what you didn't know about oral sex and sperm.

Oral sex is good for women's health and makes
you feel happier, according to a study which
studied the effects of semen's 'mood-altering
chemicals'.

The State University of New York study - which
scientists carried out via survey rather than
through practical experiment - compared the sex
lives of 293 females to their mental health.
It follows research which shows
that seminal
fluid contains chemicals that elevate mood,
increase affection, induce sleep and also contain
at least three anti-depressants.
The researchers also claim that women who have
regular unprotected sex are less depressed and
perform better on cognitive tests.
Semen contains another of chemicals along with
spermatozoa, including cortisol, which is known
to increase affection, estrone, which elevates
mood and oxytocin, which also elevates mood.
It also contains thyrotropin-releasing hormone
(another antidepressant), melatonin (a sleep-
inducing agent), and even serotonin (perhaps
the best-known antidepressant neurotransmitter)
.



Given these ingredients - and this is just a small
sample of the mind-altering 'drugs' found in
human semen - Researchers Gallup and Burch,
along with the psychologist Steven Platek,
hypothesised that women having unprotected
sex should be less depressed than suitable
control participants.

To investigate whether semen has
antidepressant effects, the authors rounded up
293 college females from the university's Albany
campus, who agreed to fill out an anonymous
questionnaire about various aspects of their sex
lives.




'THE BENEFITS OF SEMEN'
Other recent findings from Gallup’s laboratory
suggest that semen-exposed women perform
better on concentration and cognitive tasks and
that women’s bodies can detect 'foreign' semen
that differs from their long-term or recurrent
sexual partner’s signature semen.
They suggest the ability to detect foreign sources
is an evolved system that often leads to
unsuccessful pregnancies - via greater risk of
preeclampsia - because it signals a disinvested
male partner who is not as likely to provide for
the offspring.
Their findings also suggest that women who have
unprotected sex with their partners - and
therefore are getting regularly inseminated by
them - experience more significant depression
on breaking up with these men than those who
were not as regularly exposed to an ex’s semen,
and that they also go on the rebound faster in
seeking new sexual partners.
Recent sexual activity without condoms was used
as an indirect measure of seminal plasma
circulating in the woman’s body.
Each participant also completed the Beck
Depression Inventory, a commonly used clinical
measure of depressive symptoms.
The most significant findings from this study,
published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior,
were that, even after adjusting for frequency of
sexual intercourse, women who engaged in sex
and 'never' used condoms showed significantly
fewer depressive symptoms than did those who
'usually' or 'always' used condoms.
Importantly, these chronically condom-less,
sexually active women also evidenced fewer
depressive symptoms than did those who
abstained from sex altogether.
By contrast, sexually active heterosexual women,
including self-described 'promiscuous' women,
who used condoms were just as depressed as
those practicing total abstinence.
The research suggests it is not just that women
who are having sex are simply happier, but that
happiness levels might be related to the
quantity of semen within their body.
