Improbable: This improbable scenario still is not thought to put anyone at risk of HIV infection. Regardless of past stories and past information we now know that HIV is not caught orally in nearly all instances. We now have hundreds of millions of exposures to verify this. Humans have been bled upon, shat upon, vomited upon, peed upon, ejaculated upon and no transmission to these humans. No mysteries here
