Masturbation & Acne? Are they related?

sexysweetieshan sexysweetieshan
Okay, so when I was in 8th grade, I remember a health teacher telling me that kids who masturbate more frequently have a lot more acne. I think she ruined my view on it, because anytime I saw a kid with lots of acne, I kept thinking to myself, "I know what you do in your spare time". Although, I always doubted it, because that just doesn't make sense. Then again, I wanted to believe it, because she was a teacher. So what's your opinion? Have you ever heard of this before? Do you believe it?

There could be some relation, but masturbating does not cause acne. The reason I say it could be related is because acne can be caused by high testosterone levels, which could also increase your sex drive.

That's an urban legend old spinster teachers tell kids so they won't touch their genitals and go to hell.

If masturbation causes acne, then so does sex, and Paris Hilton has clear skin.

What a totally fucked up, reactionary, and unethical thing to tell kids!

I do not believe it at all.

I would freak the fuck out if my kids were lied to like this.

Sorry, but I feel really strongly about educating kids in a truthful and practical way.

That sounds totally bizarre and this is the first I've heard of it. For me, personally, masturbation actually seems to make my skin happier because I tend to break out when I'm stressed, and what's more stress-relieving than an orgasm?

Agreeee! Furthermore, I would only think masturbation could help acne. I don't have acne but stress can definitely make me break out...and guess what helps stress?

LMAO!!! I seriously wondered if she told us that to make us not want to do it or whatever, but I guess I somewhat trusted she knew what she was talking about since she was a health teacher. Haha.

Yeah I definitely think kids should also be educated truthfully. Don't be sorry at all! It's good to have strong opinions sometimes. I don't care how they teach things in school, but my kids are going to get the completely honest truth AT HOME!

That makes very good sense actually. I never can tell if my acne is worse with masturbation or not. I just always worried it could have something to do with it because of what that teacher said.

Well I don't know if it's true or not, but it seems pretty crazy! LOL Though I had bad acne growing up and I masturbated a lot, but now I masturbate more, and no acne, so who knows, it would be interesting to find the real answer out though!

Yeah it is pretty crazy. I was hoping since this is like a "sex" community, that someone would know the correct answer about it.

How absurd - not even sugar and chocolate are linked to acne. Acne is a bacterial problem and yes it's linked to testosterone. Cleanliness and antibiotics are the keys to treatment.

I think this comes from the old reaction that if you scare people enough they won't masturbate.

The small increase in testosterone (if there even IS one, which I am not sure it happens) during masturbation is not enough to cause acne.

Like someone else said, it goes along with the "hairy palms, insanity, blindness" and other bullshit about self love.

I heard of the hairy palms thing, but not the acne.

I have heard that one before, but it does sound a little like the hairy palms myth!

But maybe there is a bacteria connection? I had pretty bad acne for a while as a teenager and my doctor told me to make sure I controlled any habits of touching my face (which I did when stressed out or nervous). He also suggested keeping hair away from my face so stuff wasn't being spread around. Haha, I did masturbate a lot, too...wouldn't tell him that, though.

Our bodies have all sorts of funky stuff on them. I don't care if it's natural! I can't wait to be a cyborg.

If anything I would suggest the opposite is true... Stress definitely helps trigger acne for me and many other people in the world, masturbation helps relieve stress... therefore, masturbation helps make your skin beautiful. The end! LOL

I know! Like after I heard that and I was in school, I saw all the kids with acne thinking, like "I know what you do all the time", and then all the "cool kids" who didn't have acne, I was like, how do you not masturbate. Haha.
