Unprotected sexual intercourse with an unknown partner is the biggest risk factor for the transmission of sexually transmitted diseases including HIV.The HIV transmission is theoretically possible with wet kissing.Multiple cuts in the oral cavity may serve as an easy passage for the virus.

The saliva does contain the HIV virus. Practically, the chances of HIV after an oral intercourse are almost zero.Please use a condom. The condom offers protection against STD. In the heat of the moment, silly decisions about penetrative sex too may be taken.

This can multiply dangers about STD and unwanted pregnancy. A condom kept handy is always welcome.Abstinence or masturbation are healthier options.
