Infection risks associated with oral sex Oral sex is now widely practised, in both heterosexual and homosexual relationships.
For many years, it was regarded as an almost 'unmentionable' activity. But these days, research suggests that most sexually active people go in for it sometimes. In 2013 the National Sexual Attitudes and Lifestyle (NATSAL) survey announced that in all age groups (except the over 65s), the majority of people now say that they have oral sex sometimes. ADVERTISEMENT CONTINUE READING BELOW For instance, 71 per cent of young adults (age 16 to 24) reported that they'd had oral sex in the last year. And 80 per cent of 25 to 34 year olds said the same thing. So fellatio and cunnilingus are extremely popular, and are widely regarded as a normal, enjoyable part of a sexual relationship. Furthermore, it's been shown that oral sex has certain positive aspects. It can be extraordinarily effective at helping women to reach a climax. And around 2010, serious worries began to emerge about whether oral sex can give people human papilloma virus (HPV) in the throat area and whether this could lead to cancer. By 2013, it was clear that these fears were justified. Also experts have recently pointed out that there appears to be some significant risk of acquiring chlamydia and gonorrhoea through oral sexual activity. In this article, we look at the louis vuitton alma terre d&ombre various risks. What is oral sex?First, let's just clarify what we mean by 'oral sex'. There are several main types. It is often wrongly referred to as 'a blow job' in fact, it is highly dangerous to 'blow' during this manoeuvre (or during cunnilingus). 'Nippling' is sucking or licking your partner's nipples. It carries almost no risk of any infection except, very rarely, syphilisOro anal sex often referred to as 'rimming' is stimulation of the partner's anus with tongue or lips. Clinical experience suggests that it is relatively uncommon in heterosexuals. However, you obviously cannot get infected if your partner does not have the virus. What other germs could you pick up during oral sex?As any doctor at a genitourinary medicine (GUM) clinic can tell you, it is possible to acquire several forms of sexually transmitted diseases (STD) through oral sex if the other person if infected. GonorrhoeaGonorrhoea, a common STD, can be transmitted to the throat during oral sex, especially fellatio. louis vuitton bracelet watch Because of this fact, GUM clinics often take 'throat swabs' these days. In the throat, the germ can cause inflammation, formation of pus and sometimes soreness. But often, it causes no symptoms at all, and the person just 'carries' it. In 2011, it was estimated that 1.9 per cent of London prostitutes had unsuspected gonorrhoea in their throats. It's likely that they would give the germ to men whom they fellated.

But they do sometimes appear on the lips or tongue, as a result of oral sex. And the disease can be caught from an infected person's mouth. However, please bear in mind that in much of Western Europe, syphilis has been quite uncommon for many years. But in England in 2014, there was an alarming 33 per cent rise in the number of infections! There were 4,317 cases in $4000 louis vuitton shoes all, the vast majority of them being in males. In fact, there were only about 250 cases among women. A striking fact is that 86 per cent of men with syphilis in 2014 were men who have sex with men. Chlamydia Chlamydia trachomatis is a little genital bug that has become almost epidemic among sexually active young people during the early years of the 21st century. It's estimated that in some parts of the UK at least 10 per cent of younger adults have it. It is sometimes found in swabs taken from the throat, and it is thought that it can be transmitted by oral sex, particularly fellatio. In 2011, researchers from University College London revealed that 4 per cent of London sex workers had chlamydia in their throats. This finding is of considerable importance, especially as many men go to prostitutes specifically because they want to be fellated. Also doctors at Guy's and St Thomas' Hospitals found that about 1 per cent of their gay male patients were carrying chlamydia in the throat. Please note that if chlamydia gets established in the throat, mouth or nose, it could cause various infections, particularly of the eye. In 2010, doctors warned that oral sex could cause a one sided chlamydial conjunctivitis, which does not clear up on routine treatment with eye drops. Infections transferred by oro anal sexAs we've indicated above, contact between the mouth and the anus will probably result in the transfer of 'bottom germs' though these will not necessarily cause disease. But it's now louis vuitton bags vs chanel bags clear that the dangerous bowel organisms Salmonella, Shigella and Campylobacter can all be transmitted by oro anal contact.

Because it is now quite common, the Terrence Higgins Trust (0808 802 1221) has issued a useful leaflet on how to avoid it.
