I can’t stop watching blackhead removal videos on YouTube

I’m totally in to them. And can watch over an hour at night secretly. I have honed it down to really only liking the ones where the blackheads are pulled about by tweezers. Which must be very laborious considering how blackhead ridden people seem to be! I love guessing by the camera angle which one the tweezers are heading for ( 10 points for each correct guess) and I get rather ( over ) excited by the holes that are left behind. My partner and I are considering moving in together next year. He would be horrified. I will really have to go undercover.

You sound like my DH.

YABU, it’s yuck. confused

I do think DH loves picking out hairs from the sink and enjoys all the dirty things that make me cringe. He genuinely enjoys it and finds it therapeutic.

Lucky me. Shouldn’t complain.

Sorry op but YABU

Earwax removal videos are much better

Have you visited the sporners corner....... you'll fit right in.

YANBU. I'm with you on the tweezers.

Got any good links?

I can't watch them all easily loose my evening. My favourite are cysts ones

I'm a secret watcher too 🙈 Love a good blackhead minefield video! I get quite jealous that these people do it for a living😂

It's my secret pleasure,I also love watching earwax extraction videos. It's my dream job!

IABUQueen Wed 08-May-19 21:48:25

Out of curiousity do some pp here have ocd like my DH?

I wonder if it’s linked. I couldn’t sleep if I watched a video about earwax. Would make me heave

Oh my! I'd never seen them before but I think I'm addicted already. I'm wishing I had some like that to squeeze

Livedandlearned Wed 08-May-19 21:51:23

I love them so much too! Check out UrbanExtraction for ingrown hairs. Episode 14 is my all time favourite.

Livedandlearned Wed 08-May-19 21:52:59

@pazwaz do you watch Audiology Associates on YouTube? Also Dr Zhao is fab.

I watch them and feel really dirty afterwards, like I'm harbouring a secret guilt. confused

I'm really mainstream and like Dr Pimple Popper. Go back to her older work on You Tube. The TLC episodes are more lyphomas and cycsts - but great stories. Ear wax used to interest me but I think I'm done now....I prefer the old fashioned syringe rather than the extraction videos. More fun when the wax fell out of the ear unexpectedly. Lol.

Choclover27 Wed 08-May-19 22:29:22

Thank god you are all as strange as me. I don’t have OCD. Nor any other addictive behaviours. I’ve watched cysts ( over that one too ), not a fan of in growing hairs, but do like a good milia extraction. Slightly jealous I have none of these personally.
Must get back to my videos. I have 32 mins left till my 11pm curfew.

@choclover27 I don't have any either. But my OH bought me a spot remover tool kit just in case. (There are occasional spots). The kids get their ears cleaned regularly. And once they get hormonal acne I'll be there!!! (I won't really as I'm sure they'll tell me where to go!)

Not a blackhead but dh got a massive thorn embedded in his head yesterday and I had to dig it out with tweezers. Was amazing.

slipperywhensparticus Thu 09-May-19 06:37:57

Since when did we have an is this normal topic?

See you at corners corner OP grin

Mumsymumphy Thu 09-May-19 06:40:54

I have found my people! 🙌🏻

Love watching the videos 😁don't get the American way of poking and prodding them with sharp instruments- just get your fingers on it and squeeeeeze!

weaselwords Thu 09-May-19 06:44:27

I’ve moved on to ear wax videos now, but still have a place in my heart for Dr Pimplepopper’s “Blackheads for dayzzzzz” video of a young woman’s back. Very satisfying, But she hasn’t got the Welsh lilt of the Audiology Associates guy.

boredboredboredboredbored Thu 09-May-19 06:48:08

I used to do war syringing at work (nurse) that moment the huge piece plops out is spectacular. I am also partial to blackheads and pus filled spots too. I recall an elderly lady I looked after who had the hugest of blackheads on her face, obviously I couldn't squeeze it but it was all I could look at when I spoke to her blush

🤣 Blackhead popping, the gateway drug.
