I received oral sex from a commercial sex worker and I am not sure about her status, I am confused with some facts that have been said here and else where
I understand there is a theoretical risk of 1 in 10000 for the person performing the oral sex *sucking* And I understand that there is no real risk for the receiving partner the one *being sucked*
but in this community you say that there is a risk of .5 to 1 for giving and receiving????? which is confusing me and other people.
Many Drs and HIV specialists in the US and UK have told me that the only theoretical risk of oral sex is for the person performing, giving the oral sex to an HIV pos partner because of the fluids getting inside the mouth...View Thread
