    I don't even know what that means. I think I'm still partially asleep.

    Translation: The Chinese are looking for the location of genes that would indicate how much spunk a certain type of cross-breed of pig would produce and the quality of his sperm for fertilization. It's evidently the first time genotype and phenotype matching has been done specifically in the area of spunk research for pigs.

    I've been called a pig in the past but that was more to do with the receiving end not the giving end.

    Pig semen... A thread about Chinese pigs and how much they cum... You realize these scientists make their living prostate-milking pigs...? Sorry. I forgot about coffee this morning and I need it to screen out thoughts like that. "Animal Husbandry in China." "Gear of the Pig." I am so getting that cuppa joe... Unless he's a Chinese pig. Oh God, just made myself retch a little.

    LOL, you know what's worse? I know someone whose job in college was ejaculating mice by sticking an electrode up their rectums. That's all she did, ejaculate mice. It was for research of course, not for any kinky reasons. :tongue:

    [FONT=Verdana,Geneva, Arial, sans-serif]While I was researching the potential side effects of a vasectomy, I did some reading on the components that make up a man's seminal fluid and was directed to a peer-reviewed study with this title: "Does semen have antidepressant properties?"

    Quote(s) from the discussion:

    "Females who had sex without condoms, and therefore would be more likely to have semen in their reproductive tract, evidenced significantly fewer depressive symptoms than those who used condoms."

    Further, "consistent with the hypothesis that there may be something about semen that antagonzies depression, females who were having sex without condoms also showed lower depression scores than those who were abstaining from sex altogether. The fact that depression scores among females who were not having sex did not differ from those who were using condoms demonstrates that it is not sexual activity per se that antagonizes depression."

    Also, the authors comment that there were no differences between the depression scores of females using oral contraceptives and those that were not--either between or within categories--suggesting that oral contraceptives have little influence on depression.

    Of course, females that never use condoms could just have fewer depressive symptoms simply because they were having sex more or because they were in a committed relationship.

    However, the lead author has replicated these findings with an additional 700 women and has plans to study whether or not "semen withdrawl" places women at an "increased risk for depression when they are premenstrual, menopausal, or have just given birth, as many women abstain from sex during these periods."

    Talk about semen research!

    Wow, Petite! That was cool to see your explanation. I was wondering what percentage of the crowd here would get what the web page reference was about. Clearly you are in some medical/science/technical field. I am always amazed at how little science and sex overlap in regular conversation. That's why I try to relate them as much as possible! :)

    I haven't gotten dehydrated from ejaculating recently... there was the one time I took the 5 Cialis tabs at once. I got really thirsty after the first 10 times in an hour. LOL!

    2/3 cup is a hefty load for any man! I might get 1/8th cup, if I _REALLY_ saved up. :)

    5 Cialis? Were you self-prescribing? I guess that's one of the perks of being a Doctor.
