    Weird question
    An_208314 posted:
    My boyfriend and I were engaging in oral sex with each other recently. I gagged for the first time. He got mad at me. I apologized but it didn't seem to do any good. Anyway, the next morning, I woke up with a very sore throat. It continued to hurt and get worse throughout the day. I was wondering if my sore throat was a result of the oral sex and the face that I gagged. If anyone can give me some advice, I'd appreciate it. Thanks. ;)

    Why did he get mad?

    Wow i am with three point on that one!! Why did he get mad? maybe he should try well never mind I will shut up but next time... if there is one just throw up on him..ha ha he will think the gagging is not so bad and not to mention it is a very natural reaction unless your an anaconda snake ?? spelling?
    mommy2mkg responded:
    I guess he got mad because I have never gagged on him before. I just realized my own typo. It's supposed to say fact, not face.
    FCL replied to mommy2mkg's response:
    Gagging is a very normal reflex to having something pushed down your throat :D It is a REFLEX for goodness sake. A reflex is something you cannot control. All it takes is for him to thrust in a manner that you were'nt expecting... Even those of us that can deepthroat gag occasionally.

    Franckly, he needs to get a grip.
    Elle0317 replied to mommy2mkg's response:
    Yes, the gagging likely caused the sore throat. If your throat is contracting in an effort to dislodge the object, in your case his penis, then yes it may cause some irritation depending on how strong of a reflex it was.
    Elle0317 replied to Elle0317's response:
    I forgot to add that I would be concerned with his lack of empathy towards you. To get mad at you for doing something that is beyond your control.... tell him to get a blow-up doll if he wants to treat something with no regard in order to get his satisfaction.
    FCL replied to Elle0317's response:
    Ditto what Elle0317 said.

    Does he want a woman with feelings and reactions or an inanimate toy?
    ontbear responded:
    Hold his penis with a hand so you don't "get" the whole penis. My wife does this and it works well. PA
    An_208315 responded:
    I agree with everyone else. Gagging is a reflex. Does he do the moving when you give oral, or do you do it yourself? If he shoves his penis down your throat, then your gonna gag. If you do it at your own pace, you may still gag, but it will be more controlled. I have seen porn stars gag giving oral, so it's a normal reaction. Tell him to get a grip. Have him shove a long hard object down his throat and see if he gags.

    Ive given head (oral) many times and I gag almost every time but never had a sore throat afterwards...thats kinda new to me.
