• Ha! Well played, The Body Odd on MSNBC, well played, but a horrible story. Mr. A, a 50-year-old married man, “would experience fever, weakness, exhaustion, loss of initiative, headache, disordered speech, irritability, forgetfulness and frightening dreams, not to mention swollen lips and throat” after every time he ejaculated. First diagnosed as a condition in 2002, Mr. A had what experts call Post Orgasmic Illness Syndrome, or POIS. The issue? Some men are allergic to their own semen. To treat the condition, men are inoculated over a series of injections which contain an increasingly less diluted solution of their own semen. Run with that one any way you want. [MSNBC]
