Masturbation & Acne? Are they related?

AndroAngel AndroAngel
I don't believe it...
I have less breakouts when I masturbate regularly, although that might just be a me thing, not a general thing...

One has absolutely nothing to do with the other. Bizarre.

Any time a teacher makes a ludicrous claim like that, ask for their credible sources.

I can't believe you were told that by a TEACHER. She should be fired!

I've noticed that ALL (liberal) kids health/puberty books discount these kinds of rumors/myths. I definitely don't believe it, even though I'd heard of it.

I think it goes the opposite way actually... sweating improves your skin, gets rid of debris and bacteria thus reducing acne - so lets all masturbate more and get that glowing skin!

Yeah, that's how I feel about it. I bet that's just a wives tale made up to scare kids away from it. Heh.

I always assumed that whole "acne<-masturbation" was due to hormone spikes at puberty.

Never heard that in my life though I have heard the one about guys that masturbate a lot having hairy palms or going blind but I don't believe that either.
Your teacher was probably just trying to 'scare you straight' so you wouldn't even think about sex at all.

I masturbate every day and have been for the last 13 years. I get acne from time to time but i think thats related to sweat, diet and stress.

I've never heard this and don't believe it. I had/have acne not bad but more than normal and it's def not from masterbation it's from hormones with my period.

I can't believe this. If it did, I would have just been one big, walking, talking zit. xD I have heard this before though. I always assumed it was people who got really into it, sweated, then passed out without washing their face.

It's too bad that people in positions of influence have to take the fun out of self-love, ha, come on, really, teach something else and go rub one out in the bathroom between classes, what a prude!!

I would think that masturbation was a stress reliever that helped with acne. ?

What a funny teacher! The only way I could see these two being related is if acne prevented you from getting a partner therefore causing you to masturbate more. But that doesn't exactly make sense either.

Did she also said you would get hairy palms? I'm the same way though if a teacher tells me something I really want to believe it, nobody wants to feel like they are being fed lies for 8 hours a day in school.
