Plenty of semen helps prevent miscarriages.
« on: 07/01/2005 16:38:34 »
The proteins in semen from the father helps the mother's immune system accept his proteins and later the baby's after prolonged exposure to those proteins. Perhaps it's an idea for those fathers to be to not use condoms. So her body will become accustomed to the new foreign protein. It is a marvel that the female body does not attack it's feotus as it is a foreign protein to her own, and no immune response is marvelous.

Semen also helps reduce menstrual cramps.  As long as the blood doesn't make you queasy, you should be screwing a chick who's on the rag every day.

This was originally posted on another thread relating to this topic and, I think, addresses the points you raise :

Here is another source for the story you are referring to:

Ananova:
Oral sex makes pregnancies safer and more successful - study

New research suggests oral sex may not only help a woman conceive but may make her pregnancy safer and more successful.

The Australian study found that semen contains a growth factor which helps persuade a mother's immune system to accept sperm.

It claims to have found evidence that regular exposure before pregnancy, especially by mouth, helps her immune system get used to her partner's sperm.

Disorders during pregnancy often stem from the battle between the immune system and the foetus as a 'foreign body'.

Many of its 'foreign' proteins come courtesy of the father's genes so if the mother is regularly exposed to them her body is more likely to accept them.

Professor Gustaaf Dekker, from the University of Adelaide, said: "If there's repeated exposure to that signal then eventually when the woman conceives, her cells will say, 'we know that guy, he's been around a long time, we'll allow the pregnancy to continue."

New Scientist reports that Professor Dekker compared 41 pregnant women with pre-eclampsia, a condition where the mother's blood pressure soars during pregnancy, and 44 without.

He found 82% of those without the condition practised fellatio - only 44% of those with it did.

He says the protective effect was strongest if the woman swallowed the semen.

Now, when advising couples who have difficulty carrying pregnancies to full term, he says: "I tell them, 'semen exposure's good, and you could think of oral sex'."

I think the study group is too small to accurately draw conclusions like that...but then I'm not a man. [:p]

Neilep, you seem to be touring the world.

Can you really respect your wife and give her oral sex? What would her mum and dad say?

As long as it's consensual and mutually pleasurable, how is it disrespectful?  Not everyone's a puritan...

Hopefully Mum and Dad aren't in the bedroom (or wherever) to gain that knowledge, and it's not exactly table talk.

Didn't mean to tell you off, just questioning things. I am not married... I am not at all offended.
