The Big Gulp: 10 People On The First Time They Swallowed

To celebrate the release of my new web series, The Big Gulp, which is about swallowing (hint: not water) I asked a vital question: “Do you remember the first time you swallowed?” People’s answers ranged from hilarious to surprisingly dark. You can see my story in the first episode, “Winter Is Coming”, below:

“The first time I swallowed I ran away from my boyfriend, spit it out in the sink, and took a swig chocolate syrup. He was a Christian. He wanted me to put the syrup on his dick. I wouldn’t. He currently lives in Denver with his boyfriend.” Lia, 25

“Swallowing is funny because it seems like there is such a premium on it, versus “spitting” which takes more skill anyways. The first time I swallowed I didn’t even know what I was doing, it just happened. Like, suddenly there was this rush of salty liquid in my mouth, no warning. It was cool, I think. It was nice that there was a very concrete end point because otherwise I would have had no idea when to be done, at that point.” Christine, 28

“Ok so I can’t remember the FIRST time I swallowed. but O can remember a series of times. honestly at this point I don’t even remember spitting ever. I think for me swallowing and sucking dick go hand in hand. spitting always seemed too messy, too much of a — the first words that came to mind were dick/pussy, I don’t know what that says about me BUT — seemed like too much of a dick move / a pussy move. i remember it being so fucking disgusting the first several times. Hell, it’s even kind of gross now. I’m madly in love with my boyfriend and I still kind of gag a bit at the end of a BJ. For me that’s the only option. The idea of spoiling the moment to run to the sink and spit? That doesn’t appeal to me. And nothing turns me on more than when I’m told how good i taste, so then I would assume to reason that a man feels the same. I think if I were a dude and a girl was always spitting out my splooge, my feelings would be hurt. Really, I’m just protecting everyone’s feelings. that’s what’s going on here.” Celeste, 27

“It was with my first boyfriend, who was emotionally abusive and extremely selfish. The first time I swallowed was not my choice and I had no warning. He wouldn’t kiss me afterwards and shortly asked me to leave.” Alex, 21

“The first time I swallowed jizz I threw it up 5 minutes later. It was disgusting. It was so horrible, I was like yeah man I can do this, I can totally swallow jizz. I was like 19, and it was a huge load too and I was like OH OK THEN and then it tasted so wrong, like off milk mixed with ball sweat and so I swallowed it… then I tried to remain suave and sexy… then my stomach was churning and I threw up gluggy hot semen and it was the most disgusting feeling rising up from my throat into my mouth.” Courtney, 25

“I had been going out with this guy for about a month and a half. I was on my period and really didn’t want to get his sheets messy but he kept saying he didn’t mind and that it was fine with him. But since we were still pretty new, I really wanted to wait before we got into the period sex thing so I decided to go down on him instead. While I was blowing him, he kept saying how good it was and that he was close – you know, the usual pep talk. So I was really into it and when he told me he was about to come I just kept going and let him come in my mouth. At that moment, spitting it out didn’t seem like an option so I went ahead and swallowed it. The weird thing is, couple of seconds after I had swallowed, he looked up and asked me if I swallowed it and I got nervous and said “yeah, some of it”. His response to that was “ohh okay, cuz we haven’t been going out for that long so I don’t think we’re there yet.” We went out for another month after that but I never swallowed his again.” Amy, 23

“The first time I ever did it was with my first semi serious boyfriend (I lost my virginity to him the night of my year 10 formal. How original). Anyways a few months before that he wanted me to give him head and I had only done it once before with one of my friends older brothers who told me after I had let him cum all over himself that in order to give great head you should swallow. So I took his advice and when my boyfriend said he was going to cum I said ok with a mouthful of cock. He said it was the best head he ever had so I was convinced that swallowing really was the key and I have done it every time since. Obviously I don’t still believe it is all about the swallow but it definitely helps Plus it always makes me feel superior to girls who refuse to.” Ashleigh, 26

“Nathan and I had planned to go to his student accommodation for a quick smoke then take the bus into town for a drink; a first date as it were. Three hefty joints later and the sound of Primal Scream ringing in my ear the sexual tension had grown unbearable between us; to the point where we had silences simply looking at each other with raised eyebrows waiting for something to happen. The atmosphere was not even stifled by the awful lighting and interiors which looked fresh out of One Flew Over the Cuckoos Nest. Finally he made the first move and my teenage instinct went into overdrive and I jumped on him, grinding him rigorously and tugging at his belt. One thing led to another and all of a sudden he was fucking my (almost) virgin mouth. I’d like to think I knew what I was doing; I just gave it dedication and effort which was increasingly difficult in my stoned state with my mouth becoming more and more dry, the viscosity of my saliva becoming more like treacle (sorry for the graphic imagery, I just don’t know how else to put it) but heck! I went for it, and after about 3 minutes of cock-sucking dedication his body tensed and a jet of salty come exploded into my mouth. Ugh, do I swallow it? Is there anywhere to spit? It’s on my hands, uh no, it’s on my dress too, oop and now it’s in my hair… and some in my eye. THIS SHIT GET’S EVERYWHERE. I thought I’d be kinky and lick it up though which really didn’t help my dry mouth. The fact that I walked home that evening with dried jizz on my nylon black dress just showed how much I didn’t give a fuck. When I told Nathan he just laughed and stroked his beard. Moral of the story; Giving blowjobs when high is CHALLENGING. Proceed with caution.” Bryony, 19

“First time I swallowed was the first blowjob I ever gave. I wanted to impress and thought it would be hot. Well, tasted like ass. At the time I didn’t know any better but I was seriously re-evaluating how “hot” I thought it was. That ex ate a lot of fast food and I later learned that was why it tasted so bad. Eat fruit! Once I “discovered” that trick future lovers got that and it got way better for me. Now, about 4 years later. I loooove it, it’s incredibly hot.” Geill, 22

“The first time I swallowed I was at a Westfield in the suburbs in the parking lot in an older guy’s car. I was fourteen and he must have been at least thirty–I organized the meeting on gaydar. Then I got out. And I got a Boost Juice. And found my parents. True story.” Craig, 22. Thought Catalog Logo Mark
