Unprotected Sex a Good Thing? Scientists Say So

Brittny Drye

coupleI think scientists are the ultimate wingmen. Using big words in a scientific sex study, they managed to make us believe that men don't need to work out -- in fact, fat men are actually better in bed -- and now, they're trying to get us to believe that we will literally be depressed without a nice big dose of their semen.

According to the study:

The finding that women who do not use condoms during sex are less depressed and less likely to attempt suicide than are women who have sex with condoms and women who are not sexually active, leads one researcher to conclude that semen contains powerful -- and potentially addictive -- mood-altering chemicals.

Boys, as amazing as you might be in bed, I'm pretty sure we're not going to want to kill ourselves if we don't get it. That's what vibrators are for.

But the men's scientists' study shows that the hormones contained in semen, such as testosterone, estrogen, prolactin, and prostaglandins, are absorbed through the vaginal walls and are known to elevate moods.

See, they're slick here. Not only are they hoping to get more sex out of us, but they're hoping to get more unprotected sex. Which is fine if you're in a committed relationship, but for those of us that aren't ... sorry, no amount of big words is going to make me want to do the freaky deaky without protection. Nice try though.

Guess I'll just have to be depressed.

Think the men are all in on this? What's your opinion on these ridiculous sex studies? Do you really get depressed from lack of semen?
