throat cancer risk with autofellatio

May 31, 2013

so I know that you cannot give yourself mouth cancer or anything of that nature by performing autofellatio without a disease, but what if you have a disease or an infection already? can performing autofellatio give you oral cancer or anything of the sort? im not a chicken or anything, im just not really in the mood for throat or mouth cancer.

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there,

Unless you are performing oral sex on a cigarette or cigar I think you are good to go. To my knowledge, oral sex does not increase your risk of throat of mouth cancer.

If it did, there would be a lot more people with throat and mouth cancer.

In health,


worried about hiv and delayed seroconversion
