Blowing Air Into Vagina

I have a rather odd question here. My boyfriend thinks it's funny to blow air into my vagina while giving me oral. What I'm wondering is, Are there any possible dangers in doing this? When I say blowing air, I'm not talking about any real force...mainly like he'll blow a raspberry on my mound and get the idea that it would be cute to do the same to my vagina. I've only let him do it once because I think it may cause possible harm, but I wanted your opinions.

Blowing air directly into the vagina can cause an air embolism. It is rare, but it's serious enough (potentially deadly) that this practice is pretty much universally discouraged. Vulva, fine; vagina, major no.

Ah good. I was going to reply the second I saw this post, but I couldn't remember 1) what it was called and 2) if I was remembering correctly.

While embolism is a risk, it would take a large amount of air and force to create/cause one. I think the OP's risk of developing one from this practice is extremely small.

this made me think of the fact that my boy(thing) think its a RIOT to form a seal & blow air up my nose. its the most uncomfy feeling ever! so the thought of that feeling transfered to my nether regions makes me squirm a little lot.

Aghhhhh, my boy does that on my mouth!! It's terrible D:

It is a riot though, lol. Just cause I try to figure out when he's going to do it so I refuse to open my mouth, or if I *do* open my mouth it's only to push air back at him. lololol.

I had no idea that the nose thing was so common! My boyfriend does it too!

the only thing i don't get is that if it's so NOT ok to do this - what is the deal with queefing and having air forced up your vagina during sex? Could this possibly cause an embolism too??

yeah, I don't get that either.

Emboli require a seal and a fair amount of forced air, like if your partner was trying to blow your uterus up like a balloon and keep it inflated. Queefs don't have a sufficient positive air pressure. The very fact the air is squeaking out is proof of that.

To the OP, if your guy is giving razzberries on your clitoris, but not to the vaginal opening, you're fine (as long as you're fine with it, that is).
