I know my acne is caused by ejaculation, and I've read posts of people who suffer of the same problem, and I don't understand how most of those medical websites deny the correlation between the two.

I ALWAYS get acne after I ejaculate more than once a week, and it developes right after I am done, so there's nothing else that could have caused it other than ejaculation.

Anyway, I am wondering if any of those who suffer of the same problem have found a cure for this? I've read about taking B5 -- some recommended taking 10grams of B5. will that work? :confused:
My skin heals up faster when I don't masturbate and yes, I get clear within TWO weeks of no masturbation.
My skin is sort of oily, however it gets REALLY oily after I am done masturbating.
[QUOTE=grracne]acne is not caused by masterbation, i love that myth though =)[/QUOTE]

It may not cause acne for you, but it does for me, also if you search this forum, you'll find a lot of posts concerning acne and sexual activities.

For me, sexual activities don't break me out, it's just the ejaculation process. grrr!
Hello Avron,

I really don't want to dismiss what you are saying, but I find it hard to accept that masturbation is the cause of your acne. There is no way that this could be so. Spots cannot develop immediately after masturbating.

Do you only develop acne after masturbating or after sex too? If it is just masturbating, could it not be guilt and stress related to your feelings on masturbation bringing on the spots?

But as you are a young man and highly unlikely to stop the diddling maybe it would be best to look at what treatments there are for your acne. Have you been to a dermatologist? If not, maybe that should be your best bet. I know that a lot of people here have had bad experiences with dermatologists, but accutane and the other treatments have helped a lot of people.

I tried the B5 and it did not help one bit. I did a search of this forum and there are a lot of people who also found that it did not help. Albeit, there are a few whom it did help. However, we did all agree how expensive it worked out. I would be inclined to try the dermatologist first.

Good luck, C.
I also have done some reading on the subject and I believe it's a myth, or at least, there is no scientific evidence to prove it. You should try not masturbating for a couple of weeks and see if you clear up.

I'd rather have acne than give up masturbation...not the point, I realize, but that's just me.

I doubt its a myth.
I took biology and there is definitely a link between testosterone and acne. Thus increasing 1 increases the other. Thats why people who take steroids usually get acne from it!
I can't believe some of you guys would choose masturbation over an acne free face.
Masturbation is such a dirty practice.

Life isn't all about sex, you're a pervert if you think it is.

Wouldn't you rather have an acne free face so you can actually go out and find a girlfriend and enjoy so many other things rather than masturbating.
Well, at least try to go without it for a month.
After you've gone through it, you'll feel better and you'll feel like you can do
anything because giving up masturbatin is a hard thing to do.

And once you've gone without it, you'll realize there is a whole world beyond sex.

masturbation definitely does not cause acne! Stress and worry can cause acne....... I think every time you masturbate you stress or worry about it and that is what causes your acne! :)

That is the biggest bunch of garbage that I have ever heard. There is nothing wrong with masturbation. It is not a sin and I think that it is horrible for you or anyone else to try to convince young people that they are evil for doing it. That kind of thinking sets us back 50 years. Just because you enjoy pleasure with your spouse or by yourself does not make you a pervert. There are worse things people can do and masturbation hurts no one.

Don't you guys think that if acne was caused by masturbation that we would have heard more about it in the journals of medicine or from our doctors? Please...are you telling me that despite the fact that there is no scientific evidence anywhere that proves that theory, that we, here, on this little message board have SOLVED the acne problem? That's AMAZING!!
So I am not the ONLY one who gets outbreaks after masturbation, huh!? :)

Cecelia,
I've done few 'tests'- about a year ago, I used to masturbate DAILY, and guess what? my face would breakout overnight, with cystic acne too.
And it's not only masturbation, it also involves sex.
In general, whenever I ejaculate more than ONCE a week, I breakout, I get a more oily face and a burning sensation in my cheeks.

Today I've managed to cut down my masturbation to once or twice a month, and guess what? my face has improved, I've tried a lot of medications out there, none of them really worked for me, the only thing I use at the moment is benzoyl peroxide whenever I see a pimple.

Anyway, I've made a HARD decision here, I decided not to masturbate more than twice a month, and avoid everything that would arouse me. hehe
It's a tough decision but I'd rather have an acne free face than enjoy a moment with myself then regret it for the next week.
Hey I don,t think that masterbating is actually causing your acne but i do agree that it can make the problem worse.
My personal opinion is that nobody actually knows the real cause of ACNE but as sufferers we all know what makes our complaint worse at times.
More research needs to be done into acne as surely there is just a little something not right somewhere in our body that causes this problem and i bet it can probably be cured really easily,I genuinley believe that the powers that be do not want to find a cure for our problem or they already have but don,t want us to find out because the acne product market must be worth billions of dollars to pharmacutical companies,
calle me sceptical but come on they can send men to the moon but can,t even find the cause of oily skin and blemishes in the year 2004.

Masturbation is such a dirty practice, its sinful too.[/quote]

If you believe this then you also must believe No sex before marriage, only have sex if it's life giving (ie. no condoms, oral pleasure etc..)

It all falls under the same catagory and almost no one follows this!
[QUOTE=mman]I haven't been with a girl or rubbed one out in about 2 weeks, this is the longest I have gone w/out one or the other since I was probably 16. This thread just got me thinking about it (heads to bathroom to test hypothesis).[/QUOTE]


rubbed one out? LOL..little kids with acne read these boards. :) But i think their could be a connection between the two. I too have tried to test this out, but could not make it a week. I am gonna test this out and see if it works or not. I beleive it could have an issue with oil production, not necessarily acne. But for me, more oil = more acne...so..worth a shot i guess...gd porn so easy to access...
dude i think its a myth because i do it every day and my skin is 97% clear
well ive never experienced a difference in my skin at all through masterbation, i stopped coming here cause im 100% clear now..but i like ot drop by now and then, basically when you ejaculate, nutrients/vitamins are depleted quite heavily..Zinc,Magnesium etc, Less Zinc - lower immune system, which can worsen acne..i suggest taking a zinc/vitamin/mineral supplement..should counter the effects of masterbation on your skin..
You would think not masterbating would increase testosterone and lead to acne??
[QUOTE=mman]You would think not masterbating would increase testosterone and lead to acne??[/QUOTE]

Not masturbating would decrease testosterone's flow in your blood, I don't really think testosterone is my main problem, as I do get turned on a lot, and getting turned on means an increase of testosterone in the blood, it's just when I ejaculate -- something goes wrong when I ejaculate.

if I do it once/twice every two weeks, I don't get any major breakouts, just redness, more oil, burning in my face and small bumps that disappear within two days, however when I do it more than that, I get cystic acne!!

I've been on and off B5f for the last few weeks, and guess what? I've noticed this morning that my forehead is not as oily as it usually is when I don't take it!
I am not taking high dosages of B5, but somehow it is working... well at least, I am hoping it is. :)
