Masturbation Brings a Relief to Men Suffering from Hay Fever


Along with the wonderful days of spring, a lot of people might suffer a hay fever that comes with it. However, recently scientists found one pleasurable solution (at least for men) that can clear a bunged-up nose, and that is a well-timed ejaculation.

The solution was proposed by Sina Zarrintan, who works as a neurologist at the Tabriz Medical University in Iran. He explained that the nose and genitals are linked to the sympathetic nervous system that stands behind particular reflexes.

The main cause of a blocked nose is swollen and inflamed nasal blood vessels, which might be irritated either by an infection or pollen in the air. However, the researcher says that during ejaculation, the blood vessels are compressed across the body by the sympathetic nervous system. Thus, an ejaculation can calm the swollen nasal blood vessels, normalizing the breathing.

No clinical trials to test the theory of Zarrintan have been carried out yet. In case the hypothesis turns out to be true in trials, it might bring a lot of advantages over decongestant drugs, which are known to lead to hypertension. "Furthermore, if used for more than two or three days, they can actually make congestion worse," he adds.

The researcher recommends masturbating or having sex each time the symptoms are bad. Adding that: "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."
