POOR MAN WAS ALLERGIC TO HIS OWN ORGASMS, COULD HAVE NO SEX LIFE AT ALL
I really, really hate allergy season. Mostly, that’s because every season now feels like allergy season. And let’s face it, the pandemic, never mind the collective pandemic brain, hasn’t made that any better. And I’ve got one unusual food allergy as well, which sometimes makes even grabbing a piece of pizza treacherous. People can be allergic to almost anything! But I have never, ever, heard of anyone being allergic to orgasms. Orgasms! And ladies, don’t worry. This is a malady that only affects men. Sorry, gents! I feel your pain. Never quote me on that. But fortunately, there can be a happy ending to this lonesome glove affliction. Everyone needs a sex life!
CAN THERE BE A HAPPY ENDING FOR POSTORGASMIC ILLNESS SYNDROME? CAN THERE?
A recent study talked about one man’s problem with his allergy to orgasms. The allergy is a condition with the name, postorgasmic illness syndrome (POIS). If you have POIS, it means that every time you have an orgasm, you then suffer hay fever or a case of the flu. How’s that for romance, even with a magazine? You suffer the symptoms after nearly every orgasm you have, either within seconds or a few hours. And the symptoms can last for 2-7 days! It’s enough to make entering the priesthood make absolute sense. Temptation is nothing to sneeze at, after all.
BEING ALLERGIC TO ORGASMS IS VERY RARE, BUT HAPPY ENDINGS COULD SOON BE AT HAND
But being allergic to orgasms is very, very rare. Maybe 1,000 men in the United States have it, with only 60 currently reported. But the recent study did find a possible happy ending (multiple, please) for the man it focused on. Not being able to pursue sexual or romantic relationships, he sought help for his affliction. It started when he was 18 years old, and was 27 when he finally got help looking for a happy ending. He had no luck over the years getting help from allergists, infectious disease specialists, even an otolaryngologist. It seems that the man was allergic to his own semen! Which is, of course, an inevitable result of a man having an orgasm.
After several attempts at treatment with various antihistamines, the doctors found one that worked: fexofenadine, which you may know of as Allegra. The man was eventually able to have more orgasms with no allergic symptoms, with a 90% success rate. Sex, even romance, are not possible again for this poor man! I bet he marries a woman with the name Allegra. Just because.
