receptive oral

Mar 14, 2004

Hi Calvin

is giving blow jobs dangerous? i read that deepthroating and or swallowing semen or getting semen on the back of the throat (tonsils) has and will continue to be a mode of HIV transmission among women and gay men. how true is this? i really enjoy the taste of semen, and i need to know if this is a dangerous addiction.

thank you, and welcome to the site!!

Response from Mr. Spinks

Hello reader,

Thank you so much for the support and encouragement. Yes, your addiction to semen can be harmful to your health. When a person is exposed to pre-cum, semen, vaginal secretions, breast milk and blood from an infected person the risk of HIV transmission may occur. As far as risk goes, oral sex is lower risk for HIV, but higher risk for other STDs, such as Herpes.

It's up to you to decide what risk you're willing to take! I would encourage you to avoid swallowing or holding semen in your mouth. Also, brushing your teeth or irritating your gums right before performing oral sex isn't recommended. Take care and be safe!!

Life is on hold - please answer
HIV risk with orgy
