Read on to find out if you should spit or swallow, and for the answers to the awkward questions above.
CAN BLOWJOB CAUSE SORE THROATS?
Not if you swallow, but for the reason why, you’ll have to wait to the end of the article.
Meanwhile, first of all, it all depends on where his penis/her vagina has been and what’s still on it. The resident microflora on the average penis mostly comprise gram-negative anaerobe bacteria, especially:
To repeat: they have always been around. We are constantly fighting off infections – all of the time.
These infections are so ubiquitous that you’ll really only get a sore throat from a blow job only if your immune system is badly compromised to start with.
Besides, if you’re feeling weak and ill, you shouldn’t be giving anyone oral sex to begin with. For goodness sake, get some rest, woman/man!
WILL GIVING REGULAR BLOWJOBS MAKE YOUR TEETH CROOKED?
How hard is your man’s penis and how hard are you blowing him?
According to published papers in dental journals, to extract a tooth, average rocking strengths of about 200 Nmm each way (9.81 is about 1 kg, so 200 Nmm is roughly 20.38 Kg) are required.
So unless your man is capable of exerting up to 20kg of pressure on your teeth, it’s highly unlikely that a simple blowjob can make your teeth crooked or even change one tooth’s position – unless it was going to drop off soon anyway.
IS HAVING FREQUENT ORAL SEX BAD FOR HYGIENE?
As mentioned above, many of the germs that could be transmitted via sexual contact with your partner are typically already present on your own skin and sex organs.
This means you’ve acquired immunity to these organisms, and so hygiene, as far as cleanliness and health are concerned, won’t be adversely affected, as your body’s natural defenses will keep native bad microbes in check.
The exception is if your partner has a sexually transmitted disease (STD) like chlamydia, gonorrhea, trichomoniasis, HIV, or infectious mononucleosis (also called ‘mono’) and HPV (human papillomavirus).
These diseases are by definition predatory and can cause serious illnesses, so you should use protection when you have oral sex with strangers.
Certain strains of HPV can even cause genital warts in the mouth and cervical cancer, but thankfully there are now HPV vaccines available which protect vulnerable women (and the men they blow) from developing HPV-related tumours.
DO REGULAR BLOWJOBS MAKE YOU ITCHY "DOWN THERE"?
That depends on whether you are giving or getting oral sex. Many women have a natural microflora balance in their vaginas, and if this balance is upset in any way, one or more of the species that live there can take over temporarily and cause itchiness. This manifests most often as a yeast infection caused by a yeast species called Candida albicans.
If you are the one giving oral sex, on the other hand, the only itchiness you’re likely to feel is the desire to have sex. That’s definitely one way to define “itch”, isn’t it?
ONE LAST NOTE, IF YOU’RE GIVING A BLOWJOB AND YOU ARE WORRIED ABOUT GETTING A SORE THROAT, SWALLOW. REALLY.
Swallowing brings any organisms present in your mouth into your stomach, where they are neutralized first by stomach acid and then by your body’s single greatest defense mechanism: your gut microflora.
Plus, it makes your partner feel great, so it’s a win-win for the both of you!
