Gay oral sex

Dec 22, 2012

Can you get HIV through gay oral sex?? And what can you contract through oral sex?? Im safe but wish to Keep it that way thankyou :)

Response from Mr. Glenn

Thanks for your question,

Oral sex is considered extremely low risk for getting HIV. What can make it even lower risk is to make sure that both partners are tested beforehand, talk about status before sex, or even consider using a condom.

Hope this helps!


P.S. It doesn't ever matter whether (oral) sex is gay, straight, or otherwise.. what matters is what body parts are touching.

hello erik, (please read closely the dates)
