Insertive Oral with Abrasion

Apr 30, 2002

I know that getting a blow job is very low risk for HIV but what if there was an abrasion on my penis at the time? I have heard of the case where HIV was possibly attributed to a biting incident during receptive oral but I'm unclear as to how blood was involved from the biter. If the person I was involved with is correct in their assesment that they had no open sores and they had healthy gums, does the abrasion even matter? Thanks for your time, you perform a wonderful service here.

Response from Mr. Kull

The abrasion should not matter because the saliva of infected people is not implicated as a fluid that transmits HIV.
