    No, those are all old wives tales. It doesn't cause depression or anxiety. In fact, it can actually help relieve both conditions by helping to regulate your mood.

    Also know that masturbating doesn't cause acne. People suffering from acne is mostly down to genetics. Basically, it runs in families, so if you have relatives who have or have previously had it, you're more likely to get it too.

    Hope this helps.

    Yes. But only if your mother catches you doing it.

    Not at all. It can't cause any of those things and is perfectly normal.

    None of those things are true. The acne idea got started because, before we knew about hormones and puberty, we saw acne and masturbation as being false correlates. Anxiety can result in more frequent masturbation in the context of certain mental health disorders (particularly among sex offenders) but this is NEVER correlated in the opposite direction- frequent masturbation CAN be a symptom of certain mental health disorders but is NEVER the cause of any mental health disorder.

    Yes. In addition to those it will also make you shorter, give you cancer and turn you into a liberal. Are more dumb guesses?

    Not acne, no. Acne is caused by a diet high in fructose and low in fiber. Puberty exacerbates acne, but it rarely causes it.

    It's not so much masturbation as it is masturbation using porn. Pretty soon, you won't get excited unless you are masturbating to porn. Normal sex won't do it for you.

    It's all the conditioning of your brain and changing your brain with addiction usually causes depression and anxiety.

      Acne is caused by hormones, which is why it is associated with puberty. Repeated medical studies have shown no clear dietary connection.

    NO. How are these old wives' tales even still around? Masturbation DOES relieve sexual tension, and some people think that's a good thing.
