I have a few questions..1. any trials, etc. on women with hiv and ageing done by race and age? 2. Any info on lesbians with HIV who contracted this disease by any means and how they are coping? 3. who the heck said that you can use saran wrap as an oral sex barrier?.I am an HIV peer advocate and I try to keep up on things so if anyone has some REAL answers I would be glad to know.
And by the way the 3rd question I have heard for a while and I REALLY want to know if there is any truth in it.

Of course you can use saran wrap as a barrier for cunnilingus. Of course, since cunnilingus is not considered an HIV risk, you'd really be protecting against pathogens which can be transmitted via that route, like gonnorrhea, chlamydia and the like.

Insofar as lesbian-specific scientific trials or studies, that's a tough one. As lesbians remain almost completely untouched by the pandemic, the mode of transmission (heterosexual sex, needle sharing) would likely lump someone into an existing category as regards the epidemiology.

"Many people, especially in the gay community, turn to oral sex as a safer alternative in the age of AIDS. And with HIV rates rising, people need to remember that oral sex is safer sex. It's a reasonable alternative."
