Spit or Swallow: Should You Just "Put It in Your Mouth?"

The great debate. Do you spit or swallow? We often only hear this conversation in the context of fellatio, where a person is giving someone a blowjob. At ejaculation when you catch the fluids in your mouth your decision is to spit or swallow. One is safer and the other has some caution to consider. We have to mention which genital to mouth fluids get exchanged when the business is cunnilingus too, as well as talk about the risk factors of ingesting from oral sex.

You can get some 101 learning about oral sex from this article by The Minority Sex Report.
They let you know that oral sex includes cunnilingus, fellatio, and anilingus and give you a few ways on how to do it and stay safe. Now that you're acquainted with the prerequisites we can start leveling up.

As mentioned previously in this post from this blog:
With the mouth and vulva having similar conditions, being warm, moist, lipped environments it's important to know that many STDs can be transferred to and thrive in both.  
People haven't completely grasped that STIs are possible through oral sex. If genitals touch each other and/or the mouth the infections can be passed to and flourish in both areas. Whether penis to mouth, mouth to the vulva or the tongue meeting the anus. You have to be mindful of the liabilities of engaging in the act as well as imbibing the fluids. Think about it this way: if raw penetrative sex that involves bodily fluids being exchanged increases chances of contracting an STI, then there have to be similar consequences when using the mouth on the genitals and anus.

The CDC emphasizes:
Risk of infection from oral sex:
  • Giving oral sex to a man with an infected penis can result in getting  chlamydia in the throat.
  • Giving oral sex to a woman with an infected vagina or urinary tract may result in getting chlamydia in the throat.*
  • Giving oral sex to a man or woman with an infected rectum might result in getting chlamydia in the throat.*
  • Getting oral sex on the penis from a partner with chlamydia in the throat can result in getting chlamydia of the penis.  
  • Getting oral sex on the vagina from a partner with chlamydia in the throat might result in getting chlamydia of the vagina or urinary tract.*
  • Getting oral sex on the anus from a partner with chlamydia in the throat might result in getting chlamydia in the rectum.*
* Statements followed by an asterisk (*) have not been well studied.

Though chances are different than with genital to genital contact, if there are cuts and blood is produced on the genitals or anus there is a probability of contracting HIV; same if they have an open sore that is herpetic.

So what does that mean when it comes to deciding on whether to spit or swallow?! It means that first if you enjoy absorbing and digesting someone's bodily fluids you're welcome to do so but like sex having its pleasures and risks the same applies to oral sex and finishing. Infections that spread from skin to skin contact, cuts, and open sores are possible and drinking your partners' juices and cum elevate chances of infections. There's a reason for having protective tools for oral sex such as dental dams. So play and choose wisely.
