Does Acne Affect your Sex Life?

It affects mine! Whenever I have acne, I dont even let my husband touch my face, cause I put topicals on my face before I sleep. He is always like "ewww, why do you always have to put all that stuff on your face?" I try to explain it but he just says "it would go away if you stopped using all that stuff!" (Yeah right! Tried that! Doesnt work!) I mean, I also feel gross with all the acne and not very sexy... How about you guys?

Re: Does Acne Affect your Sex Life?

I have it on my chest and back also. My girlfriend would want me to take off my shirt and i would be so scared. Its horrible. But I just started accutane 3 days ago, so I hope for the best.

Re: Does Acne Affect your Sex Life?

Yeah it sucks that they can't suck or kiss on your cheeks and you don't want them to touch the topicals so you tell them to keep their hands off. It sort of becomes a tendency because my face is almost about clear and I still feel uncomfortable. Maybe you can call it a habit afterwards?

Re: Does Acne Affect your Sex Life?

Hey guys,
I just wanted to say as a girl... I don't care about the acne on my boyfriend's chest and back... it totally doesn't bother me. So maybe you shouldn't feel too embarrassed, chances are your girlfriend could care less.

Also, I must say that sex is probably the only time when I don't worry about my acne. I know my boyfriend thinks I am gorgeous so I just let my worries go during those moments, knowing that nothing else matters but being intimate with him. I worry about acne all day long, but I am not about to let it seep into my sex life either, no way!
just try to relax and put it out of your mind, trust me no one is looking at zits during sex, there is so much more to see!

Re: Does Acne Affect your Sex Life?

Yea, I know my girlfriend doesn't mind, but it still bothers me and effects my self esteem. My girlfriend has perfect skin and I feel like crap compared to her. I just can't wait for this to all go away.
