(DEBATE) Can oral sex cause oral thrush?

I'm locked into a debate with a co-worker of mine who insists that a man can get yeast infection from cunnilingus.

Is this really possible? Wouldn't his tongue or mouth have to come in contact with the vaginal opening to get oral thrush.  

Can a guy, for example, get oral thrush if he only focused on the clitirous?

Thanks in advance.

Mr. Hayes

I bet your boss loves your topic of conversation at work.  lol

You can get oral thrush form oral sex, yes.  If a woman has a yeast infection it can transfer to a mail.  You can thrush of your penis too.  Candida will transfer. Is it something I'd be overly concerned about?  no.  So, end the debate and get on to more interesting topics.  good luck
