Semen acts as an anti-depressant


"Semen makes you happy. That's the remarkable conclusion of a study comparing women whose partners wear condoms with those whose partners don't.

The study, which is bound to provoke controversy, showed that the women who were directly exposed to semen were less depressed. The researchers think this is because mood-altering hormones in semen are absorbed through the vagina. They say they have ruled out other explanations."

"In fact, the results aren't a complete surprise because semen does contain several mood-altering hormones, including testosterone, oestrogen, follicle-stimulating hormone, luteinising hormone, prolactin and several different prostaglandins. Some of these have been detected in a women's blood within hours of exposure to semen."

Just found this interesting. Whether or not it's true, that's another matter. Anyone want to experiment? ;)

edit(12:02): Also, I hate early lunches. I'm back from lunch already and I've got 5 hours left of work. :(
