Can o*al Sex Pass On Sexually Transmitted Diseases?

Can o*al Sex Pass On Sexually Transmitted Diseases

While a condom will protect people from contracting most sexually transmitted disease from their partner during full penetration sex, it is much less common to use a condom during oral sex. Despite the raised awareness campaigns on television and in the press about the dangers of sexually transmitted diseases, many people are still under the illusion that while they should always use a condom to protect themselves during full sex, unprotected oral sex is much safer. Nothing could be further than the truth. Many sexually transmitted diseases can just as easily be contracted through oral sex as with full penetration sex. In order to emphasise the importance of being aware of this issue, this article deals with some of the more dangerous sexually transmitted diseases that can be contracted this way.

The current most rampant sexually transmitted disease especially amongst the younger generations is chlamydia, which is also known as the silent sexually transmitted disease, as it can live in the body for many months or even years without showing any outward symptoms until it is fully developed. While protected sex will prevent transmission of chlamydia, it can easily be transmitted between sexual partners during unprotected oral sex.

The same goes for gonorrhoea, a sexually transmitted disease that was in decline twenty years ago but has recently become much more prevalent again. While chlamydia and gonorrhoea both normally live in the cervix or urethra, they can also infect the back of your throat as a result of oral sex.

Fortunately, in most cases chlamydia and gonorrhoea in the throat will be cleared up by the body's own immune system unlike the genital versions of the disease which require medical intervention to clear them up.

While a condom can reduce the risk of contracting herpes, the virus can still be shed from exposed skin not covered by the condom. Unprotected oral sex on the other hand leaves sexual partners with no protection from this virus and transmission is almost guaranteed.

While syphilis is less common, it can still be spread via unprotected oral sex if a syphilis sore is present in the genital area or in the mouth of one partner.

Congenital warts, on the other hand are quite difficult to spread through oral sex as the wart virus finds it difficult to infect the mouth.

Lastly, HIV is still very much with us despite the apparent reduction in awareness campaigns and a lessening of shock media reporting. Transmission of HIV through oral sex is possible and more likely than through protected sex especially if there are any cuts or sores in the mouth or genital area.

So the best form of defence for the protection from contracting sexually transmitted diseases is to use a condom, although most sexual partners would find this off-putting and devalue the whole point of using oral sex in place of full sex. If there are any worries about exposure to sexually transmitted diseases, then a condom should always be used and check-ups should be made regularly by both partners just to be safe and for peace of mind.

If you wonder if you should be more selective in saying yes to dates, go to your local med school library and look at a color atlas of STDs to include o*al thrushes.

Homosexuals are heavily prone to extreme o*al diseases due to their deviate practices coupled with extreme promiscuity (surveys of homosexuals established that many had 500+ s*xual partners, and most of those one-off anonymous bathroom pairings, which a huge percentage had 1,000+).

The bottom line is:

1) Get tested.

2) Before you drop trou or linen with your partner, see their clean clinical results as well.

3) Avoid all interaction with the brown starfish.

4) Pick your partner carefully, and make sure they will fit the bill until Death Do You Part.

5) Stay with her and wear her out if you can.

There is an increase in numbers of throat cancers due to Human Papilloma Virus, especially among the men. Of course, contracted through o*al sex. This info is from WebMed.

Many persons dont know the truth behide o*al sex! that why we must study about this so we can tell others, thier are many ways to get sick from it ! learn read and write the way we need to know bases,

Yo, you must be an expert. Everyone who talks about something as an expert is usually interested in the subject because of a bad first-hand experience with the subject matter.

Most social workers had been abused as chilren.

Most priests and nuns were afraid that the devil will take them after their first nocturnal emissions at 12 or 13.

Most philosophers don't know a hole in the ground from another hole in the ground.

People who lecture others to be wary of STDs, VDs, herpes, aids, and stuff, are like ex-alcoholics and rehabilitated drug users who are hired as motivational speakers.

But... herpes and AIDS are forever... so... whom are you trying to motivate there, Original poster lady, and what is the behaviour you are trying us to feel motivated to do?

Oh, checking your tongue in the mirror won't cure you from the false moral feeling of superiority and condescending attitude that you were infected with when you were having unprotected sex. You need to wash your mouth with soap to get that done, and use mental floss daily.

A very informative article ,but leaves me with some questions.Only where the p*nis is engaged in the erotic play ,condoms can be used to to prevent contracting of ventral disease. If the male is doing cu**il with a female whose vulva is affected with venereal disease , isn't there a possibility of him getting affected with the disease ?Can't the disease be transmitted even through mouth-to-moth kiss,when one of the partners is affected by the disease in the mouth or throat? I think the answers to the questions are 'yes'. If so ,the scope of the sex act becomes limited to some extent.I may please be corrected ,if I am wrong
