Oral sex from the woman's perspective
Sep 27, 2000
I would like to know how risky it is for a woman to be the recipient of oral sex from a partner whose status may be suspicious. Assuming there are no other factors present, i.e. no active herpes, yeast or bacterial infection, is the woman at minimal risk from this activity?
Response from Mr. Kull
The woman who is receiving oral sex in this scenario is definitely at minimal risk. There are no cases that I'm aware of where HIV has been transmitted to a woman receiving oral sex.
