SC - Is it ok if I have a little crush on you right now for your gleeful analysis of the "semen hypothesis"?
I spent several hours today theoretically deconstructing the methodology in preparation for a post tonight - instead I just read your post and grinned.
PS. Having said that..in my opinion, prolactin does have effects. Both semen and orgasm change prolactin levels locally. Which is where the "have sex, go into labor" meme comes from in midwifery/obstetrical circles. How much effect, to what degree, probably vary from woman to woman...but "no harm, no foul" from my perspective. Not necessary, but fun...and possibly productive. Want an excuse to have sex?...I can hypothesize one (take it or leave it...I need no excuse).
Me: poly bi female, in an "open-but-not-looking" V-plus with -
MrS: hetero polyflexible male, live-in husband (23+ yrs)
Dude: hetero poly male, live-in boyfriend (4+ yrs) and MrS's BFF
Lotus: "it's complicated"
SLeW: platonic girlfriend + BFF
+ "others" = FBs, FWBs, lover-friends, platonic G/BFs, boytoys, etc.
