FIRST TIME ORAL SEX
Jan 11, 2003

DEAR DOCTOR,

MY GIRL AND ME ARE BOTH VIRGINS. IF WE PERFORM UNPROTECTED ORAL SEX ARE THERE ANY CHANCES STILL OF GETTING HIV/AIDS OR ANY STDs? AND IF SOLLOWED IS THERE A RISK THEN?

Response from Mr. Kull

If you are both in fact free of any sexually transmitted infections (be sure that virgin doesn't just mean that neither of you engaged in penile vaginal sex; certain sexually transmitted infections can be transmitted through oral sex), then you can't transmit STIs to one another. This also requires that you don't have exposures through contact with others. STI transmission can only happen when one person is infected with an STI.

Oral sex poses a smaller risk for STI transmission when compared to unprotected vaginal and anal sex.
