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.
"I want to make it clear that we are not advocating that people abstain from using condoms," says Gordon Gallup, the psychologist at the State University of New York who led the team. "Clearly an unwanted pregnancy or a sexually transmitted disease would more than offset any advantageous psychological effects of semen."
The study shows what happens if you let female mice mate with multiple males, and repeat the process over many generations.
Evolutionary biologists Renée Firman and Leigh Simmons did this with house mice. They also bred a line of mice from strictly monogamous matings.
After 12 generations, the researchers tested the sperm of male mice. They took males from each group (those descended from promiscuous females and those descended from monogamous females) and entered them in a kind of fertility contest.
It worked this way. Researchers got 32 females and mated each female with two males—one male from each group. Then, after 14 days, researchers did genetic testing on the resulting embryos.
The males descended from generations of promiscuous females won the contest. They had sired more offspring.
About 33% of litters were sired exclusively by the males from the “promiscuous mom” lineage. Only about 14% of the litters were sired exclusively by the males from the “monogamous mom” lineage. Where litters were mixed, most of the offspring were sired by the “promiscuous mom” males.
That video is interesting, i just listened to the whole thing, and low and behold confirms my suspicions as to what mixing can do and bring about.....smh
I heard in that video, that the woman gets an chemical sort of magnetization towards the male and vice versa.......
Bacterial Vaginosis – CDC Fact Sheet
What is bacterial vaginosis?
Bacterial vaginosis (BV) is the name of a condition in women where the normal balance of bacteria in the vagina is disrupted and replaced by an overgrowth of certain bacteria. It is sometimes accompanied by discharge, odor, pain, itching, or burning.
How common is bacterial vaginosis?
Bacterial vaginosis (BV) is the most common vaginal infection in women of childbearing age. In the United States, BV is common in pregnant women.
How do people get bacterial vaginosis?
The cause of BV is not fully understood. BV is associated with an imbalance in the bacteria that are normally found in a woman's vagina. The vagina normally contains mostly "good" bacteria, and fewer "harmful" bacteria. BV develops when there is an increase in harmful bacteria.
Not much is known about how women get BV. There are many unanswered questions about the role that harmful bacteria play in causing BV. Any woman can get BV. However, some activities or behaviors can upset the normal balance of bacteria in the vagina and put women at increased risk including:
* Having a new sex partner or multiple sex partners
It is not clear what role sexual activity plays in the development of BV. Women do not get BV from toilet seats, bedding, swimming pools, or from touching objects around them. Women who have never had sexual intercourse may also be affected.
What are the signs and symptoms of bacterial vaginosis?
Women with BV may have an abnormal vaginal discharge with an unpleasant odor. Some women report a strong fish-like odor, especially after intercourse. Discharge, if present, is usually white or gray; it can be thin. Women with BV may also have burning during urination or itching around the outside of the vagina, or both. However, most women with BV report no signs or symptoms at all.
