Is it healthy to eat sperm or just gross?

A study done of college students in New York found that semen is a good antidepressant.

While men like their women to give oral sex to them, some women find it gross and disgusting. Then there are women who would love to give oral sex to the men in their lives, but find it completely yucky to actually swallow the semen. So, what is right and what is wrong here? Should you be eating semen or should you not? Is eating semen healthy for you or is it just plain disgusting? Let’s explore the answers to these questions right here.

What does semen contain?

We all know that semen contains sperm, but that is only one percent of what makes a man’s seminal fluid. Some other ingredients that semen does include are water, fructose (sugar), prostglandin, vitamin C, zinc, protein, lactic acid, magnesium, calcium chlorine, citric acid, creatine, potassium, vitamin B12, sodium, nitrogen, and phosphorus.

Considering the above compounds, semen does seem to be quite a healthy thing to swallow.

Will swallowing semen make me fat?

However, many women are concerned about the fact that semen may make them gain weight. On an average, a man’s ejaculate contains approximately 5 to 25 calories, so it’s definitely not fattening at all.

Is semen a good source of protein?

As mentioned above, it definitely does contain protein. However, its protein content is roughly equal to the protein content of an egg white. So, if you are thinking of eating semen to get enough protein, why not just stick to the white portion of a large egg.

Can eating semen make me sick?

It shouldn’t unless you find it gross to swallow and just throw up because you find it disgusting to eat cum. However, if you are a woman and want to give oral sex to your man and swallow his semen, keep in mind that you do put yourself at risk of getting sexually-transmitted diseases.

The lining of the mouth is quite delicate, even more than that of the vagina, and it is much more susceptible to infections from bacteria and viruses. You can easily get infected with STDs such as chlamydia, genital herpes, gonorrhea, hepatitis B, and genital warts through oral sex.

If you trust your man to be in a monogamous relationship, it is probably fine to give oral sex and swallow semen. If you don’t, you are putting yourself in grave danger.

On the other hand, if you are a man, firstly make sure that you are in a monogamous relationship and you do not have any STDs. This will make oral sex and swallowing perfectly safe for the woman in your life.

What happens when a man eats his own sperm?

If you are a man who has just swallowed his semen, here is what happens to your sperm in that case. Your sperm gets broken down and gets absorbed into your bloodstream. It’s just like drinking water or milk. If you don’t have any STDs, it is perfectly safe to ingest your own semen.

However, if you are suffering from any sexual infections, avoid swallowing your own semen since it may spread to other parts of the body that may be vulnerable to more harm that your genital organs. So, avoid ingesting semen if you have STDs, especially chlamydia or gonorrhea.

Does semen really ease depression?

Well, it does seem so. A study done of college students in New York found that semen is a good antidepressant. Females who had sex without condoms reported having fewer signs of depression than women who used condoms or did not have sex at all. It is believed that the nutritious components present in the semen may get absorbed through the vagina into the bloodstream.

So, if you are eating it you are probably ingesting all the good nutrients as well. This is another reason to actually swallow the semen of your boyfriend.

What if I find swallowing semen as completely disgusting?

Well, then just don’t swallow it. While many women may actually like the taste of the semen, there are others who just hate its taste and throw up immediately with just a little taste of their partner’s fluids.

Of course, it may actually vary from one man to the other. If the man is drinking alcohol, smoking or eating bitter things, his semen is probably going to taste that way too. If he is eating fruits such as kiwis, pineapple, and watermelon, his semen is probably going to taste sweeter.

So, it depends on both the man and the woman. A woman may or may not like the taste. A man’s semen may not be as tasty as the semen of another man.

The bottom line here is that although semen may be nutritious, it does not provide you anything that you can’t get from your usual fruits, vegetables, fish, seeds, and nuts. So, if you are eating it because it is nutritious, you may as well go for foods rich in these nutrients.

If you are swallowing semen because you like its taste and you want to make your partner happy, you may as well as go ahead. However, make sure that your partner is not having sex with someone else.
