Doc, midway through protected vaginal intercourse, I teabagged my partner ie dipped my sac into her mouth (what I like to call teabagging). She is HIV positive - is this still considered oral sex - with the same risks as normal fellatio of the shaft?

Thanks Doc.

Response from Dr. Frascino


Teabagging, eh? Hmmm . . . one wonders what kind of action you'd get if you ordered a double espresso!?!

I see no HIV risk from teabagging. I should also mention there is really no significant HIV risk from oral sex on the shaft of a penis. The only potential risk would involve the head (urethra).

Dr. Bob

not another hypothetical risk question
