HIV from deep kissing?
Feb 4, 2008
I recently kissed another man who is gay. I am married. We did a lot of deep kissing with tongue action, nothing more. I am worried to death that I might have been at risk for HIV infection. There was no blood, and I saw no sores, etc. in the guy's mouth. Is there any risk for HIV infection on end?

As the old song goes, "You must remember this, a kiss is just a kiss . . . as time goes by . . . ."
Your worries are probably more related to guilt over playing tonsil hockey with another dude than to contracting HIV.
