STD through breast contact

May 28, 2012

Hello All,

I had mammary intercourse (with no condom) with a prostitue. Can I get STD for this because what I've heard is that herpes can be contracted through "skin-to-skin" contact while at the same time I've heard you can't get STD with mammary intercourse. Thanks All for your help.

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi You cannot get HIV this way. HIV transmission occurs with direct exchange of body fluid. mammary intercourse doesn't present that situation.

You should have no fear about HIV transmission occurring this way.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon

French kissing with gums that were bleeding may cause HIV?
