Risk of HIV in oral thrusting?

Aug 19, 2013

Risk of HIV in oral thrusting?

First of all, this is the only site I trust because people who answer the questions are EXPERTS. Thank you for keeping us informed.

Now, Does thrusting your penis in the mouth of someone else(as if like sexual intercourse) puts you in a significant HIV risk? or puts you in a big risk if ever the receiver is HIV +? Is there something to worry about? In what way HIV could be transmitted here? Could like, infected saliva be forced deep down the urethra and cause HIV?

Thank you for your answers, it is very much appreciated. God bless your team.

Response from Mr. Cordova

Hi there,

The risk of HIV transmission with oral sex is extremely low. 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. Other sexually transmitted infections are readily spread via oral contact and you may need to be checked for these.

Also, saliva is unable to transmit the virus. They are only four fluids in the human body that are capable of transmitting HIV. They are:

1: Blood

2: Semen including pre-ejaculatory fluid

3: Vaginal Secretions

4: Breast Milk

I hope this helps.

In health,


Still paranoid
