My husband and I are starting a swinging lifestyle, moderate meaning just touching, kissing, and oral sex...what are the risk of STD and percentage of catching AIDs from oral...ty

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi All of what you have described carry either no risk or very low risk of HIV transmission. Oral sex carries the lowest risk of HIV transmission. Of course using condoms decreases that risk that much more. Also having multiple partners does increase your risk of all types of sexually transmitted infections. Be safe in this new life style. condoms are definitely your friend!

Be well and stay safe, Shannon

Had protected sex, for the first time, do I have HIV?
Urgent: Possible Infection
