Dutch Doctor Identifies Post-Orgasmic Syndrome
Apr 12 2002 1:42PM

AMSTERDAM (Reuters) - Tired and sweaty after sex? A Dutch doctor said on Friday he is studying a rare new syndrome among middle-aged men who complain of flu-like symptoms for up to a week after having an orgasm.
Marcel Waldinger, head of the department of psychiatry and neurosexology at Leyenburg Hospital in the Hague, said he planned to publish a report on "post-orgasmic illness syndrome" in the U.S. Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy this month.

Waldinger has seen five Dutch men in as many years in his surgery complaining of a range of flu-like symptoms, including a sore throat, sweating, extreme fatigue and eye irritation after sex.

"Men developed influenza-like symptoms within minutes of having an orgasm. It is like having a serious flu. This happens as soon as they have an orgasm," said Waldinger.

"It is a new syndrome or a syndrome which is old but has not been looked at properly."

The syndrome could be a physical disorder caused by an allergic reaction or the immune system in direct response to the release of chemicals in the body after sex. The symptoms lasted between three and seven days, he said.

"We know that during orgasm and ejaculation very specific compounds like hormones are released into the nervous system. One hypothesis is that they might have had an allergic reaction to one of those compounds," Waldinger said.

Whenever I find myself with flu-like symptoms, I always find they can be alleviated simply by rolling over, [email protected], having a fag and snoring in an annoyingly loud and satisfied manner. Always wake up feeling bright and breezy.:cool: :cool: :cool:

Maybe the Dutchies should take a leaf out of my book.:D

Quite simple really!

Men have to stop climbing the highest mountains and swimming the widest rivers, for the one they love ....... or,

.... when sneaking out to the neighbours place at night, at least, wait until the rain has stopped. :p

All those symptoms are the kind of allergic response some people get when they are near furry animals - which begs the question, "To whom had these Dutch gentlemen most recently made love?";)

These cold/flu symptoms. The last time I had a dose of the flu was about 3 years ago, and I am married.

Now what do you think that says?

Hey Breezy- your remark about eating cheese before bedtime reminds me of the topic MS had us all going for re English hygiene and oral sex. YUM YUM!

:D :D :p

Hey Breezy!

Off course they do, stupid as they are. This is kid-stuff or common knowledge for the Vikings; Just close the window or pull the blanket around your behind.

Ahh, so you want to see what you`re doing. Then, buy yourself a water-bed. They all come with a heating element. 33C in the middle of January should take care of it, and you can drop it to around 30 after Easter.
