Recieving oral sex from my neg partner

Dec 29, 2008

Hey bob, I'm so glad that I found this website. Its going to be a useful tool for me and my partner. We are a male gay couple i'm positive and he is negative. I wanted to know if the risk of him(neg) giving me(positive) oral sex gets higher if he has light bleeding to the gums after he brushes his teeth?

Response from Dr. Frascino


Yes, if your Mr. Right has bleeding gums, the risk of HIV transmission would increase. I'd suggest he brush "after" rather than "before."
