Hi Mr.Kull. I read many response from you about the oral sex transmission. I know it is a really low risk; however, if the insertive partner is uncircumcised, will that increase the risk of infection? thank your for your wonderful service.

Response from Mr. Kull

No. You are still coming into contact with saliva, which is not a fluid that is implicated in transmission.

See Saliva as a Barrier for more information.
