Exposure to semen lower levels of depression in women – Study reveals



Though sex helps boost mental health in all genders, it’s women who benefit most from exposure to her partner’s semen. According to a 2002 study from the University at Albany, semen eases depression in women who are not using barrier methods of protection during penetrative sex.

Nearly 300 women were screened based on their mental health and sexual behavior, and UAlbany psychology professor Gordon Gallup found that “females who engaged in sexual intercourse but never used condoms exhibited significantly lower scores” in a depression screening than “those who usually or always used condoms.”

Of course, having safe sex and using protective measures against sexually transmitted infections is of the utmost importance.
