RE: July 22nd answer

Jul 25, 2003


In this answer you say that hiv transmission is only probable in insertive or receptice vaginal, anal, or oral sex. From all of the previous posts you and everyone else basically says hiv is only possible from receptive NOT insertive oral sex. Has something changed?

Response from Mr. Kull

No, nothing has changed. I should have been more clear about the difference between receptive or insertive oral sex. The risk for transmission through oral sex is quite small, and cases of transmission are primarily associated to receptive oral sex with an HIV infected man with ejaculation in the mouth (the person who blows/sucks a man and gets cum in his/her mouth). There are few cases of transmission to a person performing oral sex on a woman, and no evidence that people get infected when being the insertive partner (the one who gets their genitals sucked).

If something major changes in terms of our understanding of oral sex transmission, you'll hear about it.
