Is rimming safe?

    This is my first post on the new site, so greetings to everyone.

    I’m interested in trying rimming on my wife. I’ve brought it up with her and she’s open to letting me do it, but she’s concerned about cleanliness (I am too, truth be told). Is there a way to do it safely? If my wife were to shower immediately beforehand and pay special attention “down there,” would that be enough to take care of the concerns? Are there other precautions that should be taken? Or is it just a bad idea?

      I would guess the medical profession would say, “No, it’s not safe, health wise.”

      My husband enjoys doing it, and we have never had any problems.  We just practice being freshly and well washed in that area.  Also, if I have had anything that even resembles a stomach issue, we bypass any kind of anal activity.

        I had to look this one up, but I now have a new answer for the QOTD for 12/3/19.

        To answer your question, I think it’s just a bad idea. Maybe not all bacteria that comes from that area is especially bad, but certainly the ones that are are really, REALLY especially bad. I wouldn’t think it would be worth getting sick.

          And so, is kissing permitted or not?

            Slipthegrasp, we haven’t talked about it again yet–things have been busy lately. But maybe soon!

             

            SeekingChange, are we talking ordinary soap and water, or anything special? Antibacterial soap perhaps? Again, just wanting to be sure we’re doing it the safest way possible!

              @AGB, I just use what I use when I shower, Dove for sensitive skin. I wouldn’t think anti-bacterial would be good to use around the vulva, she could throw off any good bacteria.

                I do this to my wife quite regularly and she loves it.

                  Its safe if you are clean.  I love when DH rims me. It feels amazing and the “taboo” is also a turn on.
