Use of saliva during anal sex

Dec 20, 2014

i had a sex with a man first time . While intercourse he used the saliva in my anal as lubricant...he use condom . does his saliva cause HIV infection....tere is no sours or ulcer inside his mouth .

Response from Mr. Cordova

Saliva cannot transmit the virus. Only blood, semen, breast milk, and vaginal secretions are capable of transmitting the virus. However, in the future I would use lube instead of saliva. It will provide a more comfortable and enjoyable experience, and will lessen the chance of the condom breaking from too much friction.

In health,


Exposure with Condom 3-5 Sec
semen to hand then to hand
