Can You Get Sick From Swallowing After Oral Sex?

When it comes to blowjobs, the big thing people want to know is do you spit or swallow? (They also want to know how to insert a peen in their mouths without gagging.) If you’ve never given a blowjob and you’re debating about whether you should join #TeamSpit or #TeamSwallow, one of the deciding factors is whether you could get sick from swallowing.

We hear a lot about the act of swallowing, but we don’t exactly hear what happens after we do it. If you’ve never given a BJ before, you probably want to know about whether swallowing gives you a tummy ache, or whether it’s even healthy to begin with. To help you clear things up, here’s the deal on whether you can actually get sick from swallowing semen during a blowjob.

So, is swallowing actually okay?

You don’t have to worry about swallowing making you hurl. It’s unlikely that you’ll get sick from doing it. If you’re someone with a sensitive tummy and you swallow a bucketful of semen, you could end up feeling a bit nauseous, but that’s a rarity. It’s also highly unlikely you will experience an allergic reaction to jizz and barf it up.

I’m still worried about puking. Don’t people gag when giving blowjobs?

The gagging normally comes when people put the penis in their mouth, or they try and deep throat, and the head of the penis goes to the back of throat. The act could make you gag and possibly even bring up, but it’s the act doing it, not spunk.

 

If I decide to swallow, what am I actually swallowing? What’s in semen, anyways?

Here’s a little health lesson for you, kids. Semen is actually made up of water, zinc, enzymes, fructose, ascorbic acid, citric acid, and proteins.

Hmmm. Doesn’t sound like the most delicious thing.

You’ll probably hear from people who love the taste of semen and those who cannot stand it. Then there are those who find it okay and those who don’t really taste anything. I know it’s not helpful to have the varying opinions, but semen can change based on the person and depending on certain diet and health factors.

A lot of people describe semen as being “salty” or “different.” Other common comparisons include soap, fresh oysters, seawater, and sometimes even mushrooms.

Is it healthy?

There are some reports that semen can be as good for us as a protein shake. Really. You’ve probably heard about buff guys wanting to drink their own spunk to get more muscles. That remains to be seen, but it seems like semen isn’t something that’s bad for you, like a cardboard burger.

Anything else I should know?

If you’re still not sold on whether swallowing is okay, there are even recipes out there on the internet that include semen in food and even drinks. I’m not joking. Yeah, that’s taking it a bit far for most of us, but it goes to show you that it’s usually fine to swallow.

Wow. Any closing thoughts?

Just remember that it’s your choice whether you want to spit or swallow. Swallowing may not be bad for you, but that’s no reason to do it. If you’re more comfortable spitting, do it. If bae is offended by it or tries to pressure you, you will want to look at the situation and decide whether someone like that is worth your time.
