Response from Dr. Hightow-Weidman
Hello there- The chance of getting or giving anyone HIV through rimming is very slim. In order for HIV to pass between persons, there has to be body fluids (blood or semen) infected with HIV going into another body. That would include unprotected anal sex, vaginal sex, or thru needle/transfusion/direct blood exposure. Most experts believe rimming is safe sex in terms of HIV and there have been no cases reported of HIV transmission through oral-anal sex.
Take care, LHW
