Oral sex risks?
      #178658 - 03/06/06 11:46 PM

I hear that oral sex has a pretty low risk. But does that mean oral sex without ejaculation or oral sex in general?

In general oral sex is very low risk, and the risk is even lower if there is no ejaculation. A Home Access test counselor even told me that there have no been no cases of HIV through oral and that it is safe. They are trained so I would believe what they say

regards from india

Oral sex is considered LOW risk and generally testing is not advisable.

however there are various other STD's which may be transmitted through this route.


Take Care

God Bless you

Stay Well

The above posters did not clarify that receiving and giving are not the same. It's an important distinction.

Receiving oral sex is a theoratical risk...meaning it's never happened in the real world. Not one confirmed case in over 2 decades. Because of this data after all this time receiving oral sex is not considered a the real world.

There are a very few confirmed cases of transmission from giving oral. Giving oral is considered low risk.
