Are there any benefits of oral sex?
For the record feel free to call me uncivilised when it comes to oral sex issues. Put it plainly, oral sex isn’t my cap of tea – I have never done it, never considered trying it, and have no slightest intentions of attempting it in the foreseeable future.
I am however fascinated by the overwhelming interest the human species show in it. I was deeply amused when I landed on a forum where someone asked whether there is anyone who does NOT practice oral sex!
I am focusing on oral sex in heterosexual relationships, i.e. between male and female human species – specifically oral sex as a sexual activity involving the stimulation of sex partners genitals (penis, testacals vagina, clitoris) using the mouth and tongue. I don’t consider oral activities such as kissing and non-genital body licking to be sex since they don’t involve a sex organ. Of course many tasks would be challenging to accomplish without the aid of hands – so the hand (and its constituent parts) is the only special acceptable accessary to this process.
I strongly believe that sex among animals is for reproductive purposes only. I am also positive that sexual intercourse among animals should involve the penis and vagina – nothing more!
However, the human species has through its so called primate superiority been innovative and transformed sex into a pleasure activity – a benefit that is not shared by any other animal species. If you watch a sexual encounter between dogs, you will realise how unpleasant the experience can be!
Likewise, the human species has through its creativity expanded sex to involve the tongue and mouth in its activity – oral sex.
I have been curious about how, when and why oral sex may have started. Oral sex appears to have been around for long – it is even implied in certain Biblical verses! ‘Like an apple tree among the trees of the forest, so is my beloved among the young men. In his shade I took great delight and sat down, and his fruit was sweet to my taste [Song of Solomon, 2:3]. ‘ He shall make the woman drink the bitter water that brings a curse, and this water that brings a curse and causes bitter suffering will enter her [Numbers, 5:24].
People may engage in oral sex as part of foreplay and sexual intercourse, during, or as intercourse. Oral sex precedes and often replaces sexual intercourse because it is perceived to be noncommittal, quick and safe. It is also claimed that oral sex may limit sexually transmitted diseases.
However, the strongest argument made for oral sex is its use as a contraceptive – oral sex allows the natural prevention of unwanted pregnancy and is an alternative to premarital intercourse for those committed to preserving their chastity before marriage.
- semen serves as a mood stabilizer.
- semen has been shown to lower blood pressure and calm you down, providing stress relief, better sleep and contentment.
- when a woman swallows a man’s semen, she lowers her risk for breast cancer.
- research shows semen reduces stress 10 fold.
- semen actually provides a good shot of zinc, calcium, potassium, various proteins and fructose which provides some nice health bonuses not to mention an immediate energy boost.
- oral sex also gets you in the mood to get intimate.
I have again out of curiosity wanted to understand the actual mechanics of oral sex using the abundant web resources. Do you know what I discovered? Horror – pure horror.
I first observed fellatio – an act of oral stimulation of the penis. Ooohh no! Men, you should be more considerate about women and give them a break! An average mouth is about 3 to 4 inches deep. But an average penis is 4 to 6 inches long – some people are well endowed with up to 12 inches. Even the average penis extends beyond the mouth and ends up in the throat – leading to gagging and in some cases real vomiting! How can that lead to enjoyment? Please, leave that mouth for what it was designed to do.
I have never had the courage of tasting my semen. I even don’t see any reason why such a thought should cross my mind. A little bit of research reveals that the semen taste in fact ranges from neutral to what the ‘guy eats’. Yet guys are subjecting the ladies to consume several centilitres on of this obnoxious fluid during each oral sex occasion. That semen is meant to be ejaculated into the vagina – not the mouth! Stupid you! Unless of course you believe in the above benefits!
Then I watched cunnilingus – oral sex performed on females. It is one of the most disgusting things I have watched. Opening the vagina and licking it – on several occasions, the tongue (mouth) actually deliberately strayed into the anus!
Remember three facts, 1) most sex does not occur after having a bath/shower, 2) the vagina constantly secretes mucus to keep the viginal lining moist, 3) urine drops remain in the vagina – as Adam Watson found out (read 4th paragraph here) things can get messy!
Come-on! Those are feces – excrement – urine – mucus – these are unwanted products expelled from the body! How can you give the body what the body has already rejected?
Is love really that blind? Should you eat, drink and lick excrement just because of love?
