    Oral Sex and Tonsillitis
    An_253005 posted:
    Im currently suffering from a mild form of tonsillitis Im on antibiotics and pain killers how ever I was wondering is it safe to perform oral sex on my male friend without passing anything on to him. Neither of us are infected with an std. I was just wondering is it safe to give him head while Im like this?

    Your willing to do that with a sore throat? He must be special. I would suggest not giving oral while on antibotics. Yes, you could pass an infection orally to him. If your on pain killers, you may injure youself and not know it. If it's a spray numbing medication, he'll go numb also. What fun is that.
