It has as many calories as a brownie?  As much protein as a pork chop?  It is good for your skin and fights depression?  I think it’s time to reign in the excitement, people, and look at some facts.  Long story short, semen in general is not a harmful substance and holds good nutritional value.  The downfall is, whatever goodness exists in semen exists in very small, limited doses so reaping the benefits is not always easy or reasonable.  Let’s lay down the facts right now so the next time you hear your boyfriend urge you to swallow for the “sake of breast cancer” you have the proper information to form a rebuttal.

What composes semen?

The average ejaculation is about a teaspoon in size (this can vary based on the man’s age, health, last time of ejaculation and other factors) and consists of about 1% sperm.  The other 99% is water, protein, hormones, vitamins, sugars and fat.

 Would I be better off just eating a brownie?

Despite what everyone seems to say, one ejaculation of semen contains only 2-5 calories.  One 2″ square, regular brownie contains 253 calories so NO, eating a brownie is not better for you.

 It’s as hearty as a pork chop!

Again, I’m not sure why people seem to think this but it is not accurate information.  On average, there’s about 150 mg of protein in one ejaculation.  A pork chop, a hamburger patty, and a steak all have well over 20 grams of protein (20 grams is equal to 20,000 mg).  That means you would have to ingest 130 ejaculations in one setting to even get close to the amount of protein you would consume in one steak.  So… NO.  Semen is not as hearty as a pork chop.

Does what you eat matter?

It’s been pretty well established through small experiments that you can alter the way semen (and vaginal fluid) tastes by what you eat.  In fact, all the body’s secretions such as sweat, saliva, and urine are affected by what you eat.  If you want to taste pleasant, you should stay away from spicy food, strong flavors (like garlic and asparagus), alcohol, cigarettes, sugars, processed fats and food with preservatives.  So basically everything we love to eat!

Instead, you should drink fruit juice and water constantly, eat fresh veggies (celery especially) and fruits and even bask in the vegan life with some wheatgrass.  It takes about 24 hours for the body to secrete what it has absorbed so give it a couple of days before trying it out.  Here’s a good spunky (get it? :)) smoothie that should make you taste fresh and sweet:

1 cup pineapple, fresh or canned

1 banana, frozen

1 cup apple juice

1/2 tsp ginger

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp nutmeg

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

2 TBS honey

Does it fight cancer?

In October 2003, an article showed up on CNN and quickly spread around the world like wildfire.  It claimed a study at North Carolina State University found fellatio could significantly decrease a woman’s risk of breast cancer.  But within a week, Brandon Williamson, the student who wrote the mock report, responded to legal threats by apologizing to his university, to CNN and to “all men who did not take advantage of this article in time to get head”.  Anyone who read the report might have picked up on some of the clues pointing toward a hoax.  Williamson mentions a medical journal that does not even exist and states testimonials from women such as “I try to fellate every night with my husband.”  Really?  “Fellate?”

Back in the real world of science, studies have shown that the more a woman is exposed to her partner’s semen, the less likely her body is to attack it.  Semen is treated as a foreign invader once inside the woman’s body (this is why some women can have allergic reactions to their partner’s semen).  One study found if a pregnant woman performed fellatio regularly, she was less likely to suffer from high blood pressure than those who did not.  This is mainly because sperm contains a growth factor that persuades the mother’s immune system to accept the sperm (so her body does not fight the “invader”, resulting in a steady blood pressure).

As for the link to cancer, it’s just possible that semen could have some effect on cancer of the cervix or ovaries.  There’s research showing oral delivery of TGFbeta (transforming growth factor beta), one of the key molecules in semen, can increase the number and activity of “natural killer” cells that are important in recognizing and killing aberrant cells that give rise to tumors.  An alternative source of TGFbeta is cow’s milk, which for many women is far easier to swallow.  Plus there are pharmaceutical companies working on freeze-dried semen products, in tablet form.  So, semen doesn’t seem to offer anything you can’t find somewhere else.

A teaspoon a day keeps the gloom away?

In 2002, Gordon Gallup conducted a study of 293 female students at the State University of New York to determine if semen had an effect on a female’s mood.  He assessed their happiness using the Beck Depression Inventory, a standard questionnaire for assessing mood.  People who score over 17 are considered moderately depressed.  The team found that women whose partners never used condoms scored 8 on average, those who sometimes used them scored 10.5, those who usually used them scored 15 and those who always used them scored 11.3. Women who weren’t having sex at all scored 13.5.

The researchers looked at alternative explanations such as whether women who seldom use condoms took oral contraceptives, how often they had sex, the strength of relationships, and the possibility that having a certain type of personality influenced the decision to use condoms.  But none of these factors can explain their findings, they say.  The results aren’t a complete surprise because semen does contain several mood-altering hormones, including testosterone, estrogen, follicle-stimulating hormone, luteinising hormone, prolactin and several different prostaglandins.  Some of these have been detected in a women’s blood within hours of exposure to semen.  However, a broader population needs to be studied before conclusively stating that “semen cures depression.”

But no one is saying you have to wait for those studies!  So go have some condom-free sex (as long as you’re certain you and your partner are STD clear) and get happy!

 I’ll never have acne again!

Umm… hold the thought.  There have not been any conclusive studies on the benefit of semen on your skin.  Some people claim they experimented with it and it did nothing; others swear by the positive effects, stating it helps reduce wrinkles.  This is only semi-true.  Semen dries as a thin film that has a tightening affect.  However, if left on the skin, semen generally changes from liquid to a glue-like solid back to liquid again within a 5-40 minute time frame.  But even if it did not change back into a liquid state, as I’m sure most people know, the minute you are exposed to water your wrinkle-friendly regimen is going to come right off.  So yes… your wrinkles might appear minimized as long as you’re not sweating or caught in the rain.

The fact remains semen is still not a sure way to get nice looking skin.  However, some beauty companies have decided to take advantage of this idea and turn it into a marketing madhouse.  The Townhouse Spa in New York is using spermine in many of their products, a powerful anti-oxidant originally discovered in human sperm that is said to diminish wrinkles and smooth the skin.

Before you get slap happy and rub semen all over your face, please know that the substance is being synthesized in laboratories, therefore it is not the all natural, low-potent goodness we are familiar with at home.  The skin does not readily absorb semen either, so the treatment involves penetration with ultrasound and infrared light at the spa for a hefty price: $300.

One Response to Semen: Nutritional Value?

  1. Jean Fairbanks says:

    Funny I get the same results just by eating a nice slice of key lime pie from the beautiful and very sexy and lovely Anita Pelaez and her gorgeously handsome husband Kutchie Pelaez. Together that sexy loving married partner working team bake a key lime pie that will knock your socks off and pretty much every other stitch of clothing you my have on. That pie beats the hell out of any brownies you could find. I can tell that by the amount of semen that my husband ejaculates, no teaspoon with Frankie, more like a half of a pint, at the very least he serves me with nearly 18-20 long strings of heavy thick cum after he eats one slice of the pie. I just love it to no end! If I blow him in the morning before I go to work I don’t even get hungry until about 2:00, 2-hours after lunch time. Some say about the amount of protein being a pork chop? After swallowing Frankie’s load I feel like I had just finished a large prime rib dinner with a baked potato. How could any man be so nourishing from a single blow job? I never gain any extra weight from eating his loads either. As for depression, that’s something that doesn’t occur at our home. With Frankie’s love potion, I have sunshine on a cloudy day and when it’s cold outside I’ve even got the month of May. I guess you could say semen makes me feel this way, my man talking about my man, he’s so great and makes me feel this way.
    The key lime pie also making my Frankie’s love juice taste like a gift from God, I can’t ever get enough so I blow him again after he comes home from his job. You know we will have more pie for dessert after dinner, that always fills his reservoirs back up and has him ready again for me to devour him again the next morning.

    As for the cancer question, Frankie shouldn’t ever have to worry about prostate cancer cause I keep that cleaned out twice a day. And I am swallowing enough TGF-Beta to keep 20 or more women cancer free. That is if all the studies are correct. My skin is as smooth and wrinkle free as it was when I was 18 years old, that was about 35 years ago. I do not need those $300 salon treatments, I can get those at home anytime for free. Frankie shoots enough for a full body treatment in just one ejaculation, hell if I bottled it a few time a week we could sell it and quit our jobs and stay home all day and just eat Anita’s and Kutchie’s key lime pie and make love all day! Interesting thought and it sounds like fun doesn’t it? If we could get Anita’s and Kutchie’s secret key lime pie recipe we could bake our own pies and save even more money. But that would never happen in a million years. People have been trying to come-up with a pie as good as there’s like forever, it just ain’t going to happen.

    So Ladies and Men, keep your immune systems up and strong to fight any invaders that might want to attack you. And have some fantastic fun with your loving spouse twice a day as the both of you hold each other tightly in each-others arms as you drift away into the euphoric erotic bliss that you can only experience with the Magic of Anita and Kutchie Pelaez’s Key Lime Pies.

    It sure works for Frankie and Me, It didn’t just change our love life for the better it brought Frankie and me closer together than we have ever been before. Now there are no doubts that we will be soul-mates through-out eternity. Praise the Lord and thanks to Anita and Kutchie Pelaez, we love you guys and your key lime pies.

    Frankie and Jean
