HEAR THAT, guys???

I know that just by the headline, all of the ladies out there are getting ready to print this article out and leave it on their partner’s pillow. You totally should! Because this new view on oral sex might help you achieve a lot more orgasms.

If you know anything about the anatomy of the vagina, you should know by now that they are packed with GOOD bacteria. Billions of them. This ecosystem of vaginal bacteria is known as the vaginal microbiome and it works to fight off all of the icky stuff. It’s like the ghost busters of your vagina.

Seventy percent of vaginas are home to the dominating species, Lactobacillus, which produces lactic acid and keeps the pH level at 4.5.

While you might not be familiar with the word Lactobacillus, you are certainly well versed in what it does as it lives somewhere else in your body too: Your gut. This kind of bacteria is also known as probiotics. Yes, the kind that you get when you eat your morning yogurt or drink Kombucha.

Science is going crazy with probiotics, and as more research keeps showing how good they are for us, the marketplace is going crazy too. As they are shown to help with everything from allergies and eczema to digestion, probiotics are being infused into food, shampoos, and even shaving cream.

So, let’s take a moment to think about what this means. If the vagina is full of probiotics, doesn’t it make sense that eating a girl out would help give you your daily dose? Does this mean that oral sex is good for you?

"I think it would be possible, but probably unlikely," says Dr. Helena Mendes-Soares of the Mayo Clinic. "I don't know of any study that [has] addressed it."

For vaginal juices to be a good source of probiotics, they would need to have enough of the bacteria to make a drastic effect. According to Italy and Canada, this is determined by whether or not these juices would contain one billion colony-forming units per serving.

I wonder how many servings of probiotics you would get after a thirty-minute foreplay session? Also, the bacteria would have to get from your mouth to the lower intestine without stomach acid coming in and blasting it off into eternity.

According to Dr. Mendes-Soares, there are about 100,000 to 100 million of the bacteria cells per gram of vaginal fluid. So that would mean that for the person going down south, they would have to swallow between 10 and 10,000 grams of vaginal fluid. I wonder what the count is on average.

So, ladies, if your partner is in ANY way health conscious, this a great stat to pull out of your pocket as you pull your pants down!
