ABSTRACT Oral sex is recently becoming a general sexual behavior among the youths in this country. Oral sex is often performed without a condom because they do not have to worry about pregnancy in oral sex. Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae which are sexually transmitted diseases are infected with not only the genital tract but also the pharynx. Oral sex attracts attention as a new route of infection of Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae. It is very imoportant that gential Chlamydia and gonococcal infections should be detected early and treated to protect from re-infection, because these infections are causes of infertility. If Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae are detected from a genital tract in a youth, pharyngeal Chlamydia trachomatis and Neisseria gonorrhoeae examinations should be performed.
