Has anyone ever contracted HIV through: oral sex; kissing.
Is it possible to get HIV from any of those 2 activities.
Response from Dr. Reznik
There have been documented cases of transmission of HIV via oral intercourse. Kissing is a safe activity and is not considered a risk for transmission of HIV.
