LOL, that can taken the wrong way...

So the oil is comeing out from around the Plug? Try replaceing the plug with a new one, you can pick them up cheap and any auto parts store, or even cheaper at a dismantlers.
or replace the gasket.

Are the threads striped?
Is the threads wore/rounded out?

PCV valve working? I agree that you need to replace the plug...when I say replace, I mean new...

If the threads are stripped, I am pretty sure that someone makes a self-tapping insert that can but put in place, and that it contains a newer but perhaps smaller plug. I have never seen it, just heard of it.

I have seen them, they are a PITA. If you have to go that route put thead lock on the bottom plug.
