I read that while giving oral sex, if you blow into a vagina or penis, or have sex too hard, you can blow air into the bloodstream and give someone an embolism and kill them. Sounds fake to me...but is this possible?

I guess anything is possible but I don't think the genital mucous membranes are that gas permeable.

I think if you blew really really really hard, you could rupture something, but I doubt this would translate to air in the bloodstream. AFAIK, the only way to get that result is to puncture a vein/artery and blow air directly in there, not simply blowing in a general direction and hoping it finds its way through a pre-existing wound.

ISTR reading in textbook that if you blow directly into a vagina, you can cause vaginitis/vaginosis. (It's been a long time since I read it.)

Surprisingly yes its it true but very rare, and statistics are hard to come by.
The precursors are; 1. Blood vessels in the vagina or uterus have to be engorged, usually through pregnancy or just after giving birth. 2. The vulva/vagina has to be completely sealed so that no air can escape 3. Air has to be blown in hard.
I certainly doubt that this can be done in the course of casual oral sex though, unless you are into the 'da kinky stuff' and I'm guessing blowing into the vagina would be pretty uncomfortable, let alone just after giving birth. Im sure the guy would take a quick belt to the left ear in any case.
These links are the better ones for not going overboard and make you feel like you need to have sex in a vaccuum. My Pleasure

Uh, if you're blowing into the vagina...you're doing it wrong
That does remind me of a story I heard from a friend who, in high school, had to instruct his girlfriend that a blow job does not actually involve blowing.

Usually an embolism is a blood clot that "breaks off" into the blood stream.
Sometimes they can be caused by air bubbles, but it is really rare.
Posted by Troberg on :
While compressed air can get into the blood stream and pose a danger, it usually take much higher pressure. Compressed air is considered one of the most dangerous tools in a workshop, but I seriously doubt anyone would stick that in any orifice. I seriously doubt lung power will be enough.
Also, the risk of small air bubbles is to a large extent a myth. The once so omnipresent "making sure there is no air in the syringe before giving an injection by squirting out some of the contents" has in most cases given way to a visual inspection where a small amount of air is accepted.

I read about this in Chuck Palahniuk's book, Lullaby

I have had several bfs who like to blow gently on the skin, so I could someone thinking blowing on the vagina or penis might be nice, even if they knew oral sex didn't involve actual blowing. (Personally, I don't think it would be, but...)
I actually read about this phenomena in a Dave Barry book of all places, the one he wrote about computers in the late '90s.
