“Is swallowing semen safe?”
“My boyfriend keeps saying yes, but he isn’t the one doing it!”
Firstly, there are a lot of questions that are asked when it comes to oral sex; such as diseases and sicknesses. We will try our best to answer all of the major concerns.
The Natural Answer:
As you most likely already know, Semen is an all-natural bodily fluid that doesn’t harbor any diseases or harmful bacteria within a HEALTHY human being. Semen’s main purpose is to provide sperm with a high protein and nutrient rich medium to sustain their journey to the female ovaries. Sperm, in general, does not present a threat to the digestive tract since they are neutralized by gastric fluids before they even reach the stomach!
Swallowing the semen of a healthy male may in fact be good for you! This is due to the semen’s highly concentrated source of minerals, protein, natural sugars, and other nutrients. It does not contain any harmful chemicals. The “bleachy” smell of semen is due to traces of chlorine and its alkaline pH. Seriously, think about it… If it’s safe to enter the vagina, it should be alright to enter the harsher environments of your mouth and throat!
The “Eeehhhh” Answer:
Swallowing semen from a partner that has an STD means that you’ll become exposed to whatever they’re carrying. We all know that having unprotected oral sex is risky.
Diseases that can be spread via oral sex include:
- Genital Warts
As of now, the risk of HIV transmission through oral sex is still undetermined. However, through extensive research we’ve found that some experts say there is little to no risk of getting HIV through fellatio while others say there is a possible risk. There have been cases of men contracting HIV via oral sex. It all depends whether or not there are cuts or sores in the mouth of the person performing the oral sex – Do us all a favor and add some flavor!
Hypothetically speaking, if you’ve already performed oral sex, swallowing the semen isn’t going to put you at much additional risk. If anything you should swallow as it’s the fastest way to get rid of it. By doing so, your digestive enzymes and acids will most likely destroy any germs contained within the semen. We then suggest to rinse your mouth thoroughly with a 3% hydrogen peroxide solution. This will further kill any additional germs in your mouth and throat.
Swallowing Makes Me Throw Up!
“Is true that some people get nauseated or even vomit during or after performing fellatio?”
Yes. This is mainly due to the individuals gag reflex being triggered. Keep in mind that one’s gag reflex is the process by which the body protects itself from choking. If its constantly stimulated, the person will in-fact start involuntary vomiting. However, keep in mind that the gag reflex can be controlled through PRACTICE!
Can I get pregnant?
Are you serious? NO, YOU CANNOT GET PREGNANT. Semen goes down into your stomach where they are digested with all your other food. There is no passage connecting your stomach to your vagina.
