Acne. Why does it have to exist? Isn’t life hard enough already? Whether you’re a teen, adult, or fully grown man, waking up to a face full of pimples can be just enough to ruin your day. Sure, a spangling of whiteheads is somewhat more acceptable if puberty isn’t that far in your rear view mirror, but struggle is real no matter what age you are. And for some guys, it seems like just as their face clears up, their back breaks out--and once that goes, the zits just relocate to your ass. Intense acne can make you feel unlovable and hideous. For the men who have tried everything and are ready to resign to being greasy hermits for the rest of life, I’m here to tell you to get over yourself. For any guy who is truly worth your time, acne should not be a deal breaker, and here’s why.
If you’re reading this, I assume you’ve already tried all the usual suspects in terms of combating acne. You’re as hydrated as a camel, your pillowcases get washed daily, and you have an elaborate collection of topical creams in your bathroom. If none of these things work for you, I can sympathize. Sometimes acne seems to be on its own schedule regardless of what you do to influence it. And acne just makes everything more difficult. Those guys blessed with perfectly clear skin will never know the difficulty of trying to shave over a mountainous terrain of zits. Needless to say, it sucks.
But here’s the tea, zit-boys. If you’re spending all your time worrying about your acne and feeling like an ugly duckling, you’re just not being fair to yourself. There are tons of guys out there who can appreciate your face and your body despite those little superficial imperfections. And unless the literal tip of your penis is covered with zits, it shouldn’t effect your sex life too much.
Also, you may not believe it, but I can tell you from personal experience that there IS a fetish out there for pimples. That’s right, you read that correctly. I was hooking up with a guy for a while who wouldn’t let me pop my own zits because nothing was hotter to him that doing it himself. I guess there’s something evocative about squirting out the white puss? Regardless, these people do exist, just be careful if they start rubbing your back with bacon grease while you sleep.
Learning to love and accept yourself for who you are and how you look is tough. Whether or not you struggle with acne, this is something that all gay men have in common. In some ways, coming to terms with your gayness is almost a dress-rehearsal for coming to terms with your acne. It’s a part of you, and deserves to be loved and cherished just like the rest of you. And yes, the gays are superficial--so work out, get a six pack, learn to suck dick real good, and I promise your acne will no longer be a deal breaker. And if all else fails, you can always date a guy with bad eyesight. ;)Previous Next
