Risks of having sex with animals

Health Lifestyle
The news of a lady having sex with a dog hit the trends for some days now leaving people wondering why someone would engage in such act.
Some are of the opinion that they do it for pornographic content, others think it is some form of money ritual, and for the rest, it is recreational.
However, findings that such act is also known as bestiality. People who are into bestiality like having sex with animals.
Animals can carry harmful germs such as bacteria, fungi, parasites and viruses. These are then shared with humans and cause illness.
For whatever reason it is done, having sex with animals is a taboo in Nigeria and it has far-reaching health consequences such as;
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 per cent of the time, meningitis is deadly.
