Rimming and health - is it risky?

jennifur77 jennifur77
I was wondering about rimming and staying sanitary. All I can think of is germs. Is it risky for things like Ecoli, etc? Just wondering. .. has anyone ever gotten over the squeemishness to actually do this to a partner?

I couldn't actually put my tongue on someone's butt, and don't really ask for it done to me. Been there though & I worried about it being too risky as well. I don't know that I've ever heard of a problem happening over this, but I definitely understand being worried. I'd just make sure it was extremely cleaned immediately before the.. act. Lol. That would reduce risks, I think. You could always use a dental dam.

Ya, I definitely wouldn't do it without a barrier, if I did it at all. I would not want to get sick from E Coli. It's just not worth the risk to me, so I stay away from anal+oral acts. I don't even like the idea of anal at all, so for myself stay away from it

I've done it. I'm not really squeamish about it.

If you aren't squeamish about it, you don't find it risky at all?

I suppose there is an element of risk involved, but I think we have that same risk with most things. Think about everything your hands touch in a day. Do you really wash your hands before EVERY time they go near your mouth? I highly doubt it. We bite our nails, pick at our teeth, etc. with dirty hands all the time. Germs are everywhere.

That being said, I won't do it unless my husband has just showered, but does the 'risk' prevent me from doing it? No, it doesn't.

I agree with this.

I can totally see how it would be a health risk, but you can always clean your partner's butt ahead of time (shower/wipes/whatever ), or use a barrier.

I've rimmed all of my long term partners since my first nearly forty years ago.
As long as that ass is clean, I like it.

Great to know. . . Not saying I'm doing it yet, but something to consider.

I've only done it to a couple of partners. I love doing the act, but have never had it done to me. I'm sure I would enjoy it, but It's not something I feel comfortable asking for. Also, I have to know that the anus is clean and fresh before sticking my tongue in there.
