Does Masturbation Cause Acne
Many people have reported unexplained pimples appearing on their face, hands and genitals after a period of masturbation which often disappear when they stop masturbating. “Acne is caused by excess sebum (oil) production and excessive masturbation increases the level of the hormones testosterone and progesterone which can increase inflammatory response and increase oil production.
