Is this oral sex?

Jan 18, 2003

Doctor Ryan, Is this oral sex when I sucked a guy's fingers or toes where there were old cuts? How long does it normally take for a small cut to be non-infectious even I licked/sucked on it?

Response from Mr. Kull

No. Oral sex refers to being either the receptive or insertive partner in oral-penile, oral-vaginal, or oral-anal contact.

There is no evidence to support a risk for infection through the activity you describe.


blood contact?
Do I have to retest? Your Opinion Please...
