Sex is known to put you in a better mood, but semen trumps that. Evolutionary psychologists at the State University of New York conducted a survey on 293 women and discovered that vaginal exposure to semen made woman less likely to be depressed.

3. Cures Insomnia

4. Prevents tooth decay

Containing vitamins like zinc and calcium, semen can help prevent tooth decay. But this doesn’t mean you should opt out of using toothpaste.
