Oral Sex: It Shouldn't Leave A Bad Taste In Your Mouth

There are loads, loooads, of toe curling reasons why oral sex is arguably the only thing better than sex. In fact, this pleasurable pastime was considered so sinfully good that it was illegal in all 50 states until the 1950s.

Thanks to the sexual revolution in the '60s, '70s and '80s, consenting adults are now able to tell that law to suck it.

Since then, we've come a long way as a country. According to the National Health Statistics Reports, over 85 percent of sexually active men and women say they've had oral sex at least once in their life.

If you and your significant other need any more reason to engage in some mouth action (other than just practicing your God-give, legal right) science - yeah, science - has your back.

With an abundance of delightfully delicious health benefits, you and your partner will be hard-pressed to find reasons not to be down with going down.

Mood Booster: Here cums the sun

No need for a happy pill, just take it in liquid form! Semen contains mood-altering hormones that are scientifically proven to make women happier. The mood boosting compounds found in semen are oxytocin, serotonin and endorphins.

Liz Powell, a licensed psychologist and LGBTQ-friendly sex educator, says oral sex can increase "happiness, connection and a sense of efficacy around sex."

"[Oral sex] helps both parties sink more fully into the roles of giving or receiving pleasure and can therefore lead to greater enjoyment for both roles," Powell explains. "The more you are enjoying oral, the more you will release endorphins."

Vitamins: Your juicy dose of healthy

Not only does head provide psychological benefits, but it also offers physical benefits. Next time you're doing the deed; you might consider swallowing.

Semen contains a healthy cocktail of vitamins, including vitamin C, choline and B12. As for minerals, you'll get a dose of calcium, magnesium, potassium, phosphorous, sodium and zinc.

Some have even argued semen is good for your teeth because the low does of zinc and calcium may help prevent tooth decay.

Facial: Your new favorite - ahem - face cream?

Alright, this sounds like an overused fraternity joke, but is semen actually good for your skin? Yeppp. *Cue boyfriend throwing out your La Mer.*

Just call it the fountain of youth. Spermine (which is found in semen) rebuilds the fat and moisture balance in the skin, repairs the skin barrier, stimulates collagen production and cell renewal. Pregnancy Hacks: A morning sickness remedy and preeclampsia cure?

Dads-to-be can start bringing a lot more to the table than just food deliveries and swollen foot rubs. According to Gordon Gallup, a psychologist at SUNY-Albany, ingesting sperm may be the best remedy for morning sickness.

That's not the only solution your man can offer. According to an abstract from the National Center for Biotechnology Information, "oral sex and swallowing sperm is correlated with a diminished occurrence of preeclampsia."

So the next time you're at a baby shower, remember these talking points... consider it a gift for the whole family.
