Masturbation & Acne? Are they related?

P'Gell P'Gell
How could masturbation cause acne and sex NOT cause acne? Arousal and orgasm are very similar in the two.

It doesn't make sense.

What a mean spirited jackass of a teacher! There is no causal link between masturbation and acne. One simply can't be related to the other since too many factors go into the making of acne. It's just stupidity on a criminal level.

OMG funny story: Ok so my sister was cutting her bangs in the bathroom sink one evening and she walks out and laughingly shows me her palms which are covered in hair. So I calmly look her in the eyes and tell her seriously, "I have to warn you that doing that will cause blindness." She throws back her head and laughs, turns around and walks into the wall. We pissed ourselves...

I just wonder if it's not true, how come she didn't have any parents complaining or how she didn't get in trouble or something. It's just a weird situation.

That's what I was thinking, but I had to see what other people on here thought about that. Haha. I guess my health teacher was just crazy.

More than likely because none of the kids told their parents, masturbation isn't exactly dinner table conversation. Besides it's not illegal to tell someone not to touch themselves, just immoral.

I believe this was an old wives tale promulgated to prevent kids from from masturbating. I was not overly inflicted by acne, but I masturbated then and now to relieve stress.

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

And yeah, that's bologna. Don't believe it.

That was what I was just thinking ^_^ I've always had pretty great skin though... and I masturbate... a whole lot.

I never heard this before, I guess there could be some truth to it, but I don't believe it.

I've heard of that. I don't know what it is about schools thinking they should make kids stop masturbating.

In my high school, our sex ed teacher told us that you shouldn't masturbate because, and I quote as best I can remember, "If you pull out your own splinters, you know how to do it perfectly, and you get the splinter every time without any pain or effort. Then, when someone comes along and wants to pull out your splinters for you, he or she can't do it as well as you do it yourself, and it hurts, and it makes it where you just want to pull out your own splinters."

I was pretty baffled at her whole metaphor. First of all, since when is an orgasm like a splinter?

I have heard this one before but I dont believe it at all. At least its not true for me - other wise I'd have acne galore....hehehe. I very rarely ever get zits. If I do - its more so around the time I eat alot of junkfood. But then I've heard thats a myth too.

Maybe your teacher was against masturbating, but wasn't allowed to express her views on it. Instead she decided to tell you that you'll get acne if you did lol.

I am trying to think of some logical explaination for this. You would think she would have given you some sort of scientific reason why or how this occurs.

Well that's a horrible sex myth to spread, and that teacher should be flogged. And on another note, that splinter metaphor upthread scares me with its ridiculousness.

I'm not sure it leads to disorders so much as it could be a symptom of the same root problem, but I'm not a psychiatrist.
