how to give a safe blowjob

There’s such a thing as too much spit.
The truth: Every guy has preferences on just how wet things get during oral, but don’t worry if you feel like you’re drooling everywhere. That’s part of what feels makes this whole thing feel good, so if you’re slobbering all over it, don’t worry. Just get into it. The only thing you can do wrong during a blow job is stop and apologize about your saliva.

You need to get the whole penis in your mouth.
The truth: Again, different strokes for different folks, but deep-throating a penis is not the only way to get a guy to orgasm. The most sensitive area is the head of the penis, especially at the base of the underside, so stimulating that area with your mouth and tongue is most important. You can put your fist (or just wrap a few fingers) around the penis to stop you from taking too much in your mouth, then run your hand along it and suck like you’re eating the best freeze pop ever.

You can’t get STIs from blow jobs.
The truth: “Many of the diseases that can be transmitted from vaginal or anal intercourse can be transmitted from oral intercourse as well,” says Dr. Brucker. “No matter what you’re doing with someone’s genitals, something can be transmitted.” Although a variety of factors can affect how likely a disease is to be transmitted, Dr. Brucker recommends you treat all forms of sex with caution and practice them safely — that means condoms. This is why flavored condoms exist, you guys.
