What is oral sex?

Close up of a concerned young man

Oral sex is a type of sexual act where a person uses their mouth for sexual contact with their partner’s penis, vagina, or rectum. If a guy receives oral sex, it means that his partner is using their mouth on his penis, scrotum (ball sack), and nearby skin.

You should also know that you can definitely get an STI from oral sex; the only way to lessen your risk is by using condoms and dental dams.
