“Should I be swallowing?”, has been a hot question since quite a while now. Most women we’ve asked claim to love it, watching their partner get off like that while others just think it’s plain gross. But what does science have to say about this conundrum? Is it good or bad for your body, or does it simply have no effect on your system whatsoever? Let’s find out.
Let’s start of with the nutritional aspect of what happens when a man’s ejaculate is ingested. Semen, contrary to popular belief, makes up only 1% of the substance. About 80% of it is made up of water, and protein, amino acids, fructose, glucose, zinc, calcium, vitamin C, etc. are just some of its other components. Sperm cell count adds up to less than 1%.
Is it safe? On an average, it’s actually pretty safe, unless the guy has some sort of STD. This can get a little messed up since the lining of your mouth is more sensitive and thus more prone to infections than the lining of a vagina. So make sure that whoever is on the receiving end of the blowjob has been tested for some STD or STI.
What happens when you swallow? Nothing special, actually. It travels down your esophagus and is digested like any other food your body can digest.
How does it/should it taste? That answer is a little more complex than the rest, but most of it depends on what you’re eating. According to a 2002 research results, smokers and alcohol consumers produce a bitter tasting ejaculate, while it can be mildly sweet if a vegetarian diet is followed. If it’s overly sweet, there’s a chance that one might be diabetic. Also, pineapples do make semen taste a little mild. It’s true.
There are many myths about the pros of ingesting semen, but most of them stand unproven. The National Health Survey (NHS) of UK has concluded though that ingesting semen can reduce depression in women. The study also says that exposure to semen is linked to better health in human beings. The Medical Daily points out that semen contains mood-elevating estrone and oxytocin, cortisol, melatonin, anti-depressant prolactin, thyrotropin releasing hormone and serotonin.
Also, the body of a pregnant women initially rejects the foreign nature of the semen inside her. According to Tony More, the body reacts by inducing the woman to vomit, thereby causing morning sickness. Introduction of sperm into the mouth of a woman helps the body get better accustomed to pregnancy, thereby alleviating the sordid effects of morning sickness.
So in conclusion, nor is swallowing just not bad, it’s actually pretty good for your system. Doesn’t matter if you’re a guy or girl, some jazz might actually do you some good!
