A new study has unveiled the health benefits for women who indulge in oral sex. The study claims that the "mood-altering chemicals" in the semen is good for women's health and makes women feel happier.

The State University of New York study, which scientists carried out via survey rather than through practical experiment, compared the sex lives of 293 females to their mental health.

It follows research, which shows that seminal fluid contains chemicals that elevates mood, increases affection, induces sleep and also contains at least three anti-depressants.

The researchers also claimed that women who have regular unprotected sex are less depressed and perform better on cognitive tests.

Semen contains another of chemicals along with spermatozoa, including cortisol, which is known to increase affection, estrone, which elevates mood and oxytocin, which also elevates mood, the Daily Mail reported.

It also contains thyrotropin-releasing hormone (another antidepressant), melatonin (a sleep-inducing agent), and even serotonin (perhaps the best-known antidepressant neurotransmitter).

Given these ingredients - and this is just a small sample of the mind-altering "drugs" found in human semen - Researchers Gallup and Burch, along with the psychologist Steven Platek, hypothesised that women having unprotected sex should be less depressed than suitable control participants.

To investigate whether semen has antidepressant effects, the authors rounded up 293 college females from the university's Albany campus, who agreed to fill out an anonymous questionnaire about various aspects of their sex lives.

Recent sexual activity without condoms was used as an indirect measure of seminal plasma circulating in the woman's body.

Each participant also completed the Beck Depression Inventory, a commonly used clinical measure of depressive symptoms.

The most significant findings from this study were that, even after adjusting for frequency of sexual intercourse, women who engaged in sex and "never" used condoms showed significantly fewer depressive symptoms than did those who "usually" or "always" used condoms.

Importantly, these chronically condom-less, sexually active women also evidenced fewer depressive symptoms than did those who abstained from sex altogether.

By contrast, sexually active heterosexual women, including self-described "promiscuous" women, who used condoms were just as depressed as those practicing total abstinence.

The research suggests it is not just that women who are having sex are simply happier, but happiness appears to be a function of the seminal fluid pulsing through one's veins.

The study is published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior.

I am a heterosexual male who would greatly benefit from sharing this accredited information with [perhaps not so]carefully selected members of the preferred gender concerned with healthy activities... Thanks for publishing it!

That is all very beautiful for the women. What happens to the men who are frequently expelling this cocktail of health improving substances with the semen? Do they become more depressed and stupid while the women become happier and smarter? Wouldn't it make more sense to keep the semen and let the organism reabsorb it instead of wasting it?

this article is completely misguiding if not outright silly...! the article talks of unprotected sex while the title points to oral sex..!!!... going by the info given in the article, how much semen must a woman swallow to elevate her moods ????? and what do u mean by seminal fluid pulsating through her veins..???.. Titillation if fine if based on facts...! otherwise, it would be mistaken for gibberish..!
