Sir, it's true that ejaculation due masturbation or sex is the cause for acne or pimples on face?

In brief: No

It would be difficult to find a control group, but this is something that was made up to frighten young men.
Enjoying your body won't make you pimply, short, stupid, hairy, smooth, an unfit husband / father, mentally ill, blind, or unspiritual. It prepares you for adult life. Why not think about that one special person in your future, instead of internet trash? Best wishes.

In brief: Sex

Sadly, whomever told you such a fallacy is either brain dead or an outright liar. Acne isn't caused by ejaculation.
How do you explain acne in females ?!

In brief: Hormones and youth

Masturbation, which is a normal and common part of the human experience is not the cause of acne or pimples.
But, the hormones that lead you to growing up, and maturing you into a young adult cause fluctuations in your skin and in the oil and other glandular activities in your body. The desire for sex is part of that but sex itself is not to blame for this common skin malady.
