Oral Sex

  • The practice of using the mouth and/or tongue to stimulate the genitals

  • “Cunnilingus”(a.k.a. eating out, licking out) - oral stimulation of the clitoris or vagina

  • “Fellatio” (a.k.a. giving head, blowjob) – oral stimulation of the penis

  • Although oral sex is considered a lower risk activity for spreading STIs, infections such as gonorrhea, chlamydia, herpes, syphilis and HIV all have the ability to spread through oral sex.

To make oral sex safer, it is important to:

  • Always use condoms (latex or polyurethane).

  • Flavoured condoms are fine - unless they say “for novelty use only”

  • Use a latex barrier (dental dam) if performing cunnilingus

  • Avoid oral sex immediately after brushing or flossing teeth

  • Avoid performing oral sex on a women while she is on her period

  • Avoid performing oral sex if there are cuts or sores on the mouth or genitals

  • Rinse with antibacterial mouthwash after oral sex, but do not brush or floss your teeth right away
