Ask Dr. K
IS SWALLOWING URINE SAFE?

QUESTION
My bf has been swallowing my urine. It really turns him on. Is this safe for him? I am HIV and STD free. Thanks.

ANSWER
Water sports, including swallowing urine, can be a erotic and fun sexual activity for some people. Normal urine is sterile and contains no germs. Water sports are safe if the person urinating has no chronic infections. Urine can carry Hepatitis A and B; however, and hepatitis could be spread that way. On the other hand, there have been no documented cases of someone getting HIV from urine. In any case, make sure you continue to get tested for all STDs regularly if you're sexually active.

To your health,
Dr. K
