my boyfriend says that swallowing his sperm is good for me and that if any drips on my face I should rub it in as it is good for the complexion. is he lying? is it bad for me? should I stop swallowing?

Response from Mr. Kull

Sounds like a lot of old wives' tales. In terms of HIV and other STDs, I do not recommend getting semen in your mouth if you are unsure of your partner's sexual health. I do not have any information about the effects of rubbing semen on your face.
