In brief: French Kissing/oral

Deep french kissing and oral sex increases the risk of acquiring oral hpv infection.
A case control sudy published in 2009 did find that college aged men with oral hpv infection s had more open mouth kissing;oral sex partners than men who did not have hpv infections.Even kissing and hpv was associated with those men who did not have oral sex, .Hpv vaccine can prevent these infections in future.

In brief: HPV can be carried

Hpv can be carried from one area of the body to another, so be careful where you put your lips!
