The study by State University of New York found that semen contains potent “mood-altering chemicals” that can do wonderful things for a woman’s body and mind.
This study was done from a survey of 293 college females from the university’s Albany campus, who agreed to fill out an anonymous questionnaire about various aspects of their sex lives and then they then compared those responses to how the women viewed their mental health.
Earlier research had shown that seminal fluid contains chemicals that elevates mood, increase affection, induces sleep and also contains at least three anti-depressants.
Apparently men were endowed with a nifty combination of mood enhancers that don’t get the credit they deserve. Along with spermatozoa, semen also contains cortisol–which increases affection; estrogen–which makes you happier; and oxytocin, another powerful mood elevator, reports the Daily Mail.
Of course in many ways the study was a waste of money because, as the article points out, the conclusions should be well known to almost everyone:
As if that weren’t enough, semen naturally contains two other antidepressants, including well-known serotonin, and sleep-inducing melatonin. So after you get really happy, you go to sleep. (We needed a study to tell us that?)
