Masturbation & Acne? Are they related?

There could be if you masturbated, then rubbed your juices all over your face and left it to dry, clogging your pores.

//in the don't believe it at all group unless given some good scientific proof

there's the correlation that both tend to start around the same part of someone's development cycle. That said, masturbation does not lead to acne

A question that may be related to this is....was your health teacher religious? Because they may have been making something like that up to make you not...blasphemous or something.

Well, I could use myself as proof. I had terrible, awful acne from age 12. The first time I masturbated was about two months before my 18th birthday, though I have never been a frequent practitioner. My acne cleared up when I was 20, not because of masturbation, but because I learned how to take care of my skin properly.

I didn't mean to say I believed people who masturbate more have more acne, but I know for a fact that there is a correlation at least with me. Mine is a lot better when I'm masturbating often.

yup! This, and actually masturbation and sex is GOOD for your skin, it increases blood flow to the face (blushing!)

Weird. Stress, junk food, hormones, and sleep habits are more related to acne. you might masturbate because you're stressed or hormones (or sleep lulz) but the health teacher is going the wrong way here.

Well, when I was a teen I didn't masturbate and I had tons of acne. Now I do and only have an occasional break out. Sounds like to me acne is caused by teenage hormones and exacerbated by stress.

The only connection I can think of is maybe just correlation... puberty and masturbation, of course!

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

Acne can be caused my stress...So I think if acne and masturbation were anywhere related it would be that masturbating can relieve stress which means not as many zits?

The only connection I could think of is, the more orgasms, the less acne, because you aren't sexually frustrated which is a type of stress and stress does increase acne. Otherwise, I've never heard this before and don't believe it.

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, ...
did she also say it caused you to go blind? and then you looked at blind people and said "wow you must have touched yourself alot!!!!"

joking
