Sex activities and risk - NHS
Oral sex involves using the mouth, lips, or tongue to stimulate the penis fellatio , vagina cunnilingus , or anus anilingus of a sex partner. The penis and testicles and the vagina and area around the vagina are also called the genitals or genital area. Oral sex is commonly practiced by sexually-active adults. Many STDs, as well as other infections, can be spread through oral sex. Anyone exposed to an infected partner can get an STD in the mouth, throat, genitals, or rectum. The risk of getting an STD from oral sex, or spreading an STD to others through oral sex, depends on several things, including.
Oral Sex & You: What you need to know to prevent sexually transmitted infections (STIs)
Think about it: Oral sex puts you into contact with skin and body fluids—semen, vaginal fluids, blood, urine, feces, breast milk—any of which can contain disease-causing viruses or bacteria… And spitting out these fluids will not protect you from infection. Simple acts like shaving too close and flossing leave tiny cuts that can allow viruses and bacteria to enter the body. Sexually transmitted infections STIs that can be passed from one partner to another through oral sex include herpes, gonorrhea, chlamydia, syphillis and Human papillomavirus HPV.
Many people question whether oral sex is really sex. That depends on how you define sex, but one thing is clear—oral sex isn't inherently safe sex. Sexually transmitted infections STIs are definitely a risk, at least if you don't take proper precautions. Oral sex is a relatively low-risk activity for HIV transmission, particularly when compared to vaginal or anal sex. The risk of HIV is largely limited to the person performing oral sex.
