I couldn’t resist passing this other bit of science onto y’all. Check out this article on women being allergic to sex. David Resnick, allergist and immunologist was interviewed by the LiveScience site:
(S)ymptoms can include itching, burning and swelling in the genitals. In the most severe cases, hives or swelling might appear elsewhere on the body and the woman might experience difficulty breathing.
“Typically symptoms occur within 30 minutes of intercourse, but in rare cases it may be hours or even days later,” Resnick explained.
Women are not in all cases allergic to semen itself, but to chemicals in the semen from food, beverages or medications the man has had, ranging from penicillin to compounds in walnuts. However, “this is rare, even more rare than semen allergy itself,” Resnick said.
It seems a bit dodgy to blame what the man has consumed. Do you think a man would ever admit to being allergic to sex?
