Sex, Myths and Reality. Part 3

A kiss is just a kiss - or is it?

One of the most romantic and affectionate expressions of love between two people is a kiss. It is the seal of love. Yet, it can carry many dangers, with all its innocence, good intentions and warm feelings. At one time or another during our life time, chances are that every pathogenic (disease causing) organisms that exist in our planet will travel in our mouths.

Why don’t we all get sick then? Well, the Great Architect of the Universe provided us with an immune system, is that simple. So it is imperative to keep your body healthy, through proper nutrition, good water, good hygiene habits, don’t smoke tobacco, stay away from beverages with a high alcohol content (one or two glasses of red wine at your meals are healthy, provided you don’t suffer from gout or your doctor tells you not to do it) have a positive attitude (be happy!!! opportunistic agents love to see you down, it is when they attack you), exercises, good sleeping habits and a life of moderation.

I am convinced that pollution, the animal feed they are using (hormones, antibiotics, alien food preservatives only God knows what they put in our food these days), stress, over use of antibiotics and overall unhealthy life style, is what make us sick and eventually is killing us. That is why our ancestors would live close to 100 years and beyond and nowadays we see so many people dying young from illnesses that the doctors don’t even know what it is. Our great- grandparents, if they did not die when they were kids, they would live a long life.

The over use of antibiotics ended up becoming a serious issue. Nowadays it came to a point where some doctors are using colloidal nano silver (silver is known to be an excellent bactericidal since medieval times) douches to treat vaginal fungus infection, so common in ladies -it is NOT an STD- simply because antibiotics are not working anymore. Men are been treated with silver rods inserted in their urethra. Not very comfortable.

Never do self medication!!! the neighbor, your best friend, your old auntie, even your mom could have the best intentions at heart, but if you feel ill, consult your doctor!!! My baby sister died with a devastating septicemia in 48 hours, because she did self-medication. To this day I cry missing her. She was an athlete, very healthy, but an ordinary organism that dwells in the intestine, Proteus vulgaris, got in her blood stream via the kidneys and she was gone at just 30 years old leaving two small children behind. It was one of the greatest shocks of my life.

Perhaps Lister, that taught doctors to wash their hands before performing a surgery, Fleming (which observed that colonies of Staphylococcus aureus would be destroyed in the presence of the mold Penicillium notatum and gave us the Penicillin which saved so many lives), Jansen and Van Leeuwenhoek that introduced the microscope to the medicine arsenal would figure in any list of the top 10 people that contributed to major advancements in Medicine.

But viruses and bacteria have been around for zillions of years and will be here long after we are all gone. So, still the best medicine is prevention. There are entities out there that are resistant to anything the doctors throw at them these days and some old enemies (even Syphilis) that were all but gone are making a come back with a vengeance.

So, let us go back to the oral cavity a.k.a. the mouth.

Can you get an STD (sexually transmitted disease) through a kiss? The answer is a categorically YES. It is rare, but it is possible. If one of the partners have a STD (Chlamydia, HPV, Gonorrhea etc), sometimes even asymptomatic, and the other has an open sore, there you go. People are 10 times more at risk if they perform oral or anal sex. So refrain to have hot “French kisses” with that sex Goddess that you just met in a bar or ladies, refrain to give a hot kiss in Mr. Handsome that you just met, had few drinks with and feel hot about him. Get to know the person first. Just observe if he/she has “cold sores” like in his/her lips. This harmless looking sores could be Herpes virus Simplex I. Till you feel safe, bow like some Asians do or rub noses like the inuits (eskimos) ha ha. Avoid hand shakes too. I observed that in ALL the cities I visited, in ALL countries, in fancy hotels washrooms and even hospitals, most men do not wash their hands after peeing and even having a bowel movement, just disgusting. I don’t know about ladies, if I enter a ladies rest room they will call security or the cops. Ha ha.

Let us not get paranoid over this though. A friend of mine told me that always in his first night with a new GF he would inspect the girl panties looking for discharges and would observe unusual redness in her Bartholin’s glands area (these glands are in both sides of the opening of the vagina and produce a fluid that helps to lubricate the vagina). Excessive redness and/or swollen glands would suggest inflammation, this is one of the classical signs of Celsius.

I asked him, are you engaging into intercourse or doing a gynecological exam? I suggested that he should look for help and advice from a shrink.

However, ladies and gentlemen, lassies and lads, a bit of caution is a must and should always be in place. Always keep in mind that when you sleep with or kiss a person, you sleep with and kiss ALL his/hers former partners.

Mononucleosis, herpes and hepatitis are among the diseases that can come along with those seconds of kissing unknown lips. So much for promiscuity. Therefore, attention to the choice of who to kiss is the key. A basic step to prevention is the visual inspection. If the person chosen for the kiss exhibits a sore mouth, it is not worth it, it may be herpes as I said. These sores are blisters that appear on the lips. But it gets even worse, they are not always present, although the virus is harbored in the body of the sick person for life. There is no cure for herpes.

Herpes usually manifests when the body's immunity is low or in cases of stress. So it is worth keeping an eye.

In the case of mononucleosis, which is sometimes confused with a cold, saliva is the transmission medium. Symptoms are fever, sore throat, lumps in the neck and tiredness. The virus is in your body and when you are weakened by sleepless nights and poor diet, it has the ideal environment to them to settle. The treatment can last up to three weeks. For diagnosis, the doctor will ask the laboratory tests that identify the virus EBV antibody, it is common for the disease to be confused with others.

Hepatitis B is transmitted via unprotected sexual contact and may be transmitted by contaminated blood, where two kissing birds kiss passionately like there is no tomorrow, after some drinks in a bar for example, with one having a wound in the mouth the other being a carrier of the virus.

These do not fall into the classical STD definition but are diseases nevertheless.

I will re-visit this subject if you guys want me to and tell a story or two and also tell you what I personally do about my oral hygiene, but do not take my words at heart, consult YOUR doctor, your dentist or a trained and experienced dental hygienist. There are different schools. You can get good results using different techniques, follow the advice of the professionals you trust and follow his/her teachings ipsis litteris (literally). What is really important is compliance, to follow by the book a well proven technique.

Jusqu’a a la prochaine fois mes amis (till next time, my friends).

Have a healthy life ...

I have always wondered why we are not encouraged to wash our hands BEFORE using the toilet. After all, our hands have touched a thousand questionable surfaces including the restroom door handle before coming into contact with our genitals which have contacted nothing but clean underwear since being washed that morning.

@bmccull - actually, having just read your admission over in the forum that you've been mating with a horse lately, I have to question that your genitals have "contacted nothing but clean underwear". Until you get that horse out of your life I encourage you to wash your hands both before AND after using the toilet.

@bmccull You made an excellent point indeed a very timely and valid observation. You are a health conscious person, good for you and for those who associate themselves with you. More than ever we have to keep our body healthy to avoid ANY hospital in ANY city ANYWHERE in our planet. The "resident" entities in hospitals are really tough, you need a flame thrower or a bazooka to put them down ha ha ha ha. They should make a movie about this, would be realistic and really scary, not a fantasy like "Resident Evil". I was never afraid of the dead, we should be afraid of the living. It is a jungle out there bmccull. Thanks for reading the article.
