Addicted To SemenSeptember 30, 2010 No Comments
Yuck! Who would be addicted to semen?
Apparently, your vagina.
Women who have regular unprotected sex can become depressed when they go through dry-spells, according to a study of 300 women by New York State University. However, they are less likely to be depressed, or commit suicide, than the women who regularly use condoms.
The amount of sex these women were having appeared to make no difference, the issue was whether they were getting a regular “meat injection.” Abstinent women will be happy to learn that the promiscuous ones who use a condom have about the same level of depression as they do.
Bering in Mind broke it down:
- In other words, it’s not just that women who are having sex are simply happier, but instead happiness appears to be a function of the ambient seminal fluid pulsing through one’s veins. [emphasis added for hilarity]
So semen can improve our mental health, help protect us from depression and apparently it can be kind of addictive. So what makes it so special?
- There is good in this goo. Such anxiolytic chemicals include, but are by no means limited to, cortisol (known to increase affection), estrone (which elevates mood), prolactin (a natural antidepressant), oxytocin (also elevates mood), thyrotropin-releasing hormone (another antidepressant), melatonin (a sleep-inducing agent) and even serotonin (perhaps the most well-known antidepressant neurotransmitter).
Yet another health benefit of sex is revealed. This is great news for couples in stable monogamous relationships, but for the single girls looking for a bit of fun — condoms are still cool. Most of the advantages to sex (it boosts immunity, relieves headaches, and strengthens your heart) work with the latex. And there’s less mess too!
