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.

Did the New York college women surveyed see a need to protect their health and well being from those risks?
Did they experience stress after exposing themselves to these risks during frequent, unprotected sex?
Did they ever feel depressed after being infected and treated for sexually-transmitted diseases that are on the rise in college campuses and cities across America?
Did these college women recognize the different physical and emotional reactions you get from having frequent sex leading to orgasm inside and outside of a committed relationship? Let's examine those differences.

In previous sex studies since the 1980's, researchers have measured the mood and health-boosting benefits of having frequent sex leading to orgasm. "Sexual healing" is the popular term for these health and longevity benefits.

How do you experience sexual healing?

Previous studies revealed that you don't begin to reap these health and longevity benefits until you are having sex at least twice a week in a committed relationship for three years.

It seems unlikely that the college-age women surveyed in the recent study by the State University of New York fit this criteria to experience physical and emotional benefits of sexual healing in an enduring committed relationship. So it seems likely that the New York researchers evaluated the temporary, mood-altering benefits of sexual activity and semen circulating in the bodies of college-age women who had unprotected sex.

How long do these mood-altering benefits last?

Findings from previous sex studies reveal that sexual orgasm sends feel-good brain chemicals into a man and a woman's body for up to 36 hours after having sex, regardless of whether or not you use condoms. This suggests that happy couples may keep a steady supply of these happy chemicals circulating in their bodies by having sex leading to orgasm at least once every three days.

According to the new research findings from New York, a woman may enjoy a bonus mood boost from semen circulating in her body after having unprotected sex. That's uplifting news for post-menopausal women who aren't worried about getting pregnant. Even after childbearing years, exposure to STD's and HIV continues to be a health risk in having unprotected sex outside of a committed relationship with a monogamous partner.

How do you use this news if you are a single woman who is dating to find love, have children and create a happy family life?

You may not realize that being infected with even a treatable STD during unprotected sex can create scar tissue on your fallopian tubes which can prevent you from getting pregnant whenever you want to have a baby someday. So the choices you make while dating in college and thereafter have a long-term impact on your health and fertility. What choices will you make?

Will you always choose to protect your best health and well being? Or will you choose to expose yourself to the health risks and fleeting high you get from having unprotected sex?
