Does Unprotected Sex Decrease Depression In Women?
A new sex study claims unsafe sex fights depression Don't throw away condoms until you read this.

I often remind my online community why having an active sex life, which includes several orgasms each week, may add healthy, happy years to your life. Medical researchers have reported for decades that frequent sex leading to orgasm boosts your immune system, burns calories, builds your supply of sex hormones, relieves pain and keeps men and women looking youthful.

New medical research claims that having unprotected sex decreases depression in women. Why?


Because semen is good for you. Sperm is not the only powerful ingredient in semen. It also contains mother nature's safe antidepressants and sleep aids, which don't have the harmful side effects of man-made pharmaceuticals.

According to the recent study conducted by the State University of New York and published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior, human semen contains many safe, feel-good brain chemicals including:

* estrone and oxytocin, which elevate mood
* cortisol, which increases affection
* thyrotropin-releasing hormone, another anti depressant
* melatonin, which induces sleep
* seratonin, another feel-good brain chemical

These New York researchers claim that women who have regular unprotected sex not only are less depressed, but they also perform better on cognitive tests due to human semen's mind-altering 'drugs'.

How did they test this hypothesis and reach these findings?

The State University of New York researchers Gallup and Burch, along with the psychologist Steven Platek,
had examined the sex lives, mental and physical health of 293 college females from their Albany campus, by giving them an anonymous questionnaire.

Recent sexual activity without using condoms was what New York researchers used to indirectly measure the seminal plasma circulating in a woman’s body.

Survey participants also completed the Beck Depression Inventory, which is a standard clinical measure of depressive symptoms.

The researchers' findings reveal that women who engaged in sex and “never” used condoms showed significantly fewer depressive symptoms than did those who “usually” or “always” used condoms.

What about the non-condom using, sexually-active women they studied?

Researchers claim these college women also showed fewer depressive symptoms than those who totally abstained from sex.

Their findings claim that sexually-active and “promiscuous” heterosexual women who used condoms were just as depressed as those practicing complete abstinence from sex.

The State University Of New York researchers conclude that happiness among sexually-active women appears to be a function of semen’s chemicals pulsing through body.

Isn't it reckless to ignore the other ingredients that semen introduces into a woman's body?

The mood-boosting chemicals that women receive in semen can't counteract the health risks in having unprotected sex, including unwanted pregnancy and exposure to HIV or other sexually-transmitted diseases in contaminated semen.
