Is it safe to give oral sex (blow job, natural French) without a condom?

Answer

No. Even though a dick may look normal, the client could still have HIV, hepatitis B, syphilis, chlamydia or gonorrhoea because these infections are carried in semen (cum) and pre-cum. Genital herpes, warts and syphilis can also be transmitted by skin-to-skin contact—from his dick to your lips, mouth or throat.

SWOP recommends you ALWAYS use condoms for oral sex as well as for vaginal and anal sex.

Remember: providing unprotected oral sex to sexual partners greatly increases your risks of contracting one of several infections in the throat—and passing them on to others. If you’re providing unprotected oral services make sure you have regular STI screens and always ask for a throat swab.
