Semen is a highly concentrated source of proteins, minerals, natural sugars, and other nutrients. It's a bodily fluid that doesn't present any threat to the digestive tract and is neutralized by the gastric fluids as it reaches the digestive tract. Therefore swallowing the semen/sperm itself probably will not give you any sexually transmitted disease and it doesn't significantly increase the chances of contracting a sexually transmitted disease.
