Once upon a few years ago, I was a teen aged college student. I might have been in my twenties. It was the New Year party season and at a countdown party I met a guy. Before we even made it to the countdown, I had met a guy and got a New Year's kiss.

It seemed so important back then, now the idea of finding someone randomly just to snog grosses me out. I know too much now. But back to the story.

We managed to find a little privacy (perhaps not as private as we both thought) but I ended up going down on him. He got a New Year's blowjob and I got... well, nothing. But I realize now how lucky I was then and a few other times when I performed unsafe oral sex on guys I had just met.

Happy New Year

First of all, happy New Year. Make-out and blowjob season, right? (Got a blowjob question - ask me.)

Second, stay safe. There's a lot of social pressure that we "hook up" for the New Year countdown, especially if you are a certain age. This kind of activity however, puts you at risk of contracting an STI.

Safe Oral Sex

It's easy to think you don't need a condom for blowjobs simply because the foremost reason for using condoms is birth control and, hey, you can't get pregnant with a blowjob, right?

It's true, you can't get pregnant. But you can get herpes. Or HPV. Or a list of other diseases that aren't always visible, don't always have symptoms but often spread very easily. Some infections, on the other hand, have very visible symptoms and can be painful and generally embarrassing.

So please, have safe oral sex this New Year!

Safety in Monotony

Also known as safety in monogamy, the best way to stay safe when it comes to oral sex is by doing it with one person who does it also with only one person. In other words, you can only truly be safe by being in a truly monogamous relationship.

If you are single, I don't want to say don't look for a hook up but if you do, at least play safe. And when it comes time for the countdown, don't feel like you fail if you aren't swapping saliva (or anything else for that matter) with a random guy you just met.
