That's right…we had the same reaction. Let's just say it together.
There's a mysterious phenomenon in which some men come down with a flu-like illness immediately after having an orgasm and Dutch scientists are saying these men may be allergic to their own semen.
If that's true, that's a pretty unfortunate allergy.
The condition is known as post-orgasmic illness sydrome, or POIS and believe it or not, has been on scientists' radars for nearly 10 years
It's not commonly known by patients or doctors because experts suspect many men who experience the post-ejaculate sickness don't come forward and tell their doctor about it out of embarrassment.
Embarrassment? More like, confusion!
Who would ever guess they are allergic to their own semen?
In a study at Utrecht University in the Netherlands, thirty-three men agreed to undergo a skin-prick (no pun intended) allergy test using a diluted form of their own semen and a whopping 88 percent had a reaction indicating an allergic reaction!
Symptoms of POIS include fever, runny nose, extreme fatigue and burning eyes that come on straight after climax and can last up to a week.
This is shocking to say the least, but at least it will encourage men to last longer and maybe learn the art of tantric sex.
