In brief: Risk lower than HIV

There is some question on the transmission of hcv in a serodiscordant couples - with little if any virus found in seminal fluid - however, if sexual practice incurs small tears in the skin, then blood exposure is possible.
A study in 2003 (sex transm infect 2003;79:160–162) demonstrated no hcv transmission in serodiscordant couples. Based on current data , go ahead.
