Receiving Oral Sex

Question

Last week (march 20th) I had an Oral sex with a guy that involves deep kissing (no bleeding of gum) and when he wanted to suck my dick he noticed some pre-cum coming out from my dick and he clean it with his hands and cheeks. He went for test early this morning and was discovered to be HIV+ but I did my own test in February and I was tested negative after 37days of unprotected sex(not with person I had Oral sex with).

Now my question is can I contact HIV through the above oral sex (I'm the receiving partner and knowing fully well that Saliva contains some enzymes that prevent HIV infection. Thank you for your continous enlightment.

Answer

Hi The risk of HIV transmission with oral sex is extremely low. It is even reasonable to state that for the person receiving oral sex (that is on whom oral sex is being performed) the risk of acquisition of the virus is practically zero. For the person placing his or her mouth on someone else's genitals, the risk may be slightly higher but still very very low. Theoretically, obvious cuts, wounds, sores, or infections in the mouth could raise this risk. But relatively speaking this is still considered to be a low-risk sexual activity as the mouth is not a hospitable place for the HIV virus. Please note that other sexually transmitted infections are readily spread via oral contact and you may need to be checked for these.

In short, your risk is incredibly low to no risk.

Be well and stay safe, Shannon
