    Thumbs up Masturbation could bring hay fever relief for men

    another priceless article.
    Life'd be so dull without those researchers.

    It makes one wonder "but how did they find out about it"
    :rolli:

    Spring is here and with it come the woes of hay fever. Never fear, however, as there may be a quick and pleasurable treatment to clear those bunged noses, for guys at least a well-timed ejaculation.(...)

    A blocked nose is caused by swollen and inflamed nasal blood vessels, irritated by an infection or pollen in the air. But during ejaculation, the sympathetic nervous system constricts blood vessels across the body. That should soothe the swollen nasal blood vessels, freeing the airway for normal breathing, according to Zarrintan.

    He hasn't yet performed clinical trials to test the hypothesis, but if it works, it could have many benefits over decongestant drugs, Zarrintan says, which have been known to contribute to hypertension. "Furthermore, if used for more than two or three days, they can actually make congestion worse," he adds.

    e suggests masturbating or having sex whenever the symptoms are bad enough to warrant another ejaculation. "It can be done [from] time-to-time to alleviate the congestion and the patient can adjust the number of intercourses or masturbations depending on the severity of the symptoms," he says.

    The theory is not without its critics, however. Mohammad Amin Abolghassemi Fakhree from Tabriz University in Iran, believes the disadvantages of ejaculation outweigh the possible benefits.

    "There are some limitations in using ejaculation or masturbation as treatment of nasal congestion, such as not being applicable out of home and not having any sex partner", he writes in a response to the proposal.

    No-one has yet argued that it makes your palms hairy.

    I wonder if it works for women too.. whether sex/orgasm similarly constricts blood vessels.

    Dunno, but it sure means our researchers' productivity don't go down when spring comes.

    Yes, I do find that rubbing my nose during hay fever provides enormous relief.
