Are YOU allergic to your own semen?

Semen allergy suspected in rare post-orgasm illness

LONDON (Reuters) - A mysterious syndrome in which men come down with a flu-like illness after an orgasm may be caused by an allergy to semen, Dutch scientists said on Monday.

Men with the condition, known as post orgasmic illness syndrome or POIS and documented in medical journals since 2002, get flu-like symptoms such as feverishness, runny nose, extreme fatigue and burning eyes immediately after they ejaculate. Symptoms can last for up to week.

Marcel Waldinger, a professor of sexual psychopharmacology at Utrecht University in the Netherlands, published two studies in the Journal of Sexual Medicine which suggest that men with POIS have an allergy to their own semen, and that a treatment known as hyposensitization therapy can help reduce its impact.

"Hyposensitization Therapy" =?= "SHUT UP AND SWALLOW."
Anyone ever think about how Richter inhabits the same reality as you and just scream and scream and scream, but in a good way?   :lulz:

That's really sad.
“I’m guessing it was January 2007, a meeting in Bethesda, we got a bag of bees and just started smashing them on the desk,” Charles Wick said. “It was very complicated.”

Hyposensitization Therapy = GET INJECTED WITH SMALL AMOUNTS OF YOUR OWN SEMEN FOR 5 YEARS!

And that is just how long they are willing to give you the shots, if you are still allergic after 5 years, you either suffer thru it or go celibate.  The study I saw said that if they couldn't relieve symptoms after 5 years, they showed no improvement in continued treatments in test subjects.

That sucks.  "I'm sorry, everytime you have fulfilling sex you will have an acute allergic reaction and be miserable for up to a week, and there is not a damn thing we can do..... "

How terrible is that?

That's even more bizarre.

Is it bad enough that you'd have nurses inject you with your own semen?

Well, my PowerPoints have been known to put people to sleep.  Does that count?
