first time hearing of this

There could be some relation, but masturbating does not cause acne. The reason I say it could be related is because acne can be caused by high testosterone levels, which could also increase your sex drive.
Agreed

I feel like you must have known to some extent that a lot of people probably haven't heard of this myth before, if you posted that as an option/ the first option.

I've never heard of it before.

I don't think I ever thought about who was masturbating or not, but I did wonder who was having sex with others

I have never heard that one. I've heard the one about hairy palms and the one about going blind, though. It used to scare me as a kid because I was afraid that people would be able to tell, though I didn't believe it would affect the state of my palms or my eyesight.

COMPLETELY false! Acne can be caused by stress, and masturbation RELIEVES stress. I can't imagine this being true.

The only way I could think of this being true would be if after masturbating you touched your face and whatever remnants of sex clogged your pores. Otherwise this sounds like bunk!

That...what the hell? I never heard of that, it's not true, your teacher was insane. o.O I don't see how it's related o.o Must go think about it now.

WEIRD! Sounds like your teacher was just trying to keep kids from masturbating. Wonder why? Maybe that whole "it's a sin" belief...

Sounds like something someone would say to get you to stop masturbating.

I think I heard everything possible to discourage masturbation.

Masturbation was never even mentioned in our Catholic grade school in the 70's. I'm kinda surprised that they didn't tell us crap like this, but I'm glad they didn't!

Of course it doesn't cause anything... except orgasms, if you're lucky

I've heard it before. I don't think it's necessarily. Perhaps a relationship between libido and testosterone? Or, from experience, I'm more likely to get acne if I masturbate right before I fall asleep because it makes me sweaty and I already washed my face.

I've heard that before but I don't believe it. You get acne from having oily skin.
