Oral sex is one of the most common ways of spreading sexually transmitted diseases, according to the latest findings of experts from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Among the most common are chlamydial infections, gonorrhea, herpes and human papillomavirus (HPV). Oral sex is the risk of getting infected with HPV, twice as high as those who avoid it. HPV is responsible for almost all cases of genital warts, but also for cancer of the oral cavity and anal tumors. The latest research published in Chemical Research in Toxicology has shown that while HPV was detected in 21% of patients with oral or cervical cancer in 1990, it grew to 65% after 2000. HPV viruses can also cause relatively rare anal tumors and have been found in nearly half the men who also have rare penile cancer.

Oral sex during pregnancy can lead to the death of a newborn

Oral sex, according to the current study, is also dangerous for expectant mothers.

Many people even now consider oral sex as safe sexual activity. There is no unintended pregnancy, undesirable ejaculation in the mouth is an easy protection of the use of a condom. "However, there are also sexually transmitted infections and infections that can not be stopped in this way. Condoms can only protect against those that are transmitted by body fluids, viruses and bacteria can easily penetrate through protection. There is a risk that a part of the infected skin will be seen from the condom. Even little contact with some infections is enough to transmit, " warns Adam Durcak and adds that the best prevention is loyalty to a partner whose health is well known.
