Will oral sex make you fat? Examining the calorie content of semen.

We recently heard from Chris, in Billings, MT. He writes with an unusual, but interesting question:

“My girlfriend doesn’t want to go down on me because she says there’s too many calories in semen. I want to settle this debate once and for all; are there really calories in semen?"

Some of you might be surprised to hear it, but Chris's girlfriend is actually right - to an extent. However, if her only reason for avoiding oral sex is fear of gaining weight, he may actually have the upper hand in this discussion. In the average amount of ejaculate produced, which is about 1 teaspoon, there are roughly 5 calories; not too bad considering the daily recommended calorie allowance for most adults is 2000. Furthermore, ejaculate also contains proteins, carbohydrates, fats, potassium, and vitamin C. Now, for a guy who is looking to get a little more action below the belt, I wouldn’t recommend telling a partner that she’ll get a boost of vitamin C every time she finishes him off; but if her only concern was fear of calories, then maybe things are looking pretty good for him. On the other hand, if she still seems hesitant to do the deed, this could indicate she has a more serious reason and the calorie thing was just a cover-up. So try not to push it too much. If she still seems hesitant, talk to her about it and figure out what exactly is making her uncomfortable. Good luck!
