Question about oral (not only HIV)


Hello everybody,

I've read in this forum that it's not possible to get hiv by receiving an unprotected blowjob (from a professional sex worker). So thank you for this information. Allthough it's a little bit offtopic: is it possible to get hepatitis B by receiving oral sex (i'm male)? I found very different information about this topic (so says that it's not possible, others sources say that it is possible). Waht do you know?

Hm, sorry once again for being a little bit offtopic. But the blowjob is now 5 and a half month ago and I couldn't stop thinking about it. It worries me a lot and I fear that I caught something from this 3-minute-oral-sex-incident.

ty. have a nice day.



No, I've never heard of someone getting hep B from getting a blowjob. The STIs you might get from a blowjob are herpes, syphilis, gonorrhea or chlamydia.

Your sexual health is nothing to guess about. Anyone who is sexually active should be having a full sexual health care check-up, including but not limited to hiv testing, at least once a year and more often if unprotected intercourse occurs. If you aren't already having regular, routine check-ups, now is the time to start. As long as you make sure condoms are being used for intercourse, you can fully expect your routine hiv tests to return with negative results. Don't forget to always get checked for all the other sexually transmitted infections as well, because they are MUCH easier to transmit than hiv.

And by the way, weren't you posting on the old forum? Just wondering.


Hello Ann,

yes, I wrote in the old forums my fear to catch hiv by receiving a BJ. I tried to log in with my old nickname but it's not possible so I registered once again (with another nickname because of the actual soccer world cup).

thank you for your answer.
