Semen Therapy
Swallowing the semen of a healthy man more than twice a week.

Welcome to the site.
SemenTherapy.com has been the portal to scientific research into the health benefits of swallowing semen for more than ten years.
The purpose is to collect referances to scientific studies of the health benefits to women of swallowing loads of semen from healthy men every week.

There is no doubt of benefits such as; increased longevity, reduction of risk of cancer (by 50% for breast cancer), reduction of cases of miscarriage (and even death of the mother) due to pre-eclampsia, anti-aging properties, acne control, easing of depression, mood enhancement, reducing effects of PMS, mitigating morning sicksness, supressing appitite and increasing bonding in realationships.
Also research into large frequency swallowing loads of semen (with every meal) as a trigger of cachexia causing mass weight loss in obese woman and it's possible use as a treatment (cure?) for diabetes.

Because of the courage of qualified medical research teams, Semen Therapy promises to ease the suffering of millions.

Semen Health Benefits: It Really Does Have All The Nutrients Of A Protein Shake

How's this for your protein shake: fructose sugar, water, ascorbic acid, citric acid, enzymes, protein, zinc and more. Those are nutrients found in human male ejaculate.

New research found that numerous species consume semen for its health benefits, and human seed might as well be viable as a superfood, Discovery News reports.

Female squid, for example, consume excess sperm as if it were food. So do carrion flies, certain types of leeches, picture wing flies and other creatures.

For the first time, scientists have started tracking how these species utilize the nutrients in sperm. The study was published in the journal Biology Letters by lead author Benjamin Wegener, a researcher at Monash University in Australia.

That doesn't necessarily mean humans should start feasting during foreplay, but if we did, there are plenty of resources out there to make the experience more enjoyable.

There's "Semenology," a book dedicated for the bartender in your life who also happens to enjoy concocting semen cocktails. "Natural Harvest," on the other hand, is a collection of semen-based recipes (and is actually getting good reviews). Heck, Heather Locklear says it has anti-aging benefits.





Based on article By Jennifer Viegas, Discovery News


Wegener said that ejaculate consumption is well-documented among numerous species. Humans are included in that group...

According to Columbia Health, human male ejaculate contains fructose sugar, water, ascorbic acid (a.k.a. Vitamin C), citric acid, enzymes, protein, zinc and more. It reads like the list of ingredients for a protein-infused sports drink.

He agrees that the behavior can put pressure on the males, which have to balance providing enough sperm for fertilization, but perhaps not so much that females start to rely upon it as a regular "tempting meal."

Quoting Benjamin Wegener, a researcher at Monash University’s School of Biological Sciences

"As the authors point out," Tregenza added, "she might even choose to eat the sperm packets from less attractive males and use the sperm from more attractive ones for fertilizing her eggs."

An individual's gametes (cells of reproduction (ed.)) can represent a nourishing food source for a manipulative mate.

Here, we provide evidence of ejaculate and sperm consumption

we found that female(s)... consumed the spermatophores of their partners and directed the nutrients received into both somatic maintenance (body health (ed.)) and egg production.

Despite ejaculate consumption being well documented in nature (see reviews by 1 – 4) ...



sperm consumption is rare. Where it has been found... females may consume a portion of these ejaculates post-copulation (after intercourse (ed.)).

Study in Austria: Compound in sperm may increase life span
London, UK -- The secret to a long life may lie in the human sperm now.

In a new study conducted by Graz University scientists in Austria, it has been found that a compound called spermidine, which is found is human sperms, could be the next step in the fight against aging.

This compound helps fight aging by slowing the process itself, and thus increases longevity in flies, mice, yeast, worms, and most importantly human blood cells, by protecting them from getting damaged.

Reversing the damage
Researchers have said that aging takes place when autophagy, that is the process of repairing or recycling the damaged cells of parts of cells, no longer happens properly. This process maintains a balance in the growth and regeneration of cells.

Their claim is strengthened by the fact that with age, the concentration of spermidine reduces in the human body.

The scientists found that adding spermidine led to suppression of various aging processes in the cells. It reduces free radicals and increases the life span of the cells.

The study and its findings
They conducted the study by applying spermidine to aging yeast cells, adding it to the diet of fruit fly and nematode worm, giving mice drinking water with spermidine in it for 200 days, and lastly comparing human blood cells treated with the compound to those which were not treated.

Research on fruit flies indicated an additional life span of 30 percent in the spermidine treated specimen than the untreated specimen.

Worms also showed a similar pattern, with an increase in life span by 15 percent.

Researcher Tony Eisenberg has called the study the "holy grail of age research".

Anti-aging pill still far-fetched
The importance of the research is unquestionable, but the claims by a British newspaper that an anti-aging pill is going to hit the markets is far from true. Even human trials cannot be seen in conceivable future.

It will take many more years of testing, short-term and long-term clinical trials, and animal studies to confirm the safety, the cost, and the side-effects of such a treatment.






Semen Therapy Fights Cancer:

Semen reduces the risk of breast cancer "not less than 50%" in married women
Study "www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/566883" shows that "semen exposure" reduces the risk of breast cancer "not less than 50%"



The risk of developing breast cancer is 5 times greater for women deprived of semen
University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine Department of Research Medicine
A case-control study was conducted in order to test the hypothesis that a reduced exposure to human seminal factors in the early reproductive life of women is a risk factor in breast cancer.
The relative risk of exposure to the hypothetical semen-factor deficiency is 4.7 times greater for breast-cancer patients than for the controls.
When the contraceptive methods alone are taken into account, the relative risk increases up to 5.3.
About 16 percent of the women using barrier methods (condom, and other)
and 3.4 percent of women using non-barrier contraceptive methods (diaphragm, pill, IUDs, rhythm, tubal ligation, and other) would develop breast cancer.
The risk of developing breast cancer within the same population in the U.S. is 5 times greater in women who use barrier methods than in women who use non-barrier contraceptive methods.
The reduction in the incidence of breast cancer by eliminating the barrier contraceptive techniques would be not less than 50 percent in married women in the entire population.
The possibility of preventive measures within an adequate family planning program is emphasized.




The risk of developing breast cancer significantly decreased with a longer duration of direct exposure to human semen.
Journal of Clinical Epidemiology
Detailed analysis... showed that the risk of breast cancer increased with a longer duration of use of barrier methods (withdrawal or condom).
Conversely, the risk significantly decreased with a longer duration of use of... methods allowing a direct exposure to human semen.




Semen contains Selenium and Glycoproteins, powerful cancer fighters
Selenium is effective in inducing lymphocyte progression through cell cycle in cancer patients: potential mechanisms for its activity.


We will review the compounds with anti-tumor potential identified so far in mushrooms, including low-molecular-weight (LMW, e.g. quinones, cerebrosides, isoflavones, catechols, amines, triacylglycerols, sesquiterpenes, steroids, organic germanium and selenium) and high-molecular-weight compounds (HMW, e.g. homo and heteroglucans, glycans, glycoproteins, glycopeptides, proteoglycans, proteins and RNA-protein complexes).

TGFbeta cells in semen help by preventing the formation of tumors.
"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 which are important in recognizing and killing aberrant cells that give rise to tumors.

An Adelaide University researcher, Dr Sarah Robertson, a leading Australian scientist working in the fertility area, is involved in animal research showing TGFbeta activates an inflammatory response in the cervix and ovaries after intercourse, which may lead to increased activity in these killer cells, guarding against cancer.




Donating Semen Therapy keeps men from getting prostate cancer
A Melbourne research team led by Graham Giles, from the Cancer Council Victoria. Giles's team has found men can reduce their risk of prostate cancer through regular ejaculation.

Comparing the sexual habits of a group of 1000 men who had developed prostate cancer with 1250 who had not, they found men who ejaculated more than five times a week were a third less likely to develop prostate cancer later in life. Regular ejaculation may prevent carcinogens accumulating in the prostate gland, suggest the researchers.



For those who have cancer
A study in Journal of Endocrinology cautions that women with cervical cancer or uterine cancer or Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) Semen 'aggravates cervical cancer' because tumors in the cervix and womb have prostaglandin receptors on their surfaces BBC news explains "But a cancer expert said the chances of unprotected sex affecting a patient's outcome was "slight"." cancercommentary.com explains "Cervical cancer is usually triggered by long-term exposure to HPV and is not caused by prostaglandins."

Throat or mouth cancer would likewise be aggravated by concentrated semen swallowing.
Anyone with tumors in their mouth or throat should dilute semen in a large drink.




Swallowing Semen Makes You Happy

Ingredients in semen... include mood enhancers like estrone, cortisol, prolactin, oxytocin, and serotonin; a sleep enhancer, melatonin; and of course, sperm, which makes up only 1%-5%.

Female college students having unprotected sex (exposure to semen) were significantly less depressed than were those whose partners used condoms (Arch. Sex. Behav. 2002;31:289-93).

Their better moods were not just a feature of promiscuity, because women using condoms were just as depressed as those practicing total abstinence (no semen).

The benefits of semen contact also were seen in fewer suicide attempts and better performance on cognition tests (IQ tests).

So there’s a deeper bond between men and women than St. Valentine would have suspected, and now we know there’s a better gift for that day than chocolates.

Popular Science agrees! Controversial Ideas: Does Semen Act As an Antidepressant to the Recipient?
Popular Science


Psychology Today: Attention, Ladies: Semen Is An Antidepressant
seminal fluid: mostly water, plus about 50 compounds: sugar (to nourish sperm), immunosuppressants (to keep women's immune systems from destroying sperm), and oddly, two female sex hormones, and many mood-elevating compounds: endorphins, estrone, prolactin, oxytocin, thyrotrpin-releasing hormone, and serotonin.

So it appears quite possible that the antidepressants in semen might have a real mood-elevating effect.
...this effect might come in handy for women over age 50, who are experiencing menopausal blues.






Semen Therapy makes pregnancy safer
"Oral sex (with semen swallowing) makes pregnancies safer." It's true, research by Professor Gus Dekker, a maternal-fetal medicine specialist at the University of Adelaide, shows. Dekker compared 41 pregnant women with pre-eclampsia - a condition where the mother's blood pressure soars during pregnancy - to 44 without.

He found 82 per cent of those without the condition practiced fellatio compared with 44 per cent of those with it. The explanation? Semen contains a growth factor which helps persuade a mother's immune system to accept sperm. Regular exposure before pregnancy helps her immune system get used to her partner's sperm.



Wikipedia: Pre-eclampsia, Treatment and prevention, Fellatio (with semen swallowing)

It has been suggested that fellatio may, through "immune modulation", BBC News [35] have a beneficial role in preventing dangerous complications during pregnancy, reducing specifically the risk of miscarriage and pre-eclampsia. Specifically, several research groups (Koelman, CA; et al. (2000). "Correlation between oral sex and a low incidence of pre-eclampsia: A role for soluble HLA in seminal fluid?". Journal of Reproductive Immunology 46 (2): 155–166. DOI:10.1016/S0165-0378(99)00062-5. PMID 10706945.)[36]
have reported that pre-eclampsia, a life threatening complication that sometimes arises in pregnancy, is much less frequent in couples who have practiced oral sex, and even more rare in couples where fellatio regularly ended with a woman's swallowing of her partner's semen.

The results were statistically significant and are consistent with the fact that semen contains several agents that have important roles in the prevention of pre-eclampsia, which may arise out of an immunological condition.[35][37][38]
According to that view, pre-eclampsia is caused by a failure of the mother to accept the fetus and placenta, which both contain "foreign" proteins from the father's genes.

Regular exposure to the father's semen helps cause immunological tolerance to their proteins. Other studies also found that, while any exposure to the partner's sperm during sex appears to decrease the chances of various disorders, women in couples who have practiced "sex acts other than intercourse" are less than half as likely to suffer pre-eclampsia.




Pregnant women who continue getting semen from the baby's father have less morning sickness
To understand where he’s coming from, we need to think back to the maternal immune system’s response to the fetus. Because half of the DNA the fetus is carrying comes from the father, the mother’s body may initially treat the organism as foreign tissue or an infection.

This response, Gallup says, triggers an immune reaction that is commonly experienced as nausea, vomiting, and malaise (aka morning sickness). The best cure for this type of sickness, says Gallup, is, strangely enough, the same thing as its cause.

The more exposure a woman has to her partner’s semen -- that is to say, the more often she’s inseminated prior to conception and during the early stages of the pregnancy -- the more tolerance her body develops to his genetic material. This tolerance generalizes to a tolerance for the fetus and leads to successful maternal immunosuppression -- and subsequently allows her to feel less like an infected zombie with serious stomach troubles.

Here is where Gallup’s reputation as an innovative -- if often highly speculative -- evolutionary theorist comes into the picture. Gallup surmises that pregnancy sickness is not itself an adaptation, but instead a side effect of a broader maternal adaptation for favoring the best possible mates. He suggests that this broader adaptation serves primarily to facilitate reproduction with males that are likely to support mother and child (in evolutionary terms, to invest in the offspring), while weeding out the players.   In previous work, Gallup has shown that women are more likely to develop preeclampsia -- and thus have a higher infant mortality risk -- in pregnancies resulting from unfamiliar semen. Historically, these would have included rape and “dishonest mating strategies” (tactics in which the man lies to the woman about his long-term intentions just to get into her pants) as well as unplanned conception occurring in a new, still-fragile relationship.   From the point of view of Mother Nature’s cold, cold heart, spontaneous abortions due to a reaction against unfamiliar semen might have been biologically adaptive. This is because conception and childbirth historically meant that a woman foreclosed on any other reproductive opportunities for 2 to 4 years, so pregnancies in which paternal investment was improbable would have meant an enormous gamble.   Today, however, technological innovations such as barrier contraceptives (condoms reduce a woman’s exposure to semen that would otherwise become familiar) and artificial insemination mimic some ancestral conditions. The maternal immune system has no way to distinguish between, say, conception by in vitro fertilization and rape.

Still, while it may very well work wonders in curtailing nausea and vomiting in your next pregnancy, it’s probably too early to suggest imbibing copious amounts of your partner’s semen, either vaginally or orally (there is some evidence, believe it or not, that fellatio may be just as effective as vaginal insemination for priming the woman’s body with the man’s protein, activating maternal immunosuppression in preparation for a child.) Your partner might think it’s worth a shot, though.

Improve sense of smell, reduce risk of heart disease, aid in weight loss, pain relief and soothing PMS symptoms and even help people live longer.
Then there's a study showing women are less depressed if they have sex without condoms and another showing regular sex helps to avoid colds. While the research method used for the depression study is rather shaky, both studies, Robertson says, are based on legitimate scientific reasoning.

There's also research suggesting regular sex can improve sense of smell, reduce risk of heart disease, aid in weight loss, pain relief and soothing PMS symptoms and even help people live longer.




Donating Semen Therapy to a woman to swallow four (4) hours before intercourse increases the quality of sperm.
Women who are trying to get pregnant should swallow an ejaculation first, then four (4) hours later receive the improved sperm by intercourse.
The couple should have intercourse again four (4) hours later, if the man can be enticed to perform it.




Zinc from Semen Therapy (Zinc Alpha 2 Glycoprotein - ZAG) clears up acne

A study about ZAG and shedding of skin cells: Another enzyme that we have shown to participate in desquamation of normal skin is ZAG (38) . We had previously shown that ZAG expresses enzymatic activity (44) and that it plays a role in stratum corneum cohesion (45) . ZAG also has ribonuclease activity (46) and it participates in the destruction of nuclei in terminally differentiating keratinocytes (47)

desquamation = shedding of skin cells. keratinocyte = most common type of skin cell.
source

Also has a role in melanin production and skin cancer:

Sperm contains an enzyme called Zinc-alpha2-glycoprotein, which is also the enzyme in the skin responsible for allowing skin cells to shed properly. It is already known that acne sufferers are a bit deficient in this specific enzyme, which is the cause of there being an excess of dead skin cells for those with acne. The dead skin cells then build up, get all glued together with oil, and block your pores.

" Sure, other vitamins and minerals help. But zinc does the heavy lifting. It's linked to your fertility, potency, sex drive and long-term sexual health. The mineral is critical to sperm production, and low zinc stores have been blamed for decreases in semen volume and testosterone levels, explains Sara Brewer, M.D., author of Better Sex. "Each ejaculation can expend up to 5 milligrams of zinc, or one-third of your daily allowance," Dr. Brewer says. Luckily, zinc is easy to come by. Four ounces of lean beef provide half the daily requirement, and a single oyster gives you the whole shebang. Turkey, cereals and beans are other good sources.


Semen has anti-microbial (antibacterial) properties; ALTRUINS

Abstract: Long term objectives. To discover the endogenous antimicrobial effector molecules of humans, and to define their structures and mechanisms of action. This proposal deals with antimicrobial peptides of the male genital tract, an area where remarkably little information currently exists. Hypotheses. Normal human semen contains proteins with latent antimicrobial domains that are activated by serine and aspartyl proteases found in normal semen. The resulting peptides ("altruins") can protect the female from infection by bacteria introduced into the vagina during intercourse.





Obesity; Semen contains alpha 2 glycoprotein (ZAG) Could this be the cure to obesity?

UK Dailymail: British researchers are trying to develop a pill which could be used to treat obesity without the slimmer having to cut down on what they eat, it was announced.

The team at Aston University in Birmingham are looking at the role of a protein, called zinc alpha 2 glycoprotein (ZAG), which appears to promote weight loss without an obese person having to reduce their food intake.

This happens because the protein targets fat breakdown while not affecting muscle mass. Professor Mike Tisdale said their long-term plan was to try to turn ZAG into a treatment, such as a tablet, to treat obesity.

ZAG, a soluble protein, is present in most body fluids and in most normal tissues of the body. But the protein is also involved in a process called cachexia - the weight loss that happens in some cancer patients.

During cachexia, ZAG production is increased 10-fold, causing the movement of fat from adipose tissue which is used to produce heat rather than energy.

This can lead to cancer patients losing 85 per cent of their body fat. This fat mobilisation is normally linked to energy demand, so anything which disrupts this process will lead to progressive fat loss.

The process has been extensively examined by Prof Tisdale, leading him to use the protein to target obesity.

ZAG also has potential to be used to treat diabetes because it also lowers blood sugar levels.



"We are a little way off a clinical trial now and our long-term plan is to develop a suitable delivery method, perhaps a tablet, that will enable us to turn ZAG protein into a commercial treatment for obesity," Professor Tisdale said.

Semen Curbs Appetite
I do believe that it curbs your hunger as I found it out quite by accident. My boyfriend of 6 years and I were making love one morning and he wanted to finish in my mouth so I said sure and I swallowed it. Once we were done I got up took shower and got ready for work, I had to be there for 8a. I was running late and hadn't had time for breakfast I didn't realize I wasn't hungry until around 10a and then I sat there completely puzzled because I couldn't understand why as I hadn't had my Red Bull or Monster or Starbucks which normally curbs my appetite in the morning, I hadn't even drank any water until I remembered he only thing I had swallowed that morning was his cum. I was hungry till almost noon when I normally had lunch. I thought it was a fluke so I tried 2 more times just to be sure ( you can imagine my boyfriend was only too happy to help me conduct my experiment) so it actually does work, but I don't recommend swallowing cum on a consistent basis or running around giving every guy you meet a blow job as part of your weight loss program either. But it does work

Lesbians at higher risk for obesity: study
The Toronto Star
Reuters

WASHINGTON – Lesbians are twice as likely as heterosexual women to be overweight or obese, which puts them at greater risk for obesity-related health problems and death, U.S. researchers said.

The report, published in the American Journal of Public Health, is one of the first large studies to look at obesity among lesbians.

Ulrike Boehmer of the Boston University School of Public Health and colleagues looked at a 2002 national survey of almost 6,000 women, and found that lesbians were 2.69 times more likely to be overweight and 2.47 times more likely to be obese.

"Lesbians have more than twice the odds of (being) overweight," the authors wrote. This would put them at a higher risk for diabetes and heart disease, among other ailments.

"Our findings indicate that lesbian sexual identity is linked to a greater prevalence of overweight and obesity," the authors wrote in the study, released this week.

They reviewed smaller studies that have suggested a higher prevalence of obesity among lesbians and the possible reasons why.

"The results of these studies indicate that lesbian women have a better body image than do heterosexual women," they wrote.

But the authors said they placed little confidence in the idea that lesbians were more muscular than straight women, and thus were more likely to have a high body mass index, or BMI, while having little body fat.

High muscle mass is "unlikely to lead to classification as obese," the researchers said.

"We reported greater odds of both overweight and obesity in lesbians and we feel confident in asserting that these differences are a result of increased adiposity," the researchers wrote.

Semen Allergy
A very rare condition (0.1% pop) causes women's skin to react when exposed to semen.
This condition clears up with successive exposure.
If discomfort is reported, exposure to small amounts or diluted semen should occur frequently until tolerance is achieved.

"Women allergic to their partner's semen can be cured by treatments requiring frequent sex, a New York allergist says.
But don't try it without a doctor's help. Without proper desensitization, sex can be deadly for some women allergic to semen.
Such women may suffer genital itching, burning, and swelling. In severe cases, they may break out in hives or even have trouble breathing."



Semen allergy is a rare but often-misdiagnosed condition that can masquerade as a common yeast or herpes infection. Not surprisingly, the associated pain, redness, burning and swelling can wreak havoc on some relationships

Allergy to human seminal plasma (HSP) is rare.
It presents with a variety of symptoms, ranging from localized changes to generalized reactions or even anaphylactic shock.
Symptoms typically start within minutes to one hour after exposure.
Diagnosis is based on history, evidence of specific IgE antibodies and skin prick testing (SPT).

A 25-year-old Caucasian woman presented with eyelid swelling, generalized urticaria and dyspnea immediately after unprotected coitus with her partner.
No symptoms occurred when barrier contraception was used.

SPTand IgE testing (ImmunoCAP) demonstrated sensitization to HSP and dog dander.

The patient's self-designed desensitization protocol, consisting of H1 blocker premedication
followed by unprotected sexual intercourse,
ameliorated her systemic reactions gradually and reduced the frequency of emergency hospital visits.

She had a known allergy to male but not female dogs, and was highly sensitized to dog allergen Can f 5, a protein homologous to human prostate-specific antigen (PSA), suggesting a possible link to her HSP allergy.
