Rare mouth diseases
It’s official now: Joe Theismann can boast the most nauseating injury in professional football.
No, not the career-ending fracture of his leg under the bulk of New York Giant Lawrence Taylor in 1985. Not the two front teeth knocked out in a 1982 game. No, we speak of the time the veteran Redskins quarterback got hoof-and-mouth disease.
Well, maybe not hoof-and-mouth disease. But something incredibly gross, anyway.
We’ve been cringing ever since the 1983 Super Bowl winner first shared the story Friday on our colleague Mike Wise’s 106.7 radio show: He was playing a game in 1971 in Montreal with the Canadian Football League, in a stadium that had hosted a cattle show the day before. One thing leads to another — dirt gets in his mouth, and the next day, “all of a sudden, if I drank a glass of water it was like drinking a ball of fire.” (Read a longer account of the story at Dan Steinberg’s Sports Bog.)

The diagnosis is a little vague: Theismann told us Tuesday the dentist told him he had hoof-and-mouth disease or trench mouth. Which turn out to be two different things.
“Theoretically it’s possible” that Theismann had hoof-and-mouth, said Paul Roepe, director of the infectious disease program at Georgetown. “But it’s extremely rare.”
Hoof-and-mouth is a viral ailment, sometimes fatal, that mostly strikes livestock. It’s distantly related to the hand-foot-and-mouth disease that strikes children. You get it from inhaling, though. Whereas trench mouth is a nasty bacterial infection — and yes, you can get it from dirt.
“You basically get it by not taking care of your mouth very well, ” Roepe told us.
Of course, there’s a reason this story is coming out now: Theismann, 61, recently signed on as pitchman for Defense Sport Mouthguard Rinse. He told us he takes endorsement deals only with products whose purpose he can relate to — and when he was offered this one, he immediately flashed back to the day he could have used some disinfecting.
“The importance of wearing a mouth guard, and the importance of having it clean — that's what got me excited about it, ” he said. (He wasn’t wearing a mouth guard that day in Montreal.) But do not fear, general public: You cannot catch whatever-it-was from Joe Theismann. “I’ve had no recurrence of it since then, ” he said.

Ass to mouth is a colloquial term, in sexology and pornography, for the removal of the penis or another object from the passive partner's anus followed by the immediate insertion of the penis or object into the passive partner, or another partner's mouth. It is also known as A2M or ATM or Arse to Mouth. Ass to mouth generally excludes cleaning the penis or other object after its removal from the anus but before its imposition in the mouth.
Due to the presence of bacteria in the anus, ass to mouth is inherently risky from a health standpoint. This practice is very dangerous for several reasons and is not recommended

Health risks and prevention
There are many health problems that can result from practising unsafe rimming, because of the presence of bacteria, viruses or parasites on or in the anus or rectum. These include Hepatitis A, HPV, Hepatitis C, intestinal parasites, chlamydia, human papillomavirus (HPV), gonorrhea, herpes, and other sexually transmitted diseases. Applying the mouth to the genitals immediately after applying it to the anus can inadvertently introduce the bacterium Escherichia coli ("E. coli") into the urethra, causing a urinary tract infection. HIV/AIDS is not believed to be easily transmitted through rimming, but experts assert that there is a risk of acquiring HIV from rimming
