Hi,I was wondering if masturbating can cause you to have acne because when I stop for a while the acne on my back goes away.

Masturbating does not cause acne. In fact, masturbation has a number of physical and mental health benefits, such as reducing stress and physical tension.

The body goes through lots of changes during puberty and adolescence. It’s only a coincidence that sometimes you seem to have less acne when you don’t masturbate.
