Hello mrs Southall

Oct 27, 2012

Thank you for taking the time, you are doing a great job.

I've read a lot of your responses. Some very in reaction to the question of receiving a blowjob. Would you say that a hiv a test is necessary after receiving a blowjob from a woman? That was my only risk....if it was one at all.

Gr Erik

Response from Ms. Southall

Hi Oral sex carries the lowest risk of HIV transmission. If this was your only risk of exposure, then HIV testing is not highly recommended. As long as there were no open sores on her mouth or on your genital area again the likelihood of HIV transmission is very small.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
