Oral sex safe?

Even in the era of HIV and STIs imprinted in our consciousness it is surprising to learn how few people continue to practice oral sex without a second thought of possible health concerns.

Some guys don’t even view oral sex as ‘sex’ while others don’t see it as having potential health consequences. Although the risk of contracting HIV through oral sex is very low you should be careful. If you have a small cut, a blister or a sore in or around your mouth. Besides HIV, oral sex can result in the transmission of herpes, gonorrhoea, syphilis, hepatitis and (yes!) even genital warts. So what can you do to limit your risks of infection?
