一份於2002年刊登於Archives of Sexual Behavior期刊並曾引起媒體廣泛注目、
由紐約州立大學阿爾巴尼分校教授Gallup GG Jr等人所進行的研究便發現,
…..Taste alone is no reason to go near semen,
then. But there is another reason why its ingestion might prove appealing.
Amongst its 50 constituent chemicals are some that really can make you happy:
cortisol (which increases affection), estrone (which elevates mood),
oxytocin (ditto), and even serotonin (an antidepressant neurotransmitter).
While that may sound good in theory, experiments also suggest that it has a real,
measurable effect in practice…..
…..A study published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior, for instance,
showed that—even after adjusting for frequency and quanity of sex—
women who have unprotected sex have fewer depressive symptoms than women
that have protected sex, or no sex at all. Another, less rigorous,
study hinted at similar effects in gay men who don’t use condoms…..
…..Sadly, there’s been no scientific research conducted into whether
oral ingestion of semen has an anti-depressive effect,
though it seems likely that it may have at least some small positive effect.
There is, however, genuine scientific evidence that suggests swallowing semen
may make a woman’s pregnancy safer and more successful because
she is absorbing her partner’s antigens. Good luck with that one…..
…..Before getting too excited about the possible health benefits of semen though,
there is one problem that must be bought to your attention: HIV.
You see, some of the protein factors within semen—
principally prostatic acid phosphatase—make HIV far,
far more potent than when the virus travels by any other means…..
….In fact, when HIV is carried in sperm it is a staggering 100,000-fold more potent
than when it is not carried within seminal plasma. If that number scares you,
it should: contact with semen is the single most effective way to transmit HIV.
So while there seem to be some strong health benefits associated with direct contact
with male ejaculate, caution is encouraged if get it from a stranger…..
