A female reader, anonymous, writes (14 December 2009):

From Wikipedia (go ahead, botch me):

Semen is primarily composed of water, but has been shown to contain trace amounts of virtually every nutrient the human body uses.[citation needed] It has somewhat higher amounts of commonly deficient minerals such as potassium, magnesium and selenium.[29] One typical ejaculation contains 150 mg of protein, 11 mg of carbohydrates, 6 mg fat, 3 mg cholesterol, 7% US RDA potassium and 3% US RDA copper and zinc.[30] When metabolized, protein yields 4 kcal/g, carbohydrate also yields 4 kcal/g, and fat yields 9 kcal/g.[31] Hence the food energy in the typical ejaculation is 0.7 kcal/g (2.9 kJ).

There is no risk in ingesting the semen of a healthy man.[32] Seminophagia carries no additional risk other than those inherent in fellatio. Fellatio does carry some risk for sexually transmitted diseases such as HIV or herpes,[33] however, HIV and all other viruses are inhibited by saliva[34] and destroyed by stomach acid.[35] Research has suggested that performing unprotected oral sex on a person infected with human papillomavirus (HPV) might increase the risk of oral or throat cancer. The study found that 36 percent of the cancer patients had HPV compared to only 1 percent of the healthy control group. It is believed that this is due to the transmission of HPV because this virus has been implicated in the majority of cervical cancers.[36] Even if semen is cold before the individual ingests it, viruses can stay active for a long period of time once outside the body. Contracting diseases from oral sex is more likely if there are sores in the mouth.

The only way to know he's 100% clean is by having tests. Semen will not do you any harm if you have a sore in your mouth if your partner is clear.

This is verified as being by the original poster of the question

So If I know 100% that he is clean nothing will happen to me? And if I have a sore and he is clean can I still get some kind of illness?

Fatherly Advice agony auntWay back when I was in high school there was a rumor going around among the girls that it contained 1000 calories per tablespoon. I was pretty sure that was just an old wives tale intended to keep the girls from trying it.

The worst that can happen if you swallow semen is that you might contract a sexually transmitted disease in your mouth - but that could happen if you didn't swallow too, sucking him would do that too if he had a disease. If you both get tested you'll know for sure. HIV isn't normally transmitted this way unless you have sore, bleeding gums but herpes can be

You cannot get pregnant from swallowing semen and healthy semen won't cause any kind of infection or other problem.

Some women don't like the taste and don't like swallowing because of that but that's personal preference. Do what you feel comfortable with. It's not mandatory to swallow semen but it's not going to do you any harm.

LazyGuy agony auntWell, there is the issue of Sexually Transmitted Diseases. If you don't know 100% certain he is clean, never allow any contact with sperm, especially with vulnerable places (where small wounds may easily occur that you never notice but break the seal of the skin, like your mouth). Use a condom.

If you are 100% certain he is clean of STD's or just like to dance with death, then swallowing doesn't add any extra risks. The sperm simply is handled the same way as anything else you swallow, it is digested. The sperms themselves quickly die in the acid in your stomach. Sperm is really just eggwhite and some assorted minerals, and perfectly harmless.

In fact, sperm is healthy if consumed regular... and no, this isn't a study by playboy, it actually happens to contain various stuffs that are good for you. Good news eh girls? (don't believe me, google for "health benefits swallowing sperm")

of course, if you want bad news, it is a protein rich substance, so it could make you fat... so, no more then 2000 calories per day of sperm (anyone know how many calories go in one "serving"?)

And no, to answer an old post. You can NOT get pregnant from swallowing.

And finally, some people are allergic to sperm (I would presume this only applies to women).

The worst that happens is you throw up because it can taste pretty.. interesting. I never threw up, but it's not something I'd like to swallow again... Have a bag next to you so you can spit it out if the taste becomes overwhelming. And have a soda or something next to you too so you can wash away the taste.
