Scientific American publishes an ode to semen

Scientific American publishes an ode to semen.

Those sickos at the Scientific American are at it again. Not content to disgust with their lurid tales of reverse combustion and human gesticulation, they've taken their perversion to a new level with a new article titled, "An Ode to the Many Evolved Virtues of Human Semen."

In it, research psychologist Jesse Bering regales us with findings from various studies down on the, um, matter. For example, his article tells of the "mind-alerting 'drugs' found in human semen" and of the "possible antidepressant effects of oral ingestion of semen," which sounds like a line every boy tried on their girlfriends in high school.

But I doubt many boys followed up with this:

Women who engaged in sex and "never" used condoms showed significantly fewer depressive symptoms than did those who "usually" or "always" used condoms. .. A smaller percentage (4.5 percent) of the sexually active women who "never" used condoms were likely to have attempted suicide than were those who "sometimes" (7.4 percent) and "usually" (28.9 percent) and "always" (13.2 percent) used condoms.

Since when did universities start bestowing research grants to horny, teenaged jocks? Nonetheless, check out the "ode" for yourself over here.
