Bleeding happens when Kissing
« on: January 07, 2010, 06:58:51 AM »
Hi, forums

I read welcome threads very carefully, but still get worried, because my situation is different.
Here is the story: I'm a virgin, I haven't had any sexual experience. But, last night, I met a guy in a bar,and we kissed,it's a "french hot kiss", all I could feel was his tongue swirling in my mouth, after that, I went to lady's room to wash my mouth,I found blood in my saliva. I'm freaking out,because I don't know anything about his situation. If he's positive, am I at risk?
BTW,my gums is very fragile,it's bleeding every time when I brush my teeth!
thanks in advance!!!

Alex,

Kissing is not a risk for hiv infection, regardless of blood being in your mouth. Not only is saliva not infectious, it also contains over a dozen proteins and enzymes that damage hiv and render it unable to infect.

giving oral sex to an unknow, it's a risk? I gave him just for less 5 seconds, and then I realized I needed to use condom, so I stopped, but I saw his precum, so it's a risk for me? Thanks

Your own saliva contains over a dozen elements and proteins which provide a very effective barrier against the transmission of viable HIV. The risk for giving oral is strictly theoretical. In the real world of HIV sexual transmission of HIV is about unprotected vaginal and anal intercourse.

About giving blowjob
« Reply #6 on: January 01, 2012, 04:33:05 PM »
Hello

First I wanna wish evryone here a happy new year.

Second, I ask my question, I carefully read every info on HIV, I always protect myself with condom, but there is one problem, most of sex partener I had like getting a blowjob, of cause, they prefer without condom. I really worry about that, because some of them have precum when getting a blow job. If I give a person (assume he's hiv positive)a blowjob, and he has precum, am I risky of getting HIV?

sorry if the question being posed many times before, I'm juste reluctant to give a blowjob during sex, ans my sex partener is not very happy, so I juste want to be good in sex,so thanks in advance

ps, sorry about my english, I'm not native english speaker and spend most of speaking french, I kinda forget english

I've merged your threads here. In the future please follow a rule of this site which is that members keep all of their entries in the same thread. Thanks for your cooperation.

As you can see your question was answered several months ago in your previous thread. Further, I would say if you are not comfortable with giving unprotected blowjobs, then stop doing it. You are a grownup and responsible for making decisions about what you do sexually that are in line with what is acceptable to you.

Giving oral sex is theoretically risky. But longtime experience and science confirm that the only confirmed risks for the sexual transmission of HIV are unprotected vaginal and anal intercourse. As long as condoms are used everytime for those activities you will be well protected.

Hello

I really don't want to upset you all by my post .

I know that we can not get HIV from oral sex,from precum, or from kissing thanks for our saliva, but what about shooting sperms in the mouth, there would be a load of quantity, our saliva still can protect us?

I'm really sorry

Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, and you will avoid hiv infection. It really is that simple!!!
