|Wife is allergic to her husband's sperm
||[May. 23rd, 2010|05:50 pm]
Julie Boyde, 26, discovered the problem when she and husband Mike, 27, had unprotected sexual intercourse for the first time on their wedding night. |
The couple had been dating for two years when they got married, but had always used protection. As soon as they had unprotected intercourse for the first time she knew something was wrong.
"Before we were always very careful and, you know, used protection, and that time we didn't," Mrs Boyde told ABC News. "So, we figured we were married now, so if we got pregnant, we got pregnant."
Mrs Boyde, from Ambridge, Pennsylvania, added: "The pain that I was feeling was inside, kind of like, somebody was sticking needles up inside of me and like a burning, like really painful burning."
Doctors were unable to explain why she experienced pain after intercourse, until a friend of hers suggested she might be allergic to her husband's semen. She was eventually diagnoses with Seminal Plasma Hypersensitivity, which can cause itching and burning.
Dr Andrew Goldstein, from the University of Cincinnati Medical Center said: "The body recognizes semen as a foreign protein just as it would recognize a peanut allergen or pollen." "So you have swelling, you have itching, you have inflammation of the nerve endings."
His colleague Jonathan Bernstein developed a desensitization treatment similar to receiving an allergy shot. After determining the proteins in Mr Boyde's semen that triggered his wife's reaction, he created a serum to counteract the problem. Although the treatment works for some couples, it did not for the Boydes. They have now started adoption proceedings.

|Attacker throws animal semen on school girls
||[Feb. 4th, 2010|08:17 am]
A man who throws animal semen on schoolgirls is being hunted by police following a sixth attack.|
Detectives in Greater Manchester, described the assaults, all in the Bury area, as "disgusting".
The man follows young girls before they discover they have been smeared with the liquid.
Police have released a CCTV image of a man they want to speak to. The first attack was reported in November and the latest was last week.
Det Insp Lynne Vernon, from Greater Manchester Police, said: "We have six separate incidents and do not know the motivation behind them - while we do not want people to be frightened unnecessarily, we are taking these reports seriously.
"None of the victims was physically harmed in anyway but this is still a disgusting act and the person responsible must be caught.
"I'd ask people to take a good look at this image and if you know anything about this man, please contact us.
"He is not necessarily connected to all of the incidents but we would like to speak to him as part of our inquiries."
The first victim, a 14-year-old girl, was followed by a man on Kennedy Drive in Unsworth, on 13 November.
He asked her the time and was standing uncomfortably close to her.
When she got home, she noticed a sticky liquid on her tights.
The substance was analysed by police and later identified as animal semen.
A 15-year-old girl was smeared with liquid by a man on 7 December on Ostrich Lane, Prestwich.
Later that day another 15-year-old was followed.
On 17 December a 14-year-old girl was in a shop on Mill Gate in Bury town centre with her mother when a man bumped into her and wiped a white substance on her bottom.
The next day, a man followed two 13-year-old girls on Bury Old Road, near to the M60 in Prestwich.
In the latest attack, on 25 January, a man approached two girls, aged 15 and 16, on Pinfold Lane, Whitefield, and asked them the time.
One of the girls then noticed liquid dripping from her skirt.
In each incident, the offender was described as being a white man, aged between 25 and 35 and was carrying a bag.

Two years' jail for free-sex policeman
Former policeman Nathan Thorose Connolly’s free-sex with a prostitute he threatened has cost his reputation, his marriage, his career, and now it has drawn a two-year jail term.
He has been publicly vilified and humiliated, and as an ex-cop in jail he can expect to spend most of his jail term in solitary confinement, in lock-down for 23 hours a day.
The High Court in Christchurch was told today that the sexual offence had ruined him financially and damaged his relationship with his two young children.
Justice Christine French also said it had damaged the police.
She told him: “The fact that you committed this offence as a police officer is an aggravating feature because of the harm done to the police and the resulting loss of public confidence.
“That is something that strikes at the very heart of our legal system. It is imperative that we have faith in the integrity of our police officers who are entrusted by the community with the task of enforcing the law.”
Connolly, 31 and now unemployed, was convicted at a jury trial on one charge of inducing sexual connection from the sex worker by means of a threat. He was acquitted on two other charges.
The trial was told the pair had regular sexual liaisons, but things changed after she happened to visit the police station and saw that Connolly was a policeman.
He stopped her car and told her he could issue tickets totalling $1000 for not having a warrant or registration, and could have the car impounded. The tickets weren’t issued, but the two later had sex. No payment of the $60 fee was mentioned.
Crown prosecutor Mark Zarifeh said: “The complainant’s evidence was that she had sex even when he did not pay her because she was scared of the consequences if she did not do so.”
Justice French referred to the vulnerability of the victim. “She had no-one she could turn to.”
Defence counsel Jonathan Eaton said Connolly had been convicted of a single act at a time when he had made no overt threat.
“It was not a case where he became demanding or insistent,” said Mr Eaton. “The sex they engaged in was ‘normal’ sex — there was nothing aggressive, demanding, or demeaning about it.”
The only difference between then and their other acts of intercourse was that Connolly was on duty, in a police car, and the issue of money was not discussed at all.
He said Connolly had a lot of support. He had lost his marriage but his wife remained supportive in what had become impossible circumstances for her.
Connolly accepted and expressed sympathy and understanding of the position the victim felt she was in.
Justice French imposed a two-year jail term but ruled out home detention. She said: “Home detention would be an inappropriate response to the seriousness of this offending involving a police officer abusing his power for his own personal benefit.”
Outside the court, Anna Reed of the Prostitutes’ Collective, said the victim was very relieved that the case was over because she had been under a lot of stress.
“What he did was very wrong,” said Miss Reed. “Just because he is a policeman doesn’t make it right.”

Cannibals nabbed selling corpse to kebab house
Mon Nov 16, 2009
MOSCOW (Reuters) - Russian police have arrested three homeless people suspected of eating a 25-year-old man they had butchered and selling other bits of the corpse to a local kebab house.
Suspicions were raised when dismembered parts of a human body were found near a bus stop in the outskirts of the Russian city of Perm, 1,150 km (720 miles) east of Moscow.
Three homeless men with previous criminal records have been arrested on suspicion of setting upon a foe with knives and a hammer before chopping up his corpse to eat, local investigators said in a statement on their www.susk.perm.ru Web site.
"After carrying out the crime, the corpse was divided up: part was eaten and part was also sold to a kiosk selling kebabs and pies," the Prosecutor-General's main investigative unit for the Perm region said in a statement issued Friday.
It was not immediately clear from the statement if any of the corpse had been sold to customers.

It's been awhile since we had a good cannibal story... and now we have two!|
"News of a cannibal named Zim Zim, 'half-human, half-ani-mal thing', circulated in schools, shops and businesses following reports of a 'black magic cannibal'..."

Moshi police arrest 'Cannibal'
7 Hours Ago
Police in Moshi are holding a middle aged suspect over allegations of murdering a relative and eating part of the deceased organs in a bizarre incident on Sunday.
The Kilimanjaro police boss, Lucas Nghoboko, confirmed the incident yesterday and said the suspect was under police surveillance at the Kilimanjaro Christian Medical Centre (KCMC) referral hospital where he is admitted.
According to Nghoboko, the suspect who is believed to be aged 35-40 years was rescued from irate members of the public who wanted to lynch him following the murder at Kibosho-Kindi village in Moshi rural. The killing took place at about 10 am Sunday.
He said the suspect killed his clan member using an axe for reasons that are not known. He then proceeded to open his guts and chopped off intestines and the penis and ate pieces of flesh from the organs.
Shocked members of the public who arrived at the scene as the suspect ate the meat descended on him with the intention of killing him but quick intervention by the police saved him from their wrath.
"We were shocked to see him eat the intestines and the other piece of flesh from the penis. Other people who could not understand the bizarre occurrence ran away but some descended on him with all manner of missiles," one villager who did not want his name mentioned told reporters who also rushed to the scene.
Others claimed the suspect once killed a dog and also ate its flesh.
Police said the deceased was ambushed outside the suspect house as he proceeded to his own house not far from the scene. He died on the spot due to serious injuries inflicted by the suspect.
The deceased's body is at KCMC mortuary.
Zim Zim cannibal 'just a rumour'
October 24 2009
Residents of Phoenix and Mt Moriah, north of Durban, have been terrified about rumours of a cannibal on the loose in the area.
However, Durban police spokesman Superintendant Muzi Mngomezulu said they had investigated the claims and had found no proof.
"There is no clarity. It appears these are rumours or superstitions of some sort because there are no people reported to be lost," he said.
He said the police would not disregard the matter, but would have to treat it with suspicion until someone came forward with new information that could give them some positive leads.
Another police spokesman, Captain Khephu Ndlovu, said there had been a story circulating in communities in the area about a cannibal named Zim Zim.
'Cannibals' rumour sparks fear in Durbs
Oct 24, 2009
Hundreds of concerned Phoenix, Verulam and Inanda residents were conned this week by a hoax e-mail and reports of a "black magic cannibal".
News of a "half-human, half-ani-mal thing" circulated in schools, shops and businesses after hundreds of people descended on the Amaoti police station in Inanda last Sunday to enquire about two alleged cannibals.
SAPS spokesman Vincent Mdunge said concerned community members stormed the police station. He was not sure where they had heard that police had arrested cannibals.
Among the variations of the urban legend is that a truck containing the cannibals was hijacked and they "ate the driver, a few children, including one from Brookdale".
The e-mail also contained a photograph of the supposed cannibals preparing to eat a victim.
A local security company spokesman, Prem Balram, said the company had been "inundated with calls from residents who were afraid of being eaten".
"We've received an average of 30 calls a day. We have also been fielding about 30 e-mail queries a day since Sunday regarding the cannibals. Our callouts have increased drastically owing directly to the story in circulation."
Balram said he believed that the rumours had been fuelled by the discovery of four bodies in the north Durban area over the past two months.
One of the four was found in Dawncrest, Phoenix, in August with no internal organs. Another mutilated body was found soon afterwards in the same vicinity.
A third badly burned body was found last Wednesday near the new La Mercy airport, and the fourth body was found in a swampy area in Verulam.
In China, four men were arrested by police in August for circulating a bizarre hoax e-mail claiming that cannibals were responsible for the disappearance of 10 people.
According to international media reports, the bloggers faked photos showing the cannibals preparing to eat a human body. It is believed the same picture was used in the local e-mail.
