I remember a time when MouthAction was thought to be edgy or even a taboo.In fact many still find it repulsive and some religious folks have described it as sinful.
However studies show that the practice has significantly spiked in recent times.In America, Almost half of teens and almost 90% of adults aged 25-44 have ever had MouthAction with someone of the opposite sex, according to a CDC survey done between 2006 and 2008.
The art of sex, sexuality has undergone tremendous changes over the years.The cultural perception and the practice varies from culture to culture.
However, with globalization the thick line separating our views has been significantly thinned or even broken apart.
MouthAction is not a new sexual practice, infact it is featured in the oldest sex book in recorded history- KAMASUTRA.
As satisfying and pleasurable it is, it definitely comes with some peculiar risks.
Here are the disease that could be so acquired:
#1 MouthAction Is Linked To Throat Cancer
Cancer? Yes you read it right, says American Cancer Society
Well, it not the MouthAction that causes the cancer per se but a Virus transmitted via sex including MouthAction – Human Papilloma Virus.
Its not all individual with the virus that develops the cancer but advanced DNA testing has demonstrated the presence of it DNA is some cancers of the throat.
So if you must indulge, make sure your partner is clean
#2 Human Papilloma Virus(HPV)
Human papillomavirus (HPV) causes different types of warts on various parts of the body, including
genitals, hands, face, etc. Over a hundred types of HPV strains have been identified, out of which, about
40 strains cause genital warts. Certain strains of HPV can lead to cervical and anal cancers as well.
This disease is less likely to spread through MouthAction. However, cases have been reported wherein the
disease was spread by kissing an affected person with active lesions
There are two types : Herpes Simplex Type I & II
Type I affect mainly oral infections while Type II causes Genital infection but there could be cross infection.
It causes painful lesions and inflamed vesicles in the genitals, mouth, hands, and fingers, that resemble
#5 Viral Hepatitis
Hepatitis Viruses are a group of viruses that primarily affects the Liver.They include Hepatits A, B, C and others but the only sexually transmitted is HEPATITS B.
It has been described to be 10 times more infectious than HIV infection.
It is present in most body secretions including SALIVA which makes it transmissible via MouthAction.
also referred to as “silent disease“, as it has mild, or no major symptoms. However, if left untreated, it can
cause irreversible damage to the female reproductive system, causing infertility.
Gonorrhea is caused by a bacterium called, Neisseria gonorrhoea, and it affects both males and females.
This disease not only infects the genitals, but also other body parts like the eyes, throat, joints, etc.
