Q: What is the best way to go about tossing salad (e.g. preparation, lube) and what are the risks?
A: For those who don’t know, “tossing salad” is giving oral sex to a person’s anus (i.e., “mouth to ass”). There’s not much prep needed. You don’t need lube, because saliva provides plenty of lubrication. You just want to make sure the body is clean beforehand, such as right after taking a shower, so that the person “tossing the salad” doesn’t come into contact with any fecal matter. But, if the person receiving anal stimulation is showered and clean, there’s no risk at all.
