Like all sexual activity, oral sex carries some risk o\ue003 HIV transmission when one partner is known to be in\ue003ected with HIV, when either partner\u2019s HIV status is not known, and/or when one partner is not monogamous or injects drugs. Even though the risk o\ue003 transmitting HIV through oral sex is much lower than that o\ue003 anal or vaginal sex,numerous
unin\ue003ected partner are the only ways that individuals can be completely protected \ue003rom the sexual transmission o\ue003 HIV.
However, by using condoms or other barriers between the mouth and genitals, individuals can reduce their risk o\ue003
contracting HIV or another S\ue002D through oral sex.
Oral sex involves giving or receiving oral stimulation (i.e., sucking or licking) to the penis, the vagina, and/or the anus.
Fellatio is the technical term used to describe oral contact with the penis. Cunnilingus is the technical term which
describes oral contact with the vagina. Anilingus (sometimes called \u201crimming\u201d) re\ue003ers to oral-anal contact. Studies
indicate that oral sex is commonly practiced by sexually active male-\ue003emale and same-gender couples o\ue003 various ages,
including adolescents. Although there are only limited national data about how o\ue003ten adolescents engage in oral sex,
some data suggest that many adolescents who engage in oral sex do not consider it to be \u201csex;\u201d there\ue003ore they may use
oral sex as an option to experience sex while still, in their minds, remaining abstinent. Moreover, many consider oral
sex to be a sa\ue003e or no-risk sexual practice. In a national survey o\ue003 teens conducted \ue003or Te Kaiser Family Foundation,
26% o\ue003 sexually active 15- to 17-year-olds surveyed responded that one \u201ccannot become in\ue003ected with HIV by having
unprotected oral sex,\u201d and an additional 15% didn\u2019t know whether or not one could become in\ue003ected in that manner.
Te risk o\ue003 HIV transmission \ue003rom an in\ue003ected partner through oral sex is much less than the risk o\ue003 HIV transmission
\ue003rom anal or vaginal sex. Measuring the exact risk o\ue003 HIV transmission as a result o\ue003 oral sex is very di\ue001cult. Additionally,
because most sexually active individuals practice oral sex in addition to other \ue003orms o\ue003 sex, such as vaginal and/or anal sex,
when transmission occurs, it is di\ue001cult to determine whether or not it occurred as a result o\ue003 oral sex or other more risky
sexual activities. Finally, several co-\ue003actors may increase the risk o\ue003 HIV transmission through oral sex, including: oral
ulcers, bleeding gums, genital sores, and the presence o\ue003 other S\ue002Ds. What is known is that HIV has been transmitted
