Higher Risk
Feb 27, 2001

Doctor Feinberg, although this may seem like an obvious question, it's one i'd like to ask. Which carries a higher risk, One act of unprotected Vaginal intercourse, or, several acts of unprotected receptive Oral sex? Thank you for your answer.

Response from Dr. Feinberg

It's not an obvious question, and I can't give you an estimate of the odds because all the data aren't available. However, my instinct is that vaginal intercourse is riskier.
