I know plenty of guys and girls who masturbate frequently and don't have acne problems at all... that's like saying sex would increase acne. If you don't shower I'm sure it would xD cuz of the oils, sweat etc. that builds up

That's so stupid and untrue. There's no scientific evidence to support that at all. haha

Well, you do sweat a lot during masturbation, so if you don't clean yourself afterwards, it could cause acne. It's not really a direct cause though.

This.

This could be true, but you'd have to make your way around to it like. Acne is caused by perspiration left on the skin to clog pores, masturbation can make you perspire, thus clogging the pores and leaving you with acne, therefore masturbation causes acne.

It's not really true though, I don't think. Same goes for the whole you'll go blind or have hairy palms myths.

I masturbate on a consistent daily basis and I have no more acne than you can expect is normal. One or two a month. Your teacher was obviously using scare tactics.

I'm not surprised that somebody would say that, but I would be pissed off is a teacher - who is supposed to be educating my children - told them this.

I want my children to grow up and have happy and healthy sexual experiences (just VERY VERY far in the future LOL).

If there were any link, I would imagine it would go the other way. I would imagine regular orgasms would help flush out the toxins in your body? I really have no clue, but it sounds good - right?

This doesn't make any sense to me whatsoever. Sure, there's something with hormones and acne but not masturbation and acne! Hell, the world would be a lot more acne prone, then, I think....

I would say that, that couldn't possibly be true. I would actually think that it could have the opposite effect considering that it is a STRESS REDUCER and not a stress CREATOR. I am no doctor or anything, but somehow I think that HAS to be false information. I mean less stress means less acne right? I know every-time i break out it is when I am under a lot of stress.

If masturbation causes acne, then so does sex, and Paris Hilton has clear skin.
Lol, you're so funny.

My daughter had sever acne and she refused to masturbate. I took her to the doctor (OBGYN) and he put her on birth control. That helped quite a bit.

The only thing that would make sense to me about masturbation causing acne is the skin getting oily/sweaty and not being rinsed off after a heavy masturbation session. Otherwise, it just doesn't make any sense.

I know that when I'm super stressed I get acne. It really sucks.
