Hidden Dangers Of “Blow Job”

Oral s3x on a male is when one person uses their lips, mouth and tongue on and around the penis and scrotum. It is most commonly referred to in the slang terms ‘blow job’ or ‘giving head’. Oral s3x is now widely practiced, in both heterosexual and homos3xual relationships. For many years, it was regarded as an almost ‘unmentionable’ activity. But these days, research suggests that most s3xually active people go in for it sometimes.

Every form of unprotected s3xual contact can pose a risk of STI. Deciding whether or not to have oral s3x is a personal choice. Some people like it; others do not. But before you give that blow job you should consider your values, where you are in your relationship, how you feel about giving/receiving oral s3x and the risks involve in “giving head”

Why exactly is it risky?

In case of ejaculation in the mouth:

The sperm of a man who is infected with an STI, contains a large quantity of germs.
When an infected man ejaculates in your mouth, you can easily become infected yourself with for example hepatitis B, gonnorhoea, chlamydia and hiv.
If you swallow the sperm, this risk becomes even bigger, as the mucous membrane of the throat is very thin and germs can easily penetrate it.

In case of a blowjob without ejaculation in the mouth:

The pre-sperm contains less germs than sperm, and consequently there is less risk of contagion.
Nevertheless there is still a risk of infection with an STI, for example when you have wounds, an inflammation of the throat or the gums, aphta or vesicles in the mouth.
These are all entries by which germs can easily penetrate the body.
Some germs are more contagious than others.
The possibility of a chlamydia infection in the throat is relatively high, even without ejaculation in the mouth, only because this is a very strong germ.
The Aids-virus is relatively weak; when there is no ejaculation in the mouth, the risk of hiv contagion becomes very small on condition that you have a healthy mouth.

Gonorrhoea: Gonorrhoea, a common STD, can be transmitted to the throat during oral s3x, especially fellatio. Because of this fact, most clinics often take ‘throat swabs’ these days. In the throat, the germ can cause inflammation, formation of pus and sometimes soreness. But often, it causes no symptoms at all, and the person just ‘carries’ it.

Chlamydia: Chlamydia trachomatis is a little genital bug that has become almost epidemic among sexually active young people. It is sometimes found in swabs taken from the throat, and it is thought that it can be transmitted by oral s3x, particularly fellatio. Please note that if chlamydia gets established in the throat, mouth or nose, it could cause various infections, particularly of the eye.
