You can get sickness through a blowjob

How you can protect yourself against sexually transmitted diseases during oral sex

It is no secret that sexual education leaves a lot to be desired in this country. However, there is one rule that everyone should have heard of by now: use condoms. We all know that condoms reduce the risk of STIs and pregnancy when used in vaginal intercourse, and also make anal sex a reasonably safe proposition. But what about oral sex anyway?
When it comes to condoms, most people think of penetration first, and after all, no one has gotten pregnant from a blowjob. Nevertheless, it is important to protect yourself even during oral sex, as you can catch STIs here too.
It's not entirely clear how risky unprotected oral sex is, because many people who give each other oral sex also have vaginal or anal sex afterwards. In these cases, it is not possible to determine whether the sexually transmitted disease is caused by fellatio (oral stimulation of the penis) or cunnilingus (oral stimulation of the vulva), subsequent penetration, or both. Even so, it is known that sexually transmitted diseases are spread through oral sex. These diseases include: chlamydia, gonorrhea (also known as gonorrhea), syphilis, herpes, human papillomavirus (HPV), trichomoniasis, and HIV.

How do you protect yourself from sexually transmitted diseases during oral sex?

Orally stimulating someone with an infected vagina, penis, or rectum can cause chlamydial, gonorrhea, syphilis, herpes, or human papillomavirus pathogens to enter their throat. These pathogens can then, in turn, spread to his or her genitals when another partner is orally satisfied. With diseases such as chlamydia or gonorrhea there are sometimes no noticeable symptoms apart from a slight sore throat or small sores on the lips, in the mouth or on the skin. The perfidious thing is that the already infected partner often does not know anything about the sexually transmitted disease or about their own risk of infection, since the symptoms do not necessarily occur. It is therefore advisable to only have unprotected oral sex with your steadfast partner if you have both tested negative for STDs and are not sexually active outside of your relationship. For everyone else, it's important to protect yourself.
And how do you protect yourself during oral sex? Again, condoms will likely come to mind first. But they only work if you give oral pleasure to someone who has a penis. Anyone else who practices cunnilingus or anilingus (oral sex on the anus) can do very little with condoms. Which brings us back to the lousy sex education from the beginning: Nobody tells you how to have safe oral sex outside of fellatio!
We can help: Use a dental dam, also known as a leak cloth, rubber dam or oral protection cloth. This is a thin square made of latex or polyurethane that you can put over the vulva or anus. Usually they are sold where you can get condoms, but if you can't find one, you can make your own dental dam. To do this, you just grab a condom, cut it off at the top and bottom and then open one side of the tube again, and you get a rectangle made of latex. Normal condoms can sometimes taste a bit like plastic, which is why condoms with taste are also a good choice.
The thought of covering your partner's genitals with latex and then satisfying them 'from the outside' may sound more like a mood killer at first. Gynecologist Nicole Williams advises: “The fact that latex inevitably reduces the feeling of pleasure is simply not true. Applying a lubricant to the side of the dental dam that is on the genitals can even increase pleasure. ”And it is safe too!
