HIV risk: oral: Any sexual exchange orally involves a risk of transmission of HIV. The risk is lower with oral sexual activity, but still possible. Ask you provider for an HIV test to be certain.

Depends!: If you are a female performing oral sex on a male: HIV is easily transmitted this way! if you are a male performing oral sex on a female, the likelyhood is very low! but for anyone-why take a chance!
