Is Oral Sex Good For Your Teeth?

Swallow or not, we’re not going to kink shame you today, however, we know plenty of you guys have searched this million-dollar question, is oral sex actually good for your teeth?

We often hear people joke about how semen may be beneficial for your teeth but does a blowjob a day really keep the dentist away? You have cum to the right place.

Nutritiously, semen is good for your teeth.

However, it is also important to acknowledge that this does not mean oral sex is good for oral hygiene. Some women are allergic to it. In percentage, that’s about 5% of them that are actually allergic to the substance.

That’s about 400,000 women in the United States alone who are allergic to oral sex, we mean semen.

Essentially the allergic reaction is caused by the proteins found in men’s sperm. Some of the symptoms include oral sore, genital itching, blisters, etc. In some severe cases, even difficulty in breathing. 

So the next time when you think of going down on someone, think of this, semen can actually be good for your oral care and your personal well being (well kinda). But that doesn’t mean you should go around gargling strangers’ juice down your throat.

Alright here it cums, the odd-tasting semen is actually pretty nutritious, on paper at least. It is high in protein, packed with Vitamin B12, Vitamin C, Zinc, Calcium, and even Magnesium. A single teaspoon of this natural delicacy provides you as much Vitamin C as a whole orange.

This baby-making liquid is not just great for teeth, it is also known to be an antidepressant. 

Anyway, let’s get back to oral care, that’s what most of you guys are here for anyway. Back to that unfinished blowjob of yours. We aren’t quitters. 

Semen is actually packed with Zinc and Calcium which are great ingredients to combat tooth decay. 


Zinc has often been formulated into oral health products to control plaque to reduce malodor. Zinc helps in the demineralization and remineralization of your teeth which further reduces cavities as well as tooth decay. It also protects your teeth against diseases like gingivitis and other gum diseases. 


No surprise here as it's one of the most important nutrients for healthy teeth. Calcium strengthens the hard outer shell (enamel) of your tooth which acts as a defense against erosion and cavities. Basically, if you lack calcium, be prepared to have oral issues such as weak roots, brittle teeth, tooth decay, and irritated gums.

It is also important to note that semen also contains a high amount of acid-loving bacteria which is detrimental for your teeth as it can break down the enamel that protects your teeth, exposing your teeth to decay. Let’s not forget that this juicy sauce is also packed with other substances that may put your oral and overall health in danger like bacteria causing acids, STI, or STDS.

So always brush and rinse your teeth after your fun time down under and you’ll thank us later. But if you do want clean, healthy, and naturally white teeth, we do recommend you sticking back to brushing your teeth preferably with an electric toothbrush like Dr.Poco, they use the latest technology to clean and protect your teeth from any substance including semen effectively.

Remember, those urban legends that you may have heard on how semen is good for your teeth, well they aren’t entirely false, but they aren’t entirely true either. 

Alright go ahead with that thing you’re about to do, we don’t judge. But don’t forget to take care of your oral health too!
