Do You Swallow? The Unexpected Health Benefits Of Sperm

Here are 10 reasons why you should consider it.

Women's Health

Something that I've been told my entire life is that I don't have much of a screensaver on my face. Translation — whatever I'm thinking, it shows up on my face.


Luckily, because a lot of the marriage life coaching I do happens over the phone, this isn't an issue. I say that because whenever I hear one or both my clients say that they don't participate in oral sex, you should see my facial expression. It's a combination of "Huh?!", "You can't be serious," and "Come here, you need a hug."

Aside from the pleasure provided, there are all sorts of health benefits that oral sex provides. For instance fellas, did you know that a woman's vagina contains 100,000 to 100 million Lactobacillus cells in just one gram of her vaginal fluid? That makes it the ultimate kind of probiotic, which are needed in order to keep your gut healthy, your heart strong, and your brain working at its optimal level. (The more you know!)

I could go on and on about what a woman's womb can do for a man. But since this site is all about empowering women, let me take a few moments to share what makes sperm and semen (the fluid that carries sperm) a superpower in its own right!

Sperm is the Ultimate Multi-Vitamin

Let's begin by doing a brief rundown of what sperm contains. A tiny teaspoon's worth of sperm contains 200 different proteins, vitamins B12, C and E, zinc, calcium, citric acid, glucose, fructose, potassium, nitrogen, magnesium, estrogen, testosterone, DHEA (a steroid hormone), TRH (a mood enhancer), sodium, copper, lipids and even ammonia (which is a hint of what you probably taste in ejaculate). And that's literally only scratching the surface!

Hopefully, it goes without saying that sperm can only benefit you if it's healthy. So make sure that you and your partner get tested for STDs (rapid result home tests are available), that the relationship is mutually exclusive, and that you're mindful of whose sperm you're getting (check out "Semen Has Controlling Power over Female Genes and Behavior").

But once you get the green light, as you can see, when it comes to sperm, it really and truly is ALL good!

Mother To Mother: 6 Things I Wish I Knew Before Having A Child

Before giving birth to my child two-and-a-half years ago, I was one of those women who thought I’d have the basics of child-rearing down. After all, I was in the fourth grade when my brother was born and spent much of my adolescence helping my parents take care of him. My experience with children increased even more when I became an aunt eight times over. I regarded motherhood as something I didn’t have total knowledge of but suspected I wouldn’t be too far off the mark when the time came for me to have a child of my own. Little did I know that there was no amount of practice that could prepare me for what was ahead.

ESPN's Monica McNutt On Doing The Work & The Restorative Power Of Her 'Me Time'

In xoNecole's Finding Balance, we profile boss women making boss moves in the world and in their respective industries. We talk to them about their business, and most of all, what they do to find balance in their busy lives.

Any time we can see ourselves on TV, holding court, taking up space, and being our most beautiful authentic selves while doing so, it's always a good look. And it's more than just magic. For Monica McNutt, it's also a mix of hard work, determination, experience, and training.
