Cunnilingus with HIV+
      #27897 - 02/07/02 02:59 PM

Dear people,

I am wondering whether a man performing cunnilingus on a positive woman without a condom is at a great risk of contracting HIV. Please tell me. It is so confusing: some sources say the risk is negligible, even with bleeding gums, whereas others say it's desperately high risk. What is the risk? If you are positive, do u think u could have contracted it from cunnilingus? Do bleeding gums increase the chances dramatically? What about a mild sore throat? Have there been any documented cases? I really need your advice.

Good luck and take care!

I got the following from:

http://www.positive.org/Home/faq

I felt it answered your question better then I could even begin to.

Can I get HIV from Cunnilingus?

Yes. Cunnilingus, oral sex on a woman, is considered "possibly unsafe" without a latex or plastic barrier. If the woman has her period or a vaginal infection, it's considered "unsafe." "Possibly unsafe" activities have a smaller chance of transmitting HIV than behaviors in the "unsafe" category (which generally involve semen or blood coming into contact with mucous membranes in the rectum, vagina, or mouth). "Possibly unsafe" activities do, however, carry a risk of HIV (and STD) transmission.

Vaginal secretions can carry the virus and may be infectious under certain conditions. For example, if the secretions come into contact with open sores or small cuts in the mouth (such as those you may get from brushing or flossing your teeth) or the throat (such as when it's sore), there's a risk of viral transmission. If the woman receiving cunnilingus has her period or a vaginal infection, her secretions can hold a higher concentration of HIV, so there's a higher risk of transmission at these times.

You can also transmit other STDs during unprotected cunnilingus - like herpes, syphilis, hepatitus B, molluscum contagiosum, and yeast infections. And it is theoretically possible (but almost unheard-of) to transmit gonorrhea or chlamydia during unprotected oral sex.

To have safe cunnilingus, use plastic wrap (the regular household kind), or a dental dam, or a condom (unlubed, flavored if you want) cut up the side and held flat against the ENTIRE genital area, as a barrier. A little lube on the side next to her genitals will increase sensation for her; putting some jam or honey on the other side might make it even more fun for her partner. Be sure NOT to reverse the barrier. Only one side should come into contact with the genitals, and only the other side should come into contact with the partner's mouth. Also, don't use one barrier on more than one person, or transfer it from anus to vagina.

But all this seems to be largely theoretical. I was told by GUM clinic professionals, here in London, that transmission is virtually impossible, no matter what! I am serious. Apparently, despite all this, there are only two properly documented cases, and about 5 dubious ones, throughout the history of HIV/AIDS epidemic. HAS ANYBODY BEEN INFECTED IN THIS WAY? Do you know the actual data? Please tell!!

According to aidsRC HIV does not cause AIDS. Let's leave this for a moment, whether this is true or not. Talking about the risk of _HIV_ transmission (not AIDS certainly - you can't transmit that), what would it be in the encounter that I have mentioned? WITH a somewhat sore throat, no open bleeding in the mouth of the male, very brief contact with vagina and minimum amount of body fluids exchanged. I would like to know about KNOWN cases of this type of transmission (cunnilingus) in general.

Please respond.

Your right and I spoke to a Lesbian recentley and told her the AIDS dissident view and she was like wow your right I have never known of any lesbians who have had "AIDS". Now she like tell me more. Now she comes to me with her own ideas and we talk. More of our Lesbian sistas need to speak up and say that that infectious AIDS is a lie.
