HIV risk through receiving fellatio

Dec 31, 2013

I recently received oral sex (fellatio) from a woman who is very liberal when it comes to sex. I used a made-in-Mexico condom (not the best quality). What are the risks?

Response from Mr. Glenn

I say all this with the intent of helping you find answering that'll assist you in understanding you health and risk better:

You really need to check your assumptions at the door!

They are distracting you from the truth here. It doesn't matter whether a woman is very liberal when it comes to sex. You're both having sex, right? So it's about what you both are doing in bed and how. Not with who.

If you're looking back on your risk, with regard to your condom, if doesn't matter if it was made in Mexico as long as it didn't tear.

I'm hearing you say that someone gave you a blow job with a condom on your penis. There's no risk of HIV from that.

Hope that helps,
