There is certainly something mystic about having sex on a special night with your significant other. It leads to a closer bonding, you feel elevated, happy and special, even your hearts beat together in unison.
Yes, science has found that when you are in the presence of your loved one then “Two hearts beat as one”. However, when it comes to women it is not only the bonding and the lovemaking that makes them feel content and joyful. The semen of men during “bonding” sessions does more than just ovulating eggs.
The fact is that the mighty semen contains antidepressant properties.
Only 3% of semen contains those wriggling little things we call sperm. The rest is seminal fluid, which is made from sugars that nourish the sperm, immune-depressants to keep the sperm alive and some 50 other compounds.
But that’s not all! Semen also contains endorphins, prolactin, oxytocin, serotonin and thyrotrpin-releasing hormone, all of which are related to that “elevated and euphoric” feeling that we desperately require, in addition to two female sex hormones.
Vaginal tissues are very responsive and absorptive because they contain a density of nerve endings, even more than the groins of men. They are also rich in blood vessels and lymph nodes.
However using a condom doesn’t count, simply because the semen goes to waste. It was found out in a study that risky sex and the fear of becoming pregnant leads to negative thoughts and suicidal attempts. And those who never used condoms reported as having less suicidal thoughts.
Putting on a condom is indeed a hassle and spoils the erotic mood. So if you were planning to have another baby, now is the best time to go for it. And oh… ditch the antidepressants before the night fades out.
