Gulp! Ladies, here’s a bit of news that might “blow” you away! Oral sex is not only good for your health but it also makes you feel happier, according to a State University of New York study.
The Daily Mail quoted the study, saying semen elevates mood, ups affection, induces sleep and contains at least three anti-depressants. The researchers, who surveyed 293 women, claim that women who have regular unprotected sex are less depressed.
Semen contains spermatozoa, cortisol, which is known to increase affection, estrone and oxytocin which elevates mood. It also contains thyrotropin-releasing hormone (another antidepressant), melatonin (a sleep-inducing agent), and even serotonin (antidepressant neurotransmitter).
Also, women who engage in unsafe sex are less prone to depression. The research suggests it’s not just about the sex, but how happy women are might be related to the amount of semen within their body.
Sexually active heterosexual women, including promiscuous women, who used condoms were just as depressed as those practicing total abstinence. This suggests it is semen, not just sex, that makes women happy.
But you can’t have one without the other, right? Well, that’s debatable.
