this has been puzzling me...

why does a guy need to wear a condom when getting a blow job? ive never given ne one a blow job, so maybe itslike, if you do it, you'll know, but i really can't see ne purpose in it

They're used for protection against sexually transmitted diseases, just as they are in any other sort of sexual activity.

That's right... I'm a werehouse.

Here's a few reasons...

* Cytomegalovirus
* Gonorrhea
* Hepatitis
* Herpes
* Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV/AIDS)
* Human Papilloma Virus (HPV, Genital Warts)
* Syphilis

I know those are certainly enough reasons for me.

That is ridiculous.

I have yet to find a young person who became pregnant because of knowing HOW. It is usually quite the opposite.
