Response from Ms. Southall
HI Oral sex carries the lowest risk of HIV transmission. If this is your only risk factor and you were the one receiving the oral sex your risk is extremely small. It is even reasonable to state that for the person receiving oral sex (that is on whom oral sex is being performed) the risk of acquisition of the virus is practically zero. For the person placing his or her mouth on someone else's genitals, the risk may be slightly higher but still very very low. Theoretically, obvious cuts, wounds, sores, or infections in the mouth could raise this risk. But relatively speaking this is still considered to be a low-risk sexual activity as the mouth is not a hospitable place for the HIV virus.
Be well and stay safe, Shannon
