Over in the Gallery I posted a picture of a Belami model Alec Morrison. So I searched about him. Many complained that he had acne, a few pimples. I didn't really notice them. So is acne a turn-off to you?

Major turn off! Especially when getting rid of acne can be quite simple & inexpensive these days.

 

Another huge turn off: Keratosis Pilaris. It's worst when guys have it on their butt/upper leg area & don't bother to regularly exfoliate or find a perm solution for it. I used to have mild KP on the back of my arms until I was introduced to AmLactin 12% (self-exfoliating magic <3) AHA lotion. My life forever changed the day I received my first 20oz bottle for only $19 from Costco :') I order giant 40oz bottles from Amazon now & use it all over my bod for a baby smooth feel to my skin.

Gotta tell you, as a physician I deal with a lot of KP and you are very lucky you had a mild case. Most of the time even Amlactin does not work!

I remember years ago my niece had a friend who had a bad case of acne. When I saw him a couple of years later it looked like he had had his face "sanded" smooth.

Someone once described someone with a bad case of acne [not for the feint of heart]:

 

He crouched over me, his beard scrubbing my face. I could feel him getting close.

I put my arms around his shoulders and neck ...

ewwww ....

The slime from his skin covered my arms and my hands.

I suffered at one point from mild to moderate acne. My treatment was quite simple - tea tree oil. I just use one or maybe two drops and mix it with my facial moisturizer at night and it helps clear my face. It’s especially effective when you start dabbing it at site where the pimple is growing. It’s an $8 to $10 solution from your local Walgreens or CVS. Your facial moisturizer is extra of course lol

Bad skin can be a turn off.

 

One of my nightmare hiring experiences involved a guy who was roiding. It was a stupid, unresearched, last minute replacement hire, because of prior arrangements falling through.

 

He was beefy. Studio apartment in SF Hayes Valley neighborhood... bed was a mattress on floor of closet. Shirt comes off. I hugged him. My hands came away gooey from the backne.

 

If there was such an Olympic category... I set a record for fastest fat-ass getting dressed and getting out.

I wonder what conclusions will be drawn by 22nd Century anthropologists and social scientists who study early 21st Century social media.

as some one who had terrible acne during my teen years and have had it popping up on my chin for the last year, I can say it's not easy for everyone to get rid of. The dermatologist I visited recently suggested that most adult acne has a dietary cause...most likely sugar. He prescribed some insanely expensive topical cream that doesn't seem to be making much difference for me.

 

I have had some success with tea tree oil, but even that doesn't work consistently

 

As to whether it's a turnoff...depends how severe and the location

When I was a teen I had a mild case of acne, pimples that lasted a couple of years. My parents got me some kind of cream that helped.

I suffered from acne until I was in my early 30s. After being treated by numerous Doctors (most of whom really hadn't a clue about effective treatment of the condition). Finally, I was treated by a dermatologist who prescribed a course of Accutane. It took about 4 months, and was often quite uncomfortable, but it permanently ended my acne problems.

 

I find acne a turn off, and after a very unpleasant experience with a body builder a few years ago, I have learned to be direct and ask "do you have any acne". It is often a problem with guys who are juicing. I have also learned to carefully view photos in escort profiles for evidence of skin problems, or heavy use of airbrushing or Photoshop resulting skin that is impossibly perfect.

Years back I knew this fellow his face was so pock marked he grew a beard but it was so scraggly one could still see his face.

When getting a back rub the therapist might mention seeing a zit here or there. I always enjoy it if he will pop it. Also get into popping other guys' blemishes from time to time. It's not a big deal, just something odd I enjoy in the midst of a session. Has to be a "ripe" zit though. I'd rather avoid the stubborn acne.

TMI here? Probably. Sorry, it's just such a joy though to know I can be honest and no one will judge me......................sorry, almost choked on my "tongue in cheek."

You are correct. I still use tea tree oil and it works like magic if you apply early enough.

 

As for food, definitely. I finally narrowed it down to peanuts. Maybe it’s a different form of allergy but I do breakout after eating peanuts, particularly on my back. I usually get one or two on my face but a handful on my back. I have avoided peanuts and have remained clear thus far. I can eat tree nuts like almonds though just fine.

I find a certain degree of acne scarring om a man's face pretty attractive - gives him a rugged look. Nonetheless, I wouldn't wish acne on anyone. When I was in high school, at any given time, I might have 3 or 4 zits. My mother used to buy me this brand of toner that kept them under control- I still remember the name "Bonnie Bell 1006 Lotion."
