The Danger Of Having Sex With Animal (Dog)

News of girls in lekki, Nigeria allegedly engaging in sexual activities with dogs was met with disgust. 

Commonly referred to as bestiality, the act, according to medical experts, is harmful, but cannot result to pregnancy.

Wachira Murage, a doctor based at Savannah Healthcare, says naturally, fertilisation of gametes (sex cells) only occurs between a male and a female of the same species. Hence a dog’s sperm cannot fertilise a human’s egg. This means fantasy seekers with animals cannot get pregnant. 

But can one contract a Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD)?

Murage says possibilities of STDs are low considering that the diseases are ‘species specific’. Nonetheless, he warns that the likelihood of diseases transmission from an animal to a human through copulation is high.

He argues that zoonoses – infections that are transmitted from animals to humans – may be transferred through casual contact. A common infection is Brucellosis, which can be contracted from exposure to animals’ semen, vaginal fluids, urine, saliva, feces and blood.

Other infections include;

1. Rabies
Rabies is a viral disease from dogs that is fatal in humans. It is transmitted from the saliva of dogs, horses and cats. Immediately after the symptoms set in, the human has little chance of survival if not treated.

2. Echinococcosis
This is a parasitic tapeworm found in the faeces of dogs, cats and sheep. This disease is asymptomatic and would not manifest until after a few years. These worms would cause cysts to develop in the kidneys, heart, spleens and brains of the person so affected. If not treated, it can lead to death.

3. Injury
The reproductive organs of these animals are not made to fit into that of a woman or man and have caused a lot of injuries, some men have had ruptured rectum from sex with pigs and others have experienced head injuries from sex with horses.

The reproductive organ of an aroused dog is like a light bulb, and that would injure a vagina. Let's not even imagine the size of a horse's reproductive organ. It can cause serious tears and injuries.

4. Allergic reaction
Receiving the semen of a dog or horse can trigger allergic reactions because it is a foreign substance the body tries to expel.

Imagine a person with a peanut allergy eating peanuts, and not getting treated immediately. A woman in Ireland who had sex with a dog died from anaphylaxis.

According to Mayo Clinic, "Anaphylaxis causes the immune system to release a flood of chemicals that can cause you to go into shock — blood pressure drops suddenly and the airways narrow, blocking breathing. Signs and symptoms include a rapid, weak pulse; a skin rash; and nausea and vomiting."

5. Leptospirosis
This disease is gotten from the urine of animals like dogs and cats. When it is in the human system, it can lead to meningitis, and 10% of the time, meningitis is deadly.

Apart from the fact that it is a crime against nature and an actual crime, bestiality can be fatal and deadly.
