oral insertive felatio

Question: 

Hi

just wanted to know if insertive felatio for 10-15 seconds with a street worker in India will have any sort of risk.

Does it require any test.

thankyou so much in advance

Answer: 

Greetings,

Thank you for using the AIDS Vancouver Online Helpline as your source of HIV/AIDS related information.

First and foremost, receiving oral sex is considered a neglible risk for HIV. What this means is that though there are body fluids involved there have actually been no reported cases of HIV transmission in this way. Rest assured, your risk is minimal for this situation, however I would recommend to all sexually active people that regular testing for HIV and other sexually transmitted infection be part of their regular routine. This could be every 3 months, 6 months or yearly, as it pertains to your needs.

Also, keep in mind that HIV does not discriminate and can impact anyone, regardless of profession, socio-economic status, gender, ethnicity, sexual preference, etc.

Please feel free to send any new questions you may have.

In Health,

Katie
