If you suck on her nose, maybe.

Mr. M – I’m not a rhinophile.

Francis – why?

Mr_M's avatar

@strat, doesn’t that mean you like sex with young Rhinos? I never even suggested that.

Well it really all depends.

The common cold is usually spread by direct hand-to-hand contact with infected secretions or from contaminated surfaces. For example, if a person with a cold blows or touches their nose and then touches someone else, that person can subsequently become infected with the virus. Additionally, a cold virus can live on objects such as pens, books, telephones, computer keyboards, and coffee cups for several hours and can thus be acquired from contact with these objects.

So basically, it all depends.

Have someone ELSE perform oral sex on your wife. If they don’t come down with anything, you’ll know it’s alright.

I imagine your wife will be cold towards you, if you don’t perform oral sex on her, regularly.

Always remember that a “practicing heterosexual” is someone who hasn’t perfected it, yet.

Either that, or they’re Irish, which would explain the O’Sexual part.

There’s this Irish dude who sits in my backyard all summer long, right next to my swimming pool.

His name is Paddy O’Furniture.

But seriously, folks…

Mr_M – you are too funny. I really can’t read your stuff while drinking coffee – my monitor gets all messy.

The late Redd Foxx used to tell this story (which is related to your Q) about the time he went to the doctor, not feeling well.

He told his doctor, “I think I might have a cold, because of this constant dripping, from my penis.”

After examining him, his doctor said, “Well, let’s call it ‘the clap,’ until it sneezes.”

I nominate this question as the best question ever asked on Fluther.

Would she be sneezing and blowing her nose while you are doing the deal?
