A Trick For Suppressing Your Gag Reflex?


Ok, this is a bit weird, and it’s very late at night, very early in the morning, so I want to see if I’m crazy. Alexa over at The Real Princess Diaries talked about a very odd way to suppress your gag reflex.  You know, to deep throat…or maybe not get upset at the dentist or doctor, I don’t want to assume.

So, here’s the trick, and I specifically want to see if it works for you guys.

Step 1: Put your left thumb against your palm, wrap your fingers around it.  You should now have a fist with your thumb in the middle.

Step 2:  There is no step 2.

Seriously, that’s it.   And maybe it’s late night hokum, or the power of suggestion, but I can touch my uvula.  Yeah, weird, creepy, unnatural.

But maybe, just maybe, there’s some neural pathway allowing this to happen.  So, give it a try.  Very curious if it works for you!  Please let us know in the comments section!

  1. Oh my! This is not just a trick, my friends, this is sheer freakin’ brilliance! I’ve, ahem, had a slight issue with my gag-reflex (that once used to be non-existent) and this technique makes it go *POOF* into oblivion!

    A must-try for all gals and guys and swingers looking to expand their oral repertoires and capacities. 😉

    Thank you so much for sharing this, Cooper, and spreadin’ the luv.

  2. Taught this little gem to my wife (who's been practicing deep throating quite a lot lately) and it certainly helps a lot. While I can't say the trick itself is a cure-all (again, she's been practicing) she was certainly able to go deeper and harder with noticeable ease.
