- Doctors says it is dangerous to engage in oral sex if you have multiple partners
- Dr. Mensah advised men to, instead of using their tongue to stimulate the clitoris, use their fingers
Founder of Philteng Medical Centre, Dr. Philemon Mensah, has urged couples to desist from oral sex since it can be deadly.
According to the medical doctor, couples should find alternative means to satisfy themselves sexually instead of resulting to oral sex.
Contributing to a discussion on the issue on Adom FM’s morning show, Dwaso Nsem Friday, Dr. Mensah warned that those engaging in oral sex were twice more likely to have oral HPV infection than those who did not engage in oral sex.
He reveled that, mouth cancer is on the rise and the spread of HPV from oral sex could be the main reason because it [HPV] affects the skin found in areas of the body exposed to moisture including the mouth, rectum, cervix and throat.
He said oral sex has been linked with an increased risk of Human Papiloma Virus (HPV) infection in the mouth with an increased risk of developing throat cancers.
“The highly contagious virus is commonly contracted through unprotected sexual activity,” he added.
In conclusion Dr. Mensah advised the alternative to stimulate the clitoris, should be the use of the fingers and not the tongue.
He also called on people to always go for screening and check-up to guard against cancer of any kind.
