Is It Bad To Swallow Semen?

Oral Sex is a practice that both men and women enjoy, making it largely pleasurable, exciting and perfect for incredible foreplay. There are many doubts surrounding the subject that arise either through ignorance or misconceptions about sex, there are certain issues that are not entirely clear. And one of the most common is whether it is bad to swallow semen when practicing oral sex on a man, and so some women can find it very unpleasant and others find it exciting and tempting. If you have doubts, read this ASKANJALI.COM article and discover if swallowing semen carries some risks.

First, it is important to clarify that semen is an organic fluid generated by the male sexual apparatus containing enzymes and other substances, zinc, protein, vitamins, lipids, calcium, potassium and sodium. As a result, it has even been shown that semen can have several benefits for women  and therefore, we can say that it is NOT harmful to swallow semen at the time of performing oral sex on a man. However, as semen is a vessel for diseases, it is important to consider the risks involved in swallowing semen as well.

There is a false belief that Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) or Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) are transmitted only vaginally or anally, a completely false assumption. Infection of diseases can also happen through oral sex. Therefore it is also recommended to use a condom for oral sex, unless you and your partner have been screened for disease, to enjoy a carefree experience.

We conclude that swallowing semen during sex is not bad if you're sure your partner or companion is completely healthy and not suffering from any infectious diseases or STDs. Otherwise, especially in casual encounters, do not forget to always use protection for both oral sex and intercourse, it is the only way by which you can stay avoid the spread of diseases like: genital herpes, Chlamydia, gonorrhea, genital warts, Hepatitis B or HIV, though the latter has a smaller risk percentage.

Also, one cannot ignore the importance of maximizing the hygiene of the intimate area before oral sex. Both parties should clean their genitals well before sex to prevent the spread of bacterial diseases.

Well if you are clean, then there is no problem in having a few sips of semen.

Why only few sips? One can drink all the semen, which is rarely more that a spoonful. There will be no harm.
