There were a number of problems with this study, and it was not well conducted. While this is theoretically possible, it is not by any stretch a proven fact.

I see alot of push back from the ladies on this one!!!! Props to Mello and Kimberly for swimming with the facts..... shame on those girls not willing to consider the possibilities with a sense of discovery and curiosity..... they are the ones as well as their partners who are impoverished by these assumptions and bias not well founded....

MelloD...... I like your thinking on this..... after orgasm I like to stay connected with my partner and allow the afterglow to include continued cuddling/embracing... the sensation of post orgasmic contractions as well as the opportunity to linger inside her to share those mysterious pheremones as well

Too many doubters.... for overdue pregnancy any ob/gyn will recommend frequent intercourse to induce labor.... medical fact.... the rest is also true... plus the oxytocin and prolactins released from orgasm...

Hmmmm,.. Well,. I know when I spread it around,. it makes me happy And.. "cum" to think of it,.. All the ones that were "swallowers" were pretty happy all the time.. I wonder if we could bottle & sell it,.. without FDA approval or testing,. not as a drug,. but a "suppliment" I could call it "Dr.Demon's Famous Root Oil".. "Good for anything that ails you".. and our slogan is,. "A Smile Cums with every Bottle!"..We enjoy makin' it an much as you like takin' it!"

Sorry for the bad news .... swallowing destroys the benefits in stomach acid.... all effects are from vaginal absorption ... so swallowing is strictly placebo effect...

You're right about the oxytocin being the "antidepressant". But that has to be released in your brain...you can't get it from absorbing/ingesting sperm.

And you don't really get it from orgasms. An orgasm is actually generally counterproductive, as it delivers a giant dose of dopamine, which upsets the neurochemical balance in your brain, which will actually make you feel uneasy afterwards.

The woman will be getting oxytocin from the "bonding" feeling she gets from the closeness she gets from the man. And it's obvious that your more likely to be much less inhibited and feeling close when you aren't practicing some kind of "protection".

I wonder how Rod Stewart felt after that incident with his soccer team.
you know, the one where he "slipped and fell" and had to go to hospital to get his stomach pumped clean of 1/2 litre of semen?
I heard he wasn't very happy.

I guess we need to define what type of depression to start with.

I never noticed any remarkable change in mood of LT GF after uncovered sex.

the giggle index was always high before as after.

So they say in other articles I have read, depression is at an all time high in the US now.

So men, if your lady is feeling a little down, you now know what you have to get them to do.
Ahhh, the sacrafices we men make for you women.

I've read a couple of studies on this, the hormones present in the semen have effect on on the cervix to help cause the muscle to relax, helps it open for the semen to enter. The hormone definately make one happy, as that is a reasonable explanation as to why some people actually continue with bad sex, the end product has the desired effect. really, think of all the women who never achieve orgasm until their late 20's or ever, but they continue to enjoy sex even when it's bad. And women have no prostate gland to be stimulated in anal sex, but if the man finishes in there, she mysteriously lets him do it all again at a later date....

No, it's not high as a kite stuff, but the hormonal effect is documented, and I for one, have always used it for medicinal purposes, it erases my headaches, it relaxes my uptight muscles, it does wonders for my cranky mood. Otherwise, I never would have stayed with Mr. Inoutnsnore as long as I did.

Msg141: though that could be the physical extortion it takes to get to the semen…

Now that’s some kind of shakedown!

If this is true, then it's a definite bummer for straight men - no wonder a lot of them are so miserable.

Ahhhhhh! That's why so many gay men are... gay (happy)! And the ones who aren't, aren't getting their fill. Everything makes sense now.

But it didn't! Hey wait -- what I have a suggestion nobody suggested. You find a stack of crackers in the pantry, turn on porn in said pantry, ask the males at the party to go into that pantry...

I can't for the life of me see how simply being pumped full of semen with no orgasm would improve my mood.


Some women that have a hard time having an orgasm, after they are filled with semen somehow get a second win that allows them to increase their own intensity and achieve an orgasm. What this also means to the guy, since the second ejaculate is harder to achieve is that she is going to get pumped much harder than before and instead of the men ejaculating again, he pushes her over the edge and facilitate her to have whooping orgasm.

But what women have indicated as the catalyst was that they were already filled with semen.

I don't think that would work if there are women at said party - why would they waste their tank on porn if they have the real thing in the living room ?

I do believe semen acts as an antidepressant. Long ago when I had sex, I would feel good for 2 and a half days after having sex after having semen in me.

We don't need a study to determine this: Sex does release hormones in the body, and yes sex does make one feel happier. Or it could be the opposite, just depends on the partner. There might have been a time that I wanted to jump off a bridge afterwards....LOL.
