Response from Dr. Frascino


There are a variety of different STDs that can be transmitted via oral sex, with or without semen. It's also important to point out that there are different levels of risk, depending on the STD and type of oral sex. STDs that cause sores and blisters (like syphilis and herpes) are easy to get from all types of oral sex getting or giving. Gonorrhea, chlamydia and NGU can be acquired from sucking and/or getting sucked. Hepatitis A, intestinal parasites and herpes can be easily passed through rimming. The risk of acquiring HIV from any type of oral sex is very low.
