Semen is bad for your complexion

Regardless of whether you are a guy or gal, you would have definitely heard someone claim that semen is nutritious and good for your complexion. In the TV series Nip/Tuck, the owners of a health and beauty center accidentally mixed semen into a facial cream and the were impressed by the results of the cream.

The truth of the matter is: semen is not particularly nutritious and neither is it good for complexion. The myth was probably made up by guys to convince gals to swallow their semen.

Semen contains sperm, testosterone, protein, water, uric acid, sugar, calcium, chlorine, magnesium, nitrogen, vitamin B12, zinc, etc. However, it does not contain enough of any of the "good" things to be considered "nutritious."

Semen is rich in testosterone. Excessive testosterone is one of the causes of acne. Testosterone in semen that is swallowed/ingested has no effect on complexion because the digestive acid in the stomach destroys it. However, I've heard that some guys tried apply semen directly to their skin to treat acne. These guys would most likely find their acne worsening. Direct application of testosterone, which can be absorbed through the skin, is certainly not advisable. Besides, do uric acid, zinc and chlorine sound like they're good for the skin? Some people enjoy facial cumshot or cum facial (the guy(s) ejaculate on the gal's). I’d advise gals to wash off the semen asap to minimize the negative effects on their skin.

On the other hand, female juices contain estrogen which is good for the skin. So there's no reason why guys shouldn't give oral sex or allow gals to sit on their faces!

I am not sure whether it is really the testosterone or the bacteria that makes the skin worse though.

The extent to what some people will do to get rid of acne. lol

Now I've read that semen has an antidepressant effect in women after intercourse (not oral).

That could be from transference of testosterone or perhaps some other chemical.

A most interesting post.

I am not sure of your main point; "semen is not particularly nutritious and neither is it good for complexion", or the potential nutrients semen contains.

There are greater dangers for women who have many partners. This danger exist if a male is not honest about his health.

Read the Q & A below.


Dr. Fulbright,
Are there any health risks or hazards associated the oral consumption of semen? Thank you so much and I hope that you have a wonderful day.

Dear Zach,
This is often a matter of debate for lovers, especially since oral sex has been misrepresented as a low risk form of sex. Anytime semen is deposited into the mouth, there is a risk of getting a sexually transmitted infection. Possible infections include gonorrhea, syphilis, HIV, herpes, hepatitis B, human papilloma virus (HPV), and CMV. To reduce the risk of infection, a latex condom should be worn over the penis.
Males can often be the carrier of a disease without having any symptoms.

This increases the danger of casual sex.

Yu-Kym, let me know what you think!

Brian, I read that article too.
But doctors and researchers keep changing their minds about everything!

Those men who believe Yu-Kym's rubbish about being sat on your face is good for your skin might as well believe letting the girl sit on your face is also good for enlightenment and even for your brain.

I see now that Yu-Kym loves to toy with gullible stupid men.
