Sex is widely hailed as one of the greatest pleasures in life. It’s why people use the phrase “better than sex” as a way to describe something that’s really incredible, like a delicious piece of cake or a relaxing massage. But, according to a recent survey, one in five Americans said they would rather have something else over a fulfilling sex life: clear skin. In fact, 21 percent of people said they would give up the act altogether for a year if it meant they could have perfect skin. To see why experts think so many Americans feel this way, read on, and for other sex tips you could use, check out This Is the Worst Thing You Could Say to Someone in Bed.

According to a Nov. 25 survey commissioned by Hanacure and conducted by OnePoll, it seems a significant portion of Americans care more about their skin than their sex life. While this may sound shocking to some people, if you’ve ever had bad skin, you might identify with these results. Experts say people are so passionate about having blemish-free skin because it affects every aspect of their lives, including sex.

“I think people want to have good skin because it gives them confidence when they do have sex,” says dermatologist Sapna Palep, MD, founder of Spring Street Dermatology. “Seriously though, good skin affects every facet of your life, more than just sex and relationships. Your confidence, self-esteem, ability to be aggressive in life to get what you want are all influenced by the health of your skin. Your skin impacts your work, daily life, and relationships, so it’s important to people.”

Palep’s observations seem to be spot on since the survey found that 47 percent of people said their skin is the main source of their insecurities.

Dermatologist and author of Mindful Beauty Debbie Palmer, DO, also believes that the pandemic lockdowns may have increased people’s dissatisfaction with their skin. “Today, more than ever, we are spending time looking at ourselves on social media and Zoom calls. We are more aware of how we look,” said Palmer. “The awareness can also create more self-criticism.”
