Why doctors disagree that masturbation not causes acne?My 8 yr experience proves that masturbation cause hormonal changes in body which caused acne!
Not cause and effect: Masturbation does not cause hormone changes; hormone changes cause acne. Puberty causes hormone changes, and the desire to have sex (with yourself or otherwise!) you confuse cause and effect! btw, masturbation supposedly also causes hairy palms.

I heard that masturbation is bad for body builders and its the main cause of pimple and acne....is it true?
Wrong: I am sorry people are still telling you these flat-out lies. Masturbation doesn't cause any problems for any one with respect to physical issues. My suggestion is to tell any of those people who say such things to go away and ignore anything else such ignorant people tell you about sex and masturbation whether it be family or other people in so-called respected positions. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
