Oral - Genital Sex - An Overview

Oral-Genital Sex is commonly called "blow job; give head; go down on; eat out; lunch at the Y; etc." Once you get past that, you are o.k.

Defined as oral stimulation of a partner's genitals, it may be male to female, female to male, male to male or female to female.

Some people are convinced that their genitals are ugly, that they are dirty or diseased or that they smell awful. Let's deal with these feelings.

Ugly - Females complain their labia are too big, vagina too "sloppy", clitoris too big or too small. Males believe their testicles are blue, penis too large, too small, circumcised or not, and it may have a noticeable curve to it (see Peyronie's Disease). Hey, get over it - it is your body, different from everybody else's and a loving partner will accept and love it.

There are a few diseases that you would not want to find on you or your partner's genitals. Don't go near an active Herpes lesion, Genital Warts, Gonorrohea, Trichomonas ( Vaginitis) or Yeast infections. A few of these have a very strong (dead fish) odour.

You may not be aware that your partner has an infection; your partner may not know, so you must be responsible for your own sexual health…practice SAFER SEX. Use a condom every time.

Both male and female genitals have their own distinctive odour and taste that, believe it or not, are an aphrodisiac for your partner. Oral sex may be used as a pleasurable part of foreplay or it may be used by itself for sexual satisfaction for both males and females.

MYTHS ABOUT ORAL SEX

#1. You can get pregnant swallowing ejaculate. NO.

#2. You are supposed to be an expert on your partners genitals. NO - ask them what feels good.

#3. Oral sex is safe for the prevention of HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases (STD's). NO - we are now saying it is "risky behavior" for transmission of HIV.

#4. A guy wants you to swallow his ejaculate. NO - If you're using a condom, you won't have to worry about that pressure. If you're in a long-term, monogamous relationship and not using condoms, you decide whether you want to do that or not. It won't hurt you, but many people find it gross.

#5. Ejaculate, either rubbed on or swallowed, with clear up your acne or give you big breasts or eliminate menstrual cramps. The latest myth I have heard is that ejaculate, taken into your mouth will whiten your teeth. NOT….. just another line guys have developed over the centuries. Tell him to grow up.
