Is oral sex more safe than a usual penetration? Or should you also worry about your health as during classic sex?
Experts of family and sex education center “Secrets” answer these questions.
Sexually transmitted diseases are: chlamydia, syphilis, trichomoniasis, gonorrhea, genital herpes, HIV and hepatitis B.
Some of them can be cured and some stay in organism forever appearing when immunity falls and some of them need every day therapy for making risks low. Each this infection is dangerous and demands special treatment, money and time.
Despite the fact that during oral sex usual contact of genitals doesn’t happen, still you can get a bunch of diseases. In fact, you can catch all the same diseases as during usual sex. But the risks are much lower.
For example, herpes is easily transmitted through oral sex and if a partner has gonorrhea a woman can get throat infection.
HIV is also transmitted through blowjob: the virus cells can be found in sperm, vaginal secrete and is transmitted through mucous membrane (mouth is all mucous membrane) and microtraumas of skin, about which a person even doesn’t know.
Oral sex types are: blowjob, cunnilingus and analingus and each of them demands measures of contraception, if you are not sure in your or your partner’s health. The only thing that can help here is a condom. During cunnilingus it can be used as latex napkin, having sliced it along and cut off the tip.
Summarising all that was said above, every way of having sex is not safe, so it doesn’t matter which one you prefer.
We also want to mention that if your partner doesn’t want to use a condom and you are not sure in his health for 100%, it’s better to refuse sex. Every person should be examined for sexual diseases once a year if he has a constant partner and twice a year if he has different partners.
