Blowing air into your vagina can kill you dear. Don't let anyone do that to you just turn around and smack him. I forget exactly what can happen but I think it can send an air bubble to your heart or something like that.

Never let your partner ever do this to you again! air trapped in the vagina can cause infections and overall pain and discomfort for you. I've never heard of this vacuum effect, but this is definitely not the safest sexual practice to be doing.

Air will not cause you any harm, it in itself will not cause infections. It definitely will not send bubbles to your heart or anything like that. Air often naturally enters the vagina, during a pap smear for example.
Do not worry about it being dangerous unless there was excessive pressure which could cause some stretching and in some extreme case a tare internally - you would tell this by some bleeding. It isn't too clear what exactly he is doing, but if it did not feel comfortable then it is an indication to avoid doing it or letting it happen.

I too have heard that you are not supposed to blow into a woman's vagina.  Oddly enough, I heard this from my boyfriend who said he learned it in school.  I did a little researching online and this is what I found.

"very rare occurrence. When air is blown or forced directly into a vagina — without allowing any air to escape — an air embolism (the abnormal presence of air in the cardiovascular system) could form, which can be fatal. Women who are more at risk for this unlikely possibility are those whose pelvic vessels are enlarged (meaning, increased blood supply to the vagina) due to a condition such as trauma and possibly pregnancy. So, if a very large amount of air were to be blown or forced into their vaginal canals, it's possible that the air could enter their bloodstream, causing a blockage in a blood vessel. As a result, some of these women, perhaps including the pregnant women's fetus, may experience complications. In extraordinary cases, some of these women (and the fetus) may die if the embolism travels to the heart or lungs.

If you like blowing air into your girlfriend's vulva, and if your girlfriend enjoys the sensations brought on by this, it may give you two some peace of mind to know that gently puffing some air into or breathing on a woman's vulva during oral pleasuring appears to be okay. However, it might be better to suck, kiss, lick, probe, press (with lips or fingers), or lightly nibble a woman's vulva or clitoris than blow or force air directly into her vagina. Safer and enjoyable oral sex on a woman mostly involves using a dam, finding out what feels good to her, and practice."

So, basically you're probably ok, but if it were me, I wouldn't let him do it again.  Definitely don't let him do it if you're pregers.  Also, oral sex is fine, but don't let him spit directly into your vagina... just think of all the bacteria in his mouth... gross.  I know they do it in porn, but seriously, that's how you get an infection....
