Of course, the safest sex is masturbation.
Next down the ladder of safety is mutual.
Chances are, the majority of us silly humans will never restrict ourselves to simple cock-stroking. Then the least we can do is be informed and prepared. One more thing for the well-equipped guy (or gal) to have in the sex tool box:
Gonorrhea is a fast-growing threat in the U.S and Australia. It is especially spreading among gay and bisexual men. But, not in the way you would expect. Evidently, oral sex is the culprit.
At some time during the HIV-AIDS crisis, it was discovered that blow jobs were considered to be a fairly safe-sex alternative. Now, here comes another infectious thing to spoil the fun.
It appears there is help. According to a report at Huffington Post, Listerine - yes, Listerine, the common mouthwash - is found to kill gonorrhea. So, guys, the next time a hook-up for mutual jack-off turns into suck-fest,
or you go looking for some willing dudes at the glory hole, make sure you've got a small bottle of Listerine nearby.
Ladies and straight dudes, the same goes for you. The next time you grab that weekend hook-up (in addition to making sure the condom is securely in place before any penetrative activity) if there's a chance for any oral activity, make sure there's Listerine around.
While long-term trials still need to be done, what would it hurt to whip it out and...gargle?
