The actual truth behind ‘rainbow kisses’ and its real meaning

What is a rainbow kiss?

A rainbow kiss, in its simplest terms, involves performing oral s3x on a woman during her period. This act is accompanied by the woman returning the favour on her male partner and both of them swapping semen and blood in the form of a kiss in the end.

While some reports appear to suggest that a rainbow kiss is just about performing oral on a woman during her period – the actual meaning of a “rainbow kiss” goes beyond that.

So basically the man goes down on his menstruating woman and comes up with blood in his mouth. The woman, on the other hand, goes down on her man till he releases. With the man having bloodstains in his mouth and the woman semen stains, the two now share a kiss, mixing these bodily fluids.

It is this ultimate kiss that is referred to as a rainbow kiss.

Is rainbow kiss safe?

Most likely not. Doctors and health experts alike have warned that performing a rainbow kiss carries a considerable health risk.

How to perform rainbow kiss safely

A rainbow kiss is often described as a more extreme form of period s3x, which itself can be very risky.

However, some experts and sex therapists have stated that a rainbow can be a healthy activity for lovers and could play a positive role in tightening romantic bonds.

To have a safe rainbow kiss, it is crucial that you only engage in the act with a partner with whom you have carried out all the necessary testing for STDs, especially HIV, hepatitis and syphilis.

It is also important that both partners are comfortable with the exercise and willingly consent to it. Please do not pressurize your partner to do something they are not comfortable with.

Some people can not stand the sight of blood or are allergic to semen, so it is important to respect your partner’s boundaries.

Health risks of performing a rainbow kiss

According to a Nigerian doctor, Dr Harvey Olufunmilayo, engaging in a rainbow kiss carries the following medical risks:

  • Hepatitis A
  • Hepatitis B
  • Hepatitis C
  • Human Papillomavirus (HPV)
  • Herpes Simplex Virus (HSV)
  • HIV
  • Syphilis
  • Chlamydia
  • Diarrhea
  • Dysentery
  • Gonorrhea

And because HPV can cause throat/mouth cancers, performing a rainbow kiss also carries a minor risk for cancer. To perform rainbow kiss safely, be sure that you and your partner are fully tested.

In fact, reproductive health doctor, Heather Irobunda, MD, warns:

“If you are unsure of your partner’s STD status, you should not be sharing rainbow kisses.”

Be sure to also speak with your healthcare personnel about the associated risks of engaging in this act before ever trying it.
