Sexual Practices and Associated Risk of HIV Transmission

Safer sex: extremely low- or no-risk practices
Touching, massaging, hugging, caressing
Social (dry) kissing
Probably safe: very low-risk practices (small theoretic risk)
French (wet) kissing
Mutual masturbation (if no cuts on hands, or ulcers or lesions on genitals of either partner)
Vaginal sex with a male or female condom (put latex or polyurethane condom in place before any penetration)
Fellatio with condom (place latex condom on partner's penis before oral contact)
Cunnilingus with dental dam (place latex dam over partner's vaginal area before oral contact)
Anilingus (rimming) with dental dam (place latex dam over anus before oral contact)
Contact with urine (water sports; only with intact skin, avoid contact with mouth)
Using one's own sex toys (no sharing of any toys that contact body fluids)
Anal sex with condom (place latex condom on penis prior to penetration, probably safer with use of ample water-based lubrication)
Possibly unsafe: no strong proof, but some evidence that transmission can occur
Fellatio (sucking partner's penis and swallowing semen)
Cunnilingus (oral contact with partner's genital area and vaginal secretions)
Anilingus without a latex dam
Unsafe sex: high risk of transmitting HIV
Anal intercourse without a latex condom (highest risk is to the receptive partner)
Anal penetration with the hand (fisting) or other rectal trauma without a latex glove or fisting followed by anal intercourse
Anal douching in combination with anal sex
Vaginal intercourse without a male or female condom
