Is it ok to drink your own sperm?

Hi I am a 15 year old gay male. I was just wondering is it ok to drink your own sperm?


Hi Max,

Swallowing one’s own semen does not pose health risks unless a person has certain STI’S. In this case, the risk depends on what STI a person has, its method of transmission, and the area(s) of infection. Gonorrhea and chlamydia are infections that localize in the genitals, mouth, and/or throat. Because these infections can be transferred through semen, and can infect different locations independently, there is a small chance that the infection can spread to the mouth or throat. But if you’re STI-free, feel free to indulge yourself!
