Oral sex?

Jun 25, 2001


Thanks for all the questions you are answering. I have one! I have had oral sex on a couple of times. I never came in contact with cum or blood. I did cum in a guys mouth once. Should I be worried about HIV? This is an inportant question for me. I am so worried I can hardly sleep.

Response from Mr. Kull

If you do not get blood, semen, or vaginal/cervical secretions in your mouth when engaging in oral sex, then infection is practically impossible. Most cases of HIV transmission through oral sex can be traced back to ejaculate (semen) or blood getting into the person's mouth. There is no undisputed evidence that a person receiving oral sex has been infected.

Please read the CDC's recent fact sheet on oral sex (
