Nuts4chic - The Altoids Mints/Blow Job Myth

I didn't have enough space in this article to mention that The Count chewed three Altoids mints and went down on me. The tingling sensation from the mints was very pleasant, made me feel very sensitive, and reduced me to giggles. It was fun tackling this sex myth.


The Altoids/Oral Sex Myth
Do It, Lizzie, Do It!
by Elizabeth Black

This is my first article in a series called "Do It, Lizzie, Do It!" I will test sex myths to see how accurate they are.

There are so many different sex myths to try out for fun. I decided to start with the Altoids breath mint/oral sex myth. The myth goes that chewing on a few Altoid breath mints makes blow jobs even more exciting.

I used peppermint Altoids. Peppermint Altoids have peppermint oil in it. I think it is the peppermint oil that enhances oral sex.

Snopes, the Urban Legends web site, was all over this myth. Here is the web site www.snopes.com/risque/aphrodisiacs/altoids.asp

The disappointing part of the Snopes page was that it did not go into any detail about the blowjob experience, except to say that there was "slight tingling or a momentary sensation of cold; that's it." I was determined to try that myth out myself on my partner, and report on the phenomenon in great detail.

My partner was happy to participate in a not-very-scientific experiment. We ran to our bed. He lay on his back. His body language said "ravish me."

I popped a fistful of Altoids into my mouth. I wasn't sure how many to eat. I ate enough so that I could give him a "curiously strong" blowjob.

I took his balls in my hand, and ran them over my fingers, one, and then the other. He squirmed and moaned with pleasure. I then took his cock into my Altoids-fresh mouth.

The effect started off slowly. He felt a little bit of tingling at first. It was pleasant, if a bit unusual. Then, the sensation became more intense, especially as I sucked harder on his dick. He is not circumsized, so I sucked on his foreskin until I pulled it away from his dick. He liked that. It felt very good.

He started to squirm. All of a sudden, his dick began to burn. He cried out, "It burns, Oh, my God, it really burns!"

I wasn't sure whether to stop or to keep going. He wanted me to keep going. I sucked, harder and harder.

"My God, it burns. A lot. How many Altoids did you eat?"

"Uh... Fifteen."


"I didn't know how many to eat. I wanted to make sure it worked. Maybe I shouldn't have eaten so many of them…"

"You think so? Maybe three would have done it just fine. Ouch! It burns!! My dick is on fire!!!"

I released his dick from my mouth. He rolled out of bed, and ran to the bathroom. I heard the water in the sink running. He kept crying out "it burns! It burns!" I felt bad, but at the same time the whole thing was rather funny. I told him to use soap on it. Maybe soap would get the peppermint oil off of his dick. He just ran warm water over it.

He came back to bed. The burning sensation had subsided. I sucked on him a bit longer, to make him feel better. The tingling sensation was still in my mouth, but the peppermint oil had been absorbed into my mouth as well. His dick felt cool when I blew on it, but thankfully he didn't feel as if his dick was on fire anymore.

So, there is quite a bit of truth to the Altoids myth. I highly recommend trying the Altoids Blow Job so that you too can become a Blowjob Goddess. However, don't eat fifteen Altoids mints. You'll torture your lover. Three or four are just fine.

LOL, Lizzie. Your poor hubby. I had a similar fiasco though I didn't mean to do it. I went down on my guy after I'd just gargled with Listerine...not a happy day in the Jacks household. I can tell you something gentle like a honey-eucalyptus cough drop does the trick. Just make sure you eat only one and then give it a few minutes so there's just a residue in your mouth. Good luck on your next experiment. Wonerful blog topic!

Oh, boy, I bet Listerine left a memory. LOL! That must have burned. I've never tried a honey-eucalyptus cough drop. I do suck on them when my throat is sore, so I'll have to try that out.

Never use the cinnamon. The burning is like no other

Never use the cinnamon. The burning was compared to the gas chamber when he was in the military
