Dr. Koma Jehu Appiah, Country Director for Ipas Ghana, an NGO that is committed to advancing women's reproductive rights, has advised men who are interested in oral sex to ensure their mouth is clean lest they risk introducing infections to the vagina.
According to Dr. Jehu Appiah, the female sex organ is cleaner than the mouth and as such any dirty thing it comes to contact with risks infecting it.
He stated that unlike the female sex organ, the mouth comes into contact with all sorts of food particles and if it is not cleaned properly especially the tongue, introducing it to the vagina could lead to infections such as vaginal discharge.
Dr. Jehu-Appiah who has more than 15 years of medical experience also charged women to insist on their partners taking a shower before engaging in unprotected sex.
He added the practice of engaging in unprotected sex with an unclean male sex organ has led to lots of women contracting infections such as vaginal discharge as well as Urinary Tract Infections.
