For me it started as a teen,my DF asked me to have a look at his back as he'd noticed something whilst drying himself after a shower.
He took of his t shirt & OMG there was the most humongous lump just below his shoulder blade! I swear it was the size of a grape.
I've no idea how long it had been brewing but I squeezed that bad boy with my 2 thumbs & it popped out like a rocket!
That was it I was hooked.
10 minutes later it was still coming out,poor Df kept saying "surely that's it MissBea?" but I kept on squeezing & it kept on spurting.
The amount that came out of that spot that day was like nothing I've ever experienced,I've seen similar now online & I'm absolutely gutted that we didn't have the technology at the time to save the experience.angry

DF has never asked for my help with any lumps & bumps again either. spoilsport

Yay! The campaign to get a corner for sporners was a success <ridiculously excited>

Mine was at 5 years old, I was in the bath and put a cotton bud in my ear and then accidentally knocked it. Remember so clearly looking in wonder at what had been in my ear. That was it then, completely fascinated by everyone's ears and contents! Soon followed by spots, blisters, blackheads - anything that had OOZE potential

liking 'the ooze spot' rather than Sporner corner

I had acne as a teenager. The joyous sound of pus hitting a mirror cannot be beaten.

I was about five or six and didn't even know what a spot or pus was, but there was a yellow patch on my leg, and when I touched it, a TUBE of pus came out envy I've always wondered if I dreamt it or if it was real.

My first spot.
I squeezed it in front of the mirror and it exploded with an audible pop and gunk hit the mirror.

I was not a spotty teen. I must have been the only kid on the planet who hoped for spots grin

Mine was early teens when my dad couldn't reach the blackheads on the back of his neck, I happily obliged. He said "you don't mind!" "Not at all" I said grin.

Also my first boyfriend had these unusual point/protruding blackheads on his nose but they were white confused has anyone come across these? I plucked them out with tweezers, they were like miniature white sticks, no need to squeeze, just pluck. Some of them were quite sturdy and needed a slight tug to pull out. After I'd finished there was a nice satisfying little pile of about 20.

my dad was covered in spots. One of my earliest memories is watching him, shirtless on the sofa, squeezing the biggest ones , meantime my mum was on the chair hiding behind reading a book while exuding an air of annoyance and revulsion grin

I used to attack my face and arms as a teen, to relieve stress.

XH had an amazing big refillable blackhead on the side of his nose which used to come out like a bookie's pencil.

And DP has a lovely cyst that he gets me to do every few weeks. And you should have seen the beautiful plug of solid gunk I dug out of his head earlier.

I clearly have a type grin
