Masturbation & Acne? Are they related?

Acne and masturbation? Lol. I'm doin' fine, no correlation!

First Correlation does not imply causation. Second, this is one more example of people trying to perpetuate negative attitudes towards sex and pleasure.

Here, Here sister! If a teacher told my son that I would be HOT and in someone's office at school!

My son used to get freaked out by my very nonchalant way I talk about sex around him. Doesn't phase him now.

I have gone as far as taking him to Wal-Mart and Safeway (before he went out of town for a week to visit old friends, including his girlfriend) and showed him where the condoms are located in each store, how much they cost, how to use them properly and we made sure he had some with him, just in case. He is well aware that we are in no way shape or form raising any more children and certainly not someone else's.

I just like that it was somehow supposed to matter whether it was our hand or someone else's. Like if I could get girls to jerk me off 3 times a day instead of doing it myself, I would have had skin like porcelain.

I agree! I am still prone to acne too, but have noticed the past few months that my skin has been much clearer! I AM chalking this up to masturbation/orgasm. (My New's Years resolution was to have "one a day")

I would say that it's false in the sense that there is a direct connection. However, sweating does cause acne, so there could be a relation there.

Ok, here is where any correlation between the two lies.... you will likely get acne if you masturbate incessantly and ...... wipe your hands on your face shortly thereafter with no washing in between or afterwards. As vegan guy pointed out, sweating and not washing your face afterwards could also increase your chances of acne. Moral of the story? WASH YOUR FACE WHEN YOU GET GROSS STUFF ON IT. Ok I am not trying to say cum is gross..... just that cum mixed with either dick and ball or vag sweat is. WASH YOUR FACE!

Acne is caused by hormone levels increasing the skins oil levels. I have heard of masturbation and also chocolate as a cause, but that is just guessing from the past. I don't believe they actually have pinpointed the very causes yet.

I masturbate more than any of my female friends (usually two to three times a day) and have almost perfect skin. I never get zits.

Maybe something to do with the testosterone levels, maybe that people get sweaty when they masturbate and don't wash their face, but I think it has MUCH more to do with lies that try to scare kids away from exploring sexuality. BOOO!

Just more church influenced anti-masturbation propaganda like going blind, the roof caving in and causing homosexuality.(yes, the opposition claims masturbation causes homosexuality)

I think she was just trying to scare kids off of masturbation. Like like those crazies who push abstinence. I mean it's your choice, it's your body. But i've never heard any connection to acne and masturbation. Sounds weird.

The only correlation between the two is sweat generation leading to pimples, which can be avoided if you shower regularly. You don't get any more pimples from masturbating than from taking a walk.

If its true which its not, then it would only happen to teens, other wize there would be alot of 30, 40, 50 and older men with a lot of acne, including my self.

He: I've heard this before and I noticed when we have sex more often, I do break out more. I think it's a loose correlation in my case so in no way does it prove causation. It's just an interesting pattern.

She: I've never heard of that and I definitely haven't noticed a pattern. I think your health teacher was on crack!

correlation not causation
