Professors Gordon, Burch, and Platek did a landmark study on semen as a possible anti-depressant.  Using a sample of 293 college females who answered a questionnaire on their sexual behavior, the study found that women who used unprotected sex were significantly less depressed. Those who "never" used condoms, the study noted, showed significantly better moods--fewer depressive symptoms, and less bouts of depression--than those who abstained from sex or who regularly used condoms.

The study also looked at length of time between sex.  For those who did not use condoms the correlation was significant.  As the authors stated, "females who did not typically use condoms, depressive symptoms increased as the amount of time since their last sexual encounter increased."  In other words, less sex, more depressed for the non-condom group.  They suggested that semen might have anti-depressant quality.  Interestingly, the raw group (i.e., no condoms) also reported having sex more often.

The authors looked at relationships thinking that might be the cause.  Whether the females were in a relationship or not had no significant correlation to depression.  So that was ruled out. Finally, they noted that those who used condoms or abstained from sex were also "more likely to report having attempted suicide."

 

As a result of the study the authors suggest that semen might play a role in reducing depression in women.

Most likely a liberal Democratic campus with a heavey Femininist presence.  Yes, hard to dilute the mystery of the beauty of this organic statement of the power of masculinity.  I've personally  tested the theory....lol  You can't take an vitamin effectively once weekely, must be at least once daily.

You should have one partner and have unprotected sex.  Yes, the results are true and the medical community knows the impact semen has on our health.  The liability to speak out isn't worth the backlash and it's up to due diligence to find the benefits.  Before you pop a pill, consider tha.t a man's semen is essentially a medicinal cabinet for the woman's body.  Research, do your own study, stick to medical journals and find out how many findings there are already in public record about the power of semen.  The information is hidden for the same reason you pointed out.

A medical professor, I believe, got fired over repeating these findings (as in he believed it).

ORLANDO, 

 

I personally can't stand condoms... Sensation is definitely lessened, even for women. It also affects spontenaeity, intimacy level, etc...

 

However, NO ONE should be having sex without condoms UNLESS they are in a monogomous relationship and only AFTER both parties have been tested. It is socially irresponsible!

 

NOTE: LAMBSKIN does NOT protect against STD's.

HELLO ALL Professors and Inspectors... (LOL)

 

SL, as a certified former health care worker and a woman who has not only dated several doctors, but has also spent numerous hour speaking to MY doctors... 

 

Although condoms are not full proof for anything, the PRIMARY OBJECTIVE for today's society in uing them is FOR NOT GETTING STD'S. Condoms primary objectve is NOT "birth control." There are too many other means of birth control out there.. 

 

However, there are NOT many means of providing safety from STD's... 

 

CONDOMS AND ABSTINENCE PEOPLE... 

 

YOUR CHOICE!

No message intended Hoping.  Just relaying interesting studies.  Actually, you wondered if they were happy because they were in monogamous, happy relationships and that is why they were less depressed.  In fact, they tested for that and I mentioned it in the study.  I'm afraid being in a relationship had nothing to do with being happier. 

 

Let me put my professor hat on.  I see the weakness as the sample size.  It's rather small. We also don't know the ethnicities, religious backgrounds, attractiveness level, upbringing, etc.  There are too many extraneous variables that aren't accounted for that could have caused the significant results.

I can only hope the women who were not using codoms were in stable, monogomous relationships and thus attributed to the WHY, they were significantly happier!!

 

I GOT BEPOSITIVE'S BACK ON THIS ONE!!! 

 

Do NOT have unprotected sex without being in a monogomous relationship ... and ONLY,,,,

AFTER BOTH parties are tested and you trust the man is being honest with you!! 

 

~~SL~~ 

LMAO!! 

 

I do not understand the message you try to send to women ORLANDO... 

 

Show cleavage and bed shots-- you get more hits,,, 

 

and don't have protected sex... 

 

and you'll be less depressed? 

 

LADIES, 

 

VALUE "YOURSELF" enough to make him sport a raincoat!!

I usually enjoy reading your posts, Orlando, but this one bothers me.  It almost encourages women (and men) to have unprotected sex.  That is a very scary thought these days.........just saying!!
