STI Autofellatio
Sep 29, 2011

Hello there, I can perform autofellatio and I was just curious to know, could you contract throat/oral cancer from that ? Also, I havent had sex yet, but could there still be the chance that i've picked up a STI/STD from somewhere like a public bathroom or something ? Thanks.

Response from Dr. McGowan

Congratulations! No you cannot pick up an STD from yourself, this is the ultimate in safe sex practices. There would also be no risk for throat or oral cancer. Toilet seats are notorious, but not responsible for STDs. When you are ready to share with a loved one, make sure that you take steps to protect yourself by using a condom (or have your partner use a condom, whoever is doing the insertion).

Best, Joe
