. I split this topic so that the posts would be from 2015 to whenever. I've been relapsing daily; haven't even been trying to refrain. Day 1 will begin tomorrow.

for anyone's interested in my experiment:
decided to stop masturbating from 18th October 2014. Couldn't control myself one day,so I did it.It was 14th April 2015.That was my longest streak.
Talking about acne,did I see any changes during this period?You bet,I did.
I started getting cystic acne which eventually caused scarring and till this day I still get cysts.I'm currently on accutane for just over a month now.
DID stopping masturbation cause my acne?NO it didn't. In fact,It was my acne progressing in severity.But can stopping masturbation stop acne?
I don't think so.

Hey guys, what's up :) Long time no see, haha, so this is how I've been doing, Started a streak 2nd January (new year promises, you know) got till mid February about 40 days streak and guess what, skin got soooo much better you have no idea, then I relapsed and started going downhill until 5th march, 16 days ago I restarted and now I  am here in this streak, my skin is pretty much 90% clear but I'm sure it won't stay like this a lot more time, i think it cleared this much because some medication I was taking like 1 week agocuz I got sick, but I don't mind if acne comes back, it isn't as bad as it was when I came to this post the first time back in November. Pretty much not masturbating has only helped me with everything in my life, school, hobbies, friends, my crush, everything trust me, hope we can all achieve great streaks and have nice skins :D Ty to Cp for splitting the experiment in two parts, this way it'll be a lot more organised, if you guys want you can read this post here, it's really helpful, Cya till next update and stay strong bros:D https://www.reddit.com/r/NoFap/comments/4ba9zd/you_suck_at_clocks_lets_learn_to_tell_the_fking/

yes aces!!!! this is like what i needed to hear- what ive been needing to hear. again i have been having mini sprees. face is a lot better. very few active pimples. in fact my face is pretty much flat, like the bumps are gone. red marks slowly fading. if i can get on a big streak, I will be completely clear most likely. but aces major props and respect bro. 40 days is insane. what a GOAT. gluck man just dont watch porn even if u mb. 

both u and cp have gone 40 days haha... we all started together so it only makes sense that i get 40 days too... one day i will get there. one day:)

thx for the feedback. just a thought that maybe it might not have worked cuz ur trying so much different products and solutions and stuff. but idk. for me and i think for aces too, we both know that this mb issue has like a friken one to one correlation to acne.  For me, when i relapse, my complexion gets all bad like all the life and healthiness gets sucked outta my skin and new pimples crop up in the next few days. but when i get a mini streak of even 3-4 days by the end of that short period, those bumps have disappeared and not much new ones arise.

Is anybody still out there? Our journey is still not over lads, I needto know that im not alone in this :D 
A quick update: i think my acne has disappeared, ive found the lifestlye I have to take to avoid most of it, but now my problem is the red marks - the hyperpigmentation, ughhh. Now about masturbation, ive made it an habit by now, it's been what 6 months? how time flies, now i just dont care as often about masturbation and im glad that my 6 months younger me decided to start this, it's been having a lot of positive impact in my life, so yea keep up the good job bros!! :D need your answers to keep me motivated and on track! let's communicate a bit guys

Hey guys,

I'll be joining as well. I know there are so many doubters, but I know for certain ejaculation causes acne for me. I've done so many tests on myself that it forced me out of denial. I know ejaculation acne is a rare cause which is why there's so many people who doubt it.

Anyways, I'm currently starting day 3.

Good job, AcesNation

Starting today. Day 1
I stopped taking cold showers for a while, but I'm back on track.

CP. - I do cold showers (well more like cool showers lately) as well and I find it helps retain natural oils and doesn't leave me super dry like a hot shower. It's supposed to be good for your skin and hair. 

Day 4
Going to the gym. Does anyone else have way more energy around day 7? Something I've noticed for myself.

Day 2 (was tempted today)
I view it like this: if you can take a cold shower, you can resist a stupid temporary sexual urge.
-
I read that testosterone levels increase around that day.

hey guys my acne is gone. i also had the red marks for a while but they've mostly faded.  I think it takes around 2 months for them to completely fade unless its just the small tiny pimples that hardly do any damage.  I don't know if i should attribute my skin clearing to no mb cuz I still have been doing it although not as much as before. keep going tho.

Hey ninjection, what do you attribute to your skin clearing up? If you honestly didn't change a thing, maybe you're one of those that just grows out of it.

Day 8
This next week is going to be rough...

Hey guys what's up! Summer is here and now it is the time guys! Currently on an 8 days streak! Last two weeks I slipped and ended up masturbating like 3 times, some pimples appeared but they are already healing pretty well, been exercising like crazy and my skin is looking more shiny, sweat really helps it guys. That's all for now keep up the good work bros!

I've also discovered that over-ejaculation results in cystic acne. Lately I've been doing it way too often and my skin is getting worse and worse. My s/o wants to have sex once or twice a week anyway, which doesn't usually give me any problems, so it's the masturbation that has to stop. If I'm not completely clear by the end of July, I'll go back to using the Regimen indefinitely, I just can't handle any more scars.
I could use some accountability, that's why I'm posting here. I've already ejaculated twice today, so tomorrow will be Day 1.
