Does saliva really kill sperm?


Does saliva really kill sperm??

How have I not heard this before??

So literally, oral sex before bd'ing is a no no?

Has anyone gotten pregnant after oral sex and then bd'ing?? Surely saliva isnt that potent...is it???

It does, I think if your using Saliva as lubercant it can kill sperm. Unless your hubbs is spitting in there i wouldnt think it would get in there to hurt the sperm. If your doing it to him just wipe his member off before bd'ing :-)

I seriously doubt it would. I mean seriously, it's saliva. It's not freakin' acid or spermicide lol... I do not know where people come up with this stuff.

It's science! There are enzymes in saliva that are harmful to sperm. Also, sperm need a certain pH level to survive and saliva interferes with that. Even water can cause osmotic shock.

Ladies, can any of you provide research or evidence regarding whether or not it is harmful? I've been looking on the US National Library of Medicine/National Institutes of Health website and cannot find any studies regarding this topic, and I'd hate for all of us to assume something that could potentially be or not be true.
