It could be possible, but i've never heard of it. And unless you and your partner have had two (clean) STD tests, you should really be using condoms/dental dams for oral sex anyway ... Better to be safe than sorry

Too much of anything is probably going to upset your tummy: water, gummy bears, or semen.

However, the easy way to avoid that? Condoms and dental dams for every act of oral sex, every time.

the average ejaculation of semen is about one milliliter. there are 355mL in an American can on Coke. the average male has a 20 minute refractory period during which he cannot become sexually aroused.

so hypothetically, if you were to swallow as much semen as there was in one can of Coke, you'd have to be there a *very* long time (the stomach empties out in three hours, so even if you were able to get 355mL of semen out of a single man, it'd digest first so you wouldn't have 355mL in there at any one time), or you would have to be one of those people who is into bukkake (which involves a whole LOT of risk as far as STDs are concerned.

i think you are referring to thse urban myth about so-and-so celebrity/popular girl at your school/random person who got sick from swallowing so much semen he/she needed to have his/her stomach pumped. it is just that: a myth.

Bear in mind that aside from possible virus particles, semen contains mostly frutose (sugar), zinc, citrate, baking soda and a tiny about of peptides, all of which are relatively non-toxic to the human body.

I *know* there's not enough semen in one ejaculation for that sort of thing, I'm just saying, everything in moderation except diseases and pregnancy.

Here's the link to that urban legend, btw: http://www.snopes.com/college/sex/cheerldr.htm
