Since there is a transference of body fluids during oral sex the Aids virus can be transmitted during this act. Blood, semen, male pre-seminal fluid (cum) and female vaginal fluid could contain the virus and the cells in the mucus membranes in your mouth could allow the virus to enter your body and in this way infect you.
The risk of contracting HIV is increased should the skin in your mouth, as well as the mucus membranes, have any lesions, cuts, abrasions, ulcers or cold sores, as the Aids virus can far easier penetrate the cells.
The risk will increase if
- your partner ejaculates (comes) in your mouth;
- your partner has another sexually transmitted disease.
- Should you be receive a blow job, you can contract the virus if your partner performing the oral sex is infected with the HIV virus.
- If he/she carries the virus, saliva and blood from his/her mouth could enter your system while having oral sex through the urethra (opening on the tip of your penis), your anus or vagina, if even the smallest cuts, abrasions or sores are present.
Since the risk of infection does exist in oral sex, protect yourself as far as possible, but note, it is not 100% safe, and still carries a certain amount of risk.
- Use a condom and should you be allergic to latex condoms, have a look at polyurethane condoms.
- Use a latex barrier (dental dam or condom cut open and used flat) or plastic food wrap.
Although a lot of people do not like using condoms, either because of personal choice or religious considerations, strong evidence does indicate that it offers some form of protection, although condoms are also not the perfect defense.
Some arguments are offered that the use of condoms promote promiscuity, and although there may be merit in that statement, the flip-side of non-use could lead to even more people contracting HIV.
