WEAL SEX – February 16, 2012
Dear Weal Sex;
My boyfriend and I have been talking about fetishes. He told me about one where he wants to drink beer from my vagina. Can I get some sort of infection from that? I am just really freaked out by this.
-Scared and confused
Dear Scared and Confused;
A: Now I am not a doctor, but considering one of beer’s main ingredients is yeast, I would strongly suggest avoiding your boyfriend’s request. Granting him this fantasy most likely will tamper with the delicate balance of yeast your vagina requires. I see this ending badly with a wicked yeast infection. If you decide to ignore my advice, just remember that a yeast infection can be passed back and forth between partners, and symptoms are rarely present in males.
J: I’m not afraid of a little kink, in fact I’m not afraid of a lot of kink, but this is a little too much kink for me. Now I’m not one to judge any kink from a partner, as I’m flattered if they feel confident enough to actually discuss their fetishes with me in the first place, which can be a touchy subject for most—so kudos to you as a couple for being open about such things, as it is not something people necessarily want to talk about as a fear they may be judged—hence the word, taboo.
Do you remember when Miranda found the spanking video in her boyfriend’s drawer on Sex and the City? He was not prepared to be confronted about that.
Additionally, I think with any sort of fetish, try not to act freaked out about his fetishes, as you don’t want him to close off any future things or make him uncomfortable—worst case scenario.
I think with any fetish, I’d be curious to find out what spawned this fascination, and what he may get out of it, and lastly, if you’re not comfortable with it, think of a compromise or alternative. If you’re down for trying it, I’d perhaps consult a professional about possible health issues about beer entering your body somewhere other than your mouth. Food and sex has been around for ages, but I’d make for damn certain that you’ll be okay before doing anything like this.
