Nothing quite like those two words to capture attention ;)
Now.. I've made it no secret that I enjoy oral sex - both receiving and performing. The pleasure associated with receiving requires no explanation - it's incredible if done correctly. It's as simple as that. As for performing, well... there's something incredibly exciting about controlling his pleasure with my mouth. Certainly I can immediately feel his response, but more than that, I can control his entire body and mind with the presence of my lips and my tongue in his most favorite region. I can take him right up to the edge... then slow down. Or.. deny him completely. Or perhaps, just perhaps I may allow him to release. Mmm mmm.
Yes, oral sex is extraordinarily wonderful. (Laughs). It's so wonderful that in thinking about it as I type I've made at least a dozen typos. Thank heavens for a spellchecker :)
I read something today about oral sex that surprised me, however. Did you know that studies have linked oral sex with oral cancer? In fact , it's been suggested that who have had six or more oral sex partners are as much as nine times more likely to develop throat cancer or cancer of the tongue than those who do not engage in oral sex? The link is apparently HPV (human papillomavirus), the virus that has been linked to cervical cancer.
Today more than 34,000 people have oral cancer and 39 percent of those cases are related to HPV, according to data from the American Cancer Society.Both men and women are at risk, but men are 35 percent more likely to develop HPV-related oral cancer than are women. Additionally, as women are at risk of developing cervical cancer because of HPV infection, men are at risk for developing penile cancer.
There is a vaccine available that helps prevent infection with certain species of HPV, so if you find this information concerning, I'd encourage you to speak with your doctor to see if this vaccine is right for you. As with any STD, safer sex practices greatly reduce your risk.
(I know, I know, not quite what you expected from me in a post about oral sex, but I thought if it could make a difference for even one person, then it was worth mentioning.)
