It's possibly without ejaculation and I'm a little skeptical because of the exact way the report was made whether that's true. One person reported--actually from a partner who we brought in--one episode in which the condom broke and then one of those people reported multiple anal exposures that he had not previously revealed on the initial questionnaire Slide The scientific epidemiological evidence collected over the past quarter century is very consistent. The one option is to say, "Yes, it is plausible. From data that we have--and I will let Eric describe it in more detail--laying out the per-contact risk of HIV, having receptive anal sex with or without ejaculation is probably on the order of 10 times riskier than having receptive fellatio with ejaculation. So I think even the 1 out of estimate is probably too high.
Can I get HIV from oral?
Oral sex involves giving or receiving oral stimulation i. But I would emphasize that the number of case reports is extremely low when one considers the size and the duration of this epidemic and that, from a population perspective, should be kept in mind. Well, I agree with what Rick said. Sexual health is often framed in the idea of risk instead of rewards. My question I had was regarding oral sex.
Against All Odds: What Are Your Chances of Getting HIV in These Scenarios? - POZ
There are likely to be certain differences in men who only practice oral sex compared to men who have a larger repertoire of sexual activities. If there is no infectious pre-cum, which is still a hypothetical route of transmission, and there is no ejaculate, there should be no transmission, there should be no exposure to virus. I think when we're talking about risk, we have to talk first about whether transmission has been reported to occur by that route and second, how frequently it occurs. I just want to emphasize again that while there may be certain weaknesses or limitations of the data that Eric has done, I think it's really the best place to start in terms of per-contact risk. Also, some subjects in the study who were thought to have contracted HIV from oral sex reported getting semen in their mouths, which is another factor that increases HIV risk.
Then there is the concept of cumulative risk. To follow up on that, there is some evidence that there is virus in pre-ejaculate, although probably low titer in a relatively small volume. HIV is transmitted through seminal and vaginal fluids, including menstrual fluids. There are different terms used to describe types of oral sex:. Americans really want to know their HIV risk during fellatio—even more so than during anal sex.
