One of several triggers of acne is increased testosterone levels. Visual sexual signals (such as viewing erotic photos or DVDs while masturbating) raises testosterone levels. This may be a factor but is not the sole cause of acne.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
