1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes

Like at applebee's? No seriously, i believe you meant oral sex.
.. The answer is yes! oral sex can transmit or acquire some stds. Gonorrhea can cause a throat infection and herpes is easy to transmit to the face and mouth as well. Others, like HIV are highly unlikely. Hpv, or the virus that causes genital warts causes 70% of all head and neck cancers and is spread though oral to genital contact.

Sexually transmitted disease is transmitted sexually.
What do you mean by eating out? If you mean oral sex- yes off course , std can be trasnmitted by oral sex and other type of sexual activity. Hpv even can be transmitted by just kissing passionately ( exchanging saliva).
