Why Oral Sex Is Not The Same With Safe Sex

The intimacy that sexual intercourse implies considered, one with little knowledge on STDs will understand that, in fact, there is no such thing as 100% safe sex. Wherever there is an exchange of body fluids – which can be achieved even on microscopic level of epidermal contact, such as with minor skin lesions – there is a chance for a disease to be contracted.

But before worrying to the point of giving up to intimacy, remember that there are always actions to perform in order to practice safer sex. The only concern left is not to embrace the misunderstanding that the controversial acts of fellatio and cunnilingus are safe only because they skip the actual penetration.


As a final observation in this direction, safety involves both potential diseases and unwanted pregnancies. In order to stay away from HIV, herpes, HPV, gonorrhea, Chlamydia, syphilis, hepatitis B or who knows what else, you can always resort to:

  • Condoms
  • Dental dams

When going down on a man, the condom makes everything easy while the dental dam is for going down on a woman. Many people reject them either because are not properly informed or because they like engaging into risky sexual behaviors and consider the pleasure of direct body contact to worth the risk of contracting an illness and deal with it for the rest of their life.

In the end, sexuality is an important part of your life and you haven’t gone through all the efforts of following a strict male enhancement program so you will now resume to traditional, simple and plain intercourse. Just use the dental dam and everything is allowed, rimming (oral anal sex) included.

You can spend time looking to buy it from sex shops or pharmacies, but, even better, why not make yourself one from your handiest resource, the male condom? By cutting it on both ends and then on one of the two sides you have obtained a protective layer to open your road.

Depending on your preferences, you can use a simple condom, one with a particular flavor and even add some lubricant. As the two of you enjoy using it, make sure you do not accidentally switch its sides. And under no circumstances use a dam more than once.

Now that we have agreed on the whole notion of safe love making and gave you the information on how to go with it, there is only one last issue to approach: the periodical medical checkups.

In the unfortunate event that you have contracted a sexually transmitted disease, you can either discover it within days following the contact or later, after months. The last circumstance is the most dangerous as the more you wait for taking a treatment, the harder will be to make yourself better. And for things to be even more delicate, some affections are only detectable after a particular time frame. For this reason, whenever being sexually active and having more than one partner in several months you must go test yourself even if not experiencing any symptoms.

Our advice is to find you a steady partner and build a serious relationship from it. Your worries will considerably diminish from this perspective and you can always enrich your sex life with her.
