Reasons Men Should Avoid Putting Their Mouths In A Woman's Vagina

People have their preferences concerning everything they do, even when these things have health implications. There are a lot of reasons why men should avoid cunnilingus.

According to Healthline, it is considered unsafe. You need to recognize that sexually transmitted infections (STIs) can be transmitted through the cunnilingus, just as they can through any other type of reproductive activity.

This means that if a man engages in cunnilingus without using a barrier method such as a dental dam, he could be at risk of contracting an STI. He's also at risk of passing it on to others.

STIs such as herpes, gonorrhea, and chlamydia can all be transmitted through the cunnilingus, and some STIs can even lead to serious health complications if left untreated. In addition to the risk of STIs, there are other health concerns that men need to consider concerning cunnilingus.

For example, certain types of oral cancers have been linked to the human papillomavirus (HPV). This can be transmitted through the cunnilingus.

Men who have cunnilingus may be at higher risk for developing these types of cancers, especially if they engage in it without protection. This can make them have mouth sores and a painful throat, and it can cause their lymph nodes to swell.

Beyond health concerns, some men avoid it due to social and cultural factors associated with it. In some cultures or religious beliefs, cunnilingus is considered taboo.

Our mouths are just as susceptible as many reproductive organs in the body. The mouth is not immune to any disease or infection that our reproductive organs are susceptible to. Any skin-to-skin contact with the genitalia can spread sexually transmitted diseases.

Your mouth is also part of your skin and could be more susceptible because your saliva is directly connected to your digestive system. If you must avoid skin-to-skin contact, you should also avoid cunnilingus. You need to prioritize your health and safety.
