Based on this post’s sexy headline, I could have selected today’s picture from an entirely different category, but I’d rather not get slapped with one of those “mature audience” labels. I know it works for some people, but still. I try to keep it somewhat fucking classy.
IN THE NEWS: “Some poor men are apparently allergic to their own semen, developing a mysterious flu-like illness after they have an ejaculation. The condition, known as post-orgasmic illness syndrome, has been documented since 2002. Symptoms include feverishness, runny nose, extreme fatigue and burning eyes, which can last for up to a week. Some physicians had suggested that the disorder was psychosomatic, but Marcel Waldinger, a professor of sexual psychopharmacology at Utrecht University in the Netherlands, and his colleagues demonstrated in two papers in the Journal of Sexual Medicine that the syndrome was allergic in nature and that it might be possible to desensitize men to the problem.”
I try not to junk up this space with a bunch of science, but basically they “demonstrated” the allergy by a “standard skin-prick allergy test using a diluted from of their own semen.”
Um, yah…they injected them with their own man chowder! I thought that was worth noting, because it’s fun when we share. Oh, and also, men in the study with the symptoms came back with a positive allergic reaction. So that basically proves that notion.
In our day to day, we forget some of life’s simple pleasures. Just be glad you can get off without inducing a week-long illness!
