      My OH loves a healthy dose of sperm.... Sends her straight off to sleep!
    • Katy: June 09, 2013 08:43
      I know that I would love it if my man wore a kilt to make his swimmers stronger... Easy acess! I'm sure I always feel elevated when I've made him ejaculate too ;) x
    • xmorningxgloryx: June 09, 2013 09:28
      Would I consider using semen as an ingredient in the kitchen? No, never! I just can't see semen and food going together all that well.. But maybe that's just me?
    • David: June 09, 2013 10:15
      I know the thought of me wanting to use my seemen always sends my Mrs to sleep
    • Ness: June 09, 2013 10:22
      I still haven't tried a squirting sex toy, hopefully will one day.

      Love the look of the tenga toy too. They're great when you have multiple partners and they want to experience what a male masturbator is like =)

    • Alice: June 09, 2013 11:06
      Cooking with semen? Interesting....
    • Donna: June 09, 2013 11:19
      Well it never sends me to sleep. My husband on the other had is snoring by the time I've come back from the bathroom lol
    • Jamie: June 09, 2013 11:30
      A whole new meaning to 'iced buns'
    • Hooch: June 09, 2013 12:10
      Always wanted an excuse to wear a kilt
    • chris: June 09, 2013 12:23
      cooking with semen hmm, i dont mind the taste of my owm :)
    • Jack W: June 09, 2013 12:25
      Absolutely love the art on the Tenga and the design in general. Looks so fresh and exciting. Would love to try one!

      As for the research article, I cant help but think it might be slightly over thought. A more likely reason perhaps...

      Plentiful sex in a loving relationship = Happiness = Less Depression.

      Either way, it definitely can't be bad!

    • Dowdiddy: June 09, 2013 12:30
      Dont really see how it can make better concentration and make you sleepy a bit of a contridiction surely
    • Hazy: June 09, 2013 12:40
      I like to cook with fresh and natural ingredients but call me old fashioned as i'm going to continue to use meat and veg from the farmers market. (farmer not included)
    • LouiseStrachan: June 09, 2013 12:50
      The only way I get my daily dose of sperm is when my partner deposits a fresh load in my tea . I cant stand the taste of it raw and straight from the tap but love it heated up in my mug .
    • colin: June 09, 2013 12:53
      Commenting for competition (fingers crossed)
    • Toy Addict: June 09, 2013 14:31
      No no no no no, I would not be using sperm as an ingredient in my food!
    • Hnut: June 09, 2013 14:33
      I'd rather go naked than wear a kilt.
    • BigStu: June 09, 2013 15:26
      The idea of cooking with semen won't fly in my house, as my OH won't allow cim let alone swallow.
      Wearing a kilt is a great idea for sex play, the OH and I have had some amazing sex with me in a kilt, for improving the little swimmers sounds like gael tach myth to me.
    • Louise&James: June 09, 2013 15:38
      A sperm cook book? £10 says a man wrote it! Any excuse. The tenga looks fab
    • truegrace: June 09, 2013 16:12
      Can't see the semen cooking working well in our house, but fair play to anyone that tries it!
    • Darren Collins: June 09, 2013 18:08

      I'm a damn good cook, and even I would have a hard time hiding the taste of semen in my cooking...ew. No thanks, I'll pass! :P
    • rag doll: June 09, 2013 21:41
      Don't let Master hear about the heath benefits of semen or he'll be making me banana and sperm shakes!
    • Tom: June 09, 2013 22:41
      Are you sure the seaman cookbook doesn't just include plenty of recipes for Lobsters for the Submariner or Admiral who's fed up with ships biscuit?
    • Angel: June 10, 2013 04:50
      Very interesting. I had not heard of cooking with semen before and honestly I am surprise I hadn't I would have thought such a thing would have been all over the news. I have heard of some woman eating their own placenta. I love the Dr. and I am sure he patients due as well she seems very cool and easy to talk to.
    • Stevie Nichol: June 10, 2013 08:42

    • John: June 10, 2013 19:35
      I'd love to win a Tenga egg. This was an interesting article. Have to say it was the first time that I really thought about semen.
    • Pieter: June 10, 2013 20:59
      haha, can't imaging a whole book for how to cook with sperm, wonder what jamie thinks of this when he saw this book
    • Jennifer: June 11, 2013 10:01

    • redbaron: June 11, 2013 10:12

    • Kulvinder Bhogal: June 12, 2013 13:57
      Now there's a thing. I shan't let it go to waist in the future.
    • Lovehoney Nicole: June 12, 2013 16:25
      @Lou22 - me too! We had a copy floating around the office months ago but I can't remember what the recipes were...and the internet wasn't helping!

      I'd recommend reading the reviews on amazon though - they're hilarious!

    • JayJay: June 12, 2013 18:09
      I would love to surprise my partner with this as he is regularly giving me Love Honey gifts.
    • Pip: June 12, 2013 18:22
      I don't see why sperm is such a reviled thing, why not use it in cooking people use placenta and testicles...
    • horny tanya: June 13, 2013 15:12
      id love to try one of these
    • Silverdrop: June 13, 2013 17:13
      I only like semen fresh from the source, thank you.
    • mark: June 13, 2013 17:19
      I well believe that semen puts you to sleep. Any mention of it puts the wife out.
    • Kristine R.: June 13, 2013 17:26
      I dont think I will be making any recipes from that book!!
    • Karen: June 13, 2013 17:26
      Sperm in food? Could make the recipe taste different every time...depends what he's been eating lol.
    • chopster: June 13, 2013 17:52
      I will be listening intently to Hells Kitchen from now on, to see if that secret ingredient cums up in one of the taste tests!!
    • Rachel Fisher: June 13, 2013 18:31
      kilts are sexy :D as is a man in stockings!
    • Noëlle Steegs: June 13, 2013 18:36
      Cooking with semen? I'm not eager to try it or anything, but would probably be crazy enough to give it a go.
    • KinkyFuckery: June 13, 2013 21:08
      Best part of your man is tasting his sperm nice treat & clearly very good for you : P
    • DazzlingD: June 13, 2013 22:19
      I'm obviously not getting enough semen as I am having hell of a job sleeping lately ....
    • sexy little minx: June 14, 2013 13:13
      Cooking with semen...NO! I prefer mine straight up!
    • BenD: June 14, 2013 13:16
      My wife may taste my semen, but it's me who practically falls unconscious after a blowjob. Odd because she falls asleep after sex, and I'm wide awake.
    • Ben Grant: June 14, 2013 13:29
      Does the cook book include instructions on what you should eat beforehand to get different flavours? Would be interesting rolling up to the church fair for cake tasting competition :)
    • Mella: June 14, 2013 13:42
      Oh my after looking at the special edition Tenga and the diagrams I never even realised how technical it can be to get him to come! Love the design though a lot more modern and 'man friendly' ;)
    • Danny: June 14, 2013 13:52
      I'm not sure if a squirting dildo is genius or misplaced!
    • EstherHarshom: June 14, 2013 17:09
      As far as 'natural harvests' for cooking goes, surely semen has to be one of the least disturbing?
    • RG: July 09, 2013 07:14
      Sounds like a healthy thing to do between loved ones, and a little true too.
