Is there such a thing as a semen allergy? I am wondering because, when my boyfriend cums in my mouth and I swallow it, it kinda burns the back of my throat. Even if I drink water afterwards, it still stings a little while after, then it goes away. Could it be because its so salty, or just because I don't typically do it that often? I'm just curious as to how I can prevent the stinging, because I don't mind the swallowing; no muss no fuss. So if you could help, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Yes, there is. It's rare, but some people are allergic to semen.

But that reaction can also be caused by infection, either already in your throat, or if his semen is carrying one.

So, since you're not practcing safer sex, even if you have been screened before (both of you) and monogamous for some time, do get those screenings done soon if you're not up to date (again, both of you).

And as is obvious, in the interim -- until you weed out and infection or have the allergy verified -- using a condom during oral sex is the easy answer.

I'm assuming then, that you and your partner have both been tested twice for STDs and STIs, six months apart, and have been monogamous the entire time? Because STDs and STIs do cause a lot of muss and fuss- if you're lucky. If you're unlucky, some of them, like HIV can be fatal. Using a condom for oral sex greatly reduces the risk of you contracting any diseases and/or infections, and it would also prevent you from swallowing your partner's semen-- while you say you don't mind, your post is about an aspect of swallowing semen that you clearly DO mind. So use a condom, and you get both birds with one stone.

Also, if you haven't been tested and have been engaging in unsafe sex (which includes oral sex), please get yourself a doctor or gyno appointment, and get tested.
