Study Shows That Oral Copulation May Cure Morning Sickness In Pregnant Women
One academic is proposing a cure for morning sickness that some moms-to-be might find in bad taste — sperm.
Gordon Gallup, a psychologist at SUNY-Albany has a theory that pregnant women who are continually exposed to the father’s semen are less like to suffer from AM nausea.
Gallup, who specializes in human reproductive competition and behavior, offers the theory that expectant women become ill and vomit because their bodies are rejecting the semen’s genetic material as something foreign and unfamiliar.
The theory could feasibly quell their queasiness by ingesting the same sperm in order to allow the body to build up a tolerance.
The idea, while likely appealing to dads, is only a theory and has yet to be tested.
The concept, presented at the 2012 Northeastern Evolutionary Psychology Society, also proposed that morning sickness would actually ebb in subsequent pregnancies — if the second child was of the same paternity as the first.
This isn’t the first time that Gallup has theorized that “man juice” will make you happier.
Gallup has long been making headlines as a proponent of the healing nature of sperm.
In 2002, he made waves when he concluded that exposure to semen offered anti-depressant qualities.
Soooo ladies, has this doctor convinced you to do more slurping and burping while you’re pregnant??
