While punchin’ the munchkin can help you clear out some of that unwanted baby batter from the old tickle pipes, new research indicates that it may help to clear out your sinuses as well.

Researchers from the Tabriz Medical University in Iran say that the nose and genitals are both connected to the sympathetic nervous system, which controls things like the heart rate, sweat gland secretion and ejaculation.

Lead researcher and neurologist Sina Zarritan says that there is evidence that suggests that when there are irritants causing the nasal blood vessels to become swollen and inflamed, ejaculation, through either masturbation or sex, can provide some relief to the airway and help men breath easier. We don't know about breathing easier, but it sure helps to keep our mind off of it.

Zarritan recommends wrestling the bald-headed champ whenever sex is not available to help relieve severe symptoms brought on by hay fever. "It can be done (from) time-to-time to alleviate the congestion and the patient can adjust the number of intercourses or masturbations depending on the severity of the symptoms," he said. Too bad we don't know any naughty nurses will to give us a hand, or mouth, with that.

However, we do have some bad news. It doesn’t appear that blowing your nose will help to cure blue balls. Looks like you'll have to get rid of it the old fashion way.
