Oral Sex: Is it Safe?

According to recent studies, oral sex is on the rise, especially among high school and middle school students. Because oral sex doesn’t result in pregnancy, many teens believe that it’s safe.

In reality, oral sex is linked to the spread of multiple STI’s, including: Syphilis, Gonorrhea, HIV (causes AIDS), HPV, Genital Herpes, Chlamydia. Some of these STI’s are incurable, and all are capable of doing long term damage to a person’s health.
