“It’s Science”–Ron Burgundy
If your man is telling you that his semen is good for what ails you, he may very well be telling you the truth. According to recent studies that actually measured the mood altering chemicals found in semen, having oral sex may actually make women feel happier. The State University of New York conducted a study that compared the specifics of the sex lives of 293 women to their level of overall happiness and mental health. The results of the study may actually surprise you!
Prior research had shown that certain chemicals found in male seminal fluid contained properties that could be mood elevating for women. These chemicals were found to contain natural anti-depressants that could increase a woman’s feelings of lovingness, sense of well being, as well as her tendency toward affection. These same seminal fluid chemicals also were found to enhance sleeping. This same research conclusively proved that women who had regular unprotected sex were not only functioning cognitively at a higher level, but were measurably less depressed than the other tested groups who were either using condoms or abstaining from sex altogether.
Semen contains cortisol and estrone, which are known mood enhancers, in addition to oxytocin, another natural anti-depressant that is known to help you to unwind, by naturally reducing your blood pressure. Other significant ingredients in semen that may have beneficial side effects include: thyrotopin-releasing hormone, melatonin, (helps to induce sleep) and even a little seratonin (another natural anti-depressant) to boot. Your man’s semen might actually be the best feel-good tonic out there–and who are we to argue with good science?
This latest study surveyed women’s sexual habits in detailed fashion, the results inarguably concluding that women who never used condoms were less depressed overall than those who did. It was also noted that women who shunned the condom were still actively engaging in regular sex, clearly linking male semen to happier women. This research seems to indicate that the more semen there is floating around in a woman’s body, the happier she seems to be.
Our disclaimer: Obviously we can’t emphasize enough that unprotected sex is safe only in a completely monogamous relationship. We think it’s safe to assume that a loving, committed relationship will only enhance the anti-depressive effects that we are endorsing. Unprotected sex with multiple partners will ultimately only create more risk and will likely do far more harm than good.
With a potentially power packed potion of happiness this readily available, what are you waiting for? Husbands and boyfriends of the world apparently now have one more reason to rejoice.
