Some Dudes are Allergic to their Own Sperm.

According to a recent study by Marcel Waldinger, a professor of sexual psychopharmacology at Utrecht University in the Netherlands, men can be allergic to their own sperm. The condition in men is known as post-orgasmic illness syndrome or POIS and has been on scientists’ radars for nearly 10 years.  The symptoms usually present themselves immediately after ejaculating, sending its poor victim into violent fits of flu like symptoms such as sneezing, coughing, and shivering ultimately knocking him out with extreme fatigue which can last for up to an entire week every time they ejaculate. This makes for an excellent trick you can play on all of your sex partners.

But fear not victims of POIS, Marcel Waldinger believes he has found a cure. Waldinger enlisted 33 men affected by this disease to undergo a rather questionable study wherein the men were given a standard allergy test with their semen. Unsurprisingly, Marcel had originally enlisted 45 men to undergo this prick test but 12 guys told him he was cracked and left. Waldinger says, "(the subjects) didn't feel ill when they masturbated without ejaculating, but as soon as the semen came from the testes...after that they became ill, sometimes within just a few minutes.”

The second study, known as hyposensation therapy, was conducted on only two patients. In this examination, the men were injected with solution that contained more and more of their own semen throughout the course of a few years. Although this study sends me into a world of very graphic and rather nauseating images of giant penises, semen showers, semen sprays and super soakers, I’m happy to report that the two men now have reduced POIS symptoms. So if you seem to have flu like symptoms every time you jack off, take a shot of your spunk and eventually it will go away.

(Okay no don’t do that go to your doctor.)
