A friend of mine told me that swallowing after giving oral sex is alright, yet another friend told me the complete opposite, she said that you should spit it out. I don't think it's healthy to swallow(not that I have any personal experience on the subject). Who is right?

Swallowing or spitting doesn't really make a difference per health issues- simply having semen in your mouth at all, however, creates an STI risk.

Well, it all comes down to it being simply a matter of personnal preferences. While some people might like to swallow, others don't and it's cool either way. If you aren't comfortable swallowing or find it gross, then you really don't have to. In fact, it might be best for you not to engage in it if that's how you feel about it.

And no, it doesn't pose any hazard to your health, besides an STIs risk, as Lea suggested, if your partner isn't STIs free. But, really, any unprotected oral sex (like blowjobs), no matter whether or not there is swallowing poses an STIs risk, so if you intend on having unprotected oral sex or are already engaging in it, you should be using a condom until you and your partner have both been tested twice 6 months apart and the results have showed you were both STIs free.

If you and your partner have both been tested and are committed to being monotonous, then I guess it would remain a personal preference of the individual on the receiving end.

I have not found myself in that position so I can't advise differently. But do remember that direct contact with body fluids always pose a risk for the possible transfer of sexually transmitted diseases.

Whether you spit or swallow does not really deal with your health, but it can cause you to get an STI. Make sure he has been tested recently.
