Post-orgasmic syndrome
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.

Y'know... all this time, I thought it was a 25 year allergy attack... Big Science - Hallelujah...

But how does this affect me? I have sex only with myself--I have a close relationship--and I meet the age qualification. Since I don't have flu symptoms, that suggests that the flu shot takes care of things or that orgasms with Another are the cause. To think ownself be true....

Hmm.. for 'up to a week' after each orgasm? Isn't that the same as having a constant illness?

Well, in all seriousness, the fatigue part is not unfamiliar, perhaps, even depression.

Well, I would say that if you aren't, then maybe you could stand to put a little more effort into it.

Is anyone willing to ascertain if I have this illness? Scientific rigor is assured.

I'm not middle-aged, by the way, so it's going to be an abnormally long study.

(Not that size matters.)
