How Oral Sex or Having Sex Without a Condom Can Be Good For Women's Health

Performing oral sex or having sex without a condom may benefit both mental and physical health in women, according to scientists who analyzed the effects of *****'s "mood-altering chemicals."

Performing oral sex or having sex without a condom may benefit both mental and physical health in women, according to scientists who analyzed the effects of *****'s "mood-altering chemicals."

Researchers Gordon Gallup and Rebecca Burch, both from State University of New York at Albany, and psychologist Steven Platek of the University of Liverpool predicted that because the ingredients in ***** include "mind-altering" drugs like mood-elevating estrone and oxytocin, affection-promoting cortisol, sleep-inducing melatonin and antidepressants prolactin, thyrotropin-releasing hormone and serotonin, women who have more unprotected sex should be less depressed than those who have protected sex.

Researchers conducted a survey assessing the sex lives and mental health of 293 college females from the SUNY-Albany campus.

All the female participants were asked to fill out an anonymous, written questionnaire about different aspects of their sexual behavior and to complete the Beck Depression Inventory, a commonly used clinical measure of depressive symptoms.

Researchers indirectly measured seminal plasma circulating in the woman’s body by how recently participants had sex without condoms.

Results from the study, published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior, showed that even after adjusting for frequency of sexual intercourse, participants who had sex and "never" used condoms showed significantly fewer depressive symptoms than women who "usually" or "always" used condoms when having sex.

Additionally, researchers found that sexually active women who never used condoms also had fewer depressive symptoms than women who abstained from sex altogether.

Surprisingly, really promiscuous women who used condoms were just as depressed as women who practice total abstinence, leading researchers to suggest that *****, not sex, makes women happier.

Previous findings also suggest that women exposed to ***** perform better on concentration and cognitive tasks and that a woman's body is able to detect 'foreign' ***** that differs from their long-term or recurrent sexual partner’s signature *****.

A woman's ability to detect foreign ***** may be an evolutionary trait that prevents pregnancy from an unfamiliar source because it signals a disinvested male partner who is not as likely to provide for the offspring.

Researchers noted that women who have unprotected sex with their partners may experience more significant depression after a break-up with than those who were not as regularly exposed to an ex-partner's *****.

"Of course, The Professor sent this to me today..." Professor for WHAT CLASS?

The Professor is my long-time lover. Because I was writing here regularly at the time I posted this, most readers knew this.

He is a scientist, but I teach Oral Communication. We have fun with that...LOL.

Something I didn't know. It will be interesting if the research is replicated.
As a man I must say "I like it"

1. You mean women having unprotected sex are not depressed from all those abortions and HIV meds? :-)<br />
2. Really? Men willingly shed the miracle mood-enhancing precious bodily fluid every few days? No wonder they are depressed and cranky!<br />
3. Only a matter of time until biotech makes ***** equivalents so women can ditch both Zoloft and sex with men.

Maybe I should show this to my wife. Perhaps she would see the error of her ways and...oh, never mind!

very interesting

Very interesting. Now I wonder how many people will use these findings to their advantage.

And their unwilling spouse's disadvantage.

Does it work for men too? Just wondering. I'm like that.

I have a friend who's a merrily perverted old gay man...and he seems to like giving oral to whichever man will permit.
I have wondered about his adoration of ******** and swallowing.
I now have a scientific explanation.
I'll have to point him to this.

But I wonder why I like performing oral so much...on either gender? I thought it was a purely psychological thrill.

This goes some way to explain some mysterious events at this house over the past while.

Oh, *** on ! ;p
*****, it's what's for dinner???
Wow, no wonder I've been hankering after Der Studmuffin again.

I'll need to print this off and keep it with me.

I think that my favorite phrase was "affection-promoting cortisol"...

Well, it certainly can't hurt to add to the research . . .!!

Ha! Hope this works for topical applications as well!

I just couldn't help but think of my ILIASM group when I got this...and laughed my butt off! I had to share.

I concur. ;-)

Just like Monty Python said... "Every ***** is Sacred"
