Oral Sex: Oral sex is a very common and normal part of the human sexual experience. There is, in general, no health concerns from the act itself. There are, of course, the usual std worries, but oral sex alone does not cause any health concerns. The 'slimy' throat you document is also probably normal for you given how your salivary glands respond to this activity.

I always recommend that my patients get a guidebook or two to learn the 'how to's or norms of sexual activity. I like "The Joy of Sex" or "The Joy of Gay Sex" to start.

Throat Problem: This symptom you mention warrant s a exam by your medical doctor. You might have a growth, gastric reflux or possibly a polyp. How long you have had this will be a factor? Do you use your voice for singing or for sports shouting? Please see your doctor soon to rule out any pathology.
