What are the risks of being infected with HIV through only receiving oral sex - from a male to a male?
Response from Mr. Kull
It doesn't matter what the sex is of the person performing oral sex on you: HIV is not known to be transmitted through insertive fellatio (a guy getting infected by putting his penis in an infected person's mouth). Saliva is not a fluid that is implicated in HIV transmission.
The risk of insertive fellatio has been discussed in this forum many times. Please read through the Oral Sex Archives for more information on transmission through oral sex.
