A rainbow kiss is a kiss between a woman and her partner. This type of kiss is between a menstruating woman and her partner. Generally happening after the 69 position, in which a male ejaculates in the woman’s mouth, the kiss mixes menstrual blood with semen to create a rainbow kiss.
Now, this may sound crazy. But it is just an example of one of the unorthodox things couples tend to do when enhancing their sexual pleasure through doing taboo practices.
So, is rainbow kissing safe? How is it performed exactly? Let us answer these questions now.
How Is a Rainbow Kiss Performed
Rainbow kisses are performed in the 69 position usually when there is menstrual blood on the vagina. One person licks blood off of the menstruating woman’s vagina while also receiving oral sex from the menstruating woman.
This is one of the bold variations of the 69 position because it is something that most people would consider taboo. However, people who have certain kinks would find this type of oral sex arousing because of how unorthodox it is.
History of the 69 Position
The concept of mutual oral-genital stimulation, i.e., “69,” was made popular by the sex manual The Joy of Sex (1972). This manual claimed that it was a position favored by young couples in swinging London for its convenience. Although this claim is disputed, there is no doubt that the practice has gained popularity over time.
In their book, The Guide to Getting It On! (chap. 17), Paul Joannides and Andrew Holleran report a survey conducted in 1997 found that about 70% of gay male respondents said they enjoyed 69, as compared with nearly 90% who reported enjoying kissing.
Like any good sexual practice, 69ing has been the source of much controversy and debate.
Why Do Couples Try Rainbow Kisses?
Rainbow Kisses are a part of the recent trend to celebrate sexuality in all its beauty and diversity. The practice is an alternative, safe way for two people to express affection for each other sensually. It is a form of intimacy that fosters connection. Doing this also allows partners to get close, even if they have only just met. Many couples enjoy rainbow kisses as a different kind of experience that can also be an expression of love.
Rainbow kissing is not widely known outside certain communities. So it’s not something you should do in public places like parks or shopping centers. Your parents may be unfamiliar with this concept. In fact, they might freak out about the symbolism behind the colors being used in the middle of foreplay.
Is a Rainbow Kiss Safe?
The safety of rainbow kissing all depends on whether you know your partner well enough. If the girl whose menstrual blood is involved in the kiss is your long-time partner, it may be safe because you are more aware of that person’s hygienic practices and whether or not that person has any underlying diseases that can be transmitted through blood.
If you are having casual sex with someone, however, rainbow kissing may not be the safest thing to practice. You cannot fully trust how healthy your sex partner is. Blood can transmit various diseases, including Ebola, HIV, hepatitis C, hepatitis B, and many more. Yet when you visit the doctor for any reason and get blood work done to check your cholesterol or any other markers related to health, you are usually faced with some anxiety about what the results will show.
If you insist on having this type of sex with people on a casual basis, it is important that you get yourself tested. That way, you are able to provide proof that you are not carrying any potential diseases — that is if the person is on the receiving end. If you are on the receiving end, it would not be the best idea to engage in the act.
Reasons Behind Taboo Romance
Couples tend to have a preference for taboo romance when it comes to their sexual fantasies. They fantasize about things like being seduced by a parent, teacher, co-worker, or boss. Many people want to experience the forbidden fruit with someone to who they are attracted to but may not be able to express that attraction in real life for various reasons.
In some cases, we try to fulfill these taboo fantasies through porn watching and masturbation. But it is hard to beat the real thing so more often than not we simply keep our secret desires as fantasies instead of acting on them because of ‘social pressure’ from those surrounding us.
We learn what feels good through experience and experimentation during our youth without really knowing why it feels good at first so the need to keep adding new experiences throughout our lives.
Hopefully, you will become more aware before trying rainbow kissing — if you are truly keen on the idea and your partner is someone that you have known for a long time, it is something that may be ok to try. Of course, as awkward as it may be, try to consult your physician before trying.
If you’re feeling adventurous, you might want to try something different with your partner. You could try giving him a blow job or letting her give you one. You could also experiment with anal play.
You Can Protect Yourself Against STDs By Doing Your Research
Although many people think that having an STD is inevitable, there are ways that you can reduce your chances of getting infected. For example, you can use condoms every time you engage in sexual activity. Also, make sure that you don’t have any cuts or abrasions on your genitals because those areas are prone to bacterial growth.
As always, please consult with your doctor before trying anything new.
