Drinking Urine: In some cultures and in some sexual preferences urine is used in a variety of ways, including drinking. There is no known health reason to Prohibit this practice in limited sexual situations.

While normal, healthy urine doesn't contain germs, some people do have infections that can be spread through the urine. Everything in moderation... the girlfriend's urine contains water plus chemical waste products that her body is getting rid of, so taking in too much of another person's chemical waste is not such a good idea.

I agree with Dr. Kwok. Must recommend against drinking urine. It can cause dehydration through sodium and minerals in the urine. Germs can also be spread through ingestion of another's urine.

I appreciate the comments here. I often am reminded however that medicine does get a reputation sometimes when we 'seem' surprised that people find pleasure in sexual play that includes urine. There is, in reality, very little to be worried about medically from urine ingested during sexual play. I have yet to see anyone with disease who participates in this activity.

It is best to find: Sexual excitement through other avenues. Recommend against drinking urine. It can cause dehydration through sodium ; minerals in the urine. Any bacteria in the urethra can contaminate the urine. Additionally, breakdown products or elements of medications may be excreted in the urine. Under no circumstances should you drink another individual’s urine.
