For decades, there has been heated debate about whether or not ingesting male reproductive cells is safe. Despite the fact that many studies have shown that some persons who engage in this behaviour at various degrees are perfectly safe and healthy, others are exposed to some viruses.
This article is based on an article published in "Medical News Today," and it examines the scientific data pertaining to the aforementioned questions.
Researchers have concluded that ingesting semen poses no health risks to humans because it contains no toxic substances. Yet, there are a few scenarios in which ingesting semen would not be a good idea.
Still, semen allergies are a real thing, and it's important to be aware of the risks. Because that semen is a biological fluid, it can also carry some STIs like HIV, leading to what is known as seminal plasma hypersensitivity. But, before partaking in sexual activity, it is prudent to get tested for sexually transmitted infections. Other measures to limit the spread of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) include having an open dialogue about the topic and use barrier methods of contraception.
