According to Dr Kolade Johnson, A medical expert, using saliva as a lubricant during sex is not only unhygienic but also untold diseases and infections.
Johnson, said that when someone with a mouth sore uses saliva as a sex lubricant, the partner would be exposed to genital herpes.
He also mentioned several diseases that may arise from saliva as a sex lubricant, Human Papilo Virus, Syphilis, Chlamydia, and even Gonorrhea, to mentioned the few.
The medical consultant using saliva might experience the worse effect for women as it may cause vaginal or yeast infections.
“Saliva cannot even be as slippery as expected which can easily cause tears because it gets dried up easily.
“Also, if the person has bad breath it can cause horrible smelling discharge.
“So, the best thing is to engage in foreplay to get wet before the real action.
“But if that is not attainable, get a lubricant in registered pharmacies and not popular chemists around or people hawking drugs,” Johnson said.
