Is It Safe For My Lover to Go Down On Me While Using a Vaginal Spermicide?!
I am unable to take birth control pills or other hormonal birth control methods. I would like to try the contraceptive vaginal suppositories as a back up for condoms. My question, once I've inserted a suppository is it still safe for my lover to go down on me? The instructions on the package do not address that question specifically. I don't know if the ' stuff' stays up around my cervix or what...any advice? Thanks!
Dear Bitter But Not Deadly,
We can hear the laughter at the poison control center now, ' You say your boyfriend was performing cunnilingus on you and thinks he may have ingested some spermicide? Excuse me a moment... Bwah Hah Hah!!!' You can pretty much rest assured that if there isn't a warning label on the thing then it isn't harmful. Look at the fact that a little packet of chemical looking stuff in a box of new shoes carries the warning ' Do not eat.' The company assumes the thickest morons in the world are going to buy their product and think, ' Hey! Look at that! There's a sample of new candy in my shoe box!' and eat the crap. Well you can bet some bright young R& D scientist at your spermicide company came to the realization that people using their products might be engaging in some oral copulation. It's not going to taste good but it won't hurt your boy-toy.
However! We will relate one dormitory story passed on every year. Is it just an urban legend the older guys tell to scare and confuse the younger ones or is it true, leaving some poor sap as an example to the world? You decide.
We don't know if this story is true or not and we're not going to try and replicate it. We have however used spermicides without any problems (following the directions). This includes cunnilingus without pain or calls to the poison control center but here's the link to the National Capital Poison Center just in case.
