This article is for cock lovers worldwide. The kings and queens of oral sex, pleasure, sugar and spice.
We are rooting so hard for you to be the most comfortable whilst giving a blowjob, that we’ve decided to write an entire piece on how to get rid of a dry mouth during oral sex.
Now, you can lick, suck, spit, or swallow until your little heart's content. But first, why the heck do you get a dry mouth during this fun activity anyway?
What Causes a Dry Mouth During Oral Sex?
Well, there are a number of things that can cause you to be as dry as a desert.
For example, some medications may have anticholinergic side effects, which is when the production of acetylcholine is blocked. Acetylcholine is a molecule that sends signals to the brain pertaining to the salivary glands (and other muscles and glands).
Not to worry, here are five sneaky ways to get wet and wild…
How to Curb Your Dry Mouth During Oral Sex
You could try one or more of these nifty techniques:
When you chew on gum, you'll not only have a minty fresh breath, but the gum itself helps to stimulate the salivary glands. In fact, you can expect up to 10 times the normal rate of saliva production when you chew gum.
Granted, it’s not for everyone. But! If you take two shots of pickle juice, you’ll be stimulating those salivary glands and giving yourself an adequate amount of hydration. Fun fact! Eating pickles or other fermented food causes an increase in serotonin (i.e. puts us in a good mood).
Right, so it’s not the most thrilling solution, but it does work. When you deep throat, it sends the same signals to the brain as if we were choking. This, in turn, creates an influx of saliva production to help prevent the choking.
If you’re not all that comfortable with downing shots of pickle juice, you could also get a helping hand from our good friend, lube. By choosing a water-based lube, you can pull a ton of tricks without having to worry about a dry mouth!
If things are getting too uncomfortable ‘down there’ there’s nothing wrong with changing positions. Maybe if you’ve gotten to the point where you’re totally tapped out, perhaps it’s time for your partner to give you a bit of love? Or you could switch things up by introducing a sex toy into the mix!
Long Term Solutions to Cure a Dry Mouth
Not necessarily a quick fix, but could still aid in better saliva production!
When we drink water, it loosens mucus and keeps our mouth nice and moist. Having a bottle/cup of water nearby during the day, and next to your bed at night, can help reduce the effects of a dry mouth.
We don’t want to be party poopers, but alcohol does have the ability to cause dehydration which, in turn, leads to a dry mouth. But if you don’t fancy giving up the sauce, you can also opt to use products that don’t contain alcohol or peroxide, like some brands of mouthwash.
Add a Humidifier
By having a humidifier on at night, you can increase the humidity in your home which will help keep your internal passages moist.
Of course, you won’t be able to buy medication for a dry mouth just because you want to give sloppy blowjobs. But, if you do find that you have a persistent dry mouth, there are medications that can help, like Pilocarpine or Cevimeline.
An Apple a Day
When you eat foods that are abrasive and rich in fibre, like apples, you can sweep some bacteria and plaque off the teeth. Plaque is a big player in causing a dry mouth. An apple a day may keep the doctor away, but it certainly won’t stop you from giving some seriously tasty oral sex!
